Yo' Deez, don't f**k the messenger, and maybe it's just a design difference between the two, butt you've got the oil cooler's stone guard on upside down compared to the original one on my 1987 - the slats on yours appear to face up and on mine they face down.

Ha! It wouldn't surprise me at this point.
But it just looks that way because the photo is from the ground pointing up and the angle is parallel with the slats.

Man, that is a bizarre optical illusion!

Really nice looking suspension work, BTW (***forum buttsnorkling***).

Thanks. The car did not handle well. I needed to get this done before the power up grades. I think I'm two weeks away from alignment and back on the road.

A fresh angle just because you used "buttsnorkleing"
I wouldn't want you to loose any sleep over it.

Yep. Screwed my plans for today. So I finished the lower and installed the ball joints.



Now I have been installing bearing races and rotors. I put some high temp anti seize between the rotor/hub and rotor/ring due to the amount of corrosion there before.

79 #610 Winter Projects. Advise Needed

Question. I seem to be missing a spacer. Item 15/1 in the picture. It does not show up in the 79-83 PET but is shown in the 76-77 Turbo PET. I had one on the right but was missing on the left side.
Does anyone know if these are on all Turbo cars due to the extra shim on the bushing mount bracket? Or were they 75-77 only and someone installed It by mistake??

Well it's in the 79 Turbo Supplement Shop Manual. # 45 Spacer. So it must be a 930 only part.

While waiting for new struts I went back to electrical repairs. I finished plumbing and remounting the headlight washer pump.
I took the clock apart and installed new capacitors so it will hold time when the car is off.
I took the speedo apart to order a new gear.
And I installed a Odyssey PC925 so I can ditch the motorhome battery. I have the PC680 in my Mustang and the reserve capacity sucks. I have to put it on the battery maintainer if the car is going to be parked for more than three days. The PC925 has a little more than double the reserve and is still less than half the weight of a standard battery. The best part is the aluminum mount slid right into the factory mount and the there was a threaded insert exactly where I needed it. So no drilling of the tray was needed. I just need to make a ground a couple inches longer.

That spacer is on my 88 turbo and very necessary. Way too much play without it and you cannot just omit and tighten down

I'm searching for someone in the Northern CA area to do the corner balance and alignment when done. Any leads?

There was another Pelican from Granit Bay that sent me a PM a while ago and I accidentally deleted it. I was going to call and see if you know of someone.
Please PM me your info again.

I know... "Forum Hook-Up"

Well that took longer than expected. One of the two tiny clips that hold the gears on slipped and went flying across the garage. All I could think was "Oh God" I'll never find that. It took about 20 min to find it. Speedo is back together.

There was a little issue with the two right struts. There are no 19mm raised spindle left struts available right now and no eta.
The first thought was to get some from Elephant. But I wanted Steve at Rensport Systems custom valving more than the perfect drop. Steve agreed seeing it's not a track car. He had two stock valved 12mm raised struts in stock. So he shipped those out and I swapped the inserts tonight. That was simple. Getting the spacer the seal rides on off the old struts took time. I cleaned and sanded the old dust covers. I still need to paint them.

Do people not running coil overs on RSR struts paint the threads too?

And does the brake line and hose just float with the missing bracket?

Swapping Parts




This should work better
