If you have the stock exhaust system all you need do is drop the cat.  If you have headers, well....

Thanks all for the comments.  Wiring and battery are fine, power to

everything, i.e. headlights and all are fine. Just put a new ground wire

from battery to body. Volt meter is normal after I bump start the car,

alternator is an almost new Saturn alt. Given the odd sounds it made on last

crank, I have good confidence it's the starter, but will inspect the wiring

more carefully on return to the big city and a tad warmer weather after

tomorrow.



 



The stock starter is long gone and the starter in there is one of the newer

hi-torque, but by newer I mean 7 to 10 years old.

So, I think my starter motor has died.  Please refresh my recollection as to

whether I can get the old one out and the new one in without removing the

passenger side tail pipe. I am pretty sure it's actually the starter motor

and not the intermediate wiring.  I tried a new relay and that didn't help.

I wiggled the wires about a bit.  Recently, I had a some "unusual noises"

right after cold starting and the last couple starts were particularly

anemic before not working at all.



 



While I am lounging in the mountains for the weekend, I am conveniently

pointing downhill so I can bump start it to get going home tomorrow.

I sent them all the tubes a few years back.  They measured and filed

prints for them.  In fact there are part numbers to order.

Wedge List / 1980 TR8 Automatic DHC
« Last post by Tim Greenlee on December 13, 2017, 05:55:41 PM »
I bought a 1980 TR8 Automatic DHC several months ago.  I also have a Corvette

C5 that I have been upgrading and having tons of fun.  I have decided I want

to spend more time with the Corvette and I don't have the time for the TR8.  I

am offering the car to someone on the list before it goes to Ebay.  The TR8

runs and drives very good, it has a Holley 390 on an Edelbrock intake,

stainless steel exhaust, new tires and driveshaft.  The car is aqua with a

very good original blue plaid interior.  Top is in good condition and the A/C

works great.  Body needs some minor work and paint job.  Easy driver project.

Stock Stromberg carbs available.  The car is garaged  in Huntsville, Alabama,

Email if interested.

So did I.  Best I've ever seen.  Excellent product.

Had to order them over the phone

but that was standard practice for most things back then...

Michael.



I purchased and installed the Classic Tube hoses and lines on my 1980 FI car

when I redid the front suspension. Form and Fit were excellent.

Sorry, I don't have the part numbers handy.
