    Classic Enterprises Wheelhouse

    All, I need to repair the wheel houses on one of my Scramblers. As is they have rusted through in the flat side wall meets the tub (not the top curved portion). CE sells a replacement wheel house but it seems pricey for me just needing the flat sidewall section repaired. Does anyone know of a...

    Turn signal and side marker flashing when braking.

    When I apply pressure to the brakes, and the lights are on, the side markers and turn signals illuminate and flash in an alternating pattern. Any ideas on what this is all about? It seems too intricate to be anything other than by design. In a previous life this Overlander was a snow plow at the...

    Any Overlanders titled/registered in the U.S.?

    I finally got my Overlnader up and running and I now need to get it registered in Illinois. Unfortunately the Title I received has the vehicle listed as a Scrambler. Anyone know of an Overlander titled as such in the States?

    Proportioning Valve only connected to front brakes

    I'm working on taking the Postal for a test drive and had an interesting discussion with my neighbor regarding the brakes. As is, I've only run a new hardline from the rear resevoir of the master cylinder to the front of the proportioning valve, and then new hardlines from the proportioning...

    Roll over check valve and liquid check valves

    Anyone know what the possible ramifications might be if I simply loop or plug the two lines meant for the liquid check valve (LCV) or roll over check valve (ROCV)? I'm using the 15 gallon tank as a temporary solution and do not have the LCV or ROCV. The postal will essentially be driven to a...

    Fuel tank compatability from 4 cyl to 6 cyl

    HI everyone. I'm trying to get my 84 postal (6 cylinder) up and running but I need a fuel tank. The fuel tank that came with the postal doesn't have a sending unit or any of the hardware needed. I do have a spare fuel tank with all of the hardware from my 84 base model (4 cylinder) scrambler...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    The first thing I did was get my brother's circuit tester instead of using the multimeter. I attached the positive lead of the circuit tester to the positive post of the car battery. I then removed the plug from the switch. With the gear lever in the park position, I touched the tip of the...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    FLCJ8, I appreciate the "novel" of information and suggestions. The amount of help being provided to me is much appreciated. I should have a half an hour or so this evening to give it another go and test the NSS itself. I do have a couple of questions about your procedure. 1. What do you...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    With my multimeter set at DC 20, I obtained a reference measurement from the battery of 12.20. Then I placed the negative lead of my multimeter on the NSS wire (black wire), while simultaneously connecting the positive lead of the multimeter to the positive post of the battery. The reading I got...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    Ag4ever, In your instructions you say to: "Shift into park and test for continuity from a good ground to the black wire from the NSS (or voltage from the positive terminal to the black wire). Shift to neutral (after ensuring the wheels are chocked) and test again. If you don’t get continuity...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    With the few spare minutes I had during lunch I tried to tackle the next few steps as outlined by ag4ever. Without fail the boot had some pretty rusty screws with virtually non-existent phillips channels in the heads. After a few minutes with the dremel I was able to get a straight edge scored...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    I tested the neutral safety switch function with the multimeter. The battery was reading 12.21V at the start of the test. With the car in PARK, I placed the multimeter positive lead (red) on the positive post of the battery, and then connected the negative lead (black) to the switch return wire...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    To begin, thank you so much to all of you who are helping me with this. This community has been beyond helpful. I'm sure my questions are very elementary and novice to you all. But to me, it's teaching me so much that I will hopefully carry on with me and someday teach my boys. But I digress...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    So I just tested the blue wire by placing the positive probe of my multimeter into it. I then placed the negative probe onto the alternator housing. I set my multimeter to 2000m DC Voltage. When my wife turned the ignition (while holding our 1 year old -she's a very patient woman), the...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    Well this evening I finally got some time to work on this problem. I was able to get the starter to crank via FLCJ8's method with the jumper cables. It's good to know my brand new starter and battery work. I guess now I need to figure out why I'm not able to get it to crank via they ignition...

    Starter solenoid wire identification

    FLCJ8, thanks for the info on the blue and red wire distinction. I just checked and you are correct that the solenoid has the "I" and "S" stamping. I didn't have much time to work on it today but I did have time to see if I could manually turn over via the crank. Good news is that it turned...
