    Truck is a 1995 NAS V8 with just over 100k on the clock. Has been running great until the other day when I experienced a loss of power and backfire/pop out of the intake when modestly accelerating away from a stop. Off the throttle, the engine immediately returned to a smooth idle. I was able to...

    I have had a coil fail and was wondering if anyone knew of a suitable replacement available at places like Advance, AutoZone, or OReilleys. Thanks!

    Hi folks, soliciting input to check my debugging process. I'm in the process of adding intermittent wipers to my '88 110. I've bought the intermittent wiper arm, harness, and programmable relay, and got it all wired up. The problem I'm experiencing is that, when in the intermittent wiper...

    I was re-fitting the exhaust manifold and the stud backed out. It looks like the exhaust manifold stud sheared at one point, a helicoil was used to repair it and then the broken stud was reused. Attached photos of the hole, not great but it doesn't look like there is a sheared stud in there...

    Hi all. So I recently swapped out the distributor on the 94 D90 NAS. Went with a Mallory. I also got the other stuff that Mallory recommended for it including the ignition coil. It ran awesome for 2-3 weekend. Strong. Then out of nowhere it stalled and wouldn't restart. No spark coming...

    Trying to solve a no start situation & when I opened up the access panel thru the top of the fender above my coil, I noticed that it was wired into what turns out to be a " Lumenition " electronic ignition conversion, which is made available for Series & D's thru 1985. Fwiw, the outward...

    Gents, I have seen a few buildups on here using Designa coil chassis for Series vehicles. I am looking for information as to how the crossmember that supports the rear A-frame is designed on the 109 chassis. It looks like it sits within the frame instead of on top of it, due to the difference...
