Car covers

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Car covers
So what car covers are y'all using for your cars that have to live outside?

We bought a Coverite cover from Pep Boys some 9 years ago (braded as a "premiumtech" but made by Coverite).....

it works well, and is MOSTLY used inside......

Went to look for the same cover and premium tech is out of business, as is coverite....or at least you cannot seem to buy them anywhere...I figured out that they appear to have made the Barret-Jackson line of covers , but that line is ALSO not available...

Chrysler question…

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Chrysler question…
Am checking out a 1987 5th Avenue. During the 80's which model was top of the line for Chrysler? I have in my head either New Yorker or 5th Avenue, but I really don't know? Thoughts?

Wiper issues on a 1987 5th Ave…

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Wiper issues on a 1987 5th Ave…
Looking at a 1987 5th Avenue for sale about 10 miles from my home today. While checking things out to see what worked and what didn't I discovered the driver wiper worked but the passenger side didn't move at all. The owner and I opened the hood, pulled off the rubber screen near the firewall to check out the wiper connections. We saw how the connecting 'bars' attach from the motor to the shaft of the drivers wiper blade and how there is a bar, or narrow piece of metal, that runs from the...

1987 5th Avenue…

Looking at an 1987 5th Avenue tomorrow. Did see it today but a rotted fuel hose started leaking. Owner fixed it and I'm going back tomorrow to look at it again and try a test drive. It had been sitting for about four weeks. Started right up.

There is a small travel bag in the trunk filled with two large manilla folders stuffed with all the repair records from the 1st owners for the 28 years they owned it. Wow!

Anything specific issue to a 5th Avenue I should look for?

Relays…

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Relays…
I have reason to believe that my power window relay has gone bad. Using a test light, I'm getting power on the wire from the fuse box, but not on any of the three other terminals (red, black, or white/tan). The single terminal comes from the fuse box and the other three goes to the passenger's side window switch, I believe. I've called and searched and no one seems to have one. Is there any way to repair a relay or any other relays that can be substituted? View attachment 41479 ...
