1985 Dodge Omni GLH-T
Well, after about a year of having this (my first) TD, I think it’s time I let her go.
****The ONLY mileage I am POSITIVE about is regarding the Previous Owners piston re-ring about 40k miles ago. Current dash insert reads ~39k but a spare came with the car with another reading. ****
Bought this car in May of 2012 from a seller in Mercer, PA, I want to say the previous owner had said he owned the car for about 8 years before me. The PO had antique plates on the car and hadn't used it as a DD, just ran it a few miles per week or so whenever he could.
Some information I received from the PO includes…
-Original T1 head was replaced with a sound T2 head (Original T1 block remains)
-Piston rings were replaced around 40k ago when I picked the car up.(No more than 3k miles since)
-Head gasket was replaced when rings were done, no problems here.
New items since I’ve had the car…
-Replaced windshield to pass inspection (6/12)
-New radiator (7/12)
-New RN14’s (3/13)
-Borg Warner clutch&pressure plate (1/13)
-2 half shafts (1/13)
-Other things I’m sure to be missing.
Since I bought the car, I used it mainly as a DD, driving it around 3-4 days a week for the first 3 months in between fixes like brakes , radiator, oil changes. Then soon before colder months came, fifth gear started to make a nasty sound in my A525. Garage kept for about 4 months until I got a ‘new’ 525 (said to be at about 50-60k miles) to replace my old one early in 2013. Went ahead and bought a new clutch and pressure plate while it was being swapped. Also replaced both half-shafts (new) and had the starter checked at Advanced Auto and the results showed it was O.K and working. Performed a compression test before it was put away in the winter and it was all O.K.
I’m sure to be forgetting a few things, and may even mention something twice, but here is a list of what the car consists of as well as upgrades.
-T2 head on the original T1 block
-1 piece (I believe) T2 intake with Holley throttle body
-FWD Performance computer goodies including 15psi boost
-Oil filter relocated behind bumper, infront of radiator
-FMIC with custom piping (Can provide brand name and size if requested, can’t remember right now)
-Turbo XS BOV
-2.5” swing valve
-3” Magnaflow full exhaust system
-Battery relocated to the back hatch inside a battery box
-Two ON/OFF switches – Manual fan override & Fuel Pump ON/OFF
-New-ish Kenwood head unit
-AutoMeter boost gauge
-Intellitronix (I believe) A/F gauge
-SunPro mechanical oil pressure gauge
Many spare parts will also be included with the car, about 8-9 boxes worth I’d say.
Extras include (Just the major stoof!): 2 fuel rails, original T1 head, 2 Omni front fenders, throttle body, GLH side skirts, various bezels, spare intercooler piping and couplers, many plastic interior panels and various plastic chrome pieces, grille, BELL 3-point harness, AutoMeter fuel pressure gauge, red&gray seatbelts, and much more.
Much of the car is positive and on point, however there are a few bad points to present.
-Door hinges are 25+ years old, they could use replacements
-Missing drivers side back door handle (drivers door’s broke off, had to jack it!)
-The paint is obviously 25+ years old
-Will need new tires & probably struts
-Currently using a 1st gen Neon throttle cable after mine snapped
-Will need an oil change
-Power steering fluid leaking either from the lines or from the rack’s seal.
-Drops about a nickel – quarter size of engine oil a week from underneath the bellhousing
-One fog lamp is out
-A slight tick from the tranny area whenever off the throttle, I’m thinking throwout. Does not affect performance.
Overall, the car is super fun, it could just use a little TLC. I’d LOVE to keep it, but I’m 18 graduating highschool and cannot afford to continue progress on this car. Also, I’m selling because I need a much more reliable source of transportation in a month or so for an electricians apprenticeship.
