If it was a US built car it has to have 4O on tag to be a turbo or it was a 140.

For less than a handful of very rare Pilot cars or all Canadian cars, it has to have L87 on the tag to be a turbo or it is a 140.

For the turbo option it might be better to say that on the body tag, option group #4 must have an O code. It looks like it was being talked about a number 40.

Check that your car has the original tailpipe cutout in the right side body under the rear bumper. Only turbo cars had this. It should have finished edges and not look like it was cut with a saw.

Pretty common for original turbo cars to have been raped of their original engine in the 1970's for use in a dune buggy. Car is then sold off cheap to some who cobbles up a replacement engine out of whatever parts the can scare up cheaply.

Years later it's sold as something it never was. Make sure that's not your car.

Thanks for the clarification, RJ! Looks like I was once again a victim of the shorthand on this forum that everyone assumes everyone else knows!

Monza109, I'll look for the exhaust cutout condition. Just to be super sure: "Right side" means 'driver side' or 'passenger side'? Because I can already say that the only muffler on this car is on the passenger side.

So Eric... you say you are "rebuilding".... so what cam do you have? Is the Crankshaft Nitrided "&" ??

Otherwise you are just repairing.... "Rebuild" is another term that is greatly misused.



"repairing" is all I ever do...

Matt,

I'm only rebuilding the heads. But they are true farmed out garage rebuilds. I guess technically I'm not rebuilding anything. Garage mechanics are.

Are the heads getting ALL NEW GUIDES / SEATS / Springs / Valves?

If not the heads are being repaired...

It's easily confused but you have to consider directions as if you were sitting in the drivers seat.

Left would be the drivers side (US cars) and right is the passenger. For Europe the directions are the same except that the driver is on the right and the passenger is on the left. That's why "right" and "left" are preferable to "drivers" and "passengers".

Front is where our trunk is and rear is where our engine is.

With regards to the engine, the crankshaft pulley, distributor etc are at the "rear" of the engine. The flywheel, starter etc are at the front of the engine.


BTW, I use the term "rebuild" when I'm performing a complete servicing of a component. For example I say that I rebuilt the alternator if I change out the normal wearing items like brushes and bearings and check other components like the stator and rotor for proper operation. Some people use the term rebuild rather loosely and others only say rebuild if most everything thing but the castings are replaced. To each his own I guess, I fall somewhere in the middle.

So my passenger side and that is I guess the right side head is being completely rebuilt with all that you say, Matt. The left is a whole new head it isn't even the same one that was on there before and as far as I know it's received the same treatment. But I don't have direct control over that head. It's being put together and gifted to me as opposed to the passenger side one, which I took in to a machine shop myself and gave them instructions to rebuild it. FYI it's a local shop here in Porterville California and they're rate including cleaning and new parts is extremely reasonable. Just in case anybody was local to me wants to know.

While we're on rebuilds, is this thermistor correct? The database on the website I bought it from said yes but we all know how reliable that is.

And since I've moved from engine codes to engine rebuild to now a thermistor, perhaps somebody should change the subject line?. :-) Unfortunately I can't do it myself.

By 'thermister' do you mean the $15.00 coolant
sensor? If so the answer is "not even close".

There is a thermistor right on the CCF that is
correct.

I've taken a look and yeah they're just not in comparison.

I found an old thermistor thread and I've got some sources now. Thank you.
