Look great!RLK wrote:I'm in Colorado Springs and just bought a 1997 PF for $1500. It had a seized fan clutch and torn CV boots so I spent most of my spring break in the driveway replacing things.
So far i've replaced Fan clutch, fuel filter, both CV axles and added MileMarker manual hubs.
While doing the fan clutch I discovered the intake elbow right by the plenum was crumbling and had been taped with duct tape and electrical tape so I ordered a new elbow. Until it arrives I made one out of 3" flexible HVAC pipe and 3M foil tape.
After the second fuel fillup , on the second day of ownership, I recorded 13.3 miles per gallon. After these fixes I am getting 21.4.
I'm still going over things and will be for a while. 225,000 miles on it and put away wet for a while. I was pleasantly surprised to find a limited slip differential out back. This will be a good vehicle for a long time to come.
