Hello all. New member with first post, so be gentle
Just picked up an '87 GT 5spd in pretty good shape. Going through making it safe and roadworthy ( tires, brakes, cooling lines, belts, etc). AC was non-operative ( Bad Compressor), so I have parts on order for replacement.
Pulled lines to flush, and found something curious to me. Not sure if this is stock, or if some PO has cobbled something up, so wanted to check. The connection from the short engine hose to the pipes attached at the rear driver's side firewall was connected with a 6mm 1.0 x60 bolt, threaded into what appears to be a speednut. Did the factory use this speednut configuration, or should there be a more substantial nut there for assembly? Thanks!
