Come on, you know that the fuses "look" good even when they're popped. Check them for real.

You need to install a J-West fuse box in that beast....... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif) Gregs top ten 10 mods under 100 dollars.

I fiddled with it, then got called in for dinner. I'm not even hungry when I want to work on my toy.

More on this tomorrow. I'll look closer at the fuses.

That's so weird, I looked closer at the fuses, lo and behold, #7 was popped. I traced it back to wonky wires in the license plate light wiring that was a bit brittle and was shorting out. Now the dash lights and both license plate lights work.

I'm glad I figured that out. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/KMA.gif)

I had an issue on the '71 several years ago, the engine would intermittently cut out and it was driving me crazy. Ended up being a fuse on the relay board - broken right at the end where the metal transitions to the end cup form that inserts into one of the holder tangs.

Only found the problem by removing the fuse from the holder to clean the tangs ... looks are deceiving.

Toldja. I really don't want to try counting the number of popped 914 fuses I have found only when I have removed the fuse from the panel...

Mea culpa. I always seem to make electrical issues into something bigger (and scarier) in my empty head.

Practical and pragmatic investigation proved that the issue was cracked license plate wires to which I put new ends on cleanly stripped wire with new shrink tube.

You guys were right...........

This is exactly why you shouldn't do the JWest fuse box. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) Search "license plate lights" and you'll find your not alone. Those chicken shit little bastards have bitten a lot of peeps in the ass.

I wouldn't worry about we have all done the same @ one stage or another,my electrical skills are somewhat lacking,however it go's I generally get there. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) .
There seems to be 2 camps on the J-West board.....what gives (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) .

I had my car up at Richard's shop in San Clemente. It's nice to get a real 911 expert to look your build over and tune the car. He re-jetted the carbs, re-torqued the heads and adjusted the valves.

It runs so much better, it was lean all around. He also caught a few loose bolts here and there, gave it the once over.

My take on why people "like" the JWest fuse panel....mainly for the modern blade fuses.

I didn't like the way the wires were directed into the JWest fuse panel.
Seemed like you had to bend the wires 180 degrees on one side, so that could with time stress those wires out and give you big electrical headaches down the road.

I simply cleaned up my factory fuse panel, installed all new fuses and enjoyed the way the wiring all connected to panel without any crazy 180 degree bends like one side of the JWest panel had.
