      I am sorry for your loss; but, I have to point out the irony of the situation. You want to bring the cabby back to life to replace a car that got mowed over by an SUV? Please make your cabby happy....

      My o-ring for the t-stat housing didn't exactly hold it in place, but no leaks there. I made sure before I replaced my coolant. I just figured a bead of rtv sealant in place of the o-ring would do...

      Visit cabby-info.com for what fits. At my local junkyard the cars are left with the top down, so seeking interior pieces is stupid. I'm doing my own upholstery, if I can. I've read it a million times...

      Like paper templates? I used a couple doorcards I pulled off of my car, tore the fabric off of them, and traced it on the board I'm using for my new ones.

      My car runs good, I didn't really notice a difference. I'm no expert or anything on those valves though, or any of this vacuum bull****. Mine use to have A/C, but that might be irrelevant. So anyway...

      Replace your valve cover gasket with a rubber one from germanautoparts.com. Second picture I don't even know if that's your power steering pump or not, but I'm afraid I'm no help there anyhow.
