Re: What wheels are on this car?

Will any of them hold air? I would start there just to make life easier, if it starts & can move or just roll around big deal

Re: Seized t engine

I don’t know that much about the T transmissions yet, but if the band material had been damp and swelled up could be dragging on all the drums and causing lock-up? Similar to the shift fork...

Re: Rear Springs U bolts

Re: Oil in intake ports

Re: Vacuum Gauge (new)

My Hastings gauge has a stud on the back easy to mount and my dash had a perfect spot for it. I even look at it occasionally while running, but temps are my concern.

Re: Exhaust Noise - Legislation - SEMA

My late solverodo is a tiny 3.0, uses DEF. Never smelled it, can’t see it, avg. 26 mpg. Yanks the trailer along good, no reason to piss with me. But somebody will.
