  1. 3K yes, 5K I don't think so, but maybe for the right person
  2. Off the starter relay, you'll find the fusable link- IIRC it is yellow. You may have to open up the wiring bundle to follow it, but typically, they burn through inside the wire casing leaving a soft spot. You can buy replacement fusible link wire, make sure it is the same gauge and cut back the original and use a good butt connector to crimp the replacement on. Usually when they fail, it is sudden and complete, but I have had one short intermittently for a few drives before it failed.
  3. I wouldn't trust a 1000.00 lift either, I put in an Atlas 11000 two post in the shop I work out of and I think it was about 2200.00 bucks delivered to a freight depot. Install was not as hard as you might think. I was thinking of a different portable jack system. That price is pretty good
  4. How much space do you have? A traditional 2 post lift is much cheaper.
  5. I'll try to get to the photos and inspection this evening and post my findings and photos here. I can ship on your dime (In fact it is currently boxed and ready to ship as I received it and never pulled it out completely. ) I don't even recall the color LOL
  6. IDK if the 73 column interchanges with the 71-72- i know the ignition switch is different, not sure what would be involved to change either over to the other. I'll pull it out this weekend and get photos and do a full inspection of it.
  7. I bought one several years back and stashed it in my parts storage. If someone is interested I'll pull it, photo it and set a price.
  8. Slightly off topic, but how do I get these housecats to stay out of my yard? David, can you help? :D
  9. I probably would too, but the actual work isn't too bad. As long as there is no damage to address it is mostly a lot of careful cleaning before reassembly
  10. Head gaskets are not hard to swap. I can do a pair in the car in under 3 hours. Valve adjustment is a little time consuming.
  11. We put the radiator for a frineds vehicle in the trunk and used exhaust pipe to run the water lines. You want to try and get air out of a system, that one will give you nightmares.
  12. I'm late to the party, so please forgive me if this has been mentioned. Have you replaced your Radiator cap? Radiators rely upon pressure to assist in the cooling process. If it is older, it may be time for a fresh cap. Lower hoses shound have springs in them to prevent collapse. If this is occurring, nothing but a new hose will fix the system. As to the remaining gunk in your coolant, I would flush the system repeatedly with clean water until it drains clean then flush with a few gallons of distilled water before refilling it with the proper coolant/mix. Pure anti freeze doesn
  13. having a air chisel is helpful, a sawzall is almost certainly necessary. Patience helps. All in all it is still better than changing the front rubber bushings in existing springs
