    LOL... I don't know much about the DOHC engines, so I can't help you out there, but having three connectors and only two ports usually signifies a problem! Sounds like you're on the right track...

    Consumer Opinion About Mad Mechanics

    The number of posts on Mad Mechanics by scammers, snake oil peddlers, and phishing bots is starting to outnumber the posts about cars. How long before an administrator here starts managing the site?

    The two Amida switch panels are sold, but he might still have the raw fiberglass console and a replica five speed shift gate. I think he wanted CDN$200 for the leftover pieces, plus shipping.
