I love knowing there are other people in the world loving on these cars. And I have extra love for people that mod and kit them. I had a heavily modded one back in the early 2000s, and I picked up a new one just this past year:
Yeah thats not bad. It's outdated but I like the body kit cars. Fortunately, I'm building it to make me happy not whats up to date.
Unfortunately the sun and weather has played hell on the old girl for 7 years so I got ALOT to fix it.
New tensioner and idler. Now I gotta figure out how to get the crank seal out without killing the paint.
At least thats behind the crank pulley so a small scuff wont show.
That one got cooked baking the paint which is why it didnt get changed prior.
Sounds like it might be a cable degredation issue. One or more sections of cable may be losing continuity when it gets hot. Our original battery cables are all pretty well past their reasonable service life at this point, especially in humid climates.
Yeah I replaced from the battery to the starter as well as from the battery to ground with 2 gauge cable. I still have to do from the starter to the megafuse and from the fuse to the Alt. Figure while I'm there I'll do the mod at the ALT for the charging due to lights flashing in the dash.
Main concern right now is the fan not working.
