HOYS' ST185 Res-Q

Postby hoys » Tue Aug 22, 2017 12:51 pm

Making a thread for this car as there was a good bit of interest in following it.

Vehicle picked up from member gab on 8/21/2017 and trailered to TGA Performance in Colorado Springs, CO. I live in SW Ohio. One way flight booked to CO this Friday 8/25/2017 to meet up with the car and get it road worthy again.

Some pictures from gab and initial pickup:

* Replace all fluids

* Clean rodents
* Drive back to Ohio

* rinse it off

That interior looks amazing, and the rest of it looks unmolested. Definitely keep us posted on how things go with it.

Finally saw the car in person today. The car is in even better shape in person.

Took the intercooler off, pulled the plugs, scoped the bores, looked at the turbo. Everything looks decent. Car has wheels locks so I have to figure that out. No keys in sight.

Tomorrow trying to get the car to turn over and run. Most likely will have to replace the fuel pump before it runs.

Got the car up and running! All we needed to do was drop the gas tank, drain the old gasoline, and put a new fuel pump in as the unit in the car wasn't responding. Once out of the car and connected directly to a fresh 12v source, the old pump jumped back to life. We put the new unit in for good measure.

After running the old gas out of the system we idled the car for 30 minutes. The coolant system held pressure and the coolant fans worked, the A/C still blew cold and all the lights worked. Who knows how to reset the SEC (urity?) error on the radio?

Either the timing idler or tensioner made noise when the engine speed was around 1,500 RPM. Not inspiring for me to drive the car 1,100 miles home. Ended up getting plane tickets back to Ohio and contacting a transporter to bring the car here to finish the rehabilitation of the vehicle. Timing set, new tires, new fluids, we will be good to go!

Here are some pictures of it cleaned up:

Man that looks clean under all that dust!

Am I seeing things or did the US model ST185s have a different bumper to the rest of the world?

Update!

I haven't had much time to work on the car, but I've been doing small things.

Put my 7th gen wheels on. Its nearly impossible to find the proper size tire for 15"s any more. These wheels fit the look but not the right offset in the rear. They will work for now.

Gave the car an even better bath and clay bar. I'm trying different waxes and sealants to see what the paint likes. The car will surely need a good buff as there are a few scratches here and there.

Bled the brakes, car stops well.

I bought all of the timing components and will be changing all of those over next week. Can't wait to drive this going into fall!
