    A/C pump belt useful?

    Good morning. 89 744ti. My A/C has been converted since I have owned it, and it has never worked. Seems to be frozen, since an attempted refill of R-134 would not even take. Unimportant, since I am in NH and rarely need it. Does anything else run from that pump? I was thinking of removing the...

    m46 O/D + reverse lights

    Been skimming search for this OD problem long enough. I can assume it is relay, as it worked fine on Sunday, then no work on Monday. Also, seemingly congruent, the reverse lights do not work. According to the fuse panel, both on the same fuse. Fuse #13. However, it is fine, no problem. Checked...

    ugh. help name a fuel tank component

    I am looking for the name of the part on top of the fuel tank that all the hoses and lines connect to. I have developed a fuel seepage in this area, it looks as though the metal has all become pourous in the area, and a scent of fuel, and some minor drops have developed as a result. I would have...

    a/f rich, advance timing?

    89 744ti. I installed the a/f meter, and as I suspected under full throttle, the browntops help me to run rich. If I advance my timing a bit, will I be able to lean this out somewhat, into the "ideal" range, to maximize the fuel burn for increased power, but to the high end of ideal to keep...

    Help, please. 89 744 ti O2 sensor signal/ground

    1989 744 ti, B230FT, O2 sensor connection. Which of the two wires between the computer and the connector is the signal wire? One is brown, the other green. They connect to O2 sensor connector, which is two white wires. The suggestion for hooking up a/f meter is between computer and connector, so...

    computer music assist?

    Is there any way to link a song to OT? Or can it only be vids? I cannot add the media file to my vid host, I was going to link it that way. It made me laugh, I thought I'd share, but I'm not able to find a way to put it on the web. Thanks. Bob **EDIT** Can we guess why I'm unable to do this? I...

    Performance clutch for 744 M46?

    I have attempted a week of searching here, and tried a few sites I found, but I cannot find an upgraded clutch for my 1989 744 turbo. I would rather not just go stock since it may not take the extra boost. I think I read on here somewhere stock should be good for 250 HP, but mine was 150k old...

    ABS light on, speedometer stopped working

    I did some searcing, and found nothing that seemed similar, so here we go. 1989 744ti, M46 4 spd with o/d. The ABS light came on, then the speedo started fluctuating all over the place. I stopped, turned off the car, started again, ABS light still out. Put it into gear, started to go forward...

    Yellowing headlights? This seems to work...

    Before.. After Meguire's Plastx clear plastic cleaner and polish I am aware these are not my headlights, but these are the only evidence photos available. :-P This is only a marginal application-my father in law had some in a sample pack left over after using it for what it is made for...

    Helllllllllppppp! (sson, please, before dark)

    Will the 89 B230ft run if distributor is installed 180 degrees off? I figured it wouldn't, but this super high idle (2500) is odd. No vacuum leaks I can find. It may just be liking the new cap, but I don't think that could account for this one. I am going to disconnect and reconnect the IAC...

    Pre-distributor replacement concern

    Yesterday did NOT go well. Tried one of the more simple tasks in life, dist cap and rotor replacement. Broke the rotor, that was a first, and when I got the new one on, I managed to pinch and sever a wire from the Hall sensor. This was determined when I could not start the car. So, I took the...

    better view of red dash lights

    Okay, for those who thought they may have been a bit dark in my post on turbo gauge faces, I was fiddling with my digicam tonight, trying the exposure settings. I got it better this time, so it shows a better idea of their visibility. These are regular incandescent, not LED.

    Own a 7xx? Keep your original boost gauge!

    Okay, I have been attempting this for awhile, finally took the time to complete it. I ordered a new gauge face from Dave Barton with numbers replacing the sweep gauge. This is my results. I am not posting in entirety, his instructions provided were primo. This is original dash. Obviously, duh...

    Door won't open!

    The drivers side rear door of my 89 744 t will not open. The latch moves in and out, but nothing unlatches on the inside. I was told this will involve forcible and very ugly removal of the handle, and replacement of same, just to get in to diagnose it. I chose not to have this done, but am still...

    Thread deletion?

    Once I have started a thread, such as pics or vids, can I then delete it after a time to help save space here? I was thinking the ones I posted last weekend would be a good example. I figure a week is long enough for that, and I'd like to remove them. Or do the admins have to do that? Bob

    Short vids on the ride

    Had to do this myself, one handed, while shifting and steering. In the one through the windshield, you can here a slight slip, which is where my boost overpowered my clutch. :grrr: The other two were taken when I turned it down a turn. Still plenty of boost. This is a twisty road, and my first...

    Went for a cruise today.....

    And here is what I came across. It had ended just before I got there, some nice rides, don't hate on the Honda-his is a tragic story. He has a back seat FULL of trophy's, but couldn't even place, because he has a Honda. He does well at import shows, but not the classic shows. Go figure. So I...

    t3erms and abreviations?

    terms and abreviations? Augh. :grrr: A little help here-there used to be some sort of terms, abreviations, or definitions of common words on here, and no searching of any of those words will turn it up. Such as-NWS? No idea what it means, so I wanted to look it up. Any idea where it went? Thanks.

    Board controllers/moderators...

    I am (slowly) figuring out items on here, I don't use computers much so it takes time, a year before I figured out how to make the avatar fit, but I wanted to make sure this sig, if it worked, is not too much of a RAM hog, or too slow/big for systems. EDIT: This is actually resized. Not as...
