    aight... i put my radiator in, headers, exhaust, fixed my gas tank gauges, put tanks back in, cleaned up wires with zip ties......

    fired the truck up and now sounds like i got a rod knock!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    anyhow my oil gauge doesnt work.. never has... i bought a new oil sending unit, hooked up the wire to it, still doesnt work. I even swapped out my entire gauge cluster ( had the big gas tank now have the factory tach - but tach is broke /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif) anyhow... there is only one wire to a oil solenoid.. what am i missing... where does that wire go from the solenoid? straight to the gauge?
    i wanna fix that before i try and diagnose the motor problem....

    right now the gauge when you turn the key on... goes past 60psi and stays there.. start the truck and it still stays there..... kind of like when my gas tanks did that and it was a open wire.....???????
