    High mounted brake light

    I wish to share a puzzler with everyone. These 30 year old cars find new ways to challenge me every month. The high mounted brake light on my '87 Turbo Regal has just started to remain on when the brakes are not engaged. The other brake lights continue to function normally. Can anyone...

    Front and rear gray seats

    From a 57,xxx mile Turbo Regal. Nonsmoker car therefore no smells nor cigarette burns. Only wear marks are on the outer front edge of the front seats where the fabric would rub on the carpet. My guess is at some point the car was driven by a pretty big boy! Seats come with the usual hardware...

    Engine stand

    Yes, this has been asked and answered many times before and I did a search but could not find the answer to my specific question. Does any one make an engine stand that is "custom" to the 109 block that allows use of the motor mount bolt holes? As always, thanks for any help. Dean

    Hoping someone who has been here before can share how they solved this problem. Trying to remove the stock metal thermostat housing from the intake. This is a real pisser as any engineer knows dissimilar metals will eventually chemically "weld" together in time and here I am trying to remove...

    Painted alternator

    This question is not just specific to our turbo cars but would apply to any I would think. My situation is low voltage output at about 12.2 max right out of the alternator which was painted by previous owner (no, really!). The whole alternator looks like it was painted without disassembly...
