    I'd use anti-seize. (Loctite might cause the time-sert to come out later...)

    Don't put anything on exhaust gaskets. (Way too hot for any RTV.)

    I haven't done it to a D, but would suggest that 36 grit is too coarse. You only need to clean/scuff it enough for the spray to bond. Also, use a type that resists heat and claims to be flexible or...

    Treat it like a No Start problem and narrow it down to fuel or ignition first -- Put a phillips screwdriver in one of the easy plug wires and see if it jumps spark to ground (e.g block) when someone...

    You got it right.

    Just in case, usually you can't use a LED for the battery light. Just use a new OEM style one of the same rate since you are in there...

    +1

    Barring major leaks, if the light and gauge show no oil pressure while it is running now, I'd guess you've lost a pump/chain since the two operate independently.

    Actually, split lock washers don't act like flat washers. Flat washers are used to evenly distribute the tightening force (usually over an area greater than the nut or bolt...

    The condenser's input temps can get near 200F. And it will radiate heat to the already "hot" radiator, since they are almost touching, making them both need the fans. Not to mention the hot air (from...

    I'd say the alternator is OK (and the light doesn't come on when the gauge is low because you haven't waited long enough for the actual voltage to get low enough). And since nothing says you are...

    Those reading would indicate that the fans were drawing too much current if these regulators simply turned the alternators on an off like some of the older systems. But internal regulators increase...

    Aux cooling fan or AC fan, switch?

    When the clutch cycles off, the Otterstat will keep the cooling fans on if the engine temp is above normal temp anyway. So I don't understand what you are after...

    Just for kicks, measure your (D)rive and (A)lternator pulleys.
    Your AlternatorRPM = D/A x EngineRPM, which should be 1800-2000 at idle for proper output.

    FWIW, the Brown/Yellow wire also feeds...

    All 12V cars should keep the voltage at 12+ during idle (~13.5+ is normal). That's with stock accessories on. Ds are known to fall short with the stock alternators/age/etc., but one with an...

    One way to look at it is, while EFI gives you a new reliable fuel delivery system, Stage II gives you a fresh engine with a little more performance.

    If it turns over at a normal speed, you should first see if it is ignition (spark) or fuel keeping it from starting/cranking up.
