How to depin the round connector

Approach from the blade side and insert as follows

Then pull the wires out the back

The blades look like this.  They lock in the square opening on the back.  I looked for awhile but couldn't find a replacement for these.  I think they are made by Furukawa.

I got my wheels out today and washed them.  This picture is before washing them.  I haven't touched them since I had them refinished at Wheel Collision Center because I believe they have a polishing compound on them and I wanted wash that off.

Posted Image

I took each wheel and washed them and then set them against the garage to dry.  Then I took each one and dried them. As I finished the last one I looked back and noticed that weights fell off.  Wheel Collision Center mounted and balanced these tires on rims they refinished.

The bad thing is that I don't know which rim they fell off of. Now each rim needs to go and be checked

I had the same problem.  I just needed a new hose since the old one was brittle and not sealing well on the nipple at the cap

I bought some new black hose at the hardware store and cut it to the right length.   Let me know how your new hose works out.  I think some colored hose would look nicer.....

You could always use the 180 bend part of that hose and get a brass hose barb coupler and cut hose to length.

I changed the routing of the coolant overflow hose on my car.   The overflow tank was designed to be on the passenger side, which is where it resides on the early models.  So I ran my hose to from the radiator towards the passenger side and then down under the core support with a much more generous bend and back to the slop tank mounted in the factory location.  I turned the cap on the slop tank 90 degrees to align the nipple to the hose as I routed it.  Not sure if I have a good pic handy but can take one.   The sharp 180 degree bend right at the radiator is the problem.   I donít see the reason why it needs to be routed on top of the core support upper member.

I wonder if the antifreeze will be pulled back into the radiator with that longer length?

Last year the radiator developed a small leak on the top of the tank.  I took it to Greg's Radiator in Plymouth Meeting, Pa.

Posted Image

The radiator was very thin around the top hose.  He had to add a ring to support it.

Posted Image

Radiator is all back together. That was a job!

Posted Image

Occasionally the radiator would not pull the antifreeze back into the radiator from the overflow tank.  I wanted to use the factory hose but they are NLA.  I searched for another and found this one https://conceptzperf...roh_p_26309.php

Bad original hose

Installed

Now here is a problem.  My hood has never shut great because of an accident long ago.  What I  had to do is get the bend on the 180 sitting in the relief close to the cap.  If I have it like this the hood closes ok.

Posted Image

Hose was contacting the weather strip

Posted Image

We'll see how this goes. The hose can be routed other ways but I'm trying the stock approach first.
