I am thinking about selling the 89 as is for some young kid to buy. I will put it on CL and see what I can get for it.
Today did the following to Silvy-
-Installed the Retro radio from the 89 solder, heat shrink tubing and all. -Pexed the door strikers -Tore the column apart and fixed the loose bolts. the plastic piece that pushes against the high beam rod is fuggin missing. -Swapped some of the new parking light lenses from the 89 -Pulled the wind shade vents off the 89 and will install on Silvy -Swapped the red bug deflector over to Silvy -Jim was right the spare wheel tub had a puddle of water in it, I cleaned it out and drilled a small hole so it will stay dry, no rust in there though.
Heading out to take a boat and Silvy ride....I really am falling in love with this thing.
I was just pouring over the pics of the engine bay, I do believe somebody did a Big 3 add on at least for the red power cables. I see that alternator, firewall block and battery all cabled together and with the 105 amp alternator you should hear that thing whine when it charges, sounds like Knight Rider. That alternator looks recently replaced too. So far it has been showing a charge up to 14 volts +/- and no drain under 13 volts at all.
So on the way in to work this morning in the rain I see the intermittent wipers do not work. Just runs on low speed sweep in any position on the delay and will run on high speed sweep on high. Also the blades will not self park, you have to bump them and park them manually with the switch. The park switch is built into the wiper motor. BUt the delay missing would that be the module? Looking at the wire diagram I see the module grounds to that bus bar ground under the dash so I can check that. Or could it be the stalk?
Well the first little gremlins on the new Burb showed up last night. Left work and walked out to the Burb. Cranked it over and it popped and stuttered and shut off. I tried again and it just cranked. Fuck. So I hit the go pedal because I had a hair on my neck telling me it may be flooded. Fired up and I had to keep it revved to blow out the extra fuel, black smoke out the pipe. It then ran fine the rest of the night and this morning. After I got it started I popped the hood to look under the air cleaner lid and all seemed fine.
So I shut the hood and did a walk around and now I see antifreeze pouring down from the pass front behind the wheel. I pop the hood back open and the anti freeze was running from the heater core/hose, very hard to tell exactly. I freaked out and looked in the pass side of the cab and pulled the carpet up and didn't see any leak in there. So I hurry up and drove home and got a tool to tighten the hose clamps and thank god that was the problem. I was hoping it wasn't the heater core.
