  1. WTB OEM rear Differential (Stock with pump)

    My diff is in desperate need of repair or replacement. I'm looking for an original to R&R my bad one. If the teeth are still in good shape, but needs seals or shims is fine. Washington State area is preferable as I can pick up. Otherwise we can talk about shipping costs.Thanks Vince
  2. Windshield trim installation question

    GreetingsSo after having the windshield replaced, I noticed the side trim pieces did not set flush to the glass but were raised. I was told this was by design as a rain channel.Hard to get a pic with the reflection n such, but if you look close, the red line indicates the widths edge, and...
  3. Help replacong rear axle bearings.

    Just another delay that is slightly annoying. I have new Rear axle bearings and hub assembly.Looking at the shop manual, (and other FWD cars I have done) it is a straight forward job.... Until I pull the rotor, and see there is no axle nut or washer. Just a solid unit with no visible...
  4. rear tie rod part numbers?

    Showing some slop, so its time to replace. Anyone have a part number? Any aftermarket source?Domo Arigato! Vince
  5. WTB: Simple odds and ends...

    1.) Passenger door mirror w/working motor (Casing unimportant... Keep it....) 2.) Drivers door lower window exterior rubber trim (Glass slides between it when lowering) still flexible? 3.) Rear passenger door lock pull? (lift to unlock from inside) Mines snapped... may be a compatible part with...
  6. So why no RIP registry?

    So as we know, 26 years has seen the demise of many a VR-4.... Totaled, fire, flood, rusted out or what ever.What I do see is many owners selling off the original plaque, and often to an buyer with less than honorable intentions. I've encountered this with other 'limited production' vehicles...
  7. Hidden improvments from OEM

    So, recently I have been hit by multitudes of complements about my "un-molested" VR-4. I'm kinda proud of that, knowing she is still 99% stock, and suddenly drawing attention that a 'Kid' has not gotten hold of her... Not meaning offense to you modders out there, but I understand 26 years with...
  8. A question of Color (interior)

    Greetings, So I have my Nile Black, and the seats are looking pretty nasty.I plan on re-dying them but needed a fast confirmation here first. There is no color name for the seats other than 'Black'. Is that correct? I know the rest of the interior is charcoal....As I said, just a safety...
  9. Front crank bearing/seal question

    OK, so it looks like I have at least lost the front crank seal just from the amount of oil coming off the harmonic balancer.But my question is this: "Is loss of a front bearing common to this engine?"My question/comments comes from recent events; I have had to repeatedly tighten the...
  10. Best source for remanufactured heads?

    I would love to swap out my head this summer. Anyone have preferences or experiences with various companies?Many thanks, Vince
  11. Blew a Rear Brake Line. SS Options?

    So I have a replacement on its way.... But if one went, the others are not far away.Who is recommended to have a quality set of braided stainless (or Kevlar for that matter) direct replacements for all four corners?Thanks Vince
  12. IPB (Illistrated Parts Breakdown) anywhere out there?

    Has anyone published the complete IPB for a Galant VR4 anywhere online?I thought I had it on microfiche, but cant seem to put my fingers on it... Now wondering where to get a copy.Thanks, Vince
  13. Oil consumption to the extreme.

    Not that I cant find it, but was curious about the more common experience from this group surrounding this issue.I'm going through oil at a rapid pace with no indication of leaks, so I must be burning it. Problem is that for the amount I consume (so far 3 quarts in under 4000 miles) I would...
  14. Practical upgrades (keepin it real) for power

    Greetings, So 1212 is once again alive after years of setting and/or neglect, and I have enjoyed seeing the transformation. I'm currently still cleaning up the cosmetics (paint restoration and dent repair), and they are coming along with surprising ease.So now I find myself curious. I'd like...
  15. How critical is the FIAV?

    So attempting to disassemble my non-functional Fiav,I eventually destroyed it.So now it is off to our WTB section or Fleabay with fingers crossed. What I have noticed on Fleabay is a 2 separate Fiav blockoff plates. One to retain the ISC the other without. I understand the valves function...
  16. Who can give a newbe a fast lesson in 1991 transfer cases?

    So to start, I know nothing about the generations of VR4 other than knowing they arrived here in the US for '91 and '92. I know nothing of compatibility between chassis series (GSX) or other Mitsubishi models (Eclipse). So my ability to speak about what interchanges with what is zero.1212...
  17. Bought her back!

    Greetings all, Just a quick hello from Washington State. Wife and I bought our '91 VR4 back in '93. Finally sold her to a co-worker in 2009, and after 4 years (of abuse, i might say) I was offered her back rather than being used as a trade in on a truck.Needless to say, 1212/2000 is home and...
