  1. We have new accumulators available for the TC which we have been selling for 15 years and are also used on our complete remanufactured ABS units. There is definitely no guessing that these fit our Teves ABS system.
  2. Rick Diogo at RDI Performance is the very best real ASE certified mechanic in the country for your 16v TC. He has high performance parts and knows how diagnose and repair your engine correctly the first time. He stocks high performance clutches and performance modifications for the 8v and 16v TC. Results Driven Inc.
  3. We sell ours for $25 for any strut except the spare tire compartment. They are $20.
  4. We sell proper remanufactured TC antennas with the new mast for $95. More than Crutchfield but the right color and electrical plug.
  5. Bill, You are a good driver and know how to use a non-ABS system. I stated in one of the notes above that professional drivers have proven that they can stop faster in a non-ABS equipped car than one with ABS, and that the panic stops are where ABS helps. It is nice to know that an enthusiast got the car in St Louis. There still are a lot of cream puffs out there which are starting to surface. A red/black 5 speed with 700 miles not too long ago was shipped from CA to the east coast. As for Hemi and his personal attacks: Bitter and vindictive - he was writing to the man in the mirror. I
  6. Hemi, Just because someone does something for a long time does not make them good, honest or successful. I rebuilt my first engine in 1978 after taking college level power mechanics classes at Northern Arizona University. The fact that I have worked on cars for 35 years does not give me the privilege to call myself a mechanic. I have never charged labor for assisting friends, family, co-workers and other TC owners for the services I provide, as I am not ASE certified. For full disclosure, I have been given gifts in appreciation for some of the work I have done after TC owners had bad exp
  7. Since I have never been in a front end collision and was not there to witness yours, your version would be much more entertaining than mine. I don't speculate, I prefer to use facts and evidence to back my statements, like insurance claim data to show ABS systems and airbags cause less damage to vehicles and their occupants.
  8. Hemi, I recall you wrecking your TC in a front end collision on your way to Arizona. Did that car have ABS? There is a reason insurance companies give discounts for vehicles with ABS systems and airbags. They have less claims. Out of the 200 salvage cars I have, not one of the owners said they were in a collision because the ABS system failed. Two of the last ones without ABS did, and regretted being conned into a hack job non-ABS system which in the end cost almost as much as having a proper high-quality remanufactured unit that would last another couple decades. With the ABS system the
  9. Removing the ABS system from a TC is not a smart thing to do. Even my 1990 Chrysler Imperial has ABS, so Chrysler was already putting ABS systems in their cars in 1989. IF you do remove the ABS you are required to tell your insurance agent the car has been significantly modified and you may not be able to get it insured. If you are in a collision and the insurance company finds out you removed the ABS without notifying them, they could deny the claim. This was verified at the TC America National meet in May by one of the largest TC insurers in the country. I have an unusually high number o
  10. That's the advantage of having 180 of these cars - they were all hand built so no two are the same and it is easy to pick out the production changes/improvements along the way. The later built TCs used the better working, higher pressure, slightly longer strut which held the hatch open fully and did not need the operator to "pull up" on it to open. Similar changes were made to the hood, trunk and tonneau.
  11. I wonder why they sell theirs for over $6 more than ours if they are direct vendors? For the other struts they are almost twice as expensive.
  12. Tom, Yes I will be there. We'll have plenty of struts and other items along. Besides parts available at the meets, we do free adjustments like throttle body cleaning and horn lubrication and distribute materials from prior TC America newsletters I have done articles for. Plus antenna, speedometer, door post, accumulator, and accessory repairs/installation demonstrations for fellow TC America Club members who are registered for the full event. I'm bringing a video from MotorWeek that explains the ABS system that so many of ours cars have issues with if not maintained properly. See you Sunday
  13. It sounds like the Hall Effect Sensor (aka distributor pick-up sensor) is bad. Typical for the 4cyl turbo models.
