Don't know about the 86, but in 84 it just controlled the carb. and dist. I removed both the PCM and it's associated wiring.

What about the fan and the Gauges? I only have put about 1,000 Miles on teh car in teh last ten years, I'll manage with the gas. I'll pull the bulb.

Can I remove the sensors from the thermostat housing?
What are they for?
Does one control the Temp gauge? if so which one?
can I put it someone else?
I want to put a nicer one on there.
