  1. Interesting Color for sure. I think I would prefer the original color which was White\Tan. They did good job this color change but did not cover all the old color areas, Ft strut towers, trunk support mounts, and underneath. With the touch up issues I don't think it will make the asking price.
  2. I always had the OX sensor wire routed away from everything before the move. I am not sure which source was inducting into the other. This issue kept the car from making the Allentown show. I was at such a loss on the issue I put the car up for sale. I had no idea's left. Then took one more look over everything. Thought the harness was low, tied it up and took for test drive. Problem solved. Been running great since.
  3. I had a bad issue with shudder/ miss under load. I went over things several times and after a lot of time swapping parts to test. I found the large wire harness that runs left to right on the firewall was hanging down near OX sensor and plug wires. I pulled it back up and wire tied it. Problem was finally solved. You can lookup my posts on this to see everything I tried to solve this issue.
  4. Oil cans are just link the Freon cans, just say oil on them. They are under pressure just like the Freon cans. You can use the same hose setup you used to add the Freon.
  5. Since system was evacuated you will need to add oil before adding the Freon or use can with oil added. I have done several r22 to r134 conversions and always added oil first.
  6. That Chain Tensioner looks like the small 88 part that was changed in 89. The one listed above is the later design. I made this change on my 88 when I did the chain. If this is in a 91, That makes me wonder how it got in here ?
  7. Been Driving mine to Cars and Coffee almost every week (6) since lock downs in my area are in Stage 2 or better and don't affect outdoor gatherings. Switched to Non Ethanol Fuel and the car likes it. Runs smoother and gas mileage is up from 25 plus mixed to 27.5 same route. If my car sits to long I have to put battery tender on it.
  8. Ronnie, I still think the ROJ is still used a lot. I know I use it. Hoping to do some projects on my Reatta that might go there. My Car is off market for now. If I do plan to sell it again it will be on BAT. Hope you are doing well. I will PM you soon. Thank You and everyone that has been on the Forum and ROJ. As I have said before my car would have been in the scrap yard years ago without both of these sites, and I have learned so much from these sites and from all the work I have done to my Reatta.
  9. KDirk wrote this up. This is the guide I used. Ronnie this might be a good one to save to the ROJ. Hope Everyone Has a Wonderful Day!!
  10. Reatta Colors has it as a 1 of 19 with Black top. I agree about looking good with black, company did nice job with install.
  11. Here is the car from the FB market place. Wow on how much money was spent on this over time. Shame he put in the black carpet https://www.ebay.com/itm/324162017013?fbclid=IwAR1JYq1yDz0ApdYiUZJ5PxGfE6_lqqRf4QZgmFtunigkc-gDcKHo8cvj4O0
  12. If I remember correctly if you unplug the radio unit form the car. And plug it back in it will default to tape mode. Did you select the radio mode on the screen to switch it after you connected it ? Also I followed instructions I found that scrap the outputs of the factory radio. ( this eliminated all the caps and chips for output. ) Wired in RCA out from pre-amp to Sony Amp in trunk. I have been running this setup for 3 or 4 years now with no issues. This also eliminates the DNR function of the radio.
  13. Padget. I am not sure what part was affecting which part with the induction interference.. Nothing showed up on the Diagnosis or out of spec when driving and looking at the running sensor parameters. I think I have an old thread for misfire under load. I really went over all ignition parts 4 times. One thing though this issue started after a MAF failure. Replaced everything, swapping parts back and forth doing testing. I was so frustrated I think I might have put it up for sale at that time. Been running perfect since then.
  14. I had an issue with random misfires under load. It was bad enough it kept the car from attending the Allentown event. After going over ignition related stuff 3 or 4 times with no solution and tins of frustration. I found the large loomed wire harness on the firewall was not tied up high but much lower, about mid way down, Near OX sensor. I pulled up the harness and tied it up high. Problem solved. I was getting inducted signals from the harness.
  15. When it dark enough out side or in you garage with light off. open the hood and start it. See if you have any arcing from the plug wires to ground. I would suspect the rear bank wires first. I you do not see any arcing then it may be bad coil pack, spark plug wire or spark plug. How old are the Wires and Spark plugs?
