Make sure you check the front lower control arms, they tend to rust out at the rear bushing and get loads of play. Also make sure to check over all the brakes and suspension(sure you knew that).

Maintenance is very important as these babies are getting old.

got standed with no car for a while today, so took advantage of the sunny yet 38 degree weather and cleaned out the galant and placed the interior in it to get it out of the house.

Decided to change up the motor build for this. Instead of the freshly ringed and gasketed stocker, I will run:

fresh tanked and machined block, .020 over
Wiseco .020 pistons
Eagle Rods (balanced with pistons)
fresh crank
BSE (I am a huge fan of Balance shafts, but what the heck)
Ported and polished head
272 cams
ARP head studs

Will still be running the stock VR4 FMIC and exhaust for the winter, then the summer will see the new FMIC and exhaust

It is over-kill for my build expectations of sticking with the e316g forever and such, but could not pass up the trade. (Trading for my 93 Summit AWD Auto wagon)

Well, I managed to eeek out a Rebuilt title from the Indiana BMV!!! So the build can go forth!! I found hail-damage on the roof and trunk, I think that is why it was totaled in the past so a rebuilt title is the best I could do.
The motor build has changed a bit as I now have the parts and now know what they are exactly:

.020 bored and machined stock block
.020 9.0:1 Wiseco pistons
Tool Steel wrist pins
Eagle H-Beam rods
un-cut polished stock crank
ARP L19 headstuds
-----All the above picked up on a trade for a 93 Auto AWD Summit wagon, good trade------

polished/ported head
272/272 cams
new 3g lifters

Had new bearings installed in the front 5-lug hubs so I will finish the 5-lug swap

Put in a little work on Saturday since it was nice and warm in the 40's. Installed my 5-lug front knuckles with the fresh bearings. Went ahead and installed new ball joints, stab-links and tie rod ends too. Front struts are toast, rust infested (only rust on the car!!). Unfortunately I discovered some play in the passenger inner tie rod. Guess I will pull the rack and replace those too.

unless the rack is leaking or you really want to drop it, you do not need to remove the rack to change the inner tie rods.

I thought a special tool was required to do it with the rack in the car.

You can probably do it with a pipe wrench. You may also have to bend back the retainer washer tabs too, but that doesn't need anything special.

Wow, who are these fools who fray out the wiring system like that, and zip tie a heavy compressor to a aluminum line? They should be restricted to public transit at the least.

Enjoy the build.

I absolutely agree!!. It looks like they were going to either re-loom or wire tuck and stopped. Fortunately the line is still solid and still holds pressure. I have since straightened that line (ever so carefully) and set the compressor on the cradle.

Saturday was in the Mid 40's, nice and warm for driveway work!!! Went to work on getting the dash installed:

Pulled the dash to install the vent system. Found this on the heater core when I removed the semi installed dash:


The heater core did not work properly, was unable to redirect air since the knob would not move. I found the core was filled with AT LEAST a bunch of acorns, maybe the body of the snake was there too. So, I installed a new core.
Install complete:


Only issue I found were following wires, no idea where they should go:

These are from under the steering wheel:


These coming from the center console area:


This is where the ECU goes:


And this wire. No place for it to go to in the harness:


Anyone know what I can use to mount the speedo cable? there is no clip to hold it in place in the gauge cluster mount?


Also found these mounts in the trunk. Are any of these for the gvr4?

Figures. My luck they would not be the correct ones. I was completely surprised to find a complete dash minus only the two small dash panel/switches and the little panel that finishes off the lower left dash so I was hopeful for these mounts, but no more.

LOL, I grew up in Arizona, played with many a snake, but I was really cautious. That is why I replaced the heater core, don't need any snake issues like Chapell had in Gone in 60 Seconds.

Also, in the following images (from the top):

- 3rd Image is more than likely a portion of a turbo timer harness *You can go ahead and remove it and reconnect your factory harness. You'll see what I mean when you remove the panel below the steering wheel.
- 5th Image that circuit is taped exposed (not connected) to the factory engine management portion i.e. ECU connector loom
- 6th Image Courtesy of Muskrat:



Also, you can Consult Chapter 13 (Fuel) of the Factory Service Manual Volume 1 for additional reference.

Went out to install a new inner tie rod because the jam nut was seized to the rod and it had some play. Once I removed it I also found it a little bent.
