Free Parts Detroit

Free parts. This is not my add. They're all free and going to go in trash unless someone gets them. I asked him for pix but he didn't send. Might be worth it if you're not too far away. Hate to see stuff just tossed.

Re: Headlights went dark

Thanks Richard. I haven't checked the headlight wiring or ground pods yet. The battery clamps are tight. 12.4 volts when car not on, 13.95 with car running, and 13.74 with running and headlights on.

Headlights went dark

Last night the headlights on my 82 went out temporarily. The battery light came on bright red. Radio was still working tho I dont remember if dash lights went out. Flipped switch couple times and got nothing. After about 5 seconds or so of driving down dark road in the dark they came back on. No pro...

Re: More Wheeler Dealer Bashing

Honored

So my 14 year old son and garage assistant decided to upgrade his car on Xbox Forza 3 to a 1980 spider. He got to pick the color to match mine and races it around, even with the low hp. The image detail is incredible and watching it cruise the virtual streets is fun. He says the car is almost the sa...

Re: negative camber

Thanks for the suggestions. I dont have external compressor so I might try it with the pita internal rental one. The dremel is tempting tho a mistake would be even more costly. I spoke to my local Fiat mechanic, who's been specializing in Fiats for 30 years and is actually from Italy so that's alway...

Re: negative camber

Yeah, unfortunately they're not. They were basically washers. The manual says take care not to lose any and make sure they're replaced exactly. Well, I did as instructed. :oops: Wondering if I remove wheel, jack underneath ball joint I can loosen mounting nuts and cut off shims. To have to redo ever...
