    The copper wires.

    Do yourself a favour, learn to use punctuation, then get a haynes or a factory service manual for the chassis, and one for the engine. I'm sure you can probably find the information on this board somewhere.

    The only thing you should have done to convert to OBD1 is swap the OBD1 distributor on the engine with your b-series OBD2 distributor, and use an ECU conversion harness.

    Are you absolutely sure all the wiring is intact? Sounds like a ground to me.

    Sounds like a ground to me too. Check the ground on the thermostat housing. If that comes loose then your gauges will wig out
