I just wanted to say thanks for the help with the wiring on my coupe
conversion project. After sitting for over 6 years, the 3B fired right up
and will now run on its own. I have not even connected the mass airflow
sensor and intake plumbing, but it apparently has some default values that
allow it to run. I have lots left to connect to see if everything else
works, but I am happy to have reached a milestone.

I studied the excel spreadsheets and used them as a starting point, but
ended up making a wiring diagram that I could more easily understand. When
everything is proven to be working (or at least fixable), I will be glad to
share what I have. I had a little trouble interpreting the spreadsheets, and
my brain understands wiring better than a list of things that should somehow
be connected.

I will also be glad to share a couple of the basic decisions that had to be
made before connecting wires (like where to make the connections, how to
route the wires, etc).

Again, I will have many more questions about how others have solved
plumbing, wiring, and exhaust issues, but a big thanks to those who laid the
groundwork and shared their knowledge.
