    I seem to recall the "Water in fuel" sensor wire being yellow. I'd splice the two pinkish wires, in fact that's what I did (I'm almost 100% sure)

    you are welcome to the wire harness. i also have all the a/c stuff if you want it. also you will want the throttle cable too cause its longer. when you come buy to pick up that axle you can snag that stuff if you want. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'll take all the extra stuff except for the tranny lines /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I have a 4 spd and dont need auto tranny stuff. Gotta convert my '79 K10 first then build a second truck from scratch for wheeling (seeing how I have 75% of all the parts I need to do it) /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
