  1. so now that you have the heater rebuild ref. with all of it's details, simply stick your hand into the right side of the fire wall and feel the hot water valve lever. You should be able to rotate the lever where the cable attaches with your hand. Try it in the two extreme positions. Run the motor & drive the car - and feel the hoses for temperature changes. Have a helper gently move the TEMP control lever inside the car while you feel with your hand if the cable rotates the water valve arm..........

  4. Once Loved 1977. then .....x.....x..... . Now Loved Again. Maybe at this point while the motor is out and the body is light would be a good time to remove the front and rear subframes for inspection and re-bushing. If turbo power is going back in then brakes, ball joints, rear control arms should be addressed now before the power returns.

  10. ..."is there any way to get a visual on the condition of the seals without taking the head off and disassembling the valve train? = NO oil consumption test yes smoking during off-throttle deaccel from high rpm yes oil deposits on spark plugs yes
  11. after driving 10 miles, jack up the front end and try/feel if one of the front wheels is stuck or hard to turn, and is one of the disks turning black? and can you feel that there is more heat on the center of the wheel with the sticking brake compared to the free spinning wheel ??? defective caliper? alignment issue? bent suspension/steering part? wrong size brake pads?
  12. suggest a compression test F I R S T!! and a OIL PRESSERE test SECOND!!! save yourself unnec work, incorrect diagnosis, wasted money, time and effort. Don't Guess.
