Re: WTB: everything interior

hey, I have a coupe. I would def shell out the money if I can find a black dash uncracked. Thanks, this might sound stupid but how do i clean the wiper, with what kinda fluids or tools?

Re: Tips on Oil Restrictors

Actually, the 4age crankcase is vented, something I learned recently, there is no PVC it's just vented outside of the manifold. Run some wire through the 'PVC' port and you'll find it just ports the crankcase to a spot just ahead of the throttle body. So manifold pressure won't have an affect on ca...

factory oil pump & 8000rpm redline can't be compared to an elaborate dry sump & 9500+? rpm Totally different operating parameters. Wouldn't be surprised if the restrictor was 'overwelmed' in the latter Apples and oranges really. For a factory oil pump, high RPM is probably the worst case sc...

Re: Tips on Oil Restrictors

Not really the case here. the late 4AGE, small port head, has a secondary oil return to make up for the inadequate oil return of the earlier models. It is a good size return, 5/8" I.D. planted in the head where OST had shown the AN fitting. The block has a tube pressed into the side and they a...

Re: Tips on Oil Restrictors

In my opinion... the oil pressure up kit is a bandaid fix and could possibly contribute to the problem... If excess oil is being supplied to the head to the point it begins to pool, resizing the orifice to limit that flow is the ideal fix. You will still have adequate oil supply and reduce the volum...

Re: Dancing headlight issue

Try cleaning the connection to the retract relay (by the battery). Make sure the pins/plugs aren't corroded or caked with crap, and the wires arent broke.

The grease that was used in this connector is old and gotten pasty over the years. Not to mention it likey has collected lots of crap too.

Your 3rd brakelight is hooked up to the running lights, but needs to be connected to the switch.

I didn't have to rewire mine- i just let the extra sockets dangle without bulbs.

Hopefully you have a multimeter.

Set it to check for continuity and test between the "black" wire you think is for the Tach, and the black wire going to the igniter.

California tries to but they do it differently.

In CA your headlight must be XX inches from ground level. I think that number is 21 inches but dont quote me on it.

Do you have fuel pressure? Is the fuel pump still controlled by the COR? You should be able to hear the fuel pump turn on but it's better to verify this with rail pressure (pump could be running but not producing adequate pressure to get fuel atomization). When the AFM detects intake flow, it provid...

I highly doubt California will ever change the exempt status to include anything post-1975 and here's why: In 1984, the Smog Check program began in California. Cars made in 1966 and later had to pass the idle test and visual inspection every 2 years. Then, in 1998, the laws were changed, which grant...
