  1. If you get rebuilt axles from a parts store, check the ABS ring. Most likely it will be incorrect for a TC. Even though it will probably bolt right in, the wrong ABS ring WILL destroy the sensor as the TC ABS rings are slightly smaller in diameter than the regular Chrysler parts. They can be swapped, however.
  2. Wow, those Sebring wheels don't look bad! What are their specs? Obviously 16", but width and offset? I liked how the RPF1's fit my TC (16x7 +35)...too bad I broke 2 when I wrecked my Daytona a while ago. Hitting a curb at 45+mph will kinda do that.
  3. The knob has a 1-way "clip spring" in it. You need to use a small pick or the like to go behind it and into the little hole to depress that spring to allow you to be able to pull the knob off the shaft (that sounds so wrong LOL). Or, you could opt for the "brute force" method as it WILL come off...but you stand a chance of breaking something else, and that knob is TC specific IIRC.
  4. I want to say that might be a spacer used for the dash installation. You will find that type of thing all over these cars, and none are *exactly* the same...part of the "fun" of a hand-built car. Usually these end up cracked and in a million pieces on your carpet.
  5. Wawa was originally a Northeast thing from what I remember...Maryland, Pennsylvania area. I was shocked to see them down south when they first popped up.
  6. You might just be able to "ask Google". I haven't ever tried that, but it could be worth a shot. There HAS to be a major depot that services your area. Maps might even help.
  7. Yup. This is hopefully home for the foreseeable future! I'll do my best to make it!
  8. Find out where the fuel trucks go to fill up. That will give you the answer you are looking for.
  9. I'll get with you here shortly. I am in need of a couple of things, actually. Now that Doyle made the 2200 mile trek to Missouri, he deserves some TLC!
  10. I also can duplicate the lenses out of plastic. Been giving it serious thought the last couple of years. I'd also put a protective film on them for UV and such, but that adds to the cost. I've also thought about doing a projector conversion, but I am not sure I'd like the look of projectors on a TC.
  11. Well, I just made the LONG 2200 mile or so trip from Seattle to St. Louis because I moved. The convoy of vehicles were: 26' Budget box truck towing my '89 Royal Cabernet TC, my '99 Ram 2500 towing my '88 Shelby Z, me driving my '90 Daytona, and my friend driving the '89 16V TC. We had *1* major failure, and I hate that it was on the 16V car. The timing belt tensioner munched the bearing. Good thing these engines aren't interference, and I happened to have a spare on the other TC. We got it swapped and back on the road in less than an hour on the side of the highway! The thing is, n
  12. V6 cars don't need premium. They don't gain ANY power by running it. The turbo cars *can* gain performance *IF* you are using it hard. Yes, you can get better fuel economy with "regular". Keep in mind that higher octane burns slower, so technically it is less "energetic". As for what fuels to run for keeping the best running...I know that Chevron Techron has (or had) a BG additive pack in it and it does work very well. Keep in mind, the gasoline you get at ANY pump (except Shell, they have their own tanks) ALL comes from the exact same tanks! The ONLY dif
  13. Make sure the coil wire is actually fully seated. Sometimes the boots don't allow it to snap all the way down. Also check that the rotor button is in the cap. While it is new, it could be a bad part out of the box (seen it). Other than that, check the codes as described above. It very well could be that the HEP "died" by being messed with. The wires tend to break from fatigue inside of the insulation.
  14. Where are the fender badges? If it's a 16V car (factory 5-speed should be), it should have badges.
  15. Sounds like the tach is off, honestly. If it truly is winding up that hard, are you SURE it is getting into 3rd gear? 3000rpm should be right around 70mph.
