  1. how about replacing the whole thing with this; FIAMM 74100 El Grande
  2. most of the time, my horn works only when activating it for at least 3 to 5 seconds..starts with 1 tone, then 2 then all 3...sounds a little weak due to something I was not able to discover yet... all hoses are replaced and tight, connections look good... what could prevent my horn from beeping right away? anyone?
  3. Thanks Hemi! and yes, I am referring to excessive oil consumption/smoke...that already killed the original kat last year... so far, I came across a couple of decent looking shops that would charge between 12 and 1500 for the job...will make sure that everything you mentioned will also be replaced..thats almost a rebuilt engine
  4. any pointers for a much needed valve job on my 1990 v6 TC? what SHOULD be included? while in the shop, I would also like the AC to be repaired ( has leak) and converted maybe someone even has a recommendation for a shop near west hollywood. as usual; thank you very much for your help!
  5. have to say, it drives like a new car now...new balljoints dont appear to be "wrong" or weird in any way... last thing to do: valve job
  6. Thanks a lot Reaper and Twincamfan! will install today and report back
  7. update...went to certified parts AND autozone and looked at every single ball joint for the TC, Lebaron, Dynasty, New Yorker..they mostly have the same part numbers and are interchangable and they all feature a slighly wider gap..therefore, I will install the one I have and see what happens. Looks like nobody was able to find an exact match!
  8. well...since I am originally from germany, I never had to deal with illogical measurements and can only really live with metrics...(no offense please!) so...It will not work...the "new" balljoint I ordered today will be the same wrong measurement and I have no idea where to get the correct ones... that just made my day... thanks for letting me know - I did not know there would be an issue...do you have any idea where to get the correct ones? I despise autozone parts...but if thats the last resort, so be it..
  9. I would say, its a mm off...great..means I am f&^$%*(
  10. are we talking about the grooves in the balljoint?
  11. the original is on the right...
  12. it was actually not that hard to get them out...with a press and then a hammer.... so whereever I look up this part, it always shows me the one with the hex...there is NO part number on the original... car drives fine as a DD! so are you saying, they will not fit? work?
  13. more questions...ordered 2 balljoints from rockauto...they send me 2 different ones...one with a smaller diameter and the grove slightly off, the other one with the correct diameter, correct grove but with a hex head... question...can I use the one with the hex? at this point, I am not sure... need a quick reply car is on jacks and I need if for my job...
  14. great...just finished restoring my 1990 TC - exchanged the entire front ( bumpers, fenders, hood) and got it detailed today..the whole car looked perfect! it lasted not even an hour..I parked, fed the meter, ordered a juice..waited for it, looked out the door and saw this cluesless lady in a beat up PRIUS! ( I f$#%@% hate them ) hitting my front driver side bumper.... looks like I need a sliding bracket ( both parts?) I did not look underneath the car today but it sure feels like the bracket is gone... anyone got one for sale for me?
  15. thanks reaper1!
