Is that a factory part? Excuse my blatant lack of searching. My ex 90 940 wagon had a wiggly brace across but not forward.

Nope. Cherry Turbo aftermarket brace.

Yup, what quillc said.

Car is still being driven pretty much daily. Lots of updates since the last actual update, but not a lot of things to update since the last update saying that I will have a large update soon.

How's the ride on the Bilstein? I'll follow your way since I like the stance of it.

EDIT: Any spare wheels for sale as well? Haha

I had almost the same set up on my old 744T and I really liked the ride. On the 945T, it's still pretty good, but I have other bushing and driveline issues that make the ride not quite as good.

I may have some wheels for sale later.

Easier to service? I dunno. Came that way for me, but I'm not sure if that was stock.

The '95s also only have the in-tank pump and no inline one. I'm sure there were tweaks here and there too as it was an oddball year, but I can't recall much more right now.

Any year 7/9 came stock head mounted. My '95 is. So someone must have done the swap on yours. I wish mine was block mounted. Don't have to worry about it leaking. At least with a plug back there you can get that plate to hold it in.

The '95 that donated its organ to my 245 was head mounted.

Some Regina cars had block mount dizzys.

The seven series before the B230 were also block mounted, I believe.

I'm pretty sure Kardboard's was swapped.

Another advantage to the block mount: more choices of camshaft (I suspect this is why his was swapped).

Pretty sure that was the case. Athal was running some sort of prototype cam at one point before I owned it.

Yup that's it, played with cams. Also the cheaper Cap and rotor and had a nice set of wires off my 242 project.

I wouldn't go as far as saying Regina was block mounted, my '91 744 was a head mounted Regina car.

Did you have to swap in an intermediate shaft from a 240 or was it already there? I'd like to do this mod to mine at one point.

Whoa, Athal outta nowhere. What's up, man? Should bug you for a rundown on the history of the car, eventually. Would be fun to know.

Always lurking buddy. Someone has to keep an eye on you fools. Plus I still get lulz from tbot. Too bad you moved so you don't get a peek at my latest wagon- any time you want a Darth history recap, or dad tips, let me know!

Had to do a swap. Pop th dizzy plug to check yours I've heard occasionally a geared intermediate shaft made it into the later engines.

Heh, I knew I'd be called out on something. I'll edit my statement to some Regina cars. The theory is they were using up 240 parts at the time.

I did not have gears cut on my '95. It got a B21FT shaft, IIRC. But you might get lucky.

Will have to set that up sometime. Just waiting for the little Turbobricker to arrive now (any day!).

And I'll update my threads here. Eventually. And start a new one for the new car.

Thumbs up So I kinda bought this wagon now...

Bought this car. Been sitting for a while just ordered new tires. Replaced a failed bracket on the power steering. I’m in need of a driver side turn signal lens. Located a 3” stainless exhaust for parts to start the salvage of the exhaust since the muffler fell off.
