  1. I might try that & hope for the best. I think they're required to put all that info into a computer system now so I think they can look up what it was rejected for but i don't know if most places even bother to check. Might try & rig something up long enough to get a sticker & then put my old one back in once it passes. Can't get the kind of antique tag that let's you not get inspections unless you have another registered vehicle since you can only drive but so many miles a year on those tags.
  2. Probably a stupid question but are there any headlights that could be made to fit a TC without looking too terrible? My TC has a hole in the headlight glass on the driver's side from a rock being thrown from a dump truck & won't pass my state's safety inspection even if I used clear sealant. I cannot afford the $150+ that everybody seems to want for one & cannot drive without an inspection sticker. I am desperately trying to figure something out before my inspection runs out next month as my TC is my 1 & only means of transportation. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Might have to ghetto rig something temporarily until I can afford to replace it properly.
  3. I don't know what torque steer is but I have yet to notice any difference at all after putting the longer shaft in except I no longer hear that awful clicking noise when I turn. As far as suspension, I am getting new shocks & struts installed in the next week or 2 because I'm pretty sure mine are O.G. 30 year old parts & my car is a little bouncy.
  4. We hammered the sh-- out of it with no luck. I also asked this question on the TC Facebook page I think I'm going to just toss it & put in the longer shaft.
  5. I'm trying to replace the CV shaft on the right side.. how do I separate it from the intermediate shaft? We cannot get it to come out! Thanks in advance!
  6. Here's 207302 v6 01/1990 red & ginger: https://m.facebook.com/jessie.buhr/posts/pcb.353040411907126/?photo_id=10217681491051070&mds=%2Fphotos%2Fviewer%2F%3Fphotoset_token%3Dpcb.353040411907126%26photo%3D10217681491051070%26profileid%3D1577523930%26source%3D48%26refid%3D18%26ref%3Dm_notif%26notif_t%3Dgroup_activity%26__tn__%3DEH-R%26cached_data%3Dfalse%26ftid%3D&mdf=1
  7. Thanks for the write up. Definitely far more involved than it was on my LeBaron those LeBaron windows were easy.
  8. Hemi I like the 'Baron clip on the TC lol just having fun or is that someone's project? I'd love to see more pics of that!
  9. Reaper where can you find performance parts? They seem to be hard to find for these engines. Are there better bearings available or do they just need to be replaced? I was told my engine has about 80k miles but with the odometer failing at 7,800 miles who really knows but it runs excellent so far only thing I had to do was the timing belt when it broke.
  10. Nevermind found it was a line I blocked off because I didn't see a line anywhere. Hooked it up & now my hvac blows where I tell it to instead of only on the windshield. Sadly, my turbo is nowhere near as functional as it was with that line off for some reason..
  11. Found a broken end on one vacuum line & found this little guy hanging down near the turbo & cannot for the life of me find where it goes! Sorry for the crappy pic best I could get of it but it's the line with the white plastic circle thing near the end.
  12. My 1989 SOHC has started bogging down for a quick second when I am hard on the accelerator but if I let off the gas some it stops & if I accelerate lightly it runs fine & doesn't do it. Not sure what could cause this but it is driving me nuts. It started shortly after I put the glasspack muffler on but idk if changing that could cause this issue. My dad checked the timing & it was too high now that he retarded the timing the problem seems even worse. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Midnight Cruiser can you screenshot it? I don't want to create an account just to see it. Turbo Kane that car is beautiful I can't wait until I can afford new paint! What badge is on the side? I took the Turbo badges off of my LeBaron when I scrapped it but I'm not sure they would look right on the TC I haven't decided yet.
  14. I just bought the car in November so idk when it failed but I imagine it didn't take too long to put 7k on it, even if they only drove on nice days
  15. That looks scary! Need to check mine & make sure mine isn't on the verge. Always stops fine but sometimes my ABS & Brake light will pop on for a minute or so & then turn back off. Hopefully I don't need one of those $300 accumulators! Side question: does the swap use the same parts from the LeBaron? I was thinking about selling my '88 Convertible but I might just strip some stuff & scrap it if there's enough parts that I need. The 'Baron's brakes always worked good. As long as I can keep the TC's rear disc brakes, I might consider a swap..
