Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Well the "idle relearn" worked for A few days, but it crept back up to about 1k in gear, and it hunts around/races at around 3k if I let it warm up in the driveway. I unplugged the TCC as a test, that is what I was feeling with the tranny. 1-2, 2-3 feel good, it was just kicking in and out...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

This past weekend along with some maintenance, I had to check out the front motor mount. I could tell something wasn't right ever since we took it in vacation. I had replaced the mount last winter so it's only got maybe 8k miles on it. Once I had the car jacked up I could see the front cradle was ri...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

What part of the country are you in? I do have a great shifting non-slipping TH125C (aka 3T40) in my '90 Yellow Indy -I want to 5-speed swap that car and just need the pedal set at this point, and the TH won't have a home after that (I have a few new CV joints for it too that came with the car)... ...

Re: what did you do to your ride today?

Oil change, tire rotation. Adjusted rear brakes. Fighting a high idle so I did a once-over for vacuum leaks. Pulled the IAC and cleaned it even though it looked ok. Did the mysterious "idle relearn" and she was idling at around 650 in gear, much better. We will see if it creeps back up. Al...

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

Hello, can you tell me please what the part number for the Sachs struts is. I am not able to find them on the Internet and my parts dealer can only get a right front one from Monroe. Thank you Sorry for the delay. Here's a link to the right Sachs strut: https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/chevrolet...

Re: The '90s called...

Wow... that's not much for such a clean truck. Ouch. I know, but they won't take that in to consideration. They see it as a 25yr old truck with 211k miles. Believe me I would love to fix it. It's just too effed though. The only panel that possibly could be reused is the passenger door, and I'm not ...

Re: Stink bugs!

Our country has imported Chinese stink bugs and it's that time of year when they look for winter shelter. They stink a bit but not like skunk. It's smell is kind of like rancid oil with pine. I was working on my 88 when I kept smelling the bug's smell. I look down into the alternator and this littl...

Re: The '90s called...

Damnnnnnn... Save that NV4500, they're hard to find! I wanted to. I hadn't bothered to cancel the full coverage on the truck, I had a lien on it to pay for a new roof on my house. I paid the loan off a couple months ago but it still had the full coverage when this happened. State farm offered $3900...

Re: The '90s called...

Oh man, sorry you wrecked your truck. The truck looked solid, not much rust that I can see. But you weren't hurt so that is the most important thing. Also, no ticket from the cops for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident? It was, unbelievably solid for a Midwest truck. It spent most of it's...

Fairwell to one of my '90s fleet

I'm resurrecting this thread since I have to send my awesome '93 GMC to the shredder. Damn. Miss it already, rowing the gears in the NV4500 with that torquey ol' TBI 350. I was on my way home from work on Sept 24th, it had been raining and I guess I was taking the curve too fast. Hydroplaned and the...

Re: From backyard to Berettafest

20180916_115208.jpg :D so, I bought my first Beretta in 1999, when I was still a teenager. Dressed it up, but a year later it got totalled. 17 years later, I decided to live my youth again, researched online and found the exact same car in Ohio! After a 12 hour drive, I picked it up and took it bac...

Re: Back to Berettas after 15+ years

Sounds just like the way my old 88 behaved years ago before the 3T40 completly lost Reverse then several weeks after I lost Drive and then nothing worked. Then I did a used transmission swap because a rebuild wasnt worth the money for it. Then the rust got to bad and I junked it because it wasnt as...

Cleaned up from the road trip

Finally got a bath after our 1500 or so mile trip attending a destination wedding and then on to the beach after that. Once we reached the wedding venue in Asheville, I thought for sure the trans was cooked. We had just exited the freeway after 450 miles, and then the wedding venue was up this insan...

Re: My Berettas and Stuff :)

The headliner looks great and it does match the seats! Did you have an upholstery shop do it?
Somehow my factory '93 headliner is holding on, I hope it stays that way.

Re: NC road trip to pick up my pickup

That thing rocks. I love that era of gm trucks, mines much like it but only 2wd unfortunately.

Still fun, 3.73 rear w/nv4500.
