Re: Need parts

:evil: I can't find it. I WILL find it, eventually, I have too much going on right now to mess with it. BUT, I won't be driving my 'old' '95 Z-26 for a couple of weeks. It only takes a couple of minutes to remove the wiper switch from there. It isn't as minty-fresh as the 'new' Z's switch, but it is...

Re: Need parts

Moog is good, but a little over-priced compared to the generic brands. We had some small quality-control issues with them on occasion, but they are definitely one of the better brands. I've come to like Mevotech -they are a Canadian-originated company, they directly manage the production-facilities ...

Re: Need parts

Yeah, Paypal is fine. I even checked ebay, the only switches I can find are non-intermittent, either with or without defrost, or for the older-style interior. I got you though, don't worry on that small thing. You have another car to get you around, right?

Re: red wire from fan relay keeps melting shutting fan off

I am assuming you are looking at the engine coolant fan circuit, not the heater/ A/C blower-motor circuit... The wire that keeps 'melting' SHOULD BE a 'Fusible Link', it is a special type of wire used just like a fuse. When too much current starts running through the wiring, either due to a direct s...

Re: Help with 76 New Yorker

Rettax3, Are you suggesting my New Yorker is a HEAVY WEIGHT!!!!! ; ) She has the 440 and everything works the way it should including the chronometer. You bet! Real steel! I don't care much for plastic cars though, so from me it is a compliment. :wink: In my old Mopar, the only thing that DOESN'T w...

Re: Need parts

I'll try to snap some pics today. So you have intermittent wipers and rear defrost? I'm just getting over a cold too -I know how you feel there! I would rather deal with a shop that tried hard and did good work than a shop owned by a jerk that did great work but treated me like crap. Get her outta t...

Re: Need parts

Hey, Money Pit , glad you are still around! Sorry to hear your car got hit -there seems to be a lot of that going around lately. Makes me afraid to drive some of my nicer cars around... I almost got taken-out by a UPS driver the other day too. If you are repainting the whole car, the color of the do...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

...White is the other hardest color to match, aside from maybe metallics. Just saying. :wink: It might be better to find a clean white Beretta than respraying yours, changing colors well on a car is a lot more expensive than just repainting to original -think about door-jambs, underside of the hood,...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

Sounds like a good plan. They should be able to paint the hood separately, especially since it is black. On my Z-24, I replaced the fenders with steel Z-3 vented (like gills) ones. They came pre-primered, and I know how to sand for paint-prep. I asked three different places how much to spray two pri...

Re: The Z26 you all wanted to see

The hood is only temporary until I can get the good one fixed, or get this one repainted properly(whichever is cheaper). Glad to see the front-end stayed straight. I've seen some that got hit just enough to break some spot-welds and deform the sheet-metal of the 'frame'. My '92 G/A ('N' Body, but s...

Re: Help with 76 New Yorker

Custom upholstery shop will be your best shot. Not cheap, but if you want to keep it 'correct', that will be the best way. Nice thing about leather is that you don't really need to search for the right pattern, like fabric and even vinyl. So long as it is cut and stitched right, you should be good. ...

Re: 1995 Turbo'd 3500 Z

They look pretty sharp in there. How well do they move so far as recline, tilt, slide? Stock seats usually suck at slide adjustments. Any plans for the rear seats? My 'Vert Z-28 is getting Audi seats retro-fitted in -they do sit just a tad high, even when dropped fully (power height-adjustable), but...

Re: 1992 - Stall After Surge / Slow Cycling

Lastly, these computers are nearly bullet-proof, and it used to be that every time someone couldn't figure out a problem, they screamed bad ECM . It (almost) never was. This could be the problem you have now, though I doubt it. I am glad you seem to have it figured out. I have noticed a lot of the ...

Re: Black z26 hood

The header panel is one piece, all the way across. Same part for all years and sub-models, so easier to find, and because it hides under the plastics, who cares what it looks like so long as it isn't cracked? Only problem is that it is a BIG piece, so getting someone to ship one to you will cost -is...
