Drove home from Rehoboth Beach, wife snapped the following photo :



Some guy following me, as we passed in the righ tline about 5-ish cars strolling along in the left lane, he was honking at me to get my attention & I _think_ he complimented on my car. My exhaust sucks :/

The BMW is going to be the next swap car I think. LSx swap! The Fiero is finished. The wheels would look good on the Fiero...

Followed the directions from the archives and I changed my PCV valve. Not a big thing for you Fiero-masters, but I am not mechanical at all.
Thanks to PFF I can change my spark plugs, replace (d) the speakers, change some of the sensors, and, now the PCV valve. Love this forum!!

Yesterday, I replaced the e-brake cables and that crappy boot on the e-brake handle. Then I adjusted the e-brake using the Sardonyx method.

All I did was drive them to my new warehouse. It's nice driving a T-Top in nice weather.

I loved my old place, but the property was sold and we had to move out (I did get compensated for breaking my lease, so it's not too bad). The new place is more modern and clean, but also smaller in size. I'll have to snap a few pictures tomorrow when I finish moving the tools and parts over.

Installed the cooling fan in the WRX scoop with adjustable thermostat. Seems to work pretty well. Running 100+ here and seems to help in the city traffic. Also installed a permanent camera rear view. After 2 near misses with the incredible blind spots I decided enough was enough. Works pretty well though I am noticing some areas seem to screw with the 2.4 wireless signal so I think I'll run a hardwire connection. The license plate mounted camera works better than I thought it would. The screen can except two video inputs so I think I'll hook up the DVD player in the stereo to it. Took it on some back roads to test it out.

Yesterday, I finally got around to fixing the clutch. The clutch would not disengage. After pulling the transaxle, I found out why. The pressure plate, friction disc, and flywheel had all rusted together. I had to pry them apart! Luckily, I was able to clean up the pressure plate and flywheel with a wire brush. And there just happened to be a 6-puck ceramic friction disc sitting on the shelf. So that went in.

edit to add photo:

LOL, I painted that on there to piss off my wife. She was complaining she felt like a widow since I started tinkering with the Fiero. Not sure if it was because I spent so much time with it, or because she thought I would die in it. The photo shows a better shot of the scoop. The WRX style is taller and provided the needed room for the cooling fan I wanted to install, plus its something different from the standard Mustang scoop. Sits taller but no taller than the rear spoiler.

Posted earlier that I had finished rebuilding the rear suspension.
A couple of pics.




Have the left front completely disassembled. Lower ball joint and and all bushings are removed. Only had to burn the bushings out of the lowers. Was able to drill/press the uppers out.
The old shocks have zero compression damping, and not much rebound damping. The new ones should be much nicer.

Ready to install poly, modify the springs, and reassemble. Then to the right front.

Hey Raydar, those SensaTracs will be a nice upgrade from the OEM Fiero shocks / struts.... been there done that. It'll feel like a completely different car.

That said, I hope you kept the rubber bushings in the trailing arms. The trailing arms need some cushion. The struts dampen movement in the vertical direction, and the trailing arm bushings dampen movement in the horizontal. If you put hard bushings in the trailing arms, the ride will get harsher.

Finished polishing the intake, valve covers, alternator and vent covers and getting them clear coated. The magnesium vent covers polished up nicer than I expected. I need a new trunk seal.

I got my A/C working for the first time since my engine swap. Seems that the car that I used for a wiring harness with my SD4 engine, didn't have a provision to run the A/C relay from the ECM and I over looked hooking it up when I first hooked up the computer. So we added a new pin to the harness and bingo, the AC started working.

Drove for about 10 minutes and before I could even really enjoy the A/C I was getting towed home. Something happened to my fuel delivery. Car idles fine, but whenever you try to push the gas to go nothing happens. I can see with the wideband the engine goes off the scale lean, and the computer is calling for fuel to correct, but car won't go. After I got home, I swapped out each fuel injector with a known good one. The car would drive great for 2 or 3 minutes, and I think the problem is fixed and then the problem returns.

Next I'll have to get a gauge to check the fuel pressure. maybe my pump is on the way out after 30 years. Not sure what the failure modes are for a fuel pump. Could it work ok and then give out when it warms up a bit?? I don't know what would explain it running fine for a few minutes and then acting up with an apparent FUEL related problem.
