  1. Didnt quite think the thing through but it is a work in progress and build as you go type deal. Trying to strengthen the wings so i can lift from it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  2. Find a good donor transmission or have it rebuilt is your best bet unfortunately. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

  5. Tell him he can pound sand. Lol. Have you ever been in a front end collision or see any evidence of such? My 93 originally had a copper radiator but most are now aluminum. Make sure your condenser and radiator fins are clean and not clogged up. Home depot has some type of coil/fin cleaner for home HVAC units but i do not knoe if it's snake oil to try. Cheap but wouldn't hurt. A gentle stream from the garden hose will work too if you do not have mud clogging it up. Make sure the fins are straight. Take care to bend then straight with a small thin flathead or similar tool. Stock use to have foam filter guides to "seal" the sides of the condenser and radiator so the fan can efficiently pull air through the fan shroud without air leak. You can use aluminum tape or rubber gasket liner from home depot as a replacement. All this is to ensure maximum efficiency of the stock mechanical fan. When you press the ac switch and turn on the fan dies the clutch engage? If not check to make sure the single wire plug is hooked up to the compressor. It follows the distributor harness to the side. Plugged and not frayed or broken check to see if you have pressure in the line. If it is too low or too high, the compressor clutch will not engage. Check to make sure your high and low pressure lines do not have cracks. Get yourself a recharge kit and follow directions. When it gets up to pressure the compressor will kick on but if you have air in the lines, it will-over pressurised and the compressor clutch will disengage to prevent an explosion. The auto parts store has rental vacuum pumps and manifold gauges. Even harbor freight if you want to buy. Use their coupons if you do. Also keep in mind there is a ratio of oil for so many oz of refrigerant. You do not want to overoil. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  6. The distances should be relatively the same for both sides. Was the caster issue related to the side with little space between the bump stop?What is your alignment numbers? There were some arms (welded badly but cannot remember the brand) that caused funny alignment issues. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  7. Removing the shim will help with the positive camber. When you crank up the torsion bars it lift the front which pulls the tierods in closer giving you neg toe. You can do a diy alignment to get thr alignment closer to spec until get it professionally done. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  8. Rust holes on top windshield...still need to replace windshield too so I'll deal with the leak or don't drive it on raining days.
  9. Had a couple hours to lay some booger welds. May need to reinforce the stock bumper bracket for more rigidity or leave it as-is for a failsafe. Using 3/16 plate. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  10. Lift it some more and it will get rid of some of thr positive camber. Cut down the bumpstop until youre new low profiles come in. Drive around a bit with sandbags or weight in the back to help the springs settle in the rear. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  11. Nope. Never did the relay mod as I did not have issues with starting back then. I may just pull the starter out and take it apart to inspect and clean. I switched back over to a remote oil filter so it's a possibility with the oil spills gunking it up.
  12. Lately, I have been having this random no start issues. I turn the key to start and do not get any clicking or anything. Lights do not dim. Nothing. Then after a few tries after a wait it turns over like nothing happened. Any ideas as to what all I need to check first before looking for a replacement starter? Alternator tested good and same with battery. 93 Automatic.
  13. Trying to figure out wing design.. not liking this version... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  14. Definitely take some pictures Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  15. I cannot rmember when the design changed. They went from a full sheet to holes stamped into them. If you can get the supercharged tc thst be great but understandable if you cannot. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
