quick, what do I grab from an 83 wagon?!

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody,

 

So today I heard that somebody was going to scrap their 83 wagon. Luckily, they decided that they would let me take anything I wanted off of the car, in return for transporting it to the yard for them. It's rusted really bad, has no windshield or rear glass, and it's got a bad fuel pump. I got it to run for a bit and the engine is in good shape (129,000miles). I already pulled the engine out, and grabbed the radiator, battery, driveshaft, headlights, and some trim pieces. What else should I take off of this car before towing it to the yard?

EVERYTHING YOU CAN. If it's free, why not? Never know when you or someone else will need it.

Electrical items

 

1. Fuel pump control unit

2. Turn signal Flasher, 83 and later EA81 dose not use a generic unit. Whole sale at a dealer is still almost $100 for one. Most parts stores can't get them.

3. Blower motor, the resister packs aren't easy to find.

4. If it has A/C get the second radiator fan.

5. Relays and pigtails, A good stock pile of 22amp relays is nice to have.

 

If the drivers seat is in good shape, grab it.

Get the y-pipe too

An extra hill holder is a good thing to have too.
