  1. X2 with Kev. Ive had multiple of these cars at this point and never had one where once you remove the crank pulley bolt doesn't just slide off or require a light tap from a weighted plastic hammer. Even if it is hung up do what tux said above. You shouldn't need to purchase a puller.
  2. Agree with Kev. I see thar being more of a 25k car. Maybe 30 at an auction house.
  3. I went out to the garage at one point and realized I had left the driver side window down on the Starion back in September, so I put it up. Then I went back inside. Lol.
  4. Those are some awesome numbers Preludedude. Can't wait to drool over the pics. I fantasize about swapping my car. I'm so burnt out of dealing with minor molehill for tat problems and lack of Mitsu parts. But, I'm kinda like you ... I got another build on in my garage right now so I kinda just wanna drop it off somewhere and have someone do it for me. I'm done proving myself to others.
  5. Happy New Year all!! Still happy to be a part of this forum, despite how small it's gotten over the years
  6. I only do about 300 miles a year. I never go far b/c it always seems to have a quirky issues. Farthest away I've driven it is an hour. A few local shows each year and that's about it. I'd like to drive it more, but that's about it these days.
  7. I read a week ago or so where you replied with the same info about the wear on the bearing ... which is why I'm not interested in rebuilding this again. Seriously, I probably only have 1500-1000 miles on this rebuild. I'd like to find an alternate pump solution.
  8. This thread is a few months old, but I meant to post this a while back. BUGG is correct, the switch is down inside the passenger side latch. I never did mess with it to figure out my problem (could just be the bulb honestly), but here's a pic of the switch.
  9. Just an update to this thread ... the link Texas posted on eBay ... I purchased the rebuild kit ... waited about a month and then with no communication or warning I got a full refund. Guess they are NLA. So, I'm not sure what I'm gonna do. I have some DSM power steering pumps laying around. I think I'm gonna see if there's not some way to make one of them work on the car using the OEM bracket over the winter.
  10. Gas tank looks amazing! Like what you did with the fuel pump.
  11. Question: how are you separating the lens and then what are using to put them back together?
  12. Lot of hours into all that assembly. I know. Did it all myself too. Looking great. Can't wait to swing by and see more of the progress in person.
  13. Griots was mentioned earlier in the thread. A good friend of mine with a 66 Galaxie talked me into Griots products about 2 years ago. I've never looked back. I've noticed a huge difference in the way the car looks and stays. Love their products for detailing.
  14. Man ... wish I would have known about this last winter when I totally rebuilt my rear subframe. Doh.
