  1. I agree, Rock has some great prices on select items BUT- I would like to add my two cents worth based on my experiences 1- Make sure that the part is the correct part for your vehicle. A lot of times the parts are listed by an interchange chart or something like that, and they will not fit. Example- spark plug wires for a 16v. There are 27 items listed, but none of them will fit the 16v engine. When in doubt, check the part numbers with other sources. Yes, Rock allows returns, but what are the savings if you pay $13.99 to have it shipped to you, and have to pay 13.99 to ship it back ( 28 bucks for shipping total) to get a refund on a part that is a "real-Deal" at 7.99?? Which brings me to no. 2-- While you are ordering parts online, open another screen and check prices at Ebay or Amazon. I have found this to be an ideal resource for price comparisons, and in a lot of cases the same, identical OEM or compatible parts are a lot cheaper than Rocks closeouts, and many offer free shipping. Just because they are closeouts at Rock doesn't mean that they are a great deal, although I have gotten some great bargains at the site.
  2. There is a Getrag/Muncie 284 trans for sale on e bay if anyone is interested $500.00
  3. Bought my 1st TC..

    I have used a very small pair of needle nose pliers, and a lot of finesse'. However, if all else fails, disconnect the battery, and squeeze hard until the bulb breaks. it's already burned out-right? Then all you have to do is grab the filament and yank out.
  4. Have you looked on this site? I have seen several for sale that meet your criteria There is one currently being advertised fro $2500 or so.......
  5. Bought my 1st TC..

    Same thing as the TC owners--getting old, stiff, and the grease dries out causing them to jam-up. Or, it could be a sending unit I have been down this road several times, and the best thing I ever did was take them to a repair facility and get the gears replaced, and the speedo cleaned and lubed. If you are really good with precision instruments you can do it yourself, but the shops have the skills and knowledge to do it right. -works like a charm now.
  6. Bought my 1st TC..

    There is a fellow in Newport News ( also in VA!) who sells these gears, if you are lucky he may even offer to repair your speedo, as he did mine! I will research this, and try to get you and answer asap.
  7. Ginger interior parts for sale

    Do you have the A/C brackets and line sets for the 16V?
  8. Bought my 1st TC..

    Congrats on your new toy! If you're ever down the Norfolk way, look me up. I have three TC's now, and am always willing to help a fellow TC'er. I have much experience in preserving the interiors and dyeing with leatherique. you may be surprised at what can be done with bad looking seats.

    What year/model is this list for?
  10. Rearview mirror glass

    Have you tried a Le Baron one? Seems like I had the same thing happen to me, and I went to a junkyard and found one that was a close match. I may have it still in my archives....

  12. Black rust oleum. Get a ultra fine tipped brush, and take your time. I did mine and it looks like oem.....
  13. Casualene

    Cosmoline, I have used it on many vehicles, it is sprayed on with a low pressure spray gun that gets it everywhere. The clear is the nicest, and looks better on inner fenders and underhood. the black, commonly used as an undercoat, tends to go everywhere, but it does what it is supposed to, be a rust preventative and sound deadener. A job best done outdoors, cause clean up is a B----h!
