  1. Thanks Hemi, I hope you've been well, in our state over twenty years is not required, but I also dont want to be adding pollutants to the environment knowingly. Any suggestions on a replacement? I will check Rock Auto.
  2. Hi Gang, For the past couple years my catalytic converter has always rattled a little especially at start up and more so when the engines cold, It's been getting a little worse lately. My brother is suggesting to cut it out and just go with a straight pipe splice. can anyone tell me why I shouldn't do that? Thanks
  3. Thanks Reaper, I'm sorry, sort of jumping threads here, in the other thread "Strange Things" I was complaining about the car running "slightly off" and the tach jumping around. You suggested that it might be the TPS which I replaced but still off and on erratic. Hemi suggested the HEP ( Hall effect plate) that I replaced (with a STANDARD) along with a new Blue streak cap and STANDARD rotor with new plug wires from Rick Diego while I'm in that area. So my car was running, just acting funny, not it's usual smooth self. But now it wont start at all, I just ordered a Duralast CR121 HEP
  4. EBAY has one manufactured or distributed by Formula Auto Parts PUC20, any thoughts?
  5. Now my car wont start, I suspect I have the same issue with the NFG STANDARD hall effect plate as No1parfive, can anyone tell me where to source a good Hall effect assembly, I looked at Delphi Brand web site they have nothing listed. I guess I'm doing this twice.
  6. was standard the good replacement or the one that failed?
  7. Hard time interpreting I just bought a Standard rotor, hall effect plate and bluestreak cap, are these OK? cables from Rick D, tomorrows mission, I dont want to do this twice. Please advise
  8. I'll get under it and take a look around this weekend also I remember seeing a vacuum line probably going to that bypass valve that was sandwiched between two other hoses that might need some correcting, thanks
  9. I believe I did disconnect one hose ( maybe 1") that went to the bottom of that valve, but I'm sure I reconnected it, I moved it to get a little more access to the larger 3" lower radiator hose. could I have damaged or disconnected something by accident? THX
  10. Hi Hemi, Sorry for slow responce, internet went down again last night and today Dash slider seems to make no difference, except making me really hot driving around with the heaheat on when it's 95 degrees out. running half way to three quarter mark, has always run cool, the fan is coming on, maybe hook up a temp gauge in the engine compartment, where? The tach is back to jumping around and the engine is back to rumbling and popping slightly off. My next target is the hall effect plate you mentioned but how would that effect the engine temp? Thx
  11. Sorry for the no response recently, no power internet or cell service for the past six days, put in the new TPS yesterday, filled with coolant took her out for a test, drove a quarter mile sounds smooth, tach not jumping but then noticed the temp gauge at 3/4. back to the driveway and let her cool down a bit added more coolant with the bleeder valve on the thermostat open while idling till coolant comes out of the bleeder as per the manual. As it was idling tach was about 8k rpms, where it typically is and idling smoothly. Drive #2 now temp is jumping around when not jumping at the h
  12. Thanks for the heads up, these look identical, what a PITA to get the old one out, wound up removing the radiator and yes I was careful with the vacuum lines.
  13. Very nice job, thank you.
  14. I should have looked before I asked, Rock auto offers 1, does it look like this might fit?
  15. Thanks Hemi, No "Federal Case" involved, I always welcome your advice and respect your many years of expertise. Where would I source a new Hall effect pickup assembly?
