Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

The slickest way is with the mastercool flaring tool, but I didn't spring for that yet. Best tool I've ever bought... Perfect flares every time and so many options. You were the one that recommended it when I was doing mine. I had trouble getting a good double flare on the cunifer even with a quali...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

That's a lot of work, I did mine a couple years ago. Looks like you used the cunifer line, worth the money imo. How did you adapt to the quick connects near the filter? Looks like you used the Dorman adapter lines, that's what I did. The slickest way is with the mastercool flaring tool, but I didn't...

Fuggin Ohio...
Man it made me sick to see that photo, I've been following your thread with all the work you have put in to the new axle/disc conversion. Hope patching it up goes well.

Re: no fuel pump, no spark, no power to fuse

It looks like #81 on the exploded view, and yes it looks like the 1st item on the parts page. You do not have to take the column apart (steering wheel, etc) to replace it. The switch is mounted to the outside of the column. You MAY have to lower the column, I have never replaced the switch on a Bere...

Re: Project 91 "SS" 3400/5spd

Good update. That motor looks clean n' mean.

Its getting to the point where you pretty much need a machine shop to keep these cars on the road, ha ha

I can't believe I spent money on an actual seep belt tool when all I needed was an effing zip tie and a 9/16 wrench!!

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

11?! Wow. So what brand are those that you settled on? ACDelco strut mounts, nice. I put Monroe on mine and one of the studs broke on the 2nd or 3rd tightening. I'm not super impressed. I actually just put my suspension back in tonight. Gonna be strange on the ground... Those are Monroe struts, P/N...

Rollin' again

After ordering/returning 11 total struts I have a pair I am satisfied with and installed on Sunday. Car is off of jack stands finally and I even gave it a quick wash (a rare occurrence). I got to take it for a test drive! Went to my parents and had a beer with Dad, then stopped at Advance and return...

Re: New strut - b.o.o.b.

I figured I should bring this to a close, hopefully not too soon. After ordering: 2 Sachs (1 defect) 3 kyb's (2 defects) 3 delcos (2 defects) 3 Monroe's (1 defect) I have a set of plain ol Monroe's that seem consistent with my highly scientific "see how hard they are to compress and then make s...

Wow, I can't believe you crammed that blown 3800 in there, I saw it in your sig, but I hadn't seen a pic. Impressive.

Re: LS1/t56 swap

Freakin sux the photos are wiped! Im glad I caught up on your build yesterday while they were still there. Digging it, awesome work. I enjoyed the article as well despite the errors already mentioned. The timeline is cool, and on a side note I found it interesting that you are an electrician. I'm an...

Re: Finally...

Sweet man, I'm following this. Many motivated members here, I'm impressed with all of the swaps. I feel like my stock 3.1mpfi is hard enough to work on, I can't imagine swaps, adding a turbo, etc.

Re: New strut - b.o.o.b.

Interesting. I compressed and extended them several times, but never thought to turn the shaft. I have 2 KYB's and a sachs in my basement that I deemed as defective, so easy enough to try. The delco's I received, one of them was bad as well. I'm still waiting on a replacement, supposed to be here to...

Re: Project 91 "SS" 3400/5spd

Good update, you've been busy.

1.6 HP and 1.7 lb/ft huh? That's a damn accurate brain dyno.

The harness braid is nice, that's a helluva lot of work.

I've been playing around with a new lathe we got at work, cool stuff.

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

Man I love that '88 body style, that car has to be a blast. I was coming of age in that era so those will always be the sh$t to me.
I don't mean to derail the thread, just get excited about everyone's non-beretta projects too.
