    The Teves II is standard across so many cars, so I doubt the rotation of the pump motor would be wired differently. If you have already mounted and installed the ABS unit in the car, then try this:

    If any of the 93's have any:
    - Windshield wiper cowlings in reasonable shape
    - Windshield roof trim
    - A pillar trim
    - C pillar trim
    - Back window trim
    - Driver side mirror switches
    - rear seat...

    Don't know if this was discussed, but how old is your fuel? My white SC sat up for 2+ years and would start, cough, sputter, and then run fine until the next day. Had to mix in a gallon of good fuel...

    In general, the tensioner adjusts for wear as the chain stretches with age. But the chain should be tight to begin with.

    It would be better to have one, but none of my 3 have a cover. They have long since cracked and broken off. I've driven DD for 10+ years without with no issues. :cool:

    Unplug the cam sensor. See if the bucking goes away. It may take multiple tries to get it to start.

    I'd go to TBSCshop and get one of those used ones. In fact, I was about to do that same thing, but turns out my Alt was not bad, but rather the oxidation on the terminal was the problem. I had a...

    The alt in my Black car just went south. I had a spare (of course!) and all is well. One thing I noticed after removing it, was the main terminal had a lot of oxidation+rust. It is possible that this...

    Bingo! At this point with a 30 year old vehicle, thats a good idea.

    As for the light on/off issue.. it could be a connection somewhere that got jostled, but more likely the alternator is on its...

    I recall there were some fitment issues with the Dorman early on, but has this been fixed now?

    Orielly stocks the Dorman and the picture looks correct and the specs look OK.

    Agree. I use black RTV; however the copper is generally better to work with. Too many people, like with other SC topics, Oh.. lets say burping the coolant, adjusting the TV cable, head gaskets.. so...

    I have a small dog also. I use a lightweight nylon crate which is easy to carry and folds up when not needed. It keeps him secure and out of my lap so I can steer quickly if needed. I have a hard...

    Thats not enough charging voltage. Good alternators are hard to come by these days. The remans are not that great, and new ones are hard to even find. I'd recommend swapping the pulleys out and see...

    Rock Auto. Great until it isn't

    Buyer beware. IF RockAuto botches your order for any reason.. good luck. After 30 days, they give you the shove off. :mad:
    If they don't give you the shove off, you still get the runaround.

    Never in the almost 30 years that I've owned a SC have I even thought of using that flimsy rail to lift the car :eek:, or god forbid the floorboard.. there's a big stiff steel frame rail right there...

    You could just try overfilling 1/2 quart at a time to see if it makes any difference. You're not going to hurt the AOD with 1/2 quart extra fluid. Worst thing that will happen is it will leak out the...

    1 other remark.. regarding the pump itself.. If the pump is gummed up, the motor may spin it but it will not prime and it will not build pressure. :(

    If you go the route of rebuilding the motor, do a search here for some tips and pics. It requires some unsoldering and since the end is dog-eared on, you have to chisel the tabs open to remove the...

    The tool to have is the vise wrench. Saved my bacon a couple of times. Not to be confused with the vise grip plier, due to the way it clamps on, it will not slip nor round off the fitting. I have the...

    You have to remove the entire rail. That means you have to remove the entire back seat, the side panel, and the top panel.

    And you would be correct. I'd check it once more on level ground, engine running, and check that its to the upper edge of the hash mark. I know, but just in case... wipe the dipstick and then...
