It's so cold that even a hot car won't melt the snow.

Nope.  Robert Holtz.  See Jack and his white one on page 1.

Van, if you have the PFF version of PIP, I suggest you uninstall it and install Pat's version.  It seems to work much better without all the problems of the PFF version.  I don't know about the PFF version, but with ours you can post pictures on almost any other forum.

If you want to do an introduction of yourself in the General Fiero Discussion section, send the pictures to me and I'll put them into your post, then you can go back and edit for titles and descriptions of the pictures. 

I've already seen a preview of it, folks.  It's nice!

Better late than never.  Happy Birthay Ron768.  If I'd a knowed, I'd a baked you a cake. 

I've been trying to find images of a Cimmaron manual transmission.  The only thing I found that I could really make out was a 5-speed.  Essentially, it looked the same as our transmissions, but the gear levers were a little different, and it looked like the clutch release arm was down on the side so that it was actually attached to the clutch fork arm.  I also did a search for Cimmaron slave cylinders, and the one I found was more on the style of the Getrag, having no mounting studs.  It had what appeared to be about a 2 inch pushrod that just barely cleared the dust boot. 

I found this on  It's listed as a 5-speed Isuzu.

And this listed as the M19 4-speed.

Thanks everyone for your input.  I'm thinking that they're not a good source of a replacement transmission after all.  I was hoping they'd be pretty much a direct swap.

86GT 350 V8 and a Ford SUV met head-on.  Totaled the Fiero.  Driver suffered a slight bruise to his wrist.  His passenger had seat belt rash.  The SUV driver was put into a stabilization collar and transported to a hospital.  She was released that afternoon and went home.

I talked with Trinten on Friday to see how he was doing and what was happening surrounding the accident on Warwoman Road. 

He said he's fine, and so is the lady in the SUV.  She had been released the same day and other than maybe being a little sore, she was doing great.  No ill feelings on her part.  Insurance covered all expenses incurred by both parties.

Trinten and a friend recovered his Fiero from the tow yard and hauled it back to NC.  He has secured another Fiero and will be doing some modifications to the rear carriage of the wrecked car as he transfers it into the awaiting chassis.   

That does eliminate a possible source for headlight motors.  It does bring another question to mind and that is if the 4 cylinder engine long block is interchangeable with the Fiero Duke. 

I'd like to see a picture of a Cimmaron 4-speed transmission to see how the shift and slave cylinder are set up.

Robbie, you are a lifelong paid member.

Where did you go to see them? 

There is a series of lakes about 75 miles south of me.  They relocated Bald Eagles to the region and they did well, building their nests in the standing trees that were left in the lakebed area.  We used to fish a lot on those lakes and often saw Eagles flying, perched or even on their nest.  Within the past month, I heard on TV that there was only 1 remaining nesting pair of Bald Eagles in the whole state.  I find that hard to believe or comprehend.

TheraFlu is bad for you.  I don't remember why.

I just take a cup of hot herbal tea, and mix in honey (tablespoon), hot sauce (a few drops), salt (pinch), and lemon juice (teaspoon), then drink it and breathe in the vapors. 

I had a half gallon of Kahluah, 2 fifths of Jose Quervo and a 6 pack of Yuengling beer.  While Mel had the flu, I never caught it.  At least I don't remember getting it. 

You're correct.  the M17 was the Fiero V6 trans.  The MX6 appears to have been the same transmission in the Cimarron except gearing. Wonder if it was also used in the X11. 

The Cimarron also had a 4 cylinder engine and I would bet that was the 5-speed transmission.  Same setup as they had in the Fieros.  The Cimarron transmission just may be a stronger trans.
