Front suspension refresh
Ive been dreading doing the tension bushings because it looked like a serious task but it had to be done. I could move it with my hands and it was so very noticeable on the road. What was in it was some sort of poly bushings and they did not fit at all. Im not even sure they ever did when some PO installed them. It was very loose. New parts to install though (both sides of course)...
Changing Front Strut Bearings
Changing the strut bearings means getting the struts out. I can deal with engines and drivelines, but I know diddly squat about suspension, so I got hopelessly confused by both the terminology, and by what attaches to what, functions how, and can move in which way. Hence, here's a pictorial guide to changing strut bearings. You know you will want to change yours if there are large cracks in the rubber support, even though I now realise that the c...onsequences of the rubber support failing are not as dire as I originally had thought - it supports the damping rod, the force of the spring is on the metal plate on the bottom of the strut support.
So, what is a strut bearing ?
It's a 1802 automatic and it flies !!!
This thing flies when you floor it and with the 4.11 diff. it leaves new cars way behind but ... i think i do 4mpg ... lol
I replaced the one barel pdsi solex that i had from a 2002 engine cause the jets were not matching and made a mess somehow ...
The engine is smooth, idle is perfect , it only drinks too much ... , maybe the electric fuel pump has anything to do with it or it's just the wrong jets ?
32 liters - 117 km ... ...

NEW PRODUCT! late model front bumper delete/ driving light brackets
I've had requests for a bumper-delete driving/fog lamp mount (late model impact bumper cars) the last couple years and it's been on the radar, just not at the top of the list...until recently.
It required a friend sending a pair of lights and telling me he was 'waiting for it', so it happened. I'm happy with the result.
quoted from www.kooglewerks.com :...
this kit is designed for late model US market impact bumper cars, (requiring the front bumper removed) adds to the function and vintage rally look by accommodating most common aftermarket lamps. (with two mounting positions for deep or shallow style lamps) comes with two CNC cut .090 steel brackets, two .090 steel mounting tabs, zinc coated metric mounting hardware and two formed ABS plastic cosmetic covers (install with 3m automotive tape) brackets are coated in semigloss black.
