Thanks. Itís many time constraints. Working full time having a family and doing the reserves takes about 99 percent of my time so when I get a full day off I try to ER as much done as I can. I really want to get it at least running and driving. Then I can work on little things and make it better. The 93 has tabk doesnít mount up to the stock location but it fits and itís an easy fix, just need to redrill the hole in the tank and it will mount up to the 88 frame. Figured out the injector is what is making the knocking noise and causing the fuel starvation issue. Going to replace the injectors with the ones off the 93 and rewire the harness for the 93 injector connnectors. Hopefully by next week it will be running and driving. Iíll post more pictures and hopefully a video soon.

Turns out the injectors where bad. It revs up now. But either has a loose cam cap or something is loose in the clutch or tranny. Still trying to figure out where the knocking noise is coming from. Had to modify 93 injectors and TPS to work with the old wiring. Hopefully itís not a rod knock but if it is Iíll have to start on the 3.4 turbo motor Iím building to put in it. Thatís one way to move the project along.

Found the noise.

Pulled the trans. Got the stripped bolt out and put the trans back in in under 2 hours. Kinda proud of myself.

Picked up another 3.4 complete for 150 bucks. Guy said it needs a head job so Iíll tear it down and see what it needs. But once I get the firewall repainted ill start on building the 3.4 turbo motor I want to put back into the 88. Then basically start from the front and move back fixing the things I want to fix and turn this rough 88 into a nice looking mug bogger.

New 3.4

Got the new 3.4 torn apart. Found some bad exhaust valves. Going to be replacing the valves and then Iíll be able to put the motor back together.

Update

stripped the interior to fix some rust issues. Finishing up the rust repair on the body. 3.4 is coming together nicely. Working in doing the f250 rear tank swap once the tank comes in.

Got the new 89 running today. But it would only run on break cleaner. Pulled the fuel pump and found some lovely rust and also the fuel line was disconnected at the fuel filter and that was also missing. Going to drain the tank and put an extra fuel pump I have laying around in it and see if that fixes it. Also bought a stud welder dent puller and going to start pulling the roof and A pillar. Already got the fender back to semi straight. So far thereís hope this girl will once again be in the road. Definitely sooner than the 88. Waiting for my crx turbo kit and wiring harness to put it together. Updates to come.
