1988 Formula SII-SC 3800 M17 - The Maroon Menace


« on: August 16, 2015, 08:49:17 PM »

Well my Fiero friends Pappy is trying real hard to get an 88 Formula with a SC 3800 this Wednesday - Had to request a kitchen pass - I have the money but had to pull pretty deep from my 88 GT funds and completly wipeout the secret squirrel money

I'm very excited about this and looking forward to owning it!

Wish me luck guys  :pray:

Thanks guys cool

I got the car - A one owner 88 Formula - 5 speed - SC 3800 - The amount of upgrades on this car are mind boggling

She is maroon in color with some surface rust here and their, but nothing we can't take care of with a little bit of elbow grease  biggrin

After getting her home I had to wrestle with a worn out hose against the firewall. This was going great until the rear deck lid key lock stopped working. I had open/closed it 3 times, even loaded my spare tool bag in the trunk along with some radiator fluid - Now it won't unlatch the deck lid LoL

Sure she needs some love but that's OK with Pappyz   :thumbsup:

Pappy:

Let me know if you'd like some tech help on one of your "inconvenient", middle of the week days off! (Us retired guys keep unusual schedules too).

My services can be had for some Mike's Hard Lemonade. (We might get Old Lar to show up as well)!  :confused:

    Thanks y'all

    1st thing is to get the trunk to open - mechanics at work said drill the cylinder out - wife made me call popalock
    They said they would call me back tomorrow

    As far as werkin on it - my shop is 2 guys short right now so we are having mandatory overtime fun
    I am going to apply for one of those 2 positions  biggrin

    Once we get the deck lid open we will show nuf have sum tech days

    Pappy:

    Here's a few thoughts on the trunk lock problem:

    -A generous application of graphite lock lube followed by working the key in and out to loosen the pins and tumblers. There's only 3 or 4 pins that control the lock. If the key worked before, some lube might help do the trick.

    -Jumper the trunk lock to release. (Does the car have an electric trunk lock switch)?

    -Did the 3800 install remove part of the trunk? If so you may be able to get to it from underneath.

    -Again from underneath, I believe the lock hasp bolts through the back trunk wall. You may be able to loosen the 2 nuts from underneath and pop the hasp loose in order to release the trunk lid.

    Just some thoughts and "free" advice. You get what you pay for!   badgrin

    Keep us posted, Marc

      Old Lar is currently up in New York.  I won't be back until next week.

      Worst trip in my years of travel with various accidents on the highways (detour function worked well getting around). Torrential rain from Virginia on Thursday to NY.  My 8 or 9 hour drive took more than 12 hours.

      I sure do - But Image Crap Shack is just plain Crap now a days

      I'll try with Photobucket

      I did scrape off the stickers on windshield   wink

      Look at them Big Monster Brakes  biggrin

      Probably going to replace the Supertrap exhaust tips with a more stock looking tip  cool

      Not going to give my opinion on this 3800 swap yet  :confused:


       We need to address a few things but it does run - Prolly going to have to drill out trunk cylinder

      I'm sure you pushed down on the deck lid while turning the key, right?
      If the key won't turn, lubricate the bejeebus out of the lock tumblers through the key hole.
      If it turns but doesn't pop open, the mechanism is likely just jammed. Pound on it some.
