    Re: 89 Turbo Van Bad HEP?

    Here is an interesting tidbit, AMC when they were still called Rambler, used a Motorola alternator which had a large pair of external diodes as a protection against failed internal diodes drawing the...

    Re: 89 Turbo Van Bad HEP?

    This is a nice handheld one, it is a dual trace unit. I made a pair of HEP test cables that can be used in between the HEP leads and the engine harness. If anyone has a dead HEP and can send me the...

    Re: 89 Turbo Van Bad HEP?

    Ok, if you look at the relay plug you will see a pin arrangement of pins like the picture, actual wiring to the relay may reverse the coil leads (85 & 86). Jump 30 to 87 to power the injectors, coil...

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    Damn, were you reading my mind? I thought about the same thing and opening up the block holes slightly. From what I can determine the metal on the DOHC head is pretty thin in that area, so might...

    Re: 89 Turbo Van Bad HEP?

    It will be a 4 pin originally as the 87a (NC) contact is not used. I probably have a bunch of the weather shielded Chrysler ones from a couple of vans I stripped (one was a 1989). For test purposes,...

    Re: 89 Turbo Van Bad HEP?

    When I had that on my T2 Lebaron it was apparently a bad SBEC. Question, shouldnt a 1989 be a SMEC?

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    If I have studs in the block already, then the small dowel pins will only be for final alignment. I have a thought to try, but need to come up with a proper OD piece, then drill though and tap for...

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    Good point, I had thought about doing that but wasn't sure if it was a good idea or not. On the studs, the tap drill for the M11X1.5 thread is 3/8" and for the 7/16-20 is .3906 so the stud is...

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    The stuff came with a set of ARP studs, hardened washers and 12 point nuts. Studs are M11X1.5 on the block end, and 7/16-20 at the head end and have a 3/16" hex socket in the head end. The center of...

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    Yes I do, and the SRT4 integrated turbo already checked over. I stuck it on the mocked up 2.5L short block today, as I wanted to make sure the setup will clear the firewall heat shield on the K-car,...

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    Ok, so I need to find a 1995-99 Neon 2.0L DOHC in a junkyard, fan will not be an issue, I have a modified Ford Contour fan set (changed to pushers) in front of my condenser and radiator/intercooler...

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    The one that goes up over top of the head from the pictures in the parts fiches? I doubt it will clear as the older 2.5L minivan air filters wouldn't. I'm not even sure if I can find the correct DOHC...

    It is indeed a 782 head, engine ran, couldn't drive it as the steering rack was toast.

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    Ok, no pictures, but, with the aluminum Cirrus/Stratus intake, the plenum hits the oil filter. Only easy solution would be a remote oil filter, stock distributor location will fit, and I think the...

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    Studs are reduced diameter from the block threads. I will pull one back out and get some good measurements on it. I also think there is a bit of thread protruding out of the block. I thought about...

    General Re: cylinder head #782 for 2.5

    I will have to look, but I have a 1989 2.5L turbo head, no cam or followers, other than that complete with valves. Don't remember the number right off.

    Re: Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    Ok, I have the SRT4 exhaust manifold and built in turbo, so would I be better off using that one? I also managed to get a 1991 TIII SBEC which was why I was looking at using the TIII system, The car...

    Hybrid 2.5L TIII build

    I had purchased a (supposedly) SRT4 head with a proper SRT4 exhaust manifold with the built in turbo. The guy I bought it from told me the intake was from a Cirrus. The problem right now is trying to...
  23. Interior Re: Tilt steering column for 1989 G/J body

    You are correct, the 1984-89 G body and 1987-89 J body use the same column, I gather your old one isn't salvageable? As I mentioned in your other thread I have a 1984 Laser column, tilt wheel...
