    Title Issues!

    I don't know if what Zed found is the system I know of but there is a way to search for a VIN to make sure it hasn't been reported stolen. It's not too hard to register a car here if it's 30yrs old Plus.

  3. I am not positive this car will have it because it's automatic but it is apparently a turbo according to the VIN https://www.copart.com/lot/23979129

    Limited slip in California

    All good questions. I don't remember there being an engine picture but the VIN indicates it should be a turbo. I am unsure if all the turbo cars got LSD's in that year range

    Title Issues!

    If you decide not to pursue this car PM me. I would be interested in looking at it
  6. About the only thing you'll find in that range is a parts car. I have seen some really basket cases bring more than that lately. Good luck

    Too far away for me but someone might be closer that has an interest

    I have a vlsd out of a Shiro and a CLSD. You are correct. The swap is not a problem as long as you have the Shiro half shafts. They are very different on the differential end. I dont know how to verify on the Shiro or not. The wheels and the white paint look like it. The diff should have a small VLSD tag on one of the cover bolts

    They tend to move some when they cross the block. Sometimes surprisingly so

    This car is in Calgary. Probably a lot of good parts. The car looks pretty clean and well cared for. At least until impact https://www.copart.com/lot/39659858 @wheee! @zKars

    Welding hat not dimming

    My Viking 1840 series auto dimming helmet decided to not work today. Any ideas on the best way to try to diagnose it? @Captain Obvious @grannyknot
  16. I don't believe they would make these numbers on BaT

    Welding hat not dimming

    I priced it. They are about $150. I can almost buy a new hat for that! I watched a you tube video where he got into the ADF and the 3v batteries are evidently soldered in. He reworked it but it still didn't fix his helmet. I would try to replace the batteries but don't want to waste my time. I am wondering if it's in the switch. I wonder if I could come up with a way to bypass the switch. I suspect it is a rheostat

    Cody's Goon

    We bought a 72 510 wagon for my son about a two years ago. It had been hit on the front right and it took us a while to get that straightened out. Lots of pulling, shrinking and welding We rebuilt the hood out of two different hoods there are some more pictures of this on the forum, but I don't know where... We are changing the cars color from an Ivory type color to one of the factory orange colors. Last weekend we pulled the hatch and started reworking it but there was some bondo on there, so that required a good bit of metal work and even after that there is still a lot of filler on the panel I will try to post up some more picture tomorrow

    Where to go with this rusthole

    I did some searching on this a while back. I have a sway bar thread. I settled on the ST sway bars. I think they are the cleanest mounting system with good reviews.

    What is the recommended sealer for the case halves? I thought about aviation gasket maker. the brown sticky stuff. Also should the plugs get a sealer? What kind?

    Front strut cartridge removal

    That is correct. Gland nut and corrosion. I would heat the whole tube then add some penetrating oil. You will be hard pressed to damage the strut with MAP gas.
