    Street Build ITFLYS - 1Gina2G

    Some of the reviews said the sticky tape was not good quality on that one. Not sure how tough it would be to remove and replace with 3M tape before install.

    Just finished the series over the weekend. I love the car, in all its ridiculousness, just like the movie car. My favorite part has to be the repurposed NOS tank. Here’s a screen shot if you have not looked it up yet.

    99 GS to GST

    I believe you’re asking about bolting a 4g63 transmission to a 420a block. I hope I’m reading that correctly. If so, the answer is it will not work.

    Spyder 97 spyder starter clicks. Doesn’t crank

    That’s great to get you out of being stranded, but don’t forget you should still plan to replace the starter in the near future if you’re going to be depending on this vehicle.

    97 eclipse

    Have you measured the draw? Unhook the negative battery terminal and hook a voltmeter set on amps between the battery post and the terminal. 50 mA was the maximum acceptable draw when I was working at the dealership, and that’s on newer cars so I’d imagine dsms should run lower than that.

    I’ve heard they are getting hard to find here, too. Although safelite gives me a quote online, I don’t know if they would call and cancel after the fact due to availability. We may all be running lexan one day soon.:idontknow:

    1G Rear balance shaft bearing came loose

    It was supercharged. Fun car but admittedly it was modded too much for a daily. My wife hated it! LOLGlad you got your car back going. Hope you get used to the extra vibrations easy. How’s the oil pressure looking?

    1G Rear balance shaft bearing came loose

    I think it’s just because the bearings come in a set. They just send them together and let you decide what to do with it.

    I think you made the right decisions for the BSE here. Any history of that block spinning that bearing out before this? Let us know your opinion of the vibration, hopefully not too bad!

    2G Rear Ended, worth fixing? Insurance tips??

    Glad you’re okay. You gotta fix it! Maybe print out some final auction prices for similar cars on BAT and eBay? I’m case you have to prove that the car is a collector car with higher value than KBB.

    New to dsm

    Are you looking for 1g or 2g? The 1990 being the first year has several things about it that differs from 91-94 so that can potentially cause parts issues. In 92.5 the engines changed from 6 bolt crank shaft to 7 bolts, and in 2g’s 7 bolts, crank walk was a big scare and lots of people swapped...

    420A Help with damaged spark plug

    You’re gonna need it on TDC to reinstall the belt, so you might as well put it there before you remove it. If you can, that is, it’s not broken? It’s fine to leave it sitting without oil while you’re repairing it. When it’s not running, the oil is just sitting in the pan anyway.
