Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread
Car parked for the winter, blew the trans one night but made it home, believe the intermediate shaft and bearing gave out by the sounds of it.
Tore apart a spare trans for rebuild. Found the the intermediate shaft in that one was worn around the bearing. Purchased one off Ed (onerippenturbo2), thank you! waiting for it in the mail now.
Rounded up all the bearings and seals for the rebuild, still need to grab a Chrome Moly steel bearing backing plate and waiting on 5th and 4-3 shift fork pads from the chryco dealer. Got the car torn apart and old trans out now, waiting on this rebuild.
Don't want to spend the money, but thinking about upgrading to a T2/T3 clutch kit or TU Staged Clutch kit, I do not like the aftermarket one I put in the car last year, it holds power but slips if you try to do anything sporty from a stand still, will not launch the car and it's really soft. Suggestions?
Also plan to replace the front most e-brake cable in hopes of fixing passenger e-brake lock up, everything else is brand new. Replacing the igniton cylinder hopefully this winter, cannot get it into accessories and all the digital equipment is annoying if you just want to sit and listen to tunes.
Also a NOS super 60 computer I got hold of is getting socketed and installed, in hopes of fixing my lack of computer controlled boost - everything else works in that system. May try a set of new injectors too, car ran super rich all the time before I parked it and all sensors tested fine..
ALSO gotta figure out if low oil pressure is my digital dash, sender or actual oil pressure. I thought it was high mileage but when I tore the motor apart last spring all 4 cylinders still had cross hatching on the cylinder walls, so I hope/assume it has new bearings as well.
