It seems to be all the time, not just in cold weather. There is the smell too. It's not so much a gas smell as it is a strong exhaust smell and possibly unburnt gas??

I used the sand paper on the prongs that are on the plugs that go into the back of each guage not on the circuit board itself.

All stock and unmolested. I'll probably up my tires to 30/9.50/15 and wouldn't mind a 2 inch lift but I always like seeing a clean older vehicle as original as possible.

Okay, I will check the trans mount bolts and change my trans fluid to 10/30 motor oil this weekend.
How do you check for worn or broken motor mounts?

It's funny but the noise I mentioned when pulling it back into reverse sort of sounds like it could be binding the shift boot. I'll remove it to see how it shifts without it. Can't hurt to try that.
