right cylinder head is that passenger or driver side right side faceing away from front or right side looking at front of car beneath 6 and 8 plug are those front two or rear two what side?
sounds like i ran across the right person for advise thankyou i will check it out and catch up with you down the road for sure.
hey to broke ,following the line from the fan why is there a connection to ac are you sure the only activation for fan is sensor at 6 and 8 plug?
hey to broke to retire yea the previous arkansas hill billy owner of the car was not so bright, no oxygen sensor, and i got to compare the wireing harness to another 82 for the electric fan, looks like for what ever reason he completed the circut for the fan with the hot wire on the ac compressor so the fan would turn on as soon as the ignition is turned on, what an idiot, so i had replaced the sensor with a sensor switch from mid america now to undo the electric tape to see what all was cut and restore to original oh boy never buy on line unless you get to sleep with it first in person hard lesson learned!
Could that cause it to shut down when engine gets warmd up if not plugged inFront Or Rear and Left Or Right?
The right cylinder head is on the passenger side. All references to which side of a car is made from your sitting in the driver's seat and looking foreword. The switch that turns the fan on is located about 3" above the #6 and #8 spark plugs and is hidden by the heat shield that covers those two plugs. Many years ago I screwed a short 3/8" pipe nipple and coupling into my right-side head to extend the switch out beyond the heat shield so I could get to the wires easily without having to remove that shield.
The wires are joined together by a plastic coupling but my coupling broke (from heat) a long time ago. So I had to remove the broken coupling and crimp two 1/4" female spade terminals on my wires. As the switch is simply an ON/OFF switch it doesn't matter which terminals the wires go to.
Just my 2 cents worth, thak seems to be likely. I had mine (82 Pace Car) doing pretty well, but after I rebuilt the dist. The timing was off a tad. Unfortunately, the marks might as well be on Pluto. Been sneaking it in and am darn close. Starting better but wants to run rich for a minute. Replacing the thermostat now, as someone put a 180 in it instead of the recommended 195.I have 82 also having cold hard starts, I was told by mechanic that the timing was off, can timing cause this?
