After the 89 900 turbo throttle body swap all vacuum lines now appear to line up correctly. I also swapped in a different MAF. Will try to fire her up today.
On a separate note, I've been busy refinishing a spare wood wheel I had in the garage. I sanded both the wheel and shift knob and stained a "gunstock" color and to my surprise they came out pretty good and the best part is I got the horn working.

Hey Burns glad to see your still out there. I do have a couple updates. Had the steering rack and another secondary fuel pump replaced. The car is now registered as of last week.

The same day I got it registered the clutch pedal decided to go to the floor after about an hour of driving. It's now up on jack stands I don't see any leaks and the clutch feels good after sitting for a bit. I'm thinking there's air in the system or the fluid is so old that once the clutch system heats up the fluid breaks down causing the pedal to get soft.

Thx Cark!

I've been doing some wire tracing under the dash and need some help. Does anyone know where the orange wire coming from the plug behind the instrument cluster ( fuel gauge side) connects? I have a mystery brown wire that meets up with the orange wire. Both have female terminals on the ends.

The repair manual has the following wiring schematic diagram that shows 47L but it fails to tell what it is for. I think this is whats causing my gauges to go crazy.Does anyone know what 47L (EXH) is? I'm thinking it's an exhaust/ cat converter wire and I may not even need it connected.

The pic shows a orange wire coming from 47L routing to 86 then to 152B (29pin bulkhead at main fuse panel) then to 22A (main fuse panel left wheel housing). Can anyone tell me in first grader terms what all that means?

Dug a little deeper and got some more info on the brown wire. The brown wire is coming from the wiper relay. There is a thick brown wire and a smaller gauge brown wire coming from the same spot off the wiper relay. The the larger brown wire goes to the wiper stalk.

Posting this up for documentation purposes and maybe it will help someone out in the future. A 1987 900 turbo conv landed in one of my local boneyards recently and I was able to confirm the brown and orange wires mentioned above were hanging disconnected. This reassured me that they are not needed ( in CA atleast).

I'm now working on AC delete.

Annual update!

More documentation.... A/C delete complete, car probably weighs 1000 lbs less😁.

After replacing the steering rack the car would no longer engage 5th gear. Turned out all it needed was a shifter sleeve collar adjustment (about a 2mm adjustment) and 5the gear is back and all other gears seem a bit smoother.

Oh a couple pages back I had mentioned I got some eBay poly rear torque arm bushings. Stay away they are junk. I've been finding pieces of the poly bushings in my driveway probably breaking off when I jack up the car and suspension flex's.

Took the car out to get some groceries the other day and my sweet exhaust note changed on me. Turned out the bolts from bolt on cat had backed themselves out and I developed an exhaust leak. Ordered a set of aluminun flange gaskets and should have it fixed in no time.

I have also started tackling the dash fascia mounting tab fix and will be relocating my gauges from the pillar to where the factory stereo goes.

Lastly, I am still looking for a replacement front airflow flare Ugh!
