    With the one going to pcm just allows pcm to control the alt . Not sure what alt you are using but on the 3800 alt the one runs to pcm the one from pcm to be, if you do not want pcm controlling alt cut out , you just run the wire from alt to b3.
    I believe you have a cs130 alt. 4 pin plug should be marked PLFS. "L" wire goes to B3 at c500. "S" is voltage sense needs to go to a 12v ignition source.. 3rd wire if at pin F is field wire. Should not need any other than the other 2 wires previously mentioned

    Hey page 105... Again, taking way too long to finish this project....

    Thanks for the clarification jbrown. I appreciate the pin out letters as that helps confirm or adjust my assumptions.

    Cheers

    Had a bit of time to start cleaning up the engine bay in prep for putting the drive line in and checking wiring locations and setup. I have been cleaning up the metal in the engine bay and noticed that there were a few holes in the bottom corners of the trunk. Looks like the trunk was bashed up a bit and pushed back together and seam sealed. So out came the welder and tried to weld up the seam again but the metal is too thin to get a good bead. Had to cut out the passenger side lower trunk wall and make a piece to replace that area. Have it made and initial first test but I don't like the fit so taking it out and doing some more touch ups to get a better fit before i weld it all back in lace. Been using a mig to tack things ion place but with the clearance, I may need to switch over to my TIG to get into the area near that back of the wall cutout.

    Got a little bit exciting when I realized the trunk carpet had fallen down to that side and started on fire.... Had some quick hand slapping of flames with the welding glove on and had to open the garage door to get rid of the smoke.... I then fixed it correctly as I should have to begin with and pulled the liner right out and right out of the way.... Can't fix stupid folks. Next time you think: "I will just pull it out of the way".... don't.... Actually get it right out of the way... Good thing I was replacing the liner anyway.

    You tend to move pretty quickly when you realize stuff is on fire. No other damage though so no long term problem. Cleaning up some of the clearance cuts for the engine as well so will be adding some new metal in to make it a bit cleaner and finish off the harsh cuts I dis to get the driveline in to begin with. has to look pretty as well as run well....

    All for now.

    Wow, good to hear that nothing major was damaged, Don....I'm thinking you should name your car Sarah Connor because when it comes to hunting down and eliminating potential problems; past, present, or future with your car - you are the Terminator....Keep up the extraordinary work and best regards with getting 'er done....Cheers!

    WOW! Glad there was no major damage....maybe it was just letting go of the last remnants of having been a Fiero?

    Also glad you are able to free up enough time to be back on it, and thank you for also taking the time to update this thread.

    Still out here in LA LA land waiting to see this beauty finally hit the pavement, but NOT before YOU decide it's ready!

    Hope you and yours have a grand, happy, SAFE Christmas and the New Year is the best yet....for all of us! (Hey....I can still dream....can't I?)

    Stay on it Don.....you da man!

    A bit more of work done over Xmas. Made a new engine bay wall piece to remove some minor rust where the battery was and close everything off for a 4" intake tube from the side scoops. Still need to get the driver's side done.

    Also replaced left side of trunk bottom as the metal was pretty beat up and very thin.

    A couple pics of the trunk and passenger side wall.

    Happy New Year everyone
    Don

    Did a bit more work over the last couple nights. Had some fun getting into some metal fab. NO WHERE near the talent of Joel and others that are creating masterpieces. Used a lot of their info and pictures to help me though.

    I wanted to flll in a hack job on the driver's side that the builder cut out with a straight saw. The area is in behind the air box and charcoal canister but in this build it was butchered to make room for the fuel hose coming down from the sail panel.

    I wanted a cleaner look to the engine bay even though the space would be mostly hidden.

    Took some 3" solid round stock I had and clamped into the vise and used a rubber hammer to shape the curve to match up with the fender well curve. Then I started getting into the shrinking and stretching to make the additional curves and bumps that the original GM press did so many years ago.

    Ended up with a passable fill piece that will be mostly hidden and cut in two holes to let the fuel hose and vent through and it doesn't look like someone went at it with a sazwall any more....

    Cheers

    Shows the finished product. Couldn't easily get up close to the frame rail to clean up the welding but being mostly covered, I wasn't as worried. It is solid which is the important part.


    The yellow lines more or less show the fill piece I made and fit into the messed up hole.

    Always great to see an update on your build Don.

    Patch looks stellar!

    Mostly hidden or not...YOU'LL know it was done and done right!

    Keep up the great work.....(and the updates.... ).

    Updates

    Got the fuel tank back in and sitting where it is supposed to. Waiting for some new fuel hose with 90* bends in it before securing in a final time. Also finished the fuel lines rerouting to driver's side. Just need to confirm the final bend for the flexible fuel lines to the engine now that the driveline is in place.

    Also put the driveline back in to get an idea of final fitting, plumbing and electrical paths etc. Pretty tight in there with the DOHC. Will have to take the driveline out one more time after everything is routed and confirmed so I can paint the engine bay and apply the LizardSkin ceramic heat shield. Getting closer all the time to firing this baby up if all goes well.

    Cheers

    I think I am going to build a dust extraction system as well for the sand baster. Last few parts I did ended up covering me with sand dust being forced out of the viewing lid edges. Watched a few youtube DIY vids on the weekend and I like a few examples so will make a call tonight and start putting it together. I have a pile of parts to blast and it just isn't working the way I have it now. I also need to change up the blasting cabinet as the sand container under the rack isn't at enough of an angle to keep the sand coming out so need to make more extreme angles in the container to keep the sand filling the suction tube. Always something.....
