    Main Bearing Specs

    Edit: Just noticed you said main bearings, the ones shown below are rod bearings.Not sure if this helps, but first pic is an old King STD out of my 6-bolt, second pic is a new ACL Race bearing, third pic with part#

    504/2000 Restoration project and 2 other VR4. Why do I love these cars!!

    Incredible job, never let that thing go.

    Galant GSX build (and how to evict rodent squatters)

    So to recap, the rod caps were torqued to almost double spec, head bolts were torqued to half spec, transfer case was missing 2 of the 5 bolts, transmission bolts were hand tight and starting to back out, north/south brace was missing bolts and hanging by a thread, head bolts and most of the...

    Galant GSX build (and how to evict rodent squatters)

    I'm jumping ahead a bit, but this is fresh in my mind since I just did it yesterday. I removed the intake manifold and the manifold brace wasn't connected to the IM and was barely connected to the block by the last thread on the bolt so it was just banging around on the support. The head did...

    1991 galant vr4 ROLLER in Mass $2500 or B.O

    Nice looking car and a good price man, good luck!

    Galant GSX build (and how to evict rodent squatters)

    The tires were completely knackered, so I grabbed some rollers from the junkyard and mounted them up on the wheels, snapped some studs while I was at it. I wasn't sure what wheels they were, but they sort of looked like some old jdm wheels, unfortunately they were just some American Racing...

    Galant GSX build (and how to evict rodent squatters)

    After I got the exhaust off I started into the engine a bit, the head looked pretty clean inside.I turned the engine over with a breaker bar on the crank bolt and it hung up bad at one point, wouldn't move at all past there, I thought a balance shaft plug or something might be jammed inside...

    Thanks, I don't spend nearly as much time on it as I'd like to, but try to whenever I have a few minutes. Time consuming jobs seem worse than even the biggest of jobs, it'll be painful when I get to re-wiring the whole car.

    Galant GSX build (and how to evict rodent squatters)

    I started in on the engine, doing some disassembly and cleanup, and it was no better than the interior of the car. Mouse droppings and nests everywhere, most wires had sheathing chewed off or chewed through completely.I pulled the exhaust off and the mice had even climbed up the entire...

    Thanks, I'd normally take you up on that, but I'm going to be putting an aluminum dash in and composite sheet door panels. Do you happen to have a hood, right fender, or windshield?

    Thanks, should be worth it in the end.

    Galant GSX build (and how to evict rodent squatters)

    I got tired of just cleaning, so I started collecting some parts for the car.Some new corner lights, ignition barrel, key, door locks, and trunk seal thanks to JSchleim18.Some mud flaps from an Evo 3 RS and a Nardi Classic 360mm thanks to a friend who found them in Japan and had them sent...

    Completely agree, knowing now the extent of the damage, I'm not sure I would take it on again. The seller had a dozen other cars where this was stored too, I guarantee they're just as bad or worse.

    Anybody know what mirrors these are?

    They don't look like Galant mirrors, they looks smaller and the folding section is different. I can't find any other Mitsubishi mirror from the late 80's - early 90's that looks like the one in the photo either.

    Galant GSX build (and how to evict rodent squatters)

    I began removing every piece of the interior and putting it on a scale before throwing it away and documenting the weight, luckily the cold weather helped with chipping the sound deadening out. I've had to buy dry ice to get the same result before.
