  1. Nah, I'm good; thanks anyway. Thanks for your money, too; I look forward to receiving more of it in the near future
  2. aaaaaand I'm good. Found a vintage review of an '83 Ski Team wagon on Youtube that kind of showed me what I wanted; then I found this video that put my mind at ease: https://youtu.be/uKveH1b156k?t=23
  3. Hi all, I'm resuming production of the stickers I used to sell on eBay and I'm basically re-doing all of the designs from scratch, for best accuracy when scaled up on other products I have in mind. One of the stickers that sold best was the "Wagon 4WD" badge - pictured in this post. Many of the original EA81 wagon badges I've seen have remnants of white paint outlining the "4WD" but I've never seen an original badge still with its paint. I'm finding that it's a little too specific to be able to search for easily online, including here I'd be grateful if someone can share a photo of an EA81 wagon - the older the photo the better - showing one of these badges in like-new condition. I'd find it reassuring for authenticity's sake, and if it's a photo to which you have the rights, maybe we can work something out for me to use it for promotional purposes? In the photo I've got here is a badge in modern-day condition, showing faded red paint and traces of white paint after countless hours of UV exposures and at least 4 carwashes in its lifetime, along with the re-worked version of the sticker I previously produced (white insets above & below 4WD), and a more authentic version I plan to produce (insets lacking white paint). I just want to see it to believe it. Thanks! Andy

    Hey, maybe this can yield you a gas tank for "my" old turbo coupe!

    Prevent theft

    Kill switch for the fuel pump AND the ECU. Powered by the same relay in some cars... or a kill switch for the main fusible link (better know what you're doing, though)

    What to do with my '92 Loyale...

    Ronjon, if you're planning to lift the car, you might consider doing that before or during the engine swap - otherwise you'll have to reconfigure the radiator hoses, wiring clearance, heater hoses, pitch stopper, and exhaust ... all twice. PS I'm selling a lift kit
  8. If the car came with A/C which was simply not carried over during the engine swap: You should be able to do this with the EJ22 compressor; you'll need both sets of lines. Have a hydraulic supply shop make you a set of hybrid lines using your original fittings, or by using them to match the threads, etc for new fittings. You'll probably use most of the original EA82 lines and just change the engine-side ends to meet the compressor at the right angles. You should be able to adapt the wiring to activate the EJ A/C compressor clutch with the original EA controls. If the car didn't come with A/C then you'd have to swap in A LOT of stuff from an A/C car to do this. More than it's worth IMO.

    Sad news to report

    I most recently saw Ed when I sold a piece of furniture via Craigslist to a woman.. who showed up being driven by Ed! I noticed it was him while he was finishing something said to her, so I walked up and pretended to introduce myself as he saw me, and then we had a little laugh. I'll miss his good humor, expertise, and generosity.

    This might help too: http://www.indysworld.com/80s/general/USRM/mick-usrm/lsd-swap/lsdswap.html from the older USRM. If you have a problem with your project, posting photos of what you're working on can help a lot. Host them at imgur or imageshack or something if you don't have personal hosting. Keep in mind that when you "don't want to take the time to search" that you're asking others to take the time to search or type for you. If you search and post the terms you used to search, that can help us help you be a better searcher. It's hard sometimes because the search function doesn't recognize search terms of 3 characters or less... including LSD. Look for alternates like diff, differential, limited slip, swap, etc. And thank you for remaining polite when you were not treated politely.

    Me three... wow, B. I'll get ahold of you when I can make it down to Oly!
  14. Hey Ed, my number's still the same, thanks!
  15. Hit her up anyway; maybe she'll realize she's on the wrong coast, or send a camera crew over here!
