I have the Classic Update Kit (510372) for my 66 Impala. I a long way from finishing my complete kit but I have installed the Dash Kit, Instrument Kit, and Engine kit. I don't have the front cap on so I do not have the front light harness or the rear body harness installed yet. So for that reason I don't have all of the fuses in, just what powers the engine up. I want to run my motor every now and then. It starts, runs, and stops just fine, but I don't have power to the electric choke wire or the temp sender (could be other stuff too).

I don't think it's a grounding issue, but just in case, I'm using the negative post on the battery for a ground and still not getting 12 vdc.

What fuse powers the choke and temp sender?

Or is it something else?

Put the gauge fuse in.

Thanks Donny, that was it.

Was there supposed to be a wiring diagram in my 510372 kit?

Is there a list that tells me what circuit each fuse powers up?

Yes, that one does have a schematic in it. What are you wanting to know? The main 510372 instruction set has a general schematic.

I guess what I'm looking for is either of these:

A list of what every fuse powers up.

OR

A list with the power source for anything that may be missing it's voltage.

This is a perfect example. I'm looking for the power source for the electric choke. Try as I could I could not find anything that led me to the "GAUGE" fuse. (but I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed). I saw wires that led to terminals on the fuse block. But I did not see any connections from the terminals to a particular fuse, and very little on the electric choke.

I know once you get everything installed and if you need to find missing voltage, just look for a blown fuse. I'm years away from getting everything installed.

A simple list of what every fuse powers up would do it. Then I would not have to ask you my lame questions.

I really appreciate your help on this board Donny. I read every one of your responses, even if if doesn't pertain to any situation I'm in.

Eric
