  1. Hi Nile, I replaced my old sailcloth top with a tan Hartz on my V6 TC years ago. The Hartz top is expensive. I appreciated the look and feel much better than the original but you must use a good sealant on the top. It seems to stain easily. I used the Ragg Top products and we're pleased with them. My current 16 valve has an original sailcloth in A1 condition and I use the Ragg Top products with great results on that material. When and if I have to replace it I will go with the Hartz.
  2. Are there really only 40 of the 16 valves left? According to the auction that's about it. I wasn't aware the AACA had that information.
  3. Hi Hemi, thanks for the tip. I just ordered it.
  4. Does anyone know where I can get an ASD (automatic shutdown) relay for a 1989 DOHC?
  5. Hi Ronnie, You are not butting in. I appreciate the input. I don't know to make the pump run continuously. The TC has a schrader valve on the fuel rail and I have checked to see that I have fuel running to that point.
  6. Well when it comes to the TC I have a moderate level of competence. When I was young I was an A6 Intruder technician, but that was years ago. I don't believe I have any spark. I will look at replacing the HEP, I am just puzzled at why I had ignition prior to replacing the fuel lines and the distributor, rotor and wires.
  7. The fuel pump prime does run and there is a click from the ASD.
  8. It was built in Feb 89 and has an uncommon block. The SMEC is probably an 89. The car ran ok before I replaced the fuel lines etc. I have not heard the fuel pump prime when I turn it to the run position, but it is a new fuel pump that worked fine before the lines were replaced. I will have to check for the ASD sound.
  9. My 16 valve will crank, but not start. It ran before I replaced the fuel lines with new ones and also replaced the distributor cap with a new one along with the coil wire and the plug wires I got from Rick Diogo. The fuel pump was already replaced a few months back. Any suggestions as to where I should check for the non starting problem?
  10. Could someone please give me the torque spec for the 16 valve engine cover nuts?
  11. I am having a problem with my heater/ac controls. When selecting the control buttons it does not matter whether the vent, floor or defroster is selected. The air mostly comes out of the defroster and a bit out of the heater regardless but not the vents. I suspect it is a vacuum problem. Can anyone suggest where to start?
  12. Go to white gauges on the internet to get the yellow overlays.
  13. I bought another TC, this one a low mileage 16V out of Atlanta. My last TC was a V6 and my experience with the 16 valve is nil. I have the Chrysler dealer repair manual, for the TC, but it does not specify how to gain access to the distributor. Can anyone share some information on this? I also want to put new plugs in it and it appears that the valve cover gasket should be replaced as I noticed a small amount of engine oil at the bottom of each spark plug as they sit before being removed. Which brings up another question; what size socket is needed for the spark plug?
  14. Hi Guys, The wrecked TC you see posted recently from Richmond, VA was totaled by me in December. Please remove vin ZC2FS1204LB206173 from the roster of survivors.
