    I didn't see the reply about the G10 at first, I think I was already typing my last reply at that point. Definitely want to check that out.

    M5 trans appeared for 88...before that it was a choice of a couple Mitsubishi units and a 4 or 5 speed Toyo Kogyo (which is also Mazda...but is distinct from the M5 series). I have the TK5.

    It has come to my attention that the anteater is actually named Antsy, because it is the miniature Happy Meal version.
    It was in circulation in 1998. I sort of feel bad for opening the package now,...

    No, there is an air gap at the spot required for that retainer. Also, it is a retainer that snaps directly into the door metal, rather than on a riveted bracket, so there's really not much I can do...

    Somehow, the bi-metal flasher in this car is perfectly satisfied by just the one incandescent 1157 up front. The Ranger is the same way. I, too, like the soft click-ping.

    I actually have no interest in changing the gearing, it's pretty well perfect. Truck is pretty quick. It's also just on the edge of tolerable for highway NVH, and I have no interest in making it rev...

    The voltage leak is from the ECM. It is outputting 8V on the Brake On/Off line, which I always believed was just an input to the computer rather than an output, but now I am unsure. It's a 93 EEC-IV...
