  1. Yeah, I'm not sure about the smoke, which worries me still. I couldn't find anything that looked melted or burned at all. For the cleaning, I used a wire brush to get off the corrosion, and I used this stuff: https://www.autozone.com/greases-and-gear-oil/lubricant-grease/ags-battery-install-kit-with-grease-and-washers/554868_0_0 Also, the ammeter is reading at neutral again, like it used to. Since so much of my system is inactive, I really don't know what could have been smoking. I don't have a heater, no A/C for that year, I have a hole where the radio went, the lights
  2. Ok, thank you all so much for your time and ideas. It turns out that I'm just a big idiot. I couldn't find whatever was smoking, almost took the dash off in my search. It took me a long time to even get to this point because I've been busy with school and work and the daylight just isn't what it is during the summer months (yet). ANYWAY. I get out the multimeter and do some more tests. I figure I'll try to make it smoke some more with the middle panel and vent panels out so I can see where it's coming from. This means I have to jump start it again, but I wanted to see how the voltage was
  3. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I noticed the little amp meter was reading a little to the (+) side. I don't know what that means
  4. Hello all, long time, no see. Which is good since I typically only come here when something is bad... anyway I've got this problem, see? Started a bit ago, a little trouble getting the car to start. Classic *click* when I'd turn the key. Checked wiring on my starter, since one has come off in the past leading to this problem... not this time. I rock the car a little in desperation (I'm on a dirt road, quite far from civilization at this point) and somehow it starts up. Whew, I think. I get home. Try turning it on again? Click. all wires connected. OK, must be the batter
  5. That sounds like a good idea too. Man, now I really want one, haha
  6. Well it's basically a rudimentary cruise control right? I mean obviously there's no feedback, but if you were say driving at a constant speed on a relatively flat road, that's when it would be useful, no?
  7. Yeah, I've looked all over the place and CAN NOT find one. I see choke cables all over the place, but I don't even need a manual choke, my carb is electrically choked.
  8. I am too, 1973 if anyone happens to have 2
