    Well I sure hope that's truly the issue and don't want to rain on any pre-parade celebration,

    But...

    Your fuel filler cap is supposed to prevent vaccum buildup in the fuel tank. Shouldn't...

    And the problem BETTER go away once the speedo is disconnected! The dimmer control gets it's wires from the speedo, right? If the speedo is disconnected, so is the entire illumination control...

    I know the 74 was transitional in spots, but according to the wiring diagram, your hazard switch DOES have a light on it. Either your bulb is burned out, your connectors are corroded, or maybe that's...

    And I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate place for this, but since it's related...

    While reviewing the wiring diagrams for the 260, I turned up a couple mistakes. I don't know if these are...

    boosd,

    SteveJ summed up the problem when he said that the Green/White wire is somewhere shorted to the Red/Blue wire. Problem is figuring out where that short is. Here's one idea that might help...

    Steve, Haha. Yeah, that's one of the things that gives me trouble with distance diagnosis. That and the ability to explain things in a way that others understand. It might make sense in my head, but...
  9. Yup. That's what I'm thinking. The thing that...

    Yup. That's what I'm thinking.

    The thing that worries me the most though is that all of this started after some melties happening. I just hope it isn't melted insulation buried down in the harness...

    Maybe it's just me, but I'd much rather have that 280 than that series 1 barn find (maybe hit in front maybe not?) that's on ebay for stupid money.

    That 280 is fantastic. I still don't think I'd...

    The pot doesn't go OFF-ON instead of gradual. He's got a very low resistance connection somewhere between the output of the pot and ground. That connection is sinking away most of the current through...

    I don't think it has anything to do with the parking lights. He said he disconnected all of them and the problem persisted. He also said that he can crank the dimmer all the way down and the fuse...

    Not sure what's going on, but tossing out some stuff to think about.

    How do you get a continual rich condition?

    - Nozzles not adjusted properly - Shouldn't be rich at 2 turns down (assuming...

    Very nice!

    Are you gonna rattle can the block or you got more elaborate plans for that?

    The problem is in the dash illumination light section, but it's not the dimmer switch, it's somewhere else. Something in your illumination lamp section went almost short and is hogging current. It's...

    Excellent. Either a little tighter on the current banjo washers or going back to the old washers then.

    Even though the bowl gasket has been cleared of issues, I do have one more thought about that...

    If you did the float level on the car I have confidence in the results.

    I've never experienced the bowl gaskets leaking with new gaskets. They always seemed to do a good job of sealing. I guess...

    Did you do the clear line check on or off the car? If you did it off, I would recheck it on the car.

    You used new bowl gaskets and banjo washers?

    It ran fine yesterday without any of this behavior? The dead spot off idle didn't start until today?

    I like that movie. I don't think I ever saw it uncut though. I've only ever seen it on regular TV so I'm sure there are parts I've never seen.

    It was fun hunting for a Z. Thanks Julio!
