So I haven't drove the Caddy in about 2 weeks, and decided to take it to the movies tonight... then look for a place to eat afterword(failed....Georgia closes at midnight)
Anyway, I really missed driving the car.... kinda makes me want to drive it to FL....
I dunno if I did decide to drive it to FL I need to do 3 things:
1) fix AC.... first put all the new components in, then get it charged up
2) basic tune up with spark plugs, wires, cap & rotor, fuel filter maybe (I remember then being a pain on the Q-jet)
3) if I can't get the speedo fixed by then, then atleast wire the speed sensor to a switch so I can make the torque converter lock up. Still tho, I want the speedo to work cause then cruise control will work.
Still, I dunno... *IF* I did make it, the car woudln't be pretty as I haven't done anything to fix it up in a while, still missig the rear trim stuff (can't get it to stay on with the clips) it is still loud.... but it would be fun to drive.
I will definitely be there. BTW, does anybody around here have a contact at a dealership (or have access to a Tech 2) who could do a crank variance learn for me (for a few $)? With some luck, I'll be getting a reprogrammed PCM from AJxtcman (see the Northstar Tuning thread), and I'll need to have that done in order to use it.

Thats the first time I ever heard you refer to your car as "the Caddy" and not Gladys..... sheesh man, what is happening to ya?!?
Too bad tho, I was hoping to see her there!
Well, its 2:30AM, I got off work 3 hours ago, time to go work on the Caddy, still not sure if I am gonna take it or not, gotta put the new A/C stuff in, then get it recharged sometime tomorrow, maybe ni FL, I dunno.... got cap, rotor, plugs and wires to throw on and I really want to wire up the torque converter switch to be operated by a button.
Well, looks like I may well be taking the Fleetwood Brougham....
its 7AM, I spent the last 5 hours working on it, got the new A/C compressor, accumulator and orifice tube up, then changed the cap, rotor, plugs and wires. She runs good..... still not pretty, still loud (not in a good way) and still broken.
I am gonna see what I can do to wire the speed sensor up to a switch so the torque converter will lock up... looks like I still don't have a speedo, and I need to get the A/C system evacuated and recharged, either here or in FL..... then load up my CD's, got an MP3 CD player again.... and hit the road
