  1. soft top installation

    hey! long time no see! the "old" roof and the one on my former 89 were perfectly sealing at the header....there must be a way to get it right...still have to give it another try!...
  2. soft top installation

    I suspect, it was never used once! I installed it in the same spots with the shims underneath and before I latched it for the first time, I adjusted the pull down motor height - it was super tight so I tried to find a way to make it a little looser and at the same time, closing without letting a breeze through it...will try to make it fit perfectly!
  3. soft top installation

    nope...it does not seal at all..it touches the header but wind blows through it...I'll loosen the 6 bolts and try to re align...
  4. thats a good question..my AC Delco with the same part number does not have this port...I assume that it will work in the TC!
  5. get it before its gone! I got the same model from amazon while it was still available! ( same part number, fits our TC !!!) http://www.ebay.com/itm/ABS-Accumulator-Ball-Delco-25528382-Compatible-/311491977981?hash=item48865e62fd:g:Kt8AAOSw2GlXHqPP&vxp=mtr
  6. soft top installation

    ok..here we go...removed my old black cloth top and put the new old top exactly where the old one was seated...had to adjust the height of the pulldown motor for about 10mm...everything looks good so far...but, as you can see in the pics, it does not perfectly sit ..played around with the adjustment screws but not sufficient - there is just too much of a gap between the top and the receiving surface. it looks perfect from the outside! any ideas on how to make it fit again?
  7. any pointers on installing the soft top ? ( except for marking the original location to get a better fit)# thaaaaaanks
  8. Well, I looked at Ghostmostys post and decided to drive those 71 miles from West Hollywood to San Bernardino..took 90 minutes...another 3 hours to get the stuff that I needed...back home by 6pm...with a nice sunburn.. <THANK YOU for pointing out that TC, Ghostmosty!! I was rewarded with a brand-new black cloth top! and door handles, etc...tail lights, rear reflector...scratched my perfect leather inside of course!.. if somebody wants some more parts, there is plenty left! check out the pics
  9. ordered new TPS, wanted to install, just to see that the plug does not fit at all! The TPS module plug looks the same on all variations that come up in Rockautos search for the V6 Mitsubishi Engine but my connection is different...3 pins but different shaped plug...because the installed TPS is the one that you can usually find in the 4cyl Turbo Engine.... called Airtex : they told me that all these different part numbers are technically all the same inside and are interchangeable - so if you have to change the TPS, look at the connection first!

    Thanks to Digger914, I am researching Air Idle Control modules...and came across some interesting no name brands on ebay and amazon. I was wondering if I could trust those very cheap versions compared to the expensive brand parts... thoughts:

    justed closed her up again..air intake plenum gasket was not correctly in place so there was a huge gap...vac leak fixed...but got codes: 12, 14, 42 twice! I have no idea why it keeps ciming up with that MAP sensor code...replaced it with a new one, all connections are perfect.. 42..auto shutdown relay driver circuit....never had that before either....btw...no check engine light .... runs a little rough now but still have to take a little test drive.. engine 2.MOV
  13. Fuel Injectors

    Hemi! thanks for the fast reply as usual!!..I did not let it run for longer than 1.5 minutes so no, op. temp was not reached.engine light did not come on..yes, got the 195 degree thermo. I think your assumption towards vac leak is correct - will have to check later today! thanks... ( will report back)
  14. Fuel Injectors

    got my remanufactured Nikki Flow injectors today ( ebay) and installed them...car starts and goes to over 2000rpm..even after almost 2 minutes, rpm does not go down any idea why? ( check video!) IMG_8272.mp4IMG_8272.mp4
