Engine & Transmission > five speed one piece drifeshaft????? (14 replies - 9322 views)

Call it 90-95% certain.  My car has a 4-speed, and where 5-speeds are concerned, all I've seen is photos and line drawings.  However, it's good engineering practice ...   07-28-2006 08:00 pm

Engine & Transmission > five speed one piece drifeshaft????? (14 replies - 9322 views)

Was waiting for someone to comment who's actually done this themself, but I guess they're all busy elsewhere.  As I understand things, most aftermarket one-piece driveshafts for ...   07-28-2006 06:52 pm

Ignition > Starter Motor Problem (3 replies - 6107 views)

If the starter motor itself quits rotating, rather than rotating but no longer turning the engine, then the problem might be a worn-out or oil-soaked contact brush.  Replacement ...   07-25-2006 09:47 pm

Brakes > Brake light on after hose replacement (22 replies - 30212 views)

Ignition > Ignition (5 replies - 6605 views)

Carburetors > Carburation (6 replies - 8487 views)

IMHO the most likely possibilities are: Fuel pressure at carburetors is too high (normal is 2.5 psi, upper limit is 3.0 psi, IIRC). Incorrect reassembly of the ...   06-26-2006 02:53 am
