Re: Another A/C Delete Question

Yep that may work fine. The Pulley may still be an issue, but you can get pulleys from TOYWAGEN, and some one posted a pulley that was off a gm/ford? that had the proper width/ shaft hole and was only less than 20 dollars...

Re: Compelled to Upgrade the Radiator

Napaonline used to sell those, but they had an extra spout that had to be capped or closed, and the price was reasonable.

Re: Compelled to Upgrade the Radiator

The coolant return line to which you are referring to is the steel pipe that runs from the heater by-pass hose on the waterpump to the heater valve and the expansion tank connects to it as well.

Re: Wiring question - using a different gauge wire and one fuse box question

Depends on what current track you are in. 16 is used for most Dash wiring, where as Cigarette Lighter is 14, 16, 18, are for most things, but high current is heavier gauge. Kammy at www.cabby-info.com has the conversion for the metric over SAE as in 1.5 to what.

Re: Wiring question - using a different gauge wire and one fuse box question

Shows round pins for the molex connectors shells.
