      not sure I agree with your math... the temp rating of the thermostat is simply when it should fully open. If it's hot out (100) and your car is making a lot of heat and raising the temp of coolant, it will be fully open by 180 in either case...

      He didn't emphasize the racing, but it is on his car icon at the bottom of each post.:D It does say "sometimes" runs it hard, which does imply a fair amount of street use, even with that WRX in the stable. I would think that having to keep an eye...

      Ultimately the thermostat can only open all the way. If you're running it hard, that will happen whether it's 185 or 160 rated. In fact, the coolant temp is likely to be higher than either of these setpoints. Using it for road racing, I would...

      My first start was in 1994 when i got my first dsm 1ga red, from the dealership i worked at. I had it for years did my first timing job when i broke when i was attending Indiana University, since the i learned the car inside and out, not fun...

      Fun post. I was hooked on cars from an early age, and can still recall the feeling noticing how different Corvettes were from all the other cars. Read every back issue of Road and Track I could find. I never had tools growing up, and watched both...

      Here's me as a kid, says it all. It was taken on one of those disposable cameras so excuse the quality. I honestly don't think you could get much better quality in that era anyway LOL That right there is a vintage PowerWheels machine. They...

      Wow, that sucks. Are you TRYING to kill me? :pBack when the pandemic was fully underway its US epicenter was just a few miles away in, I kid you not, Corona, Queens (of the Simon & Garfunkel song fame, who btw grew up on the same block as I...

      Post a WTB add. I’ve seen those come hp from time to time. Tell us about your car. How’d you get it?
    • Mech Addict
      Hop in that car and come out here! We’re getting tons of snow now. Full disclosure, the news reported our county currently has the highest Covid infection rate in the US. —WE’RE #1!—

      Hopefully the pump sock did its job good and no big particles got through. But after the way the filter looked i would say the pump might need to be changed too. I would definitely get it out and inspect it for debris. Wouldn't be fun to test...

      Well I do work in a garage, but it’s often pretty cold out there. I did get the whole prop shaft rebuilt. I’m ready to put the flywheel back in, and then the tranny. Could be this weekend, depending on snow. When it snows, I split time between...

      Good news: nasty filter is changed with a fresh one. Bad news: you can guess what the inside of the tank looks like…
    • Mech Addict
      Yeah, I get that. I'll likely do the same at some point, but have enough going on currently that it's lower on my list. After my trans replacement is done, I have some oil leaking on the front case somewhere. I'll probably do all the seals and...
    • Mech Addict
      Are you going to replace the cv boots? I would consider that before messing with that low-milage diff. Perhaps check the Total Backlash as described in the FSM. Is the pinion seal dry, or seeping a little? The axle seals can be changed without...

      Mech Addict replied to the thread 1990 Eclipse GSX.
      nice photo. I assume this is for weight savings in the rotating assembly, and allows higher revs. What other mods are best to go with a build like that? I imagine simply using aluminum rods on an otherwise stock motor wouldn't be worth the...
    • Mech Addict
      Well I just started reading this whole post, and went and took a photo of my 90 gsx CAS. I won’t say it’s timed perfectly, but it seemed to run fine like this.

      There are other DSM forums? Maybe I should look into that... Kidding aside, this one is great. I also appreciate that you (Ricardo) took the time to introduce yourself before just diving in with a technical question. I've noticed some fresh...

      On old Dodges like mine, the lug nuts on the drivers side are left hand thread. Somehow there was a line of thinking that with rotation of the wheels while driving, they would be less prone to loosen. If I simply drove it into a tire shop today...

      How many times have you slipped a wrench, wacked a knuckle, and almost table flipped your car? 2 flare wrenches and squeeze. If it's a virgin fuel filter, you will probably need a red bull if you haven't received busted knuckle rage.
    • Mech Addict
      Relays are electromechanical, so I would say yes, they can be affected by temp. Even the completely transistorized flasher unit can change flasher speed in cold temps. I know because mine did, to the point where around 5F it would simply stick on...
