Looks like I got page 12.

I was able to get a lot of little things done today. Added new holes for the second fastener for the engine grills. Put the spare tire tub back in it's spot. Added the spare tire and jack . Installed the windshield washer tank. Used caulking to close off the air leak around the evaporator lines.

We are gonna take the car to the Red River Ruckus in Fredericksburg next weekend.

I put the hood back on the car this afternoon after work. Added one can of 134A. It lasted about a hour, until the on and off cyceling started back up again. After Ruckus I am gonna have the system filled with dry nitrogen to help me locate the leak. I can't see anything dripping or wet from the dye in the system.

I am just about finished working on the car until Fredericksburg Ruckus is over with. I will remove the console to see what is up with my lighter socket being dead. Fuse is fine.

Me too Ben. We will be leaving here around 7-8 am Friday morning. Yahoo maps says it is 260 miles from home here.

I found that the ground wire was unplugged from the lighter socket. I am thinking about making the two wires a bit longer, and fasten the lighter socket to the black trim face plate. The mounts on the console have pretty well had it. Easy fix.

Hey Joe... I did not get to visit with you and Mrs Cathy very much at Ruckus.

I wanted to ask if the white car had a good weekend at Ruckus?
We certainly gave her a good workout and I wanted to know if you found any problems that you need looking at?

I must say it looked very good in person and warmed my heart to see y'all driving it!

I am afraid to do any boasting about the car. Don't want to jinx it!!!!!! But we had zero problems of any kind. We had to go to Houston when we got home, and after returning home at 11:00pm I had 917 miles since heading west Friday morning. I drove it to work this morning!!

I want to say I am real pleased with the Champion 3 core radiator. The engine runs 192* with the AC on or off, hot or cold outside, up hill or down. Doesn't seam to matter what the conditions are when driving. Every one with a 23 year old radiator should consider this upgrade.

88 Brakes are a big improvement over pre 88's.

I am always happy to be with everyone at the Ruckus, Spring Fling, or what ever Fiero event we all meet up at.

See you guys next time, soon we hope.

I remember talking to you about the two tone roof quite a while back. I used gloss black to repaint any black items on the car.

I am pretty happy with the car. I averaged 24 mpg over the weekend. Zero problems of any type.

I ordered screws and fasteners to put the two rear wheel well liners back in their spots. I'll get those back in as soon as the fasteners arrive here.

I have nothing to repair, replace, or fix except for a hood. I didn't think I would ever say that. I don't know what to do with my spare time now!!!!!

When we got back home from Ruckus all items in the trunk were quite warm. My 86 coupe with the duke never got hot in the trunk, The exhaust manifold was between the engine and the passenger compartment. My 3.4 has an exhaust manifold less than a foot from the forward part of the trunk. I ordered a piece of insulation on E Bay that was 1/2" thick with the aluminum backing. Supposed to be good for 1200*. It was a 24" by 48" piece for about $22.00. Here is a link to the sellers store:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/nda...rksid=p2047675.l2562
I removed the liner and used spray adhesive to attach the insulation. If you do this be sure and cut the holes for the large gray liner fasteners BEFORE you install it in the trunk. I have driven the car to work with this installed. About a 25 min trip. Trunk was not hot at all after the install. Cool to the touch still.

Ben The forward metal was very hot before I added in this insulation. Now it is just a small amount of warm. You wouldn't want to put a chocolate candy bar back there. Not as hot as a seat with the windows up on a hot Texas day.

Sorry I didn't see your question until tonight. I had removed the lower portion of the trunk for the exhaust system for my 4.9 swap I had i this car before I built and installed this 3.4. I installed a bottom piece of metal over the missing section. I trimmed the remaining piece of the trunk liner to fit . After removing it and adding the insulation, it was a bit tight, but still went into place.

I have purchased just about everything that I need to swap in a 4T60 overdrive transmission. I have the correct governor cap, both CV shafts, shift cable bracket with arm, and the correct 4T60 mount brackets. I need to start looking for a low mileage transmission now. I am thinking about doing this some time this winter. After Christmas I'm thinking.

Hey Joe, Mike Good might have a lead on one of those transmissions for you. Give him a call and see. If you want I can pick it up and store it until you can pick it up or I go to Houston.

I changed the oil for the first time since the 500 mile change was done. It had used about 1/4 quart.

I have driven my 88 522 miles this Thanksgiving weekend. No problems of any kind. Averaged 25 mpg. I purchased a MV303 at Autozone for my 4T60 swap project I am gonna try to do in January. This is the smaller size vacuum modulator needed to clear the V6 crossover coolant pipe.

Drove my 88 to Austin, Tx for the Bat City Fiero club meeting. Had a lot of fun, great food, and met some new Fiero owners.

I developed a miss on the way home. My tach started jumping around a bit when the miss was present. When I got home I unplugged the tach filter. After jumping the two wires back togeather, in the harness part of the plug, I went for a 20 mile ride. The miss was gone, but I still had a few 'jumps' on the tack needle. Maybe 10 in the whole 20 mile run.

The engine will run without the jumper, but the tach is dead without it.

I ordered a new tach filter from Rodney Dickman.

My miss and erratic tach jumps were back with me this morning. Unplugged the TCC to make sure it wasn't acting up. This had no effect on the miss.

We had a great time Ben. I wish I could say I fixed my gremlin, but can't. My new RD tach filter arrived today in the mail. I am waiting on a new set of AC Delco spark plug wires to get here. I am planning on putting them on the car Sunday morning. Then a quick check ride.

Yesterday morning I removed all spark plugs and plug wires. What a pisser of a job !!!!!!!!! The forward bank is nasty to do. Just plain nasty. I found # 5 plug just finger tight in the head. My bad. All 6 plugs looked nice and clean. I removed the mounting bracket from the old coil and added my new AC Delco coil. I removed my pretty red MSD distributor cap and found the button end in the top of the cap was half missing. Rotor was degraded also. Only 5000 miles on these. The piece of a sticker from the top of the ICM was loose inside the distributor, and floating around.

I went and got me a new AC Delco cap and rotor in Huntsville, Texas. Installed my new Rodney Dickman tach filter. I installed the AC Delco ICM that MustangsBware gave me last year. All is back togeather. Took her for a nice 22 mile run. Miss is gone and the tack needle is nice and smooth again.

I took pictures with my cell phone, but can't get the SYNC to work tonight. I'll post them later.
The rotor an 3 plugs:


Top inside of the cap:


Running pretty good today. Filled it it with High Test gas at the local Shell station.

Found a spot of oil underneath the car. I could not see where it was coming from as it had oil all over creation around the harmonic balancer. I need a car of carb cleaner to remove the excess before I can see the source.

It's the timing cover seal. This is gonna be fun. I put a new Fel-Pro seal in it when I built the engine 5K back. I guess China is making Fel-Pro seals now.

Sorry Blake. Guess it went right over the top.

Ordered a pair of door hinges to stop the sagging and rattle of the passenger side door.

Very nice car you are building. I actually got to see the cup holder mod that is in your car in Ben and Bec's car. Yes he let me take it to Wally world. Very nice mod. Did you use the champion radiator that is made for the Fiero or another part number?
thanks,

I used a Champion radiator that is made for the Fiero. That and the cup holder are items that are money well spent.

Lower door hinge came this morning in the mail.

I have located a 4T60 with 71K miles. A one owner car. I verified this information with Carfax.
It's a 3.33 drive ratio

Nice!
I got the connectors mailed out Monday.
I did a Formula a few years ago 3.4PR with a 4T60.
