Welcome.

Sometimes it's kind of slow here because a lot of current activity happens on Facebook but there is a wealth of knowledge available.

Right now I have no power to the distributor  and came figure out why and the digi cluster only partially works in thinking it's a fusable link and I would post pictures but  I don't know how xD

Yeah social media really killed a lot of car forum traffic unfortunately. Makes you appreciate the old days when forums were often busy with activity.

As for your issues I can't say why your distributor isn't getting power but the digi clusters most of the time don't seem to work 100% right even if everything else going to them checks out ok. The analog gauges by comparison seemed to hold up much better over time. I've had at least 2 or 3 different digi clusters in mine and in all of them some gauges worked, some didn't. Even if they did work it was hard to trust the accuracy which is why I just ended up installing separate volt and temp gauges under the radio where the equalizer used to be. The only thing that works accurately on my digi cluster is my speedometer and the tripometer which doubles as my gas gauge since that isn't accurate at all either haha. And on a side note, ditching the ca18et always gets my vote. I ditched mine for the ka24de a few years ago and couldn't be happier. All my ca18et ever did for me was repeatedly break down and nickle and dime me to death.
