Rubber valve cover gasket

In my continuing effort to fix all of "Luvi's" oil leaks I ordered a single piece rubber valve cover gasket from European Auto. What I didn't realize at the time was that the existing cover studs would have to be removed and replaced with the shoulderless ones provided with the gasket. Over the year...

Transmission oil leak

"Luvi" had an annoying drip leak from the left transmission drive flange area ( Bentley 9-16). Oil would blow back and eventually coat everything in its path. The right side was fine. Garage floor and flange showed exactly where it was coming from. I changed the output flange seal . The drips contin...

Any Cabby owners in the Denver/ Fort Collins area that might enjoy getting together kicking tires, wrenching, tours etc?

Re: Difficulty starting warm engine.

Thanks for all discussion. I had the chance to put some Freeway miles on Luvi and ran warm fuel pressure and fuel mixture tests. Fuel pressure both warm and residual were within spec. The fuel mixture duty cycle was up at 60%. I must have done something incorrectly when I first "adjusted" it. Anyhow...

Re: Difficulty starting warm engine.

Thanks for the suggestions. For further consideration. I did not have this problem prior to adjusting the O2 closed loop duty cycle to roughly 50%. It had been at 30%. Wonder maybe..."if it ain't broke don't fix it" might apply here. I'll check all the parameters you suggested and report back. Will ...

Difficulty starting warm engine.

When starting "Luvi" after driving at freeway speeds for an extended period of time she just doesen't seem to cooperate. After a couple attempts she will fire on a couple cylinders than I can gently coax her into running smoothly. We can again return to freeway speeds with no problem but the issue h...

Re: Motor mount orientation 88 Cabby

This is a long overdue report on my engine mount replacement. I followed Timbo's Technotes on the subject and all went well. I actually did it in stages saving the passenger side installation till last. I test drove Luvi after each mount installation and didn't find any significant improvement in id...

Motor mount orientation 88 Cabby

My mounts are so chewed up I can't determine the proper orientation in the mounting bracket. It looks like on the passengers side that the air gap is at the top with the rubber "foot" on the bottom. Is that correct? The drivers side I can't tell anything.
Thanks

Inexpensive speaker replacement

After 23 years it was time to replace all 4 speakers in "Luvi". I'm not an audiofile by any means so I was looking for a direct (as much as possible) replacement that had acceptable audio performance. For the front doors I installed Pionear 4x6 TS-A4672R units. These were a direct "bolt in" For the ...

Re: Dash Cover

I ended up installing a dash cover from Dash Designs..www.DASHDESIGNS.COM ... I purchased the "suede" design as opposed to the traditional "carpet" material. The fit is excellent with velcro tape supplied for those portions of the cover that might have a tendancy to shift a bit. In my opinion the va...
