New 165 owner in the PacNW

Pacific Northwest Areas

Postby chkpnt » Thu Aug 14, 2008 5:49 am

Right now I just want the car to run, which is turning into way more of a headache than I previously thought.


Hahahaha... You are a new Alltrac owner... Mine has been parked since last September but should be on the road soon. It's only been a whole year. The most important tool you can have is patience with these cars. They can be a real P.I.T.A. to work on and are usually fussy when they aren't broken. Oh, and they are an electrical nightmare. Let me know if you need some help... I've ripped mine apart. Twice.

I'd love to take a look at what you're working on one of these days. When you say shop, do you have a business? Were those pictures taken at the Arlington airport? I might be coming down to the Pull-A-Part in the next month or so...

LOL.............yeah this car is a huge pain in the ass to work on.

::Update::

I got a motor in the car last night/tonite, I am dead set on driving this thing before the weekend, this car would be impossible to work on without a lift:

(ignore the way the turbo is mounted, too tired to fix it)

Yes I work with the guys at JMI Motoring in Arlington, here's some of the work we have done in the past:

Sorry I threw everything away, I'll make sure to post the future unneeded parts before I throw them away.


Did you throw away the AC stuff too?
I'm looking for a few AC things...


Yeah I did, I still have to disect everything behind the dash, if your looking for anything back there.

Does anyone need red all-trac power doors?

what I need:
-Rear Bumper
-Alternator
-Radiator
-Intercooler ECU

^That's too bad for me :doh:
I don't need any of the behind the dash stuff, thanks though.
BTW, nice job on the headlight conversion, it looks great :)

Wish I had a lift :( My car has been sitting for a year and a half this stretch, but it's sat as long as about 3 years once before.

Good to know there's another decent shop in the area though.

Thanks,

My conversion uses all OE equipment right now, I'm thinking about simplifing it even more and making it 100% custom. It would require me making a mold, to make the covers out of FRP. Then I would be able to sell them to the 165 comunity as kits.

The car is super close to running, everyone keep their fingers crossed.

I prefer the flip ups, but I bet a lot of the guys would like a conversion kit. The car looks meaner with it, if you know what I mean.

Yeah, I kind of like the nostalgic look of the flip ups, we did the conversion to get some unneeded weight off the front end.
