Re: 1989 NA Fairlane
Good information there.
Today, was the big day.
So I set up the dizzy, and bolted up the throttle, the upteenth time.
Then, as I was swapping over the ISC from the throttle, the gasket, was so brittle, it came to pieces under my fingernail.
And then, the MAP sensor hose was loose around the fitting, so I, cut a half inch off the end to get it tighter, after noticing the hose crack, clean in half, around an inch down, and later, noticing in horror, that the connection of a new one, involved, taking out all the distributor and components, all over again, to get my hand up the manifold from hell, to get the new hose connected.
I thought I could get parts today, after realising it was geelong cup holiday, with all the shops closed.
A lovely sunny day, stuck at home.
So, I devised a plan, to avoid the maintenance strain.
Usually the 3.9 Litre job from Hell, involves, the starter motor, and or Ignition coil, and or distributor.
And ah yes, I do believe it wont be too long before the starter motor, causes me more grief.
So, in stock, a brand new starter motor, MAP hose, and distributor, for the next job from hell.
Oh, more fun, I couldn't find in any manuals, the power steering switch job.
Found it on Youtube, with the mechanic finding so little room, in a fiddly awkward little space, where the switch goes, sawing a 14mm spanner in half, just to shift it!
Can't wait for that one...
