Exhaust System. / Re: Where does the tailpipe hanger go

Shoot me a link to the Ebay listing, and I'll check my parts book for exact placement.   Note that advertised fitment on some Ebay listings for NOS hangers may be incorrect

Do you have your blasting cabinet set up in the front hallway to your house?  That's awesome!!

The cabinet is actually in my breezeway. My wife would kill me if I brought it in the house  ;D. Actually....she might just kill me anyway. With my 40' container in the backyard, as well as two trailers and now the Eagle....we'll let's just say she isn't thrilled with what I'm doing with the place. But my Daughter and I love it!

Thank you!

That's certainly a place to mount one, and if we can't find the factory location that will surely be helpful.  Still wondering what the two hole tab on the walker tailpipe goes to but that can just be a mystery. (=

Exhaust System. / Where does the tailpipe hanger go

Ok so wife and I are stumped.  The tailpipe has a hanger mount.  There are hangers for it (new old stock on eBay right now.)

I can't find where on the body this would connect.  Been looking all around back there and just don't see it.

Thanks!

Rock auto will ship to Colorado just not to home rule cities.  I rent a post box in superior and they deliver there no problem.

So find someone outside of a home rule city or a post box you can rent outside of one and that should do you!

Good luck!

Transmission Shop / Re: Clutch master cylinder rebuild kit

I checked my parts books; and there was a boatload of different cylinders over the years:

J5359822 - '80 with GM 4-cyl (MC & reservoir one-piece casting)
J3236757 - '80-'83 with GM 4-cyl (MC & reservoir are two separate service parts)
J3238951 - '80-'81 6-cyl (prior to engine code 011C03)
J3238493 - '81-'83 6-cyl (after engine code 011C03), '84-up GM 4-cyl, and '83-up with AMC 4-cyl
J3238951 - '84-up 6-cyl

Repair kits listed are:
J8132781 - '80-'83 with GM 4-cyl
8983500677 (or 83500677) - '84-up with GM 4-cyl, and '83-up with AMC 4-cyl
J8132911 - '80-up with 6-cyl

Probably doesn't help, I know.

Well, I bought the Crown kit from Summit Racing that AMC of Houston mentioned and compared it to the one from RockAuto and they seem identical.  I then took them both to a different transmission shop and asked them to rebuild my clutch cylinder.

I got a call the next day; it turns out that neither of the kits will fit my master cylinder.  He had my cylinder taken apart on the bench and showed me the original seals vs. the ones in the kits, and both of the kits were visibly smaller in diameter.  I don't understand what's going on, unless some previous owner replaced my cylinder with a non-standard one.  He is now trying to look at other random rebuild kits to see if he can find one that will fit.  The whole situation is pretty discouraging.  This may be the issue that makes me just walk away from my Eagle.

If anyone is looking at this thread because they are trying to rebuild their clutch master cylinders, all I can tell you is that neither the RockAuto or Crown kit will fit my 1984 5-speed Eagle.

That's such a touching story!  Hearing about another lady getting into cars is always great

Thank you! It's been a blast teaching her and watching her learn. And I appreciate the tip for the radio! Here are a few pics of her getting her Eagle on  :)
