    Compression test problem

    I finally got the time to do a compression test on my 87 gn; however, I can't get the fitting that goes into the spark plug out of the spark plug hole. I would turn the hose but it would just spin around the fitting. How can I get the fitting out??? Thanks

    Just to make sure

    Ok...I've been in the (slow) process of changing the timing chain on my 87 GN when I get time off work, and I want to make sure everything is right before I reassemble. I know the cam and crack gears spun independent of each other when the teeth in the gears broke off. So, here is what I've...

    I'm putting a new timing chain on and I know that the cam gear rotated while the bottom gear didn't. So many teeth were broke off the factory cam gear that the chain was really loose.

    Car died w/o warning

    Tires rubbing bad

    I just lowered my 87 GN with the belltech 2" drop spindles and the tires are rubbing over the littlest bumps. I have 245/60/15 all the way around. What size tires do I need to have no rubbing at all? Or do I need different shocks or what? thanks

    700r4 tranny problems

    I have an 87 gn with a 700r4 tranny installed. I know I should have stuck with the 200, it would have saved me lots of $$. Anyway, when I get up past 85 mph it is already red-lining and it just doesn't feel right. I don't want to blow the motor so I stopped at 90-95 mph. Does anyone know what...

    translator connections

    I have an 87 GN and I just got a 3" impala ss maf and translator. The translator connects fine to the ss maf, but doesn't fit to my stock maf connection. Did I get the wrong translator? Is there any adapter that I can get to make this work, or can I splice the wires together? Thanks, Jon.
