Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Nah, mine was more grinding, evident of binding just from feel and type of sound (isn't it fun to describe sounds on the internet). A little update. She runs and drives but runs pretty rough. The coilovers are not height matched on the front since I get tire rub with my messed up fender. I probably ...

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

I pulled the hose after the check valve (going to the booster) off, after running the car for a bit and turning off.. and a good amount of pressure released from the hose, hissing and what not. Wouldn't that mean normal operation?

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

Thanks Dave, I actually found out that the check valve between the hoses was flipped the opposite way. I flipped it back, and now the power brake system seems to be working. However, when I step on the brake @ idle (haven't driven), the pedal will go down, but become "sticky" when it hits ...

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

So I went for a drive after bleeding all the brakes from furthest to closest, and made sure there were no bubbles. No leaks visible on any fitting, and all fittings nice and tight. I bedded in the brakes, but it still feels like the pedal is too hard. if I apply good leg force, she stops good, prett...

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Looks good dude, you're almost there :).

Just to let you know, it's been proven that silicone hoses seep coolant through small pores over time, so you'll want to keep an eye on the level more frequent than rubber hoses.

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

Ok, I guess I gave the shop too much credit when they did the brake bleed. Seems that nut was loose.

I'm gonna re-bleed and see how she goes, but pedal pumping doesn't seem to produce any kind of pooling so looks good!

Re: Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

I could see that. I'm a little weary of over-tightening hard-line nuts. But if it's anything else it'll more than likely be replaced I guess. When I installed the prop valve and new MC, almost all the lines were not kinked properly. I had references of factory routing and kinks so I know they were r...

Brake line leak on hardline @ prop valve

Hey guys, I'm not good with hydraulic lines but I have a weird leak symptom. It seems as though there is a very small but consistent leak on the upper connection for the hardline which goes into the (top of the) prop valve. It's odd though, that it's leaking (gradually pooling) where the nut and the...

Re: Ignition timing problem

Shop found that the fuel pipe that delivers to the fuel filter was bent.

Also that the fuel was old and brown and nasty.

I forgot it was over a year old lol. But they set the timing again. Seems like it's running alright now.

Re: Kitsunami's 86 SR5 to GTS swap

Just keep an eye on it..

For the rust proofing, I always use POR-15. No priming or sanding needed, and when it dries it's like steel! Just make sure you wear protection for skin and inhalation.

Re: My differential exploded...

Why did your diff break like that in the first place? This is not a common occurrence..

They still sell third members, a new one just sold on Egay about 1 or 2 weeks ago. I think someone is still making them or they are NOS. I've seen them pop up every once in awhile.
