Re: brake lights are on when car is off

AFAIK, if that switch loosens up the lights won't turn on, so the odds are it is jamming or failing internally. I think I'd just replace it to make sure. 28? years on a "floor" switch must just be enough. Shouldn't be expensive. funny you say that red i was thinking the same thing lol i d...

Re: brake lights are on when car is off

There is a little rubber grommet on the pedal that meets with the switch, if that grommet is missing your lights will stay on all the time. Maybe yours fell off or something? http://i854.photobucket.com/albums/ab106/smokescreen91/mqgg6QfwJ4rfbphpFm9rung_zps02f6a364.jpg hmm got a bigger picture? i c...

Re: brake lights are on when car is off

check the switch at the pedal. Unplug it and see if the brake lights turn off. might just be some dirt in the switch or the wires could be shorting. I did just that and made sure the button that meets the pedal wasn't stuck, they turn off now so that's good im glad it's nothing else i'll keep an ey...

Re: Tapping into 4AGE block for water feed/return

It would be nicer to pickup coolant from the block rather then stuff already heated up in the head. true but would it really matter that much? some ppl get away without running coolant and have no issues it would be convenient from the back of the block so you wouldn't have to run lines from the in...

Re: Tapping into 4AGE block for water feed/return

The water lines are primarily to prevent long term coking of the oil and this is the worst on shut downs. If you are religious about letting the car cool down before turning it off you will have less to worry about. If you don't mid risking blocking off the oil passages in your turbo some day go fo...

Re: Tapping into 4AGE block for water feed/return

If you use the iacv/throttle body lines make sure hard lines aren't gummed up (common problem). I'd do what the guy above said and use the old heater feed/return points for the turbo. I'd personally go with a turbo that's oil cooled only for simplicity, but that's a subjective thing. It's probably ...

Re: Tapping into 4AGE block for water feed/return

I teed into my heater lines. Since you aren't running a heater why not just devote that whole circuit? If I was in your place I'd probably weld or braze AN fittings where the heater hoses connected. that could happen, the heater lines run to the back of the block correct? I never had heater so I re...

Re: AE86 exhaust underaxle or overaxle

Biggest problem with most under axle cbe setups...the axle housing will rest on the exhaust when you jack the car up and let the rear suspension droop. If you're careless and don't unhook the cbe in this case bad things can happen. I've seen an ae86 with a tear in the floor where the exhaust hanger...

Will the different gauge be more accurate with the OEM sensor? Maybe, maybe not, might be completely off as there's more then a few resistance ranges for sensors. Bottom pic? That's not a temp gauge sensor on the bottom hose, the inlet. well the reading on the gauge cluster doesn't read accurate at...
