    System is always pressurized. Do not remove the hoses unless you've had the refrigerant recovered from the system. Most shops can handle the recovery aspect if you're not comfortable doing that....

    Thanks y'all for confirming on that.

    Now I see there's plenty of options out there. Obviously I'm not gonna shoot for some eBay special to figure out how quick it doesn't work.

    So one thing I have noticed about V6 3G units is they run a larger pulley than the V8 cars. I’m considering swapping mine out to a smaller one on the ‘87 due to only semi-adequate output with a lot...

    I wonder if a similar regulator was used on large case 3.8 Essex alternators too (aimed towards folks with the 1Gs). I only say that since I installed a 3G (spec'd for a 3.8 Sable) on a late 80s...

    Gotta wonder if that shrouding was a cold weather option. I think the portion where its fully open is where the transmission cooler would usually sit on an equipped car, so it would make sense to...

    Was that the top in 3rd? If you hold the car at WOT, the AOD won't shift into OD. Unplugging anything from the VSS isn't gonna affect much since the transmission is totally hydraulic.

    So Nick's buddy says the sun shell is the failure point. Reading around online seems to back that up as sun shell failure will result in reverse, 2nd, and OD failing in the AOD/AOD-E and 4R70W family...

    Not what I want to hear, but I figured something went very wrong all at once. I could also argue the AOD holds back the car the way it is right now, and maybe a manual swap might be worth...

    So I've seen early style air dams that mount on the bumper (?), but I haven't seen the one that mounts on the radiator support.

    Are those painted bezels a 1987 only thing? I ask since that one has a E7 part number on the box, while the one above has a D9 part number. I see a lot of the fully chrome ones, but not so much the...

    Yeah, they're definitely hard to come by. Wagons are uncommon at junkyards as it goes, so trying to get a wagon and the deflector result in really low odds. :(

    Last I checked, the factory amp is gone from where all reports say it should be in a wagon. Will that be an issue or would it be smart to source a amp for the system?
