Yep, brain fart. Info valid, engine management reference wrong!

I'm not convinced that the (puny) Eaton was the cause of your engine meltdown. I think it probably was on the cusp of failure and it just happened after you became the caretaker. I should think that putting in a new lump along with a 4.2 ECU from a Loob and the old SC system will button up your bonnet.

I finally decided my priority was detonation. I can't hear it, so I ordered two Knocklites - one for each cylinder bank.
Theoretically, they will alert me way before it becomes a serious issue. On top of that I ordered two AEM wideband AFR sensors - again, one for each side.
Anyone know a gauge panel that mounts to the A pillar on a RRC so I can find a home for all this stuff?
On the 1,200 mile trip back to Oregon I'll get to test the thinking.
BTW, it was advice from this Forum under this post that led me in this direction. You also got me excited about the sc again and helped me to understand them?
Thanks very much.

Clark
