    S1 CB2 626 TWR option for sale - US eBay

    Houndstooth was never an option in the 626s. Definitely aftermarket fitment. This car could have been optioned up in the US, under license from TWR UK, hence the difference to the UK original.
  2. I am not 100% positive that it is fully original as stated - the original TWR spoiler did not look like this and was colour coded to the car https://www.ebay.com/itm/1979-Mazda-626-Montrose-2000-TWR-Coupe-Look-/401566713185?_mwBanner=1&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F0%2F0%2F0%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F401566713185%26rvr_id%3D0%26rvr_ts%3D96e5234c1640a9cb254148cffff6e60d&ul_noapp=true The spoiler certainly does not look like the one below.

    S2 CB2 626 For Sale in California

    You're right. It's gone. Too good to hang around for long!

    1979 626 in Beverly Hills!

    Stick a V8 in it like this one but keep it sleeper spec on the outside! That's 5.0L injected Aussie motor in Luke's one. That should get people's attention over there!

    Try not to ruin it too much, please!!!!! Sorry, I am biased about cars retaining their exterior originality! As soon as I see Boso cars I think of this.
  7. I have reached a milestone!!! For some of you "power" posters on this forum, it probably came and went a very long time ago. Still, just thought I'd share, given now this post will take me to 627!

    Shocks & Struts

    Fronts are nothing like the ones from Amazon. The difference between very early chassis code and later chassis code. Up to CB2MS- 543789 - has a longer strut insert. After CB2MS- 543880 - is slightly shorter. These are the rears.

    Jets for a MA

    I seriously recommend taking it in and getting it tuned on a dyno, but before you go, you want to track down more jets or make sure the shop has parts and knows how to tune old school. Sadly, most shops hate dyno tuning carbies because it is so labour intensive. I can tell you that on my Edelbrock 650cfm carby fed 13B bridgeport, I have spent a grand on dyno tuning because there is no data for the conversion, and I can still get more power with more development and dyno time.

    Is the MA reliable

    Hey mate, get on to the RX626 FB page. Aussie page and it's for any RWD 626. Heaps of stuff available in QLD!

    Is the MA reliable

    Depends on its age. How its been maintained. Whether you live in a country where you can find parts easily. They are a low performance, reliable engine, that will run and run providing you keep supplying water, oil and fuel on a regular basis! Their idiosyncrasies include but are not limited to: - Leak oil around the rocker cover gaskets and half moon seals. - Oil bypasses the valve stem seals - hence nice puffs of blue smoke if left idling too long, or sometimes just lots of blue smoke all the time! - They do have a tendency, if left sitting in storage for long periods, to corrode and then leak from the welch (core, freeze or frost) plugs. - Blow the head gasket between no 3 and 4 cylinder due to poor maintenance.

    Rust Repair Advice

    I saw that one too, BUT, seeing the 8239 P/No threw me, and I could not find a cross reference to it. My Aussie spec S2 Mazda Parts Catalogue (Apr 83 edition) shows the prefix as a GA06-70-750, and my Japanese S2 Mazda Parts Catalogue (Jan 84 edition) shows it as a G001-70-750. Go figure on the part numbers when they are the same!
