4000KQ CV Boot & TQC
Just picked up my faithful '87 4KQ from my local neighborhood mechanic
who did and oil and filter change for me. While it was on the hoist he
discovered that the right front CV boot was torn. We'll put a new on
this Friday. Problem: this will be CV boot #4 for the right front
wheel. Memory and a quick look at my service records indicate that the
other wheels are still living with their original boots. The car had
right side wheel bearings done about 25,000 miles ago (front & rear).
Other than possibly poorly made boots or improper instalation, anything
else I should look for>
Item #2, Bill McCarthy in Halifax, nova Scotia has an '83 TQC for sale.
In a recent posting he said that the car was Eurospec. I've sent Bill a
post directly asking him what that means. anyone in a position to give
me a better than average guess about what that means AND whether or not
that car might meet US standards for lights, brakes, bumpers, etc. I'm
really not in the mood to tackle the bureaucracy to get the car US certified.
THanks. Looking forward to your replies
