Spades Posted February 6, 2011 Report Share Posted February 6, 2011 I have had the worst luck with this car...it sounds like the pilot bearing is going out on my 4 speed. I could just replace whatever is failing, but if I am going to all that work, I may as well put in a transmission so I can do 65mph without the engine turning at 3300rpm. I have a 5 speed from a 240sx and a flywheel and a couple of different clutch kits sitting around for my wagon, but I am starting to get tired of stuff breaking all the time. Since I started work on this car I haven't been able to fix things fast enough to get the project finished, and I am starting to get discouraged. I still have to buy a new front windshield and replace the window seals, not to mention finishing the interior and getting it painted. Maybe I am unlucky, maybe I am almost done fixing it, or maybe I was meant to stick with American cars and V8s instead of old imported 4 cylinders. Maybe the Detroit gods have decided to attack my project in vengeance...who knows. At this point I am trying to decide if I should continue on the project or try and get a few grand out of all of the new parts sitting in boxes and the straight but unfinished wagon and then buy a domestic V-8 project. Is this the way it is for everyone else or am I alone in my frustrations? Quote Link to comment
