Re: Turning Ignition has no Response

You need to jumper the two red/blue wires coming out of the firewall grommet in the 4 pin plug: male to female. This simulates the neutral safety switch being in park or neutral, which jumpers those two wires. Without that jumper, you will not get any voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid.

Re: For sale vehicles......One of my biggest pet peeves......

What bugs me the most is "xxx original miles". Can someone explain to me what non-original miles might be to differentiate between the two?

Re: AFHQT......

All right...you got my curiosity meter pegged. I googled "AFHQT" and came up empty. What does it mean?

Re: Dash indicator lights not working

Prove out circuit doesn't get power from the S terminal but from the CRANK signal at the ignition switch. The low fuel lamp does get its power from the starter motor terminal at the starter solenoid.

You moved the prove out lead from the starter side of the solenoid to the battery side.

Re: Horns

I've found that the female spade connectors on many horn plugs are corroded. Slide a thin screwdriver to unlock the locking tab to remove the black cover and clean those clips as best as you can. No guarantee that this will work, but is quick, easy, and cheap!

Re: Chrome...

I found that #0000 steel wool, followed by a chrome cleaner (never-dull) and using a cloth diaper (yes, a diaper) for cleaning to that deep chrome shine without the haze left over.

Re: Weird instrument readings???and

Probably a bad voltage regulator; the fuel gauge should not move up with increasing RPMs (I can see it going down over time, of course!). The fact that adding more gas didn't cause the fuel needle to move is puzzling, though.
