overKILL's selling STATUS,...

Well, as we know already the guy from Ohio is "I'm going to think about it some more". Which means he doesn't want the car. I called the guy back that called me that very same day asking about the car and he was not there. I think I will call him back today. Some other guy just called about the car for a friend. He said his friend is eyeballing two cars right now. Mine and this 86 NA with like 42,000 something thousand miles on it in good condition for 5,700. He said our cars look to be in the same condition. He said if the price is right he will buy the car that day. I told him everything about the car and he was ok with it. He didnt like tha fact that I didn't have all my receipts. Should of kept them!!! DAMN! Lesson learned. Anyways, he said his friend is real busy guy and that he is super serious. His friend will give me a call. We'll see what happens. I will be willing to go down on the price as far as $6,000 just to get rid of this car.

Hi Overkill. We had talked via email about a month ago. I
was the guy that is 600 miles away. Currently I am away on vacation, so my phone #'s mean nothing. What is your VIN#? How long ago was the timing belt changed? How are the brakes?
He is going to call me tuesday. Lets see what happens,...

Don't get anxious. I know it's hard not too, but it will come across to the buyer and possibly scare him away or have him trying to knock your price down too much. By the way, I had the other thread deleted! Good luck!

I have a guy from Maine coming to basically get the car. He said that if he was to come, it would not be to see the car but to buy the car. I might have to meet him 30 miles up there which isn't to bad. We agreed on $6,300 for the car. He said somthing about fedxing the money order? Don't think so,... cash or moeny order up front. Will email him explaining that. Also, I just found out that my AC is blowing warm air. It was 70 out that day I found out. What are the chances of it being because of somthing other than no freeon?

Quickest way to find out is to jump the pressure switch connections together.

by the pressure switch there is a 'sight glass' in top of the dryer to watch the gas/lube oil...when the compressor kicks in you'll see the stuff in the glass moving...little tiny bubbles can make it look milky & can mean the 'charge' is low

don't bypass the switch for very long or you can damage the compressor

"This guy is renting a car for one way use and is going to drive 9 hours to the Philly airport to drop it off, Then I guess he is going to catch a cab and then take a 42 minute trip to my house where he is going to meet me and see the car. Can you believe this guy?!?!? He REALLY wants this car!!!"

True Dude, I am not familar with testing the AC. So at this point I am not going to "play" with it seeing that I might break it

o'kill,

Take a 20 or 30 amp spade fuse (gm style) and plug the wires from the switch into the fuse. The compressor will now engage and allow you to make some checks. If you now have cool air, then get a cheapo guage set @ napa and check the suction(low) pressure and the heat (high) pressure. The suction side should be 35 +- 2 and high side 190 +-40 (depends on ambient temp). Now return the guage and set tell them the suction guage didn't work and had to use a friends set. (please use the parts store that poked you on the starter)

If the suction is ok the press. switch is bad. (do not replace) just keep the fuse in position and alert buyer that the switch needs replacement and to due so @ an a/c shop as the system will need to be vacuumed down then charged.

To some people (like me) the A/C is minor... I know it depends on the person and where they live...
good advice FLA944, although could turn into a PITA compared to knocking $100 off IF the buyer fusses over the A/C. Depends on how much time O'kill wants to spend on it. my $.02

Well I don't want to spend,... any time on it nor any money He knows about it and he didn't make a big fuss over it. AC is not a big deal. It was working last year and I heard that if you let it sit to long without using it that it will leak out. Oh well.
