This is probably a dumb question, but what is the part called that holds the front suspension in place and bolts up to the knuckle in a 1g? Does anyone know where i can find this part?
That's the switch for the anti-theft alarm. If the alarm is armed (doors/hood locked) and the hood is somehow opened, it would trigger the alarm. I personally disconnected that switch and removed it since I was having my alarm triggering for no reason on hot sunny days but I think that was a different issue. Leave yours if nothing's wrong.
Thanks so much! I didn't receive a key fob when I bought the car so I don't think I will run into any problems with the alarm.
It's just the basic rebuilt fwd. 5spd paired with an LSD.Looks like a brake booster (or vacuum) pump from some other vehicle.
Is this on an automatic?
Lol what kind of weird sience stuff was the original owner doing? I wish i would have taken pictures of all the stuff i corrected sorting this car out when i got it. Thanks for the input, i wasn't sure what kind of answers were going to pop up. Its definitely in a bit of sad shape but i think it works the way it should....maybe. LolI thought it looked like a "pump' and it didn't dawn on me about a vacuum pump. Thanks Tim.
Jeff, I could use it on MY car...…….
Oh now that you mention it there is a bracket on the engine next to the charge pipe where it could fit and bolt on. How necessary is the engine warmer and benefits?It takes 12V or 115V? I think its an engine heater. Has inlet and outlet for coolant hose. Has pump and heater. Or maybe something else.
Nice! Thank you! It's a garage queen and a non winter car. I drive it to work once every 1 to 2 weeks just to keep it fresh. It's rust free and she needs to remain that wayProbably not much unless it’s getting down below 10F consistently. If you don’t have trouble starting in the cold, leave it off.
