    A343f trans for sale

    Have 2 auto trans for a 95 80 series cruiser, they are core trans in my mind. One is missing the tq converter, and reverse doesn't work at all, think it's a VB or clutch material problem. 2nd one has a slight slip on the 1-2 shift, it worked well till i supercharged the rig and tried to tow a...

    Headlight retainer relay, parking lights problem?

    I have a problem with no ground to the taillight control relay. It causes the relay not to turn on. As far as I can tell it is switched by the column switch ( checks out OK) and this unknown relay called the headlamp retainer. I believe that this relay is the root of no ground to the...

    Rebuild front calipers? or rebuilt ones?

    I need to rebuild the front axle and the front brakes need attention, rotors are warped, yet the pads are OK. When I slapped some pads in there and packed the wheel bearings one piston on one caliper went in hard. Yesterday I test compressed the offending piston and it was OK, yet the rubber...

    A343 trans 1-2 shifting slowly/mushy

    My 95 has slowly developed a slow/ mushy shift between 1-2 and some times when hard on the throttle it will slip for 1.5 sec and then hit kinda hard into gear. If it was a Cadillac I would think it was normal sloppy shifting. I tightened the TV cable and that firmed up the other shifts but not...

    Evans waterless coolant?

    Just for querosity has anyone used this stuff? check out evanscooling.com and do a google search. I know that the factory system is the way to go, but with a blower and high temps under the hood it might make sense. I figure that most will give it the thumbs down, but has anyone have any...

    Heated throttle body necessary?

    Just a random thought about an upcomming project. Is it truly required for the throttle body coolant lines to be extended when installing the supercharger? If the coolant is 190* or so it effectively is preheating the intake air for the blower. I have seen this discussion on other vehicles...

    Exhaust camshaft gear and reassembly

    I have taken the head and camms out of my 95 for a new HG and reading ahead for the reassembly. I put a service bolt in the threaded hole on the exhaust cam as the FSM states when I took it apart, however I don't think that it really was necessary. I seems to keep the 2 halves of the gear...
