      Nice. I've got mine around here somewhere. My GL Sport was in the low to mid 9K range tho.

      Definitely the fuel pump relay. New ones can be had fairly easily at places like autohausaz.com or rockauto.com

      Also, I took a dead relay and taped the contacts closed. I use it for testing fuel...

      Didn't get to the muffler, but did replace the right ball joint that had been slowly achieving two-ness. Why is it that whenever the Bentley says "Installation is the reverse of removal" what it...

      We have a separate forum for classified ads, so expect this thread to get moved there sooner or later. :)

      Yeah, I like the Tarantulas. The sedan in front is a GL Sport which I bought new, so I paid $500-ish for the Tarantulas, the 4 button GTI-style steering wheel, and the 5 speed tranny. It is...

      Bought this Fox for $500 in 2008. It had about 250k miles on it. I've put another 150K+ on it since then. Not a bad investment......

      Wow, I quit hanging out on the 'tex and next thing I know Ric is selling off his stash. Sad day indeed.

      If I had the cash I'd take it and find good homes for 'em all.

      Rough running when cold is likely either the coolant temp sensor or a vacuum leak. Neither is a big deal. :) GLWS

      Sounds like your problem is getting resolved, Marcelo. And yes, we did get that model here in the US, where it was known as the Dasher coupe. They're rare as hen's teeth, tho.

      Sorry, this was all on the main pump. Thanks for the ideas, good to know for next time. I ended up jacking up the wagon, disconnecting the main pump, pulling the lead out a bit, and connecting my...
