    You don't need a big 12 gauge wire to carry the current. You need the 12 gauge wire to reduce voltage drop at higher currents. Remember as Rick said above, wire resistance is ohms per foot. The...

    If the inner fenders were black, I'd say black would be fine. However, since the firewall, inner fenders, and everything else are red, I think black would look odd. I'd paint the support red and...

    I just looked at a spec sheet for Littelfuse ATO/ATC fuses. For a 10A ATO fuse the typical resistance is 7.7 mOhm. That's under 8 THOUSANDTHS of an OHM. Also, as the fuse current rating rises,...

    Part of the reason you use a wire larger than you need is to reduce voltage drop. The 12 gauge wire is overkill for 25A but GM used 12 GA for HEI, and I read that AAW uses 10 gauge for the coil...

    Yes, the 50A relays I'm using draw about 140mA coil current each. The ignition switch only triggers 2 of them when starting (solenoid, IGN) and only two when running (IGN, ACC) for a total of 280mA...

    My research shows that the coil can draw upwards of 20-25 amps. I'm actually using a MSD Blaster coil (no ignition box) with a GM computer-controlled distributor and I'm feeding it from a 25A fuse...

    The real problem is that pointer sticks way too far out to be of any use. It should have been attached all the way back closer to the the cover instead of having the big gap between it and the cover.
