  2. This photos is a few years old. It might have been posted here before but I still like it. Me and a few of my buddies behind me were getting ready to drive the Tail of the Dragon, eleven miles of nothing but curves. This photo was taken on the other end of the Dragon. Yeah, my Reatta looks a little out of place among all those Cobras but we had a great time driving through the mountains and around all those curves.

  3. You saying that brings this to mind. It always makes me chuckle.

  4. First I would just like to take a moment to thank everyone for there quick response and great advise. I believe in my situation there were 2 things going on. Both solutions where in the responses to my post. Number one problem was the outside temperature was too low to engage the AC system. Problem pointed out by 2seater, thanking you. Padgett and Ronnie thank you for the detailed answers and visual aids. Next, I did have to clear the codes by disconnecting the battery, jumping the low sensor to engage the compressor and added AC oil, sealant and freon. Needed to do these steps multiple times because there was zero freon psi. Finally, AC working and owner happy ! This can not go unsaid, I could not have completed this job without all the help of the Forum members. Now on to my next Reatta project. Later, Buzzard67

  5. Hard to answer that question accurately without more detail, top of which would be mileage and a bit of car history. The car looks okay overall, a nice driver based on overall appearance. A little grungy under the hood. It doesn’t need to shine but it doesn’t help the otherwise neat appearance

  6. Not sure I understand. Could you post a photo of the bracket and what you need to do?

  7. I agree with other comments already posted. Being a metallurgist, I would be very concerned about substantially higher stresses and associated fatigue from putting all of the suspension dynamics through the shock tower.

  8. Glad to report that disconnecting the battery and reconnecting worked. Ac is blowing cold on my car now.

  9. Ronnie, coil-overs are much thinner, even with the coil spring. As far as springs go, they are rated up 900lbs for each side. And by running up the adjustment on them up you can support more weight.

  11. Well that is open loop. OXY on steady just means the O2 is not cycling. Does not look like it has been running for long. AC is not on. If HI coolant fan is on, high speed relay is probably stuck on. ps is 72 degrees C, 162 F.

  12. I drove the Dragon last year and checked it off of the car guy bucket list. It was an experience for sure… unfortunately my Reatta was in limp mode with the EO42 at the time so I flogged a rental BMW instead.

  13. The reason the black '88 Select Sixties don't get much attention and maybe seem rare is because no one knows they are Select Sixties. The only difference in them and other black '88 Reattas is the hood emblem that was rarely installed and the X22 code on the sticker in the trunk. At least as far as I know that is the only differences.

  14. Just think of all the people who don't know how to change a tire, or some that might not even know how to put fuel into a car. I knew a girl in high school who didn't know how to put fuel in her own car. Her dad would drive it to the gas station and do it for her... I think that's what owners manuals do is give you the basic information to do the basics on a car to keep it on the road or fix common issues without getting too technical.

  15. It's been so long since I looked a the owners manual I can't remember what is in it. If you intend to be a long term Reatta owner the service manual is a good investment.

  18. Before I took the 'vert down to Texas I gave it the "ol 2seater carpet treatment" that means a spray dye job. Turned out really well so this week it was the Red's turn. Borrowed my neighbors "Green Machine" [hand held carpet cleaner] and cleaned the carpet and floor mats. Then mixed up a batch of dye and sprayed the carpet, wiping down the vinyl as I went. Allowed to dry and turns out great. Another little project was I noticed while stopped in traffic [Brownsville Texas 80 plus temperatures] that my water temperature gauge would register 220 degrees which is high for a 185 thermostat. So this week I thought I would address that. I thought sure it would be the fan motor [so I never checked the relays] and pulled the fan [puller, radiator side] and and ran direct power to it off the battery, ran perfect. So I swapped relays around and now it works. However the puller fan stopped working so that confirmed the relay was bad. Had some extra relays in the parts bin, swapped in another and all is good.

  19. This seems to be somewhat common when temperatures are cool, like spring and fall. The pressure drops enough from the cold that the computer sees as a problem. More common on 134a converted systems.

  20. Interesting comment [at least to me]. I bought the Red 13 years ago with 111,xxx miles on it. The car now has 300,xxx miles on it which is still less then an average of 10,000 miles a year...
