  1. My car setup is with the 2 low temp thermosensors installed with a jumper wire connected to each for added security that they both come on at the same time. I've never ran hot in the Texas heat since.

  2. Picked up the new copy of the rear graphic. It's hard to see but it's laying on the table in front of my old hatch. Measured and marked everything out. Ran a credit card over it a few times to make sure we had good adhesion. I increased the gap between the "N" in Starion and the "E" in ESIR b/c I felt like on my old hatch the graphic kinda all ran together and looked like one long word. I like the spacing better this time around.

  3. Running rich like that just washes the oil off the cylinder walls and dilutes the oil. If it was a fresh engine and you did that you might have sealing issues but on a engine with miles on it I wouldn't expect anything and especially not pitting. I think at some point water / coolant got into that engine and it sat a while.

  4. At this point, I like to connect the battery and check the function of everything. Test your seatbelts and make sure they lay right when the door is closed. You could do this prior as well, it is your call but I at least do it prior to installing the steering wheel. Last is the steering wheel. If you never touched the steering since you lined it all up during removal, simply toss on the wheel centered. If you did mess with it, it may take you some trial and error to get it back on right. Install the lockwasher and 17mm head nut. To check the steering, leave the nut lose and take it for a drive. If you are comfortable with the position, tighten it down. And pop on the center cover. If it is an 83-84, screw it on from the back with four screws

  5. Getting closer. I was able to get the hatch installed tonight with help of my wife. Just need to wrap up a few odds and ends. A little hard to see the "TURBO" in this light, but it'll look good - I promise. I contacted the graphics company that made my rear graphic back in '16, luckily they still had the graphic on file so I'll picking that up tomorrow.

  6. This forum is struggling to stay alive with extremely limited membership, and we still have this silliness…. Surely the 9 people who frequent here can all get along. 😁

  7. When it's ready to go back on, you can get reproduction hinge bushings from Schiemann Composites/Kyle Schiemann, in case you weren't aware. Not sure how many he has right now, but I got a set from him back in February. Now I can actually adjust the hatch to get all of the spoiler pieces flush.

  8. Pretty sure that car was owned by a member here. I'm 99% sure those are my tail lights on that car. I traded him for the Euros on my car now b/c he wanted to make it all original. I remember him saying he got the car in Connenticut which the ad mentions.
