    Seville Rear Discs

    Thanks for the tips, found the info here: http://www.montecarloss.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=18;t=001019 Not sure what I'll do. I can score the calipers and brackets for around $30, but if they aren't that much better than drums.... However, 4th-gen F-body stuff is hard...

    Seville Rear Discs

    I've done a search on this and can't find much, but I could swear that I read several years ago about 79 Seville Rear Discs working for our cars. Am I just dreaming this? :confused: I found one in the yard in remarkably good shape...

    Smoking At Idle

    I'll go with oil seals too. Had the EXACT same problem with my Syclone. Truck would smoke only at idle while sitting still, nothing visible while driving. I narrowed my problem down to the turbo by disconnecting the intercooler piping from the turbo. Smoke out the tailpipe went away. Hooked the...

    Shipping TR drivetrain, how much does it weigh?

    I had no intentions to bring any names out into this, but since mr. gn man stepped up.... In my original auction, I specifically posted "LOCAL PICKUP ONLY" as I did not know how much it would cost to ship or even how I would do it since I had never shipped something of this size before. He...

    Shipping TR drivetrain, how much does it weigh?

    Thanks for the responses, guys. I sold this on ebay, and now the winning bidder has decided that he "no longer wants to purchase the item". :mad: :mad: Maybe the second chance bidder will want to buy it. I had a bad feeling about the whole deal when I saw that the buyer's last two...

    Shipping TR drivetrain, how much does it weigh?

    I sold my extra 86-87 drivetrain, and now I need to ship it out. I have no idea how much this thing weighs though, so I can't get a shipping estimate. Does anyone know the approximate weight of a complete drivetrain? I've got it all crated up- complete engine, trans, TC, harness, all engine...

    Heater Box Question for Hot Air Conversion

    Guys, Got a couple questions regarding heater box compatibility between the hot air and intercooled set-ups. I'm swapping an 87 engine into my 85 and was wondering: 1. Will the 85 style heater box physically clear an 87 3" DP? 2. Will the 85 style heater box/evap cannister connect to the...

    Wiring harness removal

    Hate to ask this, but how do you access all the bolts holding the fender well in place? Looks like there are a couple out of reach below the heater core. Or am I missing something? Thanks for the help guys.

    Wiring harness removal

    Does anybody know how to remove the engine wiring harness from the car? I'm having some major difficulty gaining access to the pass side firewall area where the harness passes through. What do I have to remove to get to this thing? I thought maybe I could just slide the plastic wheel well down...

    GN Engine Swap into 86 S-10?

    Guys, Has anyone ever heard of swapping a GN motor into an S-10 truck? I've got an 85 hot air motor that a buddy is wanting to install. Anybody know if the motor bolts in easily or at all? Or where we could get custom motor mounts fabricated? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Corbin
