    If you remove your tank; you might have to put new strap studs back in. That's what happened when I replaced my tank. When I went to wrap the straps around; they wouldn't match up to the original...

    Whale Seats

    I have been giving some serious thought on swapping out the bench seat for buckets. Thinking of finding Whale seats as there are far more of them in the junkyard than aeros and less-so boxes. I...

    I changed mine only after procrastinating after getting all of the parts. Then the 2G died and had no choice. Such an easy swap; so much so that I did it to my Ranger a month afterwards.

    How does one lube the cable? I'm very close to reinstalling my VSS and have the cable disconnected at the AOD end. Mine was squeaking up a storm last time I drove the CV.

    Since I swapped the plugs and coils, the MGM runs smoother (understandably) and quieter; especially on the highway. Can't figure that out, but don't care either. Before I put it all back together,...

    I would find out after yanking the lopo years later, that the idler arm was rattling around. That might have been the problem. I'll find out if anything changed when I get the car running again.

    Probably need to retrofit the plastic visors; as they typically drop down further than the metal visors.

    I don't remember if my CV has them or not. The car has been tarp'd for over 3 years. :-/
