  1. pizzaman--close-but no cigar.

    The Miller tool required for the TC is the MST6400.

    I have one of the few.

    It has been to England-Germany-Italy-Canada-Alaska and Hawaii.

    If only I could travel as well as my tester.

    Rob--When you have a repair manual-and a good brake service person-I would be glad to let you borrow the tester. Where are you.

    Funny thing is--I have the tester--but NO Teves system.

    I also have a Chrysler dealer DVD that explains the Teves system as well as anything Ive seen. If you would like one-just let me know. ---Tim Cowan


  2. What you see in the photos are an Ansa Itallian made muffler. Just another cost cut from TC concept to the cars we got delivered. Like the fact in catalog photos the rims were chrome plated. Cost cut.

    The Ansa muffler were going to cost approx. $120ea. Instead Chrysler chose the standard K car muffler at $23 ea.

    BTW--after importing the standard K car muffler--they ended up costing closer to $90ea. Gotta love the Itallian Government.

  3. The gas tank grommet # is 5217578.

    All mopar products from 1984 to 1997 used this part-including our TC's.

    I know of 4 TC's here in florida that has needed this part this year-including mine.

    If on start up you smell gas -but can't find a leak

    If when you fill up and take the gas cap off and DONT hear a vacuum-suck sound when you take the gas cap off

    If you are replacing the fuel pump


    And yes you have to drop the tank to install this part.

    Our local Chrysler/Dodge Dealer in Lakeland averages 6 installs a week for this part. They keep at least 10 in stock at all times.

  4. First---I plan on not only buying several copies of Hemmings TC issue when they come out in Aug.--I plan on BUYING a subscription with a BIG thankyou to Hemmings for doing an article on our cars.

    Please take the time to let Hemmings know how much this means to us-the TC diehards.

    Dot et all--here you go----


  5. In the early TC photos from Chrysler-you will see a Nardi wood steering wheel. That deal was pulled when costs were cut on the project, In 1989 a MOMO wheel was used-at the time about 1/3 the cost of a Nardi. For 1990 the standard air bag Chrysler wheel was used.

    The best way to find a Nardi wheel I have found is E-Bay. Go to auto parts and enter "Nardi" in the search box. You will also need an adapter. The steering column used in all TC is a GM column made by Saginaw gear.

  6. Yellowdog--9 out of 10 times I have seen this problem it's a sensor problem. If you can-Take the wheels off and inspect the abs sensors. I have seen wires broken--dirt build up--to rusty tone wheels. What you have is a Reed senor that reads a tone wheel that rotates. If the sensor has failed(cable-pulled out) or if anything is in the way --it cant reed the tone wheel--thus the ABS light. Good Luck

  7. Please--Please check the fuel lines that run behind the engine to the fuel rail. So far this year here in Florida about 1 TC a month is burning to the ground. Leaking gas at pressure onto a 1200-2500 degree turbo housing--you see smoke and raise the hood.adding o2 and---burn baby burn.

  8. 93 Allante-----

    Good---no more vent window Northstar power

    Bad-Very Bad----No more Reccaro Seats Old Man Eldorado Sliders

    That also is the the gen 1 Northstar--better to find a newer updated motor than try and do the updates to a gen 1.
