maybe lubricate the throttle cable, could be binding causing a high idle. just a thought.

After I swapped in the new one and noticed no difference of the course of the first two days, I once again checked all the cables, they are all slightly loose and seem to move freely. I may lube them up any way. What the best stuff to use on the throttle cables?

I have half a dozen of them sitting around. I had bought one from Phil, the one year only later style matching tach. I don't have any reason to pay another hundred dollars for one for this car. I have already drop over 4K into this thing, and it still has a little bit of a way to go before it's tip top. Eventually when the car earns its strips, then maybe, haha!

Default Crappy Cell Pics of Sky High 245

Did the front suspension a couple months ago, just finished it over with KYB heavy duties in the rear with IPD overload springs! This thing is set up for hauling now! I think I may take Chris's reinforcement plates off he front to drop the front end a bit! Although I am not going for sporty with this car, the front end is a little awkward! Not even sure what the benefit is to having the reinforcement plates up front of this thing!

Did not know you already had the tach but it adds up quickly and more so when you pay someone else to do the work. I Orlando now and NJ Tuesday and no time to work. LOL. What happened to the Polaris?

The Polaris are on Old iron! Ohh ya! It adds up mighty fast! This is a car we don't truly need at all, and I have put so much money into it! We will drive it and get out money out of it through pure use!

Just not a big priority since this travel work need to be done and a lot rush to get it done and miss stuff. I know I have. Could have had it running weeks ago but the extra cost time. Now might even change directions with it. Got some Virgo that need redoing as well but no time for that now.

Stock style KYB struts and springs in the front. With Chris's (15A's) upper strut reinforcement plate!

IPD overload springs with KYB heavy duty struts in the back.


I really, really don't understand why it's so high, I had my Volvo Master Tech do the front suspension a couple months ago, I just did the rear suspension last week! Wish I had an answer, maybe he knows!

Jack it up, let dem wheels sag, tape measure to the rescue. Count coils or take pics or something.

Reminds me of the Crown Vics you'll see downtown around here
