Hey Horsewidower, looks like you got a real winner there!

I was looking around and located this colorized wiring diagram. Someone on the board provided it. The file did not keep the attributes, so I don't know who specifically. Hope they don't mind me posting it here.

GTV6 wiring Diagram A.pdf

Right now my car is double-covered, but outside in my brothers driveway. I imagine a field mice motel and nary a wire unchewed by now!!

edit:

Here's a close-up for rear taillamps. Says Compiled by Gavin Rhodes.

Maybe outer thermal spring is broken, maybe not. Take a pair of needlenose pliers and see it you can rotate it any more counterclockwise. If so, yes out spring is broken if you can't move it anymore CCW then it is just over tensioned. Not likely but we can hope can't we.

The final proof is in the testing again when it is off engine and you do same test CCW and see if outer spring is broken behind top of eccentric near outer ende of pulley.

Also check for binding on pivot point. Inner spring when be OK I am sure.

Long day of removing stuff.

I read Greg Gordon's L-Jetronic piece on his site. Given the number of things that appear to be amiss, both in wiring, and mechanicals, it seemed best to just remove everything in the way, or amiss and start from scratch. The ac compressor, and dryer (the rest to follow) have been removed; it was not working and had lost it's charge. Took off the air filter, intake tube and air meter. Also the many hoses that are attached. Some of them had holes, and one of the plastic "T"s cracked. Pulled the thermostat housing apart, lots of yuck. I'll need to figure out how to flush the block, I'm concerned that there is a lot of yuck in the coolant system.

Long productive day.
