I received the radiator from RockAuto today. First Denso replacement I've ever bought. I like it.

I've noticed when in park the P light and D light are both illuminated. I'm expecting something to be burnt on the TCU board. It shifts great just those lights both light up.

I'll pull the TCU sometime soon and see what's burnt. Been through this several times before. At least this time I'm not experiencing any issues.

I've got my vacation scheduled. Not next week but the week after I'm going to work 3 days and be off for 4 days. Work Monday, Tuesday, Wendsday then off Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Three weeks in a row for my vacation, another week for my two sick days and one more week for my employee of the month award and for these things called Davidson dollars. So I have 5 weeks straight where I'm only going to work 3 days a week and get paid for the other two.

This will allow me to get stuff done with my cars. Which is why I'm making mention of it.

I drove the car a little more than usual today, looked down and seen the temp was at almost 40*F!



Took a trip to Orscheln and got antifreeze and oil.

Drained the radiator. Changed the oil. Removed the dowpipe. Only one nut was a bitch, I was surprised.

Bought some more parts. From RockAuto as always.

Anchor driver side motor mount. Wholesaler closeout for $7.00!
Bando power steering belt
Bando alternator & A/C belt
MAS sway bar end links
Moog sway bar to frame bushings
And a Standard PCV valve.

$52.79 shipped.

Tomorrow I will get the new downpipe on. I've got a new hanger to go with it.

I will also get the radiator replaced tomorrow.

I'm going to try to get the brake pads and brake master cylinder replaced next week. I still have some things I need to do to the Talon. Kinda dividing up my time between the two.

Today I got the new Bosal downpipe in along with the new Denso radiator and Stant 180* thermostat.

Bosal downpipe went in awesomely. Can't believe how well they engineered this thing. Getting it to go in took a little bit of finesse and if it wasn't designed almost perfectly it wouldn't have went in.

Test drove it. Filled the tank. Put 17 miles on it. All is well.

Just purchased a used replacement passenger side outer tail light. The current one is cracked and has mold and water in it.

Also purchased 4 bottles of OEM ATF. I noticed today while replacing the radiator that the transmission fluid was a little dark. I've also noticed that the transmission shifts a little harsh in the lower gears. It has a bad driver side motor mount which I have a replacement on the way already and that should fix it. But the transmission fluid drain and fill won't hurt anything either.

I also got 10 white LED 194 type bulbs for the corner lights and license plate lights. I always have liked a 92/93 CB with nice clean plate lenses with white LED bulbs. Looks clean.

Order from RockAuto arrived today. I don't know if I messed up the order or they did or just what happened with the front sway bar end links. But I also don't care. One side will be red the other black. Doesn't matter to me as it's only a daily.

Sway bar end links, sway bar to frame bushings, PCV valve, and driver side motor mount.



Oh, and the LED 194 type bulbs arrived as well.

Oh and this thing is now leaking fuel. I can smell it in and outside of the car. Don't know where it's coming from yet.

I'm hoping it's just fuel injector seals/o-rings and not the fucking fuel lines underneath. If it's the fuel lines I'm selling it.

Will update when I find out where the fuel smell is coming from.

Raf99 is very helpful Raf99 is very helpful
Great updates! Must be night and day difference with the muffler repaired. As for the fuel line, that sucks. Ya usually end up replacing the whole line or doing a compression fitting.

Thanks!

Yeah... it's not the injectors, the filter or anything under the hood.

I haven't looked yet but I assume it's the lines.

Hopefully, it's just the rubber return line hose from the fuel rail bring cracked, one of the rubber lines at the tank end being cracked, the drain plug for the tank being loose.

Man, you go through these CB's like no one's business!

I found a wet spot on my driveway when I came home today. I think it's a rubber hose coming from the tank. Which I can deal with.

I guess I do. Just always turns out that way.

Bought an ABC marine fire extinguisher with bracket. Figured it was a good idea. Especially with the exhaust leak.




How it sits. Putting the new NAPA alternator on tomorrow.

Put the new alternator in and everything is good! Glad it wasn't anything more complicated.

Glad the Bosal pipe worked out for you. I had trouble with one for the A6 engine. The pipes were thinner walled and smaller diameter than OEM and didn't fit well. I purchased one from Walker that seemed to match OEM better.
