1988 Alltrac st165 leaking coolant head gasket?

Postby Anoo21 » Fri Aug 26, 2011 11:50 pm

Just bought a st165 from tspoon off celicatech and I fell in love. I was wanting a st185 but with all the extra things that came with the car and price I couldn't resist. With every trac comes its problems.
-The fan is hardwired do the sensors/thermostat go out or even relays?
-Bushings and subframe mounts are going out. I am going to be ordering some from mario in a few weeks. Easy to do? any pointers?
-Clutch..my friend and I will be doing that so I think that should be ok.
-the sunroof does not sit flat? One of the rear sides of the sunroof sits up about a half inch. Any suggestions?

Other than that nice clean and should be a nice weekender compared to the daily integra.

Alrighty first off I wanna thank Tspoon for the help. Just decided to do some minor things today particularly the brakes. Then a trim piece broke off :frown: i will take a pic of that later hopefully its an easy fix to find the clips to put it back on. Tried to fix the sunroof but thats for another day. Enjoy the pics I will keep everyone posted.

Just gave her the car wash she needed but now to the things i might have a problem doing. here are two pictures, one i am missing the clips to hold on the frame/bezel/trim piece and idk where to get one or what i should do. secondly the sunroof has a "lift" only on one side and i cannot figure out why and plus it does not slide only tilts. Any ideas? Either way the clutch job and rear diff should be in the works within the next month :no: thats not gonna be fun. i will keep everyone posted

:wiggle:Finalliy bought the clutch yayyy. Stage 3, 6 puck should be installed in the car in about 2 weeks. Just wanted to put some pictures of it on here. Slowly but steadily it is coming together.

P.S. My gf's gonna buy me a paintjob :wiggle::bananarider: Now thats awesome but she said she has to pick the color :blink: dont worry i told her no Pink lol.

Well I got the clutch and was so ready to pull the engine and trans but then decided the clutch was actually really really good grabbing. Went ahead and held that off for now and cleaned the car up a little with the other things wrong :/

Got to the garage getting ready
Image

Hoods up work starts
Image

Took the undercover off was crappy anyway looks cleaner too
Image

Looks way cleaner :laugh:
Image

had to fix my window switch just had bad connectors( my gf is happy now to roll down her own window) :wiggle:
Image

Tried to get the fog lights working but there is a problem getting the power to the fogs :no:
Image

Alright next post should be for the diff. or differential mount :wiggle:

First off I would like to say thank you to my friend Richard S. for welding the diff mount. Feels amazing :bananarider: Alright started the day with fixing boost leaks major MAJOR boost leaks. Anyone know besides at the stealership where i can get the rubber connector, connecting the intercooler to the throttle body? Lets get started with the pictures.

UP UP you go lol
Image

Supported everything
Image

Diff is out :) ( was easy actually :laugh: )
Image

Before aka crappy
Image

My good friend welding a solid piece of metal instead of the rubber :amuse:
Image

Grind grind grind make it look pretty
Image

All pretty and solid( will show a picture of the finished product installed soon)
Image

**Note when putting a mount back on it is WAY WAY easier to bolt the mount onto the subframe first then the diff then bolt the diff back up. :amuse:

The goats decided to help :laugh:
Image

So amazing to have the back tight and no CLUNKS haha. If anyone wants it done my friend says he might be able to do them for a charge. Located in Gig harbor, wa or just pm me. Now i can boost and wont have to worry about the rear end falling out on me lol. Will keep you guys updated on other things.

My fans are screwed up too , they worked fine and then started this coming on and off erratically crap. So I pulled the plug at the bottom of the radiator which makes them full run time. Better in summer anyway with as hot as these little bitches get under the hood. Havent dug into the wiring but I'm betting its a problem there. I tried relays and different switches already and no dice ... BTW ... nice wheels :P

I love those wheels on my car , brother has them on his too. Mods ... god the list is massive ... if the starter mod isnt done already thats a good one to do so it doesnt strand you and wont crank when the engine is hot ...

Not really sure , still running factory gauge. It seems to release most everytime I let off throttle reguardless of how many psi it builds ... guess i got a lead foot :)

The sunroof can be adjusted to level it out.

Ive never adjusted one that was or even seen one but I know some are and it would be obvious ... some have a " hard " and " soft " setting .... LOL ... sounds dirty but thats what I remember seeing on some of the postings when I was looking around for one ...
