Now going off on a tangent and speaking of the carb plungers... The front plunger on my HS-4 keeps unscrewing. I'll drive a few days and open the bonnet to find it unscrewed but still in the carb. I'

My 78 B had the same symptons. Changed the wheel cylinder and the problem moved to the other side. Changed that wheel cylinder and the problem went away. I think you did answer your own question. Goo

As an ebayer of about 60 purchases or so, I think the deals are there. It just takes patience, perseverence and the ability to walk away from anything that goes over what you feel is a good deal. It

Funny you should mention this. Nearly the same experience the other day with my 91 Saab 9000 with ABS. Only difference was a truck entering traffic, causing the car in front of me to slam on brakes.

I'm not sure on questions 1,2 and 4, but I do have an answer for #3. If the GT is the same as my roadster, I found that the easiest way to drain the tank was with a cheap hand-pump siphon (1/2" hose

I had a similar whine last summer--only showed up at steady engine speeds, especially idle. The first thing I did was check the belt. It felt fine. I then loosened the belt to check out the water pum

Strange thing this afternoon. I was out for a drive and had done about a half hour at average speeds (30-40 mph). I was slowing for a stop light and the engine just quit. Not a gradual loss of power,

When pushed up, it should stay on all the time. When down, it should only come on with the doors are open. It sounds like the switches probably needs some work on yours. It is pretty easy to disasse
