I am so sorry to have not responded! I actually had sat down and written a long winded reply but apparently managed to drop it imto a black hole ( more likely got interrupted and never actually posted it!
As for the speed sensor, that is one I havent had to locate yet though I would expect it is probably hanging out on the transaxle somewhere and probably in a spot that required dislocating your elbow and writs to reach it ;-)!
I sure wish you were closer to Alabama! You know you need a fourth Millie! It is certainly an obsession that frequently makes you question your own sanity ;-), but aside from not being super quiet in the cab, they are guite a nice highway car. Not long after I had brought her back from becoming yard art, I was making a run down I65 and was already a bit late. She was just purring so nicely that I thought I would see whether she would get close to the reported top end when new. I was cruising at about 80 and just punched it to the floor. In what felt lile seconds I looked down to see she was at 135 and still pulling. Though the ride felt good, hugging the road not even a hint of getting loose etc., I held up at 135 for about 15-20 minutes before regaining some bit of sanity and dropping back to 75-80. I had forgotten just how quickly people move over when they see a bullet approaching . She is still running just as well and if it werent for the stinking manifold gasket, I would likely have kept driving the car! It is killing me to just throw her out. With everything I did recently, the dealer installed replacement blower only about 20k back and only 90k miles, there is a lot of meat still on the bone!
Driver's Way offered me a whopping $900 for the car, but you know they would probably scrapped her. It's not the money, heck I will accept any reasonable offer (read that as not much) just to know that someone is going to keep her running or even use her as the donor for a heart transplant. I could honestly make more if I made the effort and took the time to part her out, but like I said, I am old and tired and have already bought a nice 4Runner that I can get in and out of so much more easily
If you feel like making a road trip, come on. I'll buy you a beer and hand you some keys!
Thanks for looking! Not sure how much longer I will keep her in the driveway but she's still hanging around for now.
