If you were a real friend you would have told me to buy a nice, running, turbo wagon for cheap. Oh wait. You did.

Found a sweet speaker wire connector kit at Best Buy today. Gold plated because, well, I donít know. But it has that tiny female flat connector for the negative (or is it positive?) speaker connector. At $22.39 it was a bargain.

Think Iíll put the new amp under the passenger front seat. Since the seat heater is gone (race car!), this will keep the Mrs. comfortable.

I tried 5 quarts in the sump. But now the car pulls left when I hit the brakes.

This is hysterical and yes, Elijah Craig is nice.

So it's still leaking from the drain? I'm thinking of maybe converting to Yoshifab's press in threaded bit and running a threaded stainless hose. Not that I'm leaking there, just seems like a better solution?

How about this, I'll trade you my 85 wagon in some sort of multi-dimensional trade where you end up with all the stuff you want and I'll take the rest.

Biggest downside to my 85 is the body IMO, the roof is great but its not so great in the normal areas down low...

If you really get a Hakosuka. ...
Have fun.
If you think your wagon will be same expensive like a Hakosuka.... dream again.

First: check your gauge. I'very seen more " I will you present a number, don't know what it represents" instead of a precise instrument.

Meeeeeeh. Everyone will learn and go a few steps back if he builds his own project at first time
Waist of time to proclaim about this.

Have fun, Kay

Pulling the trans again: Yoshi T/O bearing, install unreachable screw in an exhaust heat shield, check for possible rear main seal leak.

Thx. I lay awake thinking deep thoughts. Such as: If we are supposed to have 4 bar of pressure, why is there a 3 bar gauge? And: What is Johnís chicken fetish all about?

About four weeks until the thanksgiving trip to SF. Family nervously dropping hints such as: ďIím really looking forward to road tripping the Volvo with the family.Ē

How the heck is it supposed to go in there? Didn't you convert this car to manual? I want to say I recall there being different years of bellhousings and I bet those parts too, maybe it needs something from a later car?
