  1. Fixing up 1983 "WOODY" HAVE COUPLE QUESTONS.. BEST PLACE (OR CAN I BUY?) a Woody TRIM Kit.. Wood is not in good shape,, trim/molding around wood is ok needs paint but afraid I may break a piece of mold while removing and installing new wood panel. passenger side window motor does not work, checked fuses, their ok,,, still woking on this as it may be connection or switch related but are new motors avaiable if so from who ?? next and the hard one.. trip milage computor does not work or light up.. also do not see indicator for heat or chargeing system when I turn on key... Suggestions on these where are fuses/ fuse links... bulbs (still looking) purchased Haynes Automotive Book from Advance Auto but not much help in this area. puchased this 83 woody and an 84 woody bout 18 months ago,, fixed up 84, rebuilt trans, new tires, struts, springs body was and is in great shape (gets 30mpg) 83 now going to take a little more work on body and in the interior.. but the motor and trans is in great shape. both cars set for around 15 years before I purchased last year. 84 now my daily driver. Thanks for any suggestions or advise
  2. 1984 2.6 LaBaron has "coffee shop Syndrome" when I stop for just a few minutes then restart engine it sputters as if its running out of gas then after couple min is OK. Older (1985) Toyota Supra I own does same thing when Oxygen Analyzer is bad. Bought one for LaBaron but Special Socket I purchased with new analyzer will not fit in hole provided around shield... is there a better method then removing shield... another special tool??? realy not looking forward to removing shield as its been on a long time, heated/cooled some rusty bolts so may twist one or two off... Thanks for any suggestions/Advise
