I like paint with a little patina. Looks nice if the car is well taken care of! Don’t worry getting it repainted. Waste of money and unless you shell out loads of cash for a proper job, the little...

Ok, new relay didn’t work at all. Just caused the climate control buttons to behave differently, so safe to say this Bosch relay is not compatible with my car.

Is there any relay or...

Hvac blower motor relay

My blower motor stopped working on low speed about two years ago, and I’ve had to use it on high whenever I want heat or A/C... loud and unnecessary in most situations.

Sometimes I would lose the...

Well, check the fuel system as Beast mentioned. Use a 46mm socket and take out the fuel sender to get a view of the inside of the tank. If you see any corrosion, pull the tank and clean it out and...

That’s quite a list, and I would put all major repairs on hold until you determine how bad the rust really is. Get underneath it, tear up the carpets, look everywhere. Might not be worth putting...

Minor nitpick.. I think that accumulator bracket should be tightened over the “skinny” bit. Looks like it could shimmy off with vibration, just looks spooky to me!

Also, maybe the 450 is...

Idle “hiccup”

Can’t think of a better way to describe it, but when the car is idling at a stop, for a split second the revs will drop very slightly, and the rear end of the car will jump up just a hair. Very...

Normal distributor position?

Wondering if this is a “normal” position for the distributor. It’s as far as it will turn clockwise, which is fully retarded, as far as I know (that never sounds right!)

It runs and idles great in...

Aftermarket steering couplers?

Like the absolute masochist I am, I’m going to follow up the single row chain replacement with the other dreaded (or so I’ve read) repair: steering coupler.

Can’t justify the $200 for OEM, but...

Can someone tell me if this is normal? When I turn the engine over by hand, the length of chain that runs between the top side of the two cams and through the guide wheel gets slack, then when I give...
