  12. After almost 2.5 years of ownership and enjoyment of '74 2002Tii, I'm afraid my era of stewardship over this car is about to come to an end. After 20+ years in my current company, time has come to start the next chapter -- and that's looking like it will be halfway across the world. I will hate to part with my Tii (and my '67 Skylark vert) and the various parts I've collected -- and the many fond memories. I will specially miss the frequent interaction with this wonderful forum and its members. I have been (and am) a member of several auto forums and I can honestly say that my experience here has been the best. Byas
  13. Rob, I'd like to try this approach. Was the car a 5speed? Any worries about clutch slave hitting tunnel? Byas
  14. I have a NOS 2002 Brake Booster I'd like to sell. I have no idea what a fair asking price on this part is. I've currently listed it at the purchase price from about 5-6 years ago, but not sure that's a good starting point either. Any thoughts on what a reasonable asking price is? Byas
  15. I have a NOS 2002 Brake booster for sale. Based on purchase price I'd like to get $450 + shipping. Byas Location: El Dorado Hills, CA
  16. Hmmm... Wonder why auto manufacturers switched to electronic when points were cheaper (and we know auto guys like cheap) AND better? IME, points do not perform better than electronic ignition. Well adjusted points will run as well until they start to wear. And a well designed and reliable electronic ignition will stay adjusted and operate well for much longer than a set of points (the Magneti Marelli system on my 81 Fiat Spider did not require changing for over 20 years). However, if/when they fail - pertronix/hotspark etc are not as widely available as the points - so keep a spare (electronic or points). Byas
  17. Carry a spare hotspark. Still cheaper than the Pertronix. And easier to swap than putting points back in.
  18. Bryce, I got the door jamb switch you sent me - thanks!! I think it probably came earlier but fell between the seats when my wife picked it up at the mailbox. Cleaning out the car today -- and found it. Thanks again!! Byas
  19. Sticker in pic 1 says - Polaris. And the yellowing is the same as on my 74 Polaris car. So I would say no color change.
  20. +1 on the 6ton jack stands. I have 4 of them from HF. I put car on stands, leave the jack locked for additional support and put the wheels I've removed under the car as well. I bought the 6ton stands not for their capacity but really for their lift. The broader base is a plus.
  21. Will try again next weekend. thx for tips! byas
  22. With the new slide bushing and the old but very serviceable rubber alternator bushings, the alternator sits more square now and the squealing seems to have gone away. Though, have only driven it about 10miles -- will need to get some more miles to check. If it comes back, will buy a new alternator. Byas
  23. There was a squealing noise that varied with engine speed which I suspected was alternator belt slipping. While adjusting the belt tightness, there seemed more slop in the setup than I thought was right - the alternator was at an angle that bordered on not being right, so ordered new OEM bushings for slide mount and urethane for the alternator. Tightening the belt did not fix the squeal. So uninstalled the alternator yesterday to replace bushings. The slide mount was only installed with one bushing instead of the 2 and that had caused more play -- the new oem bushings fixed that. The rubber bushings on the alternator were actually ok, but thought I'd replace anyway. But, I could not get the urethane bushings to go in easily. I was running out of time, so went back to rubber bushings. As I was about the mount the alternator, I spun the alternator fan and I heard the whine/squeal that I had heard before. Bad bearing? Byas
