Eric I am soooo wanting one of these if you can move the redline to 6500 for my Quad.

Although I doubt this thing has ever seen 6500 with Jim, Steve and myself as the only owners, LOL!

Just let me know how much!

Cheers :beer: :beer:

Oddball update. Found out a while back the reverse lights don't work. Installed a switch and still didnt work. Plugged the wiring in to the old switch and manual plunged it: tada! So after the 5spd rebuild something no longer actuates the switch. So I had to fab a bracket and wire in a microswitch on the shifter. Actually more difficult than I would have thought...to get it to actuate and stay in R, but not when shifting into 2 or 4. I got it though now. So it's ready for inspection next week. haha

Kinda like how the Fieros have it. I thought about doing something like this, but for all 6 positions and have the H-pattern on the console light up in relation to which gear the car was in. Kinda like how somw BMWs are.

Well the POS stranded me today on the way to work. Fuel pump crap the bed. Thought it was ICM at first the way it acted. Flat towed it home tonight and now it's waiting for Amazon to deliver a new ACDelco EP241 IROC pump (same one I put in my truck) on Friday.

It's always the smallest part that leaves you stranded

Even better...I was just out of fucking gas! Dropped the tank and it was dry. Swapped the new fuel pump in anyway since I was running the original 95Z pump that's 20 years old. The TPI pump is a direct replacement with zero mods. Also just makes sense to run a pump for a 245hp car than 155. Put in a new strainer and fuel filter too...all ACDelco stuff.

So I splashed in a couple gallons and then filled it up and the gauge is still stuck. So, what is the solution for a dead gauge in the cluster? I assume you can swap one from another cluster? I have a spare cluster but I don't remember if the fuel gauge works...I do remember something was dead in that one.

So basically I towed it home and took some precious Camaro time for nothing...haha

Did you check to see if your getting a signal from the tank though? It could be an issue with the float wiring.

my gas gauge stuck when replacing my fuel pump, surprisingly after about a week it figured its life out and started working!

Wow, amazing how much better it runs with fuel!

Gauge hasn't miraculously come back to life. I reset my trip odemeter for now. I'll have to dig into the gauge/sending unit problem soon.

Been a perfect DD for me all summer as long as it has fuel! haha Haven't had time to do anything with the fuel gauge while I've been doing OT, fixing up my parents' new house, working on the Camaro and troubleshooting my truck...but this weekend I got rid of a big clunk that I tracked down to the Addco bar. The bracket is a hook on one end and bolt on the other. That hook apparently bends under some years of hard cornering, leaving slop in the bushing and clunk when the suspension is loaded unevenly, like the entrance to my parking lot at work. Threw them in the trash and replaced them with poly bushings and brackets. Simply drill a hole where the slot was and install a short bolt there. Also took a hair of grinding on the nut to clear the shock. Tada! No clunk.

Few weeks ago at work I also made a sun shade for the sunroof to block out the heat. Those black leather seats get pretty warm. Sadly the sunshine didnt agree with the plastic and warped it. Doesn't show up well in the pic, but the ghosted bowtie for the sunroof looked cool.

I also finally installed the tow strap I bought when "the fuel pump died". It tucks out of the way invisibly when not in use.

And! I hit my first car show for the year. The local SUNY college has a show at their tech center and the teacher is a friend of mine. There was a girl there with a teal 91 GT 3.1/5spd she bought new. Her first new car. It's a sunroof from being an exact showroom twin of my car straight from the General. Saw it a few years ago but was driving the Camaro then. So I got some pics with it this time.

So would it be better to start with the poly bushings and their mounts first?

That's a 91 GT Eric, it would have been crosslaces.

For the bushings...yeah. Might as well do it right the first time.

Thank you, as someone that got in on the group buy and never had a rear bar I had to ask. Really just like to have a plan in place before starting something. Never had good luck just winging things.

That is a nice teal that she has. Dang nice to see two Berettas in good shape these days. Yours is a bit more special though, but a good stocker is almost as nice.
