Re: Going Through Another Beater 1986 2.5 5 speed.

Again, Nicely done.

When mine "broke" it was the weld on the rear of the mount. Despite my driver side being power, the pass side bolted in. So I drove around for a few days with no passenger seat while the mount was out getting welded.

A rigged, but needed ground that will be improved later on. From a previous owner.

Re: Going Through Another Beater 1986 2.5 5 speed. Valve Stem Seals Replaced.

Replacing the valve stem seals reduces oil consumption and most times kills tail pipe smoke.

Well, the audio was pretty bad. How did you hold up the Valve once you pulled the keepers out?

Edit: OK I heard compressed air. Nice going.

I find that filling the space above the top of the piston, while it is near TDC, with rope works great. Push it in through the spark plug hole. I think I used nylon rope, a littler stiffer than cotton, and easier to push in. Cruiser54 taught me that trick.

Re: Going Through Another Beater 1986 2.5 5 speed. High Crankcase Pressure.

With oil being sprayed onto the back of the upper radiator hose, something was wrong. Way too high up to be a valve cover gasket.

As these beasts age, things do need to get welded sometimes.
