hi all, im fairly new to this board and thought id say hi first off..
i have 2 78 II's one coupe and one hatchback with t-tops, unfortunaly both of thease cars have been sitting for a few years, well now id like to get them going again in some form, i'll never get out of them what i have into, and i can't bring myself to junk them to many fond memorys..
my hatchback is a 6cyl 4-speed, the car was running well when i parked it,the reason i stopped driving it was because the gas tank filter crumbled appart inside the tank and i got tired of cleaning out the carb every week, no matter how many filters i had in the line it still got to the carb... but the day i put it where it is sitting there was a metal scrapeing noise comming from the motor i think, it was a constant scrape and not like a wrapping and there is oil in it, any ideas on what it may be? or things i may want to check before i try to get it running again?
my other car is a 78 coupe with a 4cyl 4-speed, it also ran well when parked, i stopped driving it because i needed the gas tank for my hatchback. the body is pretty solid and it probably wouldn't take too much to get it going again.. but i need a good tank and sending unit does anyone remanufacture thease? got one they can sell me cheap, im unemployed and can't afford much.. also can i get the in-tank filter?
thanks in advance for your help and segestions
