  1. I have found there are all sorts of hydraulic brake accumulators that can still be had (except for our TCs ) I'm not very knowledgeable on how that all works, but it would seem to me that the principles should be the same and one should be able to use one from another vehicle... If it's a matter of matching up threads, adapters could be machined. Please educate me guys, what makes the TC accumulator the ONLY kind that can be used....has anyone ever attempted a swap..??
  2. Time to say good bye to my 1st TC. Pump motor on the Teves brake system is froze up. Don't know how hard that would be to replace, but more importantly it's probably not worth replacing since there are probably other components ready to go as well. Don't know what the cost or time investment would be to replace it and do a booster brake swap, but more importantly don't know that I have the time, or energy or do a swap out . So I'm going to get rid of the ol girl. Runs great, think it has about 170k miles (odometer not working since I got it.) The body is really solid, a couple of quarter size or smaller spots or rust under the paint. Interior is really clean, upgraded stereo but I still have the original. Don't really have time to start pulling pieces and parts off, would like to sell it as is. Would like to get around $1k....maybe I'm dreaming. If anyone is interested let me know and I can send more pics. Thanks guys.
  3. Hemi Dude......did you sneak into my pole barn and take a picture of my car..?!?! Pretty much looks like that. The fuse that goes there got warm but didn't blow.
  4. You should be able to get either at Autozone. I just got one for the driver's side on my 89'
  5. Yes I have the manual. I've been busy chopping wood for the upcoming winter here in Michigan so I haven't been able to be on here much this week. :D Not sure what you mean but let me look at the manual this weekend, if I have questions I'll PM you. Thanks guys
  6. So I got some time to work on the cars this weekend. On the 89 both 30amp fuses were blown. I replaced them but when I turn on the key, the pump for the brakes doesn't even run. I unplugged/plugged all three relays in with still no luck. Double checked the fuses and they are good. At this point I'm kind of stumped on why it seems I'm getting no power to the pump. Ideas?
  7. So the close up is looking at the joint near the bottom of the riser. Should that be a solid connection?? I can move the accumulator and this connection is not solid. I'm probably going to update both car's brake system, but now curiosity has gotten the better of me and I'd like to at least know WHY these don't work.
  8. yes,,, from the stock Teves system.... thanks :D
  9. So we finally got the house done and moved in Dec of 2016, Spent last summer building the pole barn, got the car in around Sept of last year and gave them a thorough cleaning. The 89 had a seized passenger front caliper but everything else worked fine, the 90 was all peaches and cream Finally got the honey-do list to a manageable point last month and decided to take the car up for a warm-up run on the 1/2 mile run of our road. The 90 also no had a seized passenger caliper, and by the time I took the short run with about 2 braking executions...the pedal went hard on me. Same issue with the 89. ? Yesterday I did some preliminary trouble shooting: The 89 - passenger side fuse under the hood is good. Pump runs then stops, still hard brake pedal the 90 - fuse blown - I replaced it, seems like the pedal is still hard, I didn't want to do any driving with the caliper in its current state so I will be replacing on both cars. My question is.... would a seized caliper contribute/cause the hard brake pedal? If I decide to convert these two to ABS systems, does anyone have a current-day ball park price on parts? As always guys, TIA MB
  10. Might be interested....I have two TCs that just went hard-pedal on me... :( Trying to get myself educated on the causes/fixes . One had a blown fuse, the the other was fine....so it looks like two battles?!?! lol PM me with details on what you are looking for $$ :D thanks MB
  11. IT WORKS!! Found a replacement dash for cheap. The odometer gear was broken so while swapping out the good gear from my original speedo, I swapped out the odometer as well so my car still has the original odometer and correct miles thanks for the help Digger914 with the leads for junkyards with parts!!
