What Have You Done to your Soobie lately? (Please post in here and keep it going)

Recommended Posts

Increasing the timing has helped a lot in driveability. Low end torque has increased. Dieseling has not decreased. 

 

 

Something that has helped to fight dieseling, is to do a Cleanup of the internals,

 

pouring a Seafoam Can to the intake manifold, via vacuum hose.

 

 

 

 

Kind Regards.

I am surprised that these carbs can function while being so hot. If my holleys and edelbrocks ever got this hot the fuel would boil over right quick. 

 

When I had a Weber on my old EA82, it would diesel some after it was fully warmed up or shutting down after running on the interstate for a while. Most of the time it was during the summer months where the air temps were consistently above 80*.

I ran close to 20* in timing in mine, too.

Mileage was 25-27 when I kept my foot out of it. If I was running WOT all the time, it would drop easily into the low 20s.

Since the passenger  wiper blew off my Loyale Sat during an Indiana downpour on SR 25, I stopped at O'Reilly's in Wabash. Replaced them as a pair and threw the driver side one in the trunk as a spare.

My gl decided to get a bit of a make over by catching on fire. It now rests wherever mac towing took it.

Wow. ... Pics?

 

Mine tried twice to burn itself down. Had to rip out one flaming alternator and on another occasion rip out the battery to keep some wires shorting

If purchasing a friend for my wagon counts, then I've done something. Bought a 1983 1600cc leone sedan (glf-5). Its in alright condition, a bit rough but no rust  so that's good.

Fixed my alternator, maxima alternator was sitting loose. Couple washers took care of that. Oil change with a quart of Lucas oil treatment and gear oil change in the trans with another quart of Lucas as well. Gear oil was still relatively clean but lots of bits of metal on the drain plug again. :-\ the 5 speed is still working despite the racket it makes though.

 

Looking forward to meeting mr Loyale tonight as he iscurrently  making his way down from Maine. Can't wait to see his Loyale and the chromed out motor in it!

Its a green, Sea mist green according to the colour label. Its NZ new i believe so possibly painted here?  Found that the whole passenger side footwell was very wet so pulled the seats/carpet worried about it being rusted on the inside, turns out to be fine. So now going to clean what little surface rust is there and possibly spray/ paint a floor liner while all the carpets off?

Replaced a flaky injector in Wedge. It was driving me mad: When cold, it was fine. Once it was halfway warmed up, I'd loose a cylinder. But if I continue to drive it, it would clear up after fully warmed up for 10 miles or so. So weird. But, it's solved now. :banana:

Passenger side front axle outer boot ruptured so I decided to replace the whole axle since it had been in there for several years and I suspected it to be the remaining source of the front end noise.  Replacing it  finally got rid of all that annoying noise. All smooth running and quiet now. 

 

Turned out the shop that did the axle last time had put in the wrong axle type !

After putting on 6,570 miles in the month of August, I changed the oil and filter (using synthetic). We will see how many miles the trurn trip takes.

Got to cracking on trying to nail down my girlfriend's Loyales intermittent non start conditions. Put in a new, remanufactured starter from autozone (found an etching on the old one from whomever must have installed it. Initialed with the date 7/11/03), cleaned up all connections, ground, 12v, replaced the connector that attaches to the 1/4" spade terminal as it was loose. Car still wouldn't start with electrical accessories on. Swapped batteries with my GL and seems to be okay for now. Only time will tell.

 

Also replaced the shoes and shoe springs on the rear and repacked the bearings with fresh grease.

I finished my valve adjustment.. Took my a little longer since I wanted to clean the covers before reinstall.  I double checked each one after adjustment so they should be spot on.  I have got to figure out why I have lifter noise on one side.. It's gonna drive me crazy.  I had it before valve adjustment and still have it..  I did find one intake a little loose and one exhaust was too tight (same area the noise is coming from).  Wonder if it will resolve itself with a little driving?

I guess I will ask in the regular forum.
