Hi -

I suspect youhave the right solenoid. Some years do not use the I terminal (Prestolite Jeeps?), and the OEM solenoids for them just delete it. The service part has the I terminal; when...

Yes, unless they have been removed. They have to - each rod controls an axle, and putting one in low and the other in high would be bad.

Which TSM are you looking at? I suggest you look at the 1982 wiring diagram on the Tom Collins site for an example of how the Delco alternator is wired. It has 3 connections -

The Felpro box will tell you about RTV at the corners. The torque is given in the TSM.

Professional gasket scraper on the block. Since you are replacing the pan, no need to clean it. Otherwise I would take it to the wire brush in the bench grinder. Make sure the sealing surface is...

+1 on this - often you can help old motors a lot with a clean-and-lube procedure. Decades of dirt accumulation and old grease takes its toll.

If gas was coming out of the bowl vents on top, that's unquestionably a stuck float.

I have found that the 2100/2150 float will stick open if the adjustment tang on the float is not perfectly...

You can probably find a used board from a wreck/part-out if you don't want to repair what you have. According to my parts book, the '76-80 boards are all the same - maybe later too, but my book ends...

There is a sticky thread above on ammeter bypass. It's been done to death.

"Modern" implies much higher amp rating than the original alternator. The ammeter likely cannot handle that.

There are opposing views.

Pretty sure the 226 flathead Continental engine used in Utility Wagons is a drop-in for the 230 OHC. A good engine, but a big step down in power. And this would be a '50s era engine you'd need to...

Yeah, I'd think so. IIRC the floor is reinforced in the area of the bolt holes. Be sure to add similar reinforcing for the new holes - you don't want the seat coming loose from the floor in a wreck.
