On Saturday I went and did it again! For the second time in my life I installed one of those heavy a$$, carbed (gas $ucking), tranny breakin, loud, sbc V-8's. And I can't wait to get her started up.So if I add all this up I'm the proud owner of 16 cylinders, 32 valves, duel carbs,and 8 forward gears. Life is good. Have a Great Day Gary It's my lucky day I own page 8

Completely tore down the passenger side door. Doing a door refurb project. Finished the DS last week, now time for the PS. Pulled the inner & outer door panel/skin. Removed the lock motor for refurb. Pulled the power window motor & regulator to clean up & regrease everything. Pulled the petrified old dew wipe to make a new one using my pieces from Joe, per this thread. http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/067338.html
cleaned up the inside of the door. that's about it for today ... more tomorrow.
Repaired the wiring to my seat speakers. The PO previously butchered the wiring to add a couple of rear speakers in the sides. Now the seat speakers work again! Also fixed the cig lighter so now I can charge up my cell pone. Slowly... slowly...
changed an alternator on the side of the road in my 86gt, probaly the fastest i've done one in a fiero.
i was about a mile and a half from my house when it locked up. i left it in front of a church and started to walk home when someone came out of the church and gave me a ride home (devine intervention?). got the convertible (the only other thing i've got running right now), went back, took the alt. off and got another at auto zone. stuck it on and drove the convertible back home, then walked back and drove the gt on in to work.
gotta get some maintenance done or break down (and break a piggy bank) and get another truck. been procrastinating and a gt and convertible are not the things to have going with winter coming.
Yeah........................I'll eventually start a new thread on the rebirth of the Purple Turd when it holds together.
The long and the short of it, we found the problem with blowing engines. Now I have one HECK OF A FAST motor in it. Feels good, sounds good, runs AWESOME. It's just too bad it "ate" my built transmission On a better note, diagnosis has narrowed it down to a blown torque converter.
I drove to work today and on the way in I got gas. It took 10.6 gallons to fill. I must have been driving on fumes. (Thank you Lord for all small favors.) I'm getting too old to push my car to the nearest gas station.
Hooked up a Battery Maintainer on the GT. Found this little gem at West Marine. Can be hooked up three ways, straight to the battery , or with clips, or to the lighter. It will trickle charge when needed, shut down when charged
