I capped off some unused vacuum lines:

I'm not sure what those 2 bare wires are for.



Also, the line by the dogbone.

I pulled the coolant overflow tank today, although it wasn't dripping.  It was moist on the bottom, by the feed tube.  It had the wrong type of clamp.  I couldn't get the right clamp in the right size, so I adjusted the hose and tightened the clamp.  Then my son and I went for a drive.  About 90 miles.  I'm fairly sure everything on the car was warmed up.  I'll check for a puddle tomorrow.  The coolant is a bit low (I spilled some from the tank).

I think I'm going to have to adjust the TV cable.  Heck, I've got to replace it, anyway.  When the transmissions shifts, if I'm fully on the throttle, the engine hits the rev limiter twice, then shifts.  There is sometimes a slight hesitation about halfway through a gear on about half throttle.  I don't know why, yet.

After about 30 minutes' driving, the check engine light came on again, and stayed on for the duration of the ride.

It warmed up today.  A regular heat wave of 47 degrees.  The roads were clear and dry, do I went for a drive with my son.  We went looking for the twisties, but inevitable, there was some driver or other who took it upon themself to hold everyone below about half of the speed limit.

So, we rode through some subdivisions:




We got a lot of attention on the highway.  My son was having some fun with people pulling up alongside us.

That oxidation is easily rectified.

Going to sleep.  Maybe another time.

Sure, D'yer Maker

I missed the last few weeks, and had dozed off tonight.

Yeah, brrrh!  It's freezing out there.  It's easier to accumulate parts while it's cold, and work on the car while it's warm.  However, that is a good idea.  I have a new tank, so I'll just have to take that in.

Wow!  Other than some dirt on the cowl, that Fiero looks GREAT!  I wonder how the engine bay, frame rails, and the underside look?

General Fiero Discussion / Coolant feed tube info
« on: February 17, 2018, 07:21:30 PM »
Does anyone know the size, or a source for the coolant feed tube?  This is the tube that runs from the radiator to the overflow tank.  I believe the clamps are standard sizes.

LOL!  The thought had occurred to me.  I know some nice people down there, after all.   ;)

Not an hour ago, some other Fiero people were telling me to move to Texas.  Earlier this week, I had some other people also ask me to move to Texas, even offering me a temporary house.

Unfortunately, any such move is unlikely, mainly because I have family here, and my wife's family is out of country.

I need a picture of digital gauges, the sort that BTR resells.  Does anyone have such?  This would be posted publicly, so it needs to be a picture you took.

I was ready to work on my Fiero.  I have the parts, the tools, and a block of time, but got dumped on, instead.  Old Man Winter dumped a load of snow on us.  More snow means more salt, so the Fiero is again neglected.

I have 2 article submissions for March, thus far.  Some new sections may materialize.

For anyone who would like to write an article, I have LOTS of ideas.  Some of these ideas will take some research, or someone who knows a lot more about Fieros than I do.
