Re: UPDATE! stalling lesabre, When in park and brakes on !!!!!

I was having a similar problem with my '86 a few years back, and I took it to the local GM dealer. They ran my serial numbers and found there was a service order issued for my car. They had to replace my MAF sensor and clean and replace all of the ground straps on the engine. I had the work complete...

Re: Power antenna, where to buy?

Luckily, I got one from my '97 Caddy parts car. GM used the same antenna in many different models over an extended period of time. you may find a few good ones at a local junk yard.

I have parted out two or three '85 and 86 LeSabres. Let me know what if anything you still need. I may have what your looking for.

Re: tinted windows

I have my LeSabre tinted al the way around. I had 30% put in all 5 side and back glass, and I had a strip of 5% put across the top of the windsheild, down about 10" on each side, and it curved upward in the middle to follow th natural curve of the windshield. The tint on the winsheild is awesome in ...

Re: AWD BLT IDEA

I have done a bit of fibreglass work in the past, it is not that hard at all. Just do some work on a sacrificial pece to get your feet wet first.

Good Luck... PM me with any updates if you want.

Cheers.

Re: New to the collection

I have a bunch of parts kicking around for the car... Too bad I am up here in Newfoundland, the shipping would be expensive. I can offload a few parts cheap though.

Let me know if you are interested...

Re: Thinking about shaving my antenna

Hey Alibi,

I believe Ford actually makes an antenna that sticks to the inside roof of the Explorer... Not sure what year, but you can check it out if you like.

Re: AWD BLT IDEA

Hey DirtRacer, I have been away form the forum for a while, and I am only now reading your post. Personally I think it is an awesome idea. :) As someone who is currently doing some major mods to a Buick LeSabre, I can fully relate. I am now in the process of fully swapping out a Northstar V8 and all...

Re: New Donor Car...

Worst case, there's always Mega Squirt fuel injection/ignition control. The advantage of going that route would be that the engine isn't so integrated into so many other systems. Not to mention being able to keep the stock dash setup. Hey Scott, Do you have any other information on this system? I h...

Re: New Donor Car...

Ahhh....I thought about that one too. My parents have a 97 ETC that I'll probably end up with someday so I didn't attempt the swap. It looks challenging, the Deville is a lot different. From looking at it I didn't think the cradle was wide enough front to back to fit the 4t80e and motor. So you're ...

Re: New Donor Car...

Greg, I'm guessing that the cradle on that side took somewhat of a hit. You might be able to compare the mounts from the 4.1-4.9 engines from earlier Devilles. The 94-95 Deville had the option of either a 4.9 or 4.6 N*. Either way, custom mounts shouldn't be too bad if needed. Should be an interest...
