"Remove the back rest (optional but makes it easier) . Remove the bolts that holds the seat rails to the floor. Tilt the seat backwards and you have access to the seat transmission. "

Which way does the connector for the window cut out, normal, emergency switch go?

The connector has three evenly spaced ports. It looks like it could go either way. I, idiot, made careful notes and then lost them. The wires are red, white black stripe and yellow black stripe. See More

where do I find a new and better motor?

Posted on May 24, 2018 at 11:43am 11 Comments

Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?

Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…

This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
