When I installed the temperature sensor in my homemade fuel manifold, I had a thought: “I better add a ground wire to complete the electrical path, or I’ll bet that temperature gauge won’t work.” I guess I forgot, until I started wondering why the gauge wasn’t working that is. So today, I finally added that ground wire.
I also cleaned up the wiring with some plastic split loom. It looks much better than it did before.
Yesterday, it was about 80 degrees. Today, I don’t think it ever reached 40. (Crazy Texas weather in the winter) I had 4 layers on, and I still couldn’t keep warm!
I think I’ve got everything complete on this project now, except the tank and tank level gauge. I’m going to look for places to buy fiberglass fabric and resin now.
