I just put that cargo mat I got fro you outside in the sun to let it uncurl. I can smell dryer sheets in my yard. I don't use them so it isn't from my house. That's a lot of dryer sheets!

Ripped into the center dash today. Lots of weird ****ty wiring that confuses me. 740 turbo ECU, wonder if my 780 Bertone ECU is better? The thing I'm mostly concerned about is that it seems to be stuck on recirc. It looks like the recirc button is missing at least one vacuum hose which is nowhere to be seen. Anyone know where it connects? Has a vac leak somewhere since pushing the buttons does nothing with the car off.

Put it up in the air and recorded that. Wiggled the wheels, passenger side has slight clunkiness wiggling the top and bottom of the wheel.

Yeah but I think it has a boost controller. Can it handle higher PSI with a manual boost controller or anything?

Keep in mind that this steering issue started a few days ago. Before that it was perfectly fine. Absolutely no idea what it is.

Took the carpets out and I've been getting it super clean. It has basically no rust in the floor compared to the 86 but it does have a repaired floorboard.



Vs this in the 86:



Also I found more dryer sheets under the carpet.

There are two J looking longish but very skinny pipes on each side of the center console that those three vacuum operated buttons plug into. If one of the two J's doesn't have a vac line on it you won't have any button functionality.

Foot and defrost buttons work fine. I think recirc is stuck on. Where is the recirculate valve or whatever?

Anyone got a diagram? I'm having a pretty hard time with the recirculate problem.. The only thing I've done in the last few days is some rust treatment.

Progress has been very slow. Today I got the front carpet back in and swapped the broken B pillar plastics for the near pristine ones from the 86. Also tried to start it since it's been awhile, no go. Can hear the fuel pump but it won't fire. I'll have to look into that later. Main issue right now is the coil that came off its seat, I'll rent some comrpessors and swap the springs with the 86 and sell that to someone who thinks low=cool.

It was a bad fuel pump relay. Runs again, hopefully I'll get the spring issue and the interior back together by the end of the long weekend. Is it normal for the car to spin the wheels in the air when in neutral?

How can you be sure it's in neutral with that shifter? haha

Vibrations from the engine would be my guess.

Heh. Definitely not vibrations. I can stop the tire with my foot, but it takes some effort.

Just now I got the rear section of the carpet back in and some of the interior trim. Stole some more interior bits from the 86. It's all coming back together now.
