  1. Hemi once again has provided great advice. These early A604s were terrible transmission-most were replaced under warranty. My 47K 91 still has the original unit and I can't expect it to last more than 70K. Being technically knowledgeable-I'd tear it down and rebuild it my self as it's a pretty simple transaxle. I had a few rebuilt in the past in other Chrysler products, they usually run $1400-$1800 with all updated parts. Another option would be to convert it to the older A670 3-speed auto used in lower trim minivans and passenger cars with the 3.0. It will require some re-wiring but it's a far more robust transmission than the A604 in my opinion.
  2. Heads up Pick-N-Pull recently got in a 1990 TC. Looks to have taken a bad hit to the left side, probably lots of good parts for picking. Link: https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/ZC2FS1201LB205059?fbclid=IwAR1oqWeVVS9xRaaa50B_MpM3TH0BpJIbxZwz5Xme_Eyc_s8bIeCoJ3WsYzc
  3. Like Hemi said, you can have the hoses rebuilt. A reputable hose repair shop will replace the rubber and recrimp them. I've had some done for other cars where the hoses were no longer available.
  4. Thanks for the link. My soft top shows it's age, it spent several years in FL without the hard top so it's faded and has a small tare in it. I was hoping to find a complete good used assembly to drop in, rather than the whole top skin. I did that with my old Volvo C70 convertible. Just a few bolts and the whole assembly comes out.
  5. Here's mine, not currently on the list 206934 1991 Arctic White Ginger V6
  6. There are several decent sounding TCs in the most recent newsletter. I've got a white 91 that I'd trade for a yellow V6.
  7. If the pan was sealed with RTV sealant, make sure you get all the old RTV sealant off of the bolts and inside the bolt holes. They will cause the bolt hole threads to strip in the transmission if you don't.
  8. Fingers crossed that I can make it to the Jefferson show next year. The TC is doing better and I hopefully got the transmission issues ironed out.
  9. This might be old news for some, but I replaced the original accumulator on my 91 with 46K as part of the ABS system maintenance. As we all know these have a shelf life of 10 years or 120K. My car is nearly 30 years old (2/90 build date) so it's way overdue. Doing some research, the AC Delco part 25528382 is NLA and the Jaguar part JLM1907 is ridiculously overpriced. A little research later I found that the Wabco STC2784 Accumulator is a direct fit and costs shy of $200. It's for Land Rover/Range Rovers and are readily available. The Reatta guys have been using it for a while with no ill effects. I installed it on my 91 this past weekend. Performs great. Before, every time I'd start the car the red "BRAKE" and ABS lights would stay on for about 30 seconds and the pump would run for a while until the system built pressure. Now, even after multiple trips and the red "BRAKE" light doesn't even illuminate and the ABS light comes on for the customary system check and goes off. Very happy with the results. The accumulator is slightly larger then stock but fits snugly. Also performed a brake flush, which I'll probably do again since it had never been done before. https://www.amazon.com/Wabco-Land-Rover-STC2784-Accumulator/dp/B01GURVBAE
  10. That's the way I'd normally do it, but my 91 is an all original 46K mile example and I want to keep it as original as possible. I'm going to replace my accumulator along with a brake flush (never been done as far as I know)...now if I can find a lesser loved 90-91 V6 car I'd have fun, delete the Teves and do a manual transmission swap.
  11. The accumulator is the same as GM part 25528382 or Jaguar JMC1907. Chrysler discontinued the parts decades ago, the GM part has been "Discontinued" but the Jag part is still available, at a pretty high cost. I ran those numbers on eBay and found several new units available for around $280+ with positive reviews, they are not specifically labeled by who manufactures them. These accumulators do have a shelf life of 10 years, so getting a "New Old Stock" unit may not be wise.
  12. It was a kit made specifically for the TC, not sure of the company still exists but I have the paperwork for it. I'll check tonight. It does rotate but it's pretty easy to control and use.
  13. Top looks beautiful! Mine, despite the cars low original mileage, looks much more worn then the rest of the car. Because for 10+ years it was a Florida vacation home car and the original owners left the hard top in Wisconsin when they shipped the car down there. So it's faded and has a ugly rip in it, not to mention the broken top pull down. Hoping to source a nice used tan soft top. The guy I bought from included a "Top Hoist" which consists of a crank cable pulley system, a special top holding bar and straps. Works well. I wish I had a bigger garage so I can safely store the hard top out of the way.
  14. As pointed out, all 91 TCs were built in 1990. My 91 is a Feb 90 build date, most of the original parts are stamped "1989". I usually look up parts as a 90 3.0 TC or Lebaron.
