      Why do you need a 140amp alternator? You must have a large amount of stereo/elec. equipment in your C? Otherwise, it's a waste of money. I doubt you'll find one for a hundred dollars. Also, I...

      I agree, keep them a silver color. Clean them up real good and you might be surprised how well they turn out (dunno if you have tried yet), or you could sand them down (PIA) and repaint. Or better...

      Is this an auto or manual? You say you saw shift linkage moving, so I'm guessing your shifter works. Is this the same tranny that was in the car when you pulled the old motor, or did this come with...

      Can the ignition switch be causing this issue? I know they can cause some strange symptoms. Also check for connections at your ecu, my car had a no start condition and all I had to do was unlug...

      When my C was doing this, it was the gasket in the pump. I made my own gasket from a piece of sheet rubber I got at the hardware store. About 3 yrs later, still works great.

      It just pulls straight out, its a small lampholder that slides into the back of the reflector. They can be a bit snug, but if you have some flat needle nose pliers (duck bills) grab the edge and...

      I changed out my main water pump at a friends who has a lift. Of course the lift somehow got jammed and my car was stuck 4 ft in the air and it wouldn't come down, and only one side would go up, yay...

      I should have clarified a bit better, I am actually grinding down the glass on my replacement lenses, not modifying my housing. Grinding the glass down isn't too terrible, bit of a mess.

      You would have to modify the plastic fog surround for those lenses to fit, I'm working on the exact project right now, it's not that bad to grind down.

      Probably not your heater core as that would leak into the passengers side floor of the interior of the car, and fog up your windshield pretty good also. I'm really not sure what would be leaking out...

      That's good to hear, but if it still cuts out around right hand corners at 1/4 tankish, your pump still needs repair or replacement. Again, it was an easy fix for me.

      I had a similar problem with my C when I first got it, it would cut out around right hand corners at around a 1/4 tank or less. It ended up being the fuel pump, the pump motor sits in a housing and...
