    If having a 76 Chalet and a 79 K5 wasn't enough....we are buying a 90 V20 Burb tomorrow for my wife...the Honda was fine until our lil one was born 6 months ago...

    Found it saturday by accident behind a guys barn..fresh paint..tires...red/silver...full power..to include the rare power mirrors...needs some minor work...dash vents...speedo inop..oil psi gauge done...and a rattle in the motor's bottom end when first fired up for a couple seconds...350 TBI..TH400...$4K.

    Looks like i got more problems than i bargined for...trans has a glitch also...no 3rd. At least a TH400 is cheaper to build than a TH700R4. CEL comes on...code 24..no vss by the scanner...so i'll buy me a vss...needs shocks...dead oem's on her...to dark to take pics...tomorrow. Will go look at that web site Mark.

    You suck! I have been looking for one for a month! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Get rid of that cheap oil filter. Put a AC filter on it. the drain back valve in the oil filter isn't working. The oil is draining back through the filter and the oil pump and sucking the oil right out of the bearings. Should get rid of most of that start up knock.
    Check the plug on the fire wall and the ground cable behind the passengerside head for your electrical gremlins.

    Congrats. As soon as I find the right one I'll be in the club as well. I found a 88 that has 71k on it and about as clean as they get. Just don't like the blue over white two tone paint, the drop gate and no privacy windows. If it had the barn doors I would buy it. I have one I'm looking at that has the doors and glass and even a sunroof. Hope to go see it Saturday. If it's a POS I may just buy this 88. I really can't go wrong with it. It's been taken well care of.

    Grimy...don't even know what oil filter is on it...it came home with the cel on...so i left it running...hooked up my trusty snap-on scanner...code 24...VSS...never fear..this kid won't run out and buy a new vss...i do electrical gremlns for a living...start by ohming vss for open and go from there...lol. Point being...it took 3.5 quarts trans fluid...still has no 3rd gear...and anything more than slight throttle application nets a in and out kick down...guess weare gonna pull her out...and yes...i stock nothing but ac delco oil filters in my garage...but i haven't had the time to do anything but take pics of her on my way out to work today.

    Didn't get comp's shipped today...my bad. Got involved in some real pains today at the shop....trans day today...lol.

    Congrats Doug! She'll love it.........my wife finally drove my beast this week down on vacation at the beach..........first time drivers of a Burb on a 6" lift and 35's are scary..........we were on the beach (literally) though so plenty of room to get used to the behemoth. Only thing she had to worry about running into was the ocean or the dunes - 1/4 mile apart. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Careful Frank! A short time after I bought the '94 Sub, I let my wife drive it for a few days. That was over 4 years ago... /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif She wouldn't give it up for anything! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
