At last report I was screaming I need to install two new cats, since it
had failed smog twice. Well with two new cats it will not ruin the
Calif. air any more, got the clean bill of health yesterday. ONe of the
cats was pluged about 60% and the other about 40% ( think it will run
any better?) While in for tune up my mech. found that the drain plug was
loose and leaking, seems some where in the cars previous life some moron
had lost the original drain plug and replaced it with one the wrong
diameter (25mm vs 26m). I was scared to death I was going to have to
replace the oil pan.
Now on to the leaking high pressure hose for the power steering and the
spastic oil warning light. THese come before a laundry list of grips
that we noted on the 24hr drive from Tulsa,OK .
I figure the car is a two year project to get it where I want it, most
of this is just waiting for the funds for the project.
Thanks for the input from the folks on the list
