  7. Just it it with a hammer! Bit of a backstory - about a month and a half ago I had to replace the alternator in my 626. The thing that slowed me down most of all was the blasted locknut on the tensioner for the alternator belt. Ended up having to cut the belt in order to get the car apart. Once I removed the alternator, and the tensioner I found that the nut had been molested to all Hell (much like the rest of the car when I first got it), had been rounded enough to roll down a hill. Ended up having to force the new belt into place with everything reassembled. Not recommended I know...though at the time it was the only way I was going to get the car back on the road. Flash forward to a couple of weeks ago, the wrecker I go to got a Eunos 30X, which I grabbed the entire tensioner bracket assembly from. Once again, the nut was frozen solid, though I grabbed the assembly since the nut was in much better shape than the nut on mine. I've been trying to get it un-done mostly with a combination of brute-force, and drowning it in WD-40. Finally tonight i gave the damn thing a few good hits with a hammer, and went hell for leather on it with the breaker bar. Finally got the bastard! During the alternator replacement process I nicknamed that locknut the "Nemesis Nut"...rather proud of myself at the moment :)
  8. Looks nice. Nice to see some Telstar love...it seems that here in Australia few people seem to care about old Telstars and 626's....about 9 months ago I actually came across a GD at the wreckers that looked like a complete time warp. Looked like it had the original paint, panels were all perfect, interior was like a new car. If I had the money and space for another car I probably would've made an offer for the whole thing and saved it.

  16. Guys, I am really frustrated with my car. I am so fed up with this VCG issue that I am ready to sell the the car. Everything about the car is in great working shape and I would love to keep it as a daily driver but I am ready to smash it with a sledge. its an 01 with the 2.5. I have changed the VCG's four times in the last 2 years. They continue to leak oil on the headers and if I drive the car more than an hour it smokes so bad that it looks like a camp fire is burning under the hood. The car leaks about a quart of oil every 400 miles. I have done the VCG's by the book the last two times. I used new gaskets I bought off ebay, put RTV in the places the manual says to and torqued the bolts to spec. I even tried a different RTV the last time and swtiched from red to black. What could I be doing wrong? Is this something a dealer should be able to figure out? I cant imagine it is common for the covers to warp, is it?
  17. While it was drying I gave the paint some TLC. Sure it was shiny but the paint was dirty the water was yellow even after 4 passes. I also started to fix some of the paint damage. Hoping tomorrow is good I'm going to bring out the polish. Is now: This looks bad. It left a small dent Now: After the clay bar:
  18. Interior is all one color and matches, apart from the steering wheel.
  19. #Yankees won. Bummer! At least the #RedSox are gone. C'mon #Astros kick some pinstripe tail!!!!!

  20. I did the front seats with vinyl dye, they are drying. They are meant to be black but the factory dye fades to blue as you can see with passenger seat. I did the rear ones with dye when I put them in a fair while back. Finally it now has a color matched interior. Not really bothered that the materials don't quite match on the drivers seat as it didn't cost me a cent to do where as I'd have to go junk yard hunting and usually doors are off and/or window are down which means the weather and animals can get in.... seat covers never fit properly and to me look terrible - I did try them and within a week they were gone. The steering wheel is crumbling. I'd like something different, I like the neo chrome horn ring so that's happening. I still have my old SAAS (cheap) Steering wheel but I like the split spokes of these ones cant decide between silver gold or black for the spokes.
  21. Qustion about these hoses

    If it goes to the turbo it is probably either oil or coolant cooling lines going to the intercooler, I don't know for sure though because I own an N-A 2.0
  22. '98 626 Chump Racer!

    WOW!! Really sorry to see this. Glad the driver was able to walk away with no injuries. That looks like a HUGE hit. Hope you guys can find something and get back out on track soon.
