Re: Loud Backfire and then Silence

The first thing I would have check was the timing belt. A 72 is an interference motor. I hope you are correct about it being an electrical issue

non fiat-how does paypal work

I'm purchasing a musical instrument from a guy in Minnesota. I want to figure out how to pay him with assurances that my money won't just disappear. As I recall paypal offers some protection here. Can someone tell me how paypal works and if it is the right vehicle for this. Thanks

Re: Rough Idle, low power, and engine dies at stoplights

One way to test is to switch the #4 injector with one of the other ones and see if the pattern moves with the injectors. It does sound like you need to have your injectors rebuilt. I would try running some injector cleaner in the fuel first

Re: 220 volt AC fan help

The last picture shows the schematic and capacitor size on the label. My heatpump part of my AC went out this morning. Knowing this was a 4th day of 350 degree heat, I know I wouldn't be able to get an AC guy out, so went on the internet for answers. Ran on to a pro who cataloged all the service cal...

Re: Engine Shield

Re: Starter Motor Istallation

As Csaba said, you can look at the ring gear from the inspection hole. Just rotate the motor by hand to see it ...

Re: Paint experts! PPG Pitt-guard

When Mirafiori was revamped, they lost my old contact info, so I had to sign up as a new user. I just went thru my profile and saw no place to add an email address. The email hasn't changed, just the link. I'll send you a PM

Re: Paint experts! PPG Pitt-guard

Paints that take that long to dry will sag on vertical surfaces. For a proper auto finish, the subsurface (primer) needs to be sanded with 400 grit or finer. Most industrial preps never get sanded to this fine of a grit. The paint would be unsuitable in a metallic. Automotive paints are big business...
