Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Hi Val,

Engine looks great.

I'm in the process of rebuilding the M30 with upgrades after
blowing the head gasket @ Watkins Glen. I also had the big stuff
powder coated. I'm doing the small stuff in my little oven.

I'll post photos of some stuff when I can.

Re: Radio removal?

If you have this style radio mount, try pulling the outer rectangle frame around radio off.

Then you'll need a removal tool that will slide on both sides to release the tabs holding the radio.

here are some styles of tools

Re: 1981 Oxygen Sensor

I'm also installing Ireland headers on my 86. My research came up with installing an x crossover pipe. CO bung can be welded into the x, getting exhaust from both headers and an x pipe helps scavenge the exhaust. https://www.jegs.com/i/Jones-Exhaust/523/SXP2SS/10002/-1 https://www.autoanything.com/e...

Re: Been watching the auctions - this really bugs me!

Would you want to exert that much pressure on your back stooped that low on

a large number of cars?

I don't think a dent could happen even if they punched the trunk.

However, it would show some respect to the owners if at least they wore gloves.

Re: Starts, runs 30 sec, idles very rough and dies

Has anyone removed the 7th injector? It look impossible to get at. Its still original and it occurred to me if its leaking, it would idle ok when it first starts and needs gas but would be too rich as it ran for a while which is exactly what it doing. Yes, very difficult to get that out. IIRC I chi...
