i found these at a kmart or target or some such.
they seem kinda lightweight, but they do clamp on, and i like the stud connections.
blister pack- 1 black handle, 1 red + some wire terminals i didn't use.
lynx
by east penn
quick-clamp terminals(for post terminal batteries)

east penn manufacturing co. inc. had them manufactured in china. east penn probably doesn't manufacture anything directly.

just a mention about a good suzuki parts source.

trail tough in medford, oregon.

nice to deal with- very responsive and familiar with their
parts. good tech support. kudos brent&linda.

i'm having a good time with the afr guage, and am experimenting. perhaps i will invest in a broad band afr.
funny how much better she runs. kinda like her collar had been too tight and now she can breathe.
i'm getting some softtop mounting parts from trailtough. suzi's "rag top" is getting needed attention.
i still need to figure a fix for my heater fan speed control. currently it's off or high. something about some wire harness i threw away like a bozo.

poor little suzi had developed an oil leak.
oil leaks bother me, but this seemed to be from the rear main seal.
that seal only has about 5000mi. on it.
i decided to remove the transmission, since i haven't done that yet, replace the seal, and mabe stop dribbling oil.
short story: the tranny is back in. dodging weather.

she's getting closer to running for late april window.

don't you mean dodgy weather? we've had 40 mph wind and sideways rain here, enough to blow around my new Ramcharger even. was the tranny seal leaking? by the by, there are 2 early sidekick in a yard near me.

yo
i will expound... i am dodging dodgy weather.
and i hope it's not the trans leaking, 'cause that transmission/transfer case arrangement was not easy to manipulate back into position.
jury is still out on effectiveness of the repair- she has driven a few miles on the freeway and some street stuff- i wiped off the fresh drip.
mabe it'll stop.
hmmmm.
still not smogable yet. running too rich still.
pity. she drives nice.

suzi the psychic is legal for another two years.
she passed smog again.
good girl.
now i need to figure out the deal with her oil leak.
i am convinced - now - that i'm seeing gear oil.
i think i need to remove the transmission.....
didn't i just do that?
i want to run at the end of this month.
hmmmmm..........
must be a seal for that input shaft? surely it's replaceable.
2nd gear clashes a bit. if i have to open the case to replace the input shaft seal, ...........

hmmmmm..........
it smells like gear oil.
the engine oil isn't slinging off the flywheel or dripping off the back of the pan anymore. partial success, i guess.
mabe it won't rain this time.


upchk0406
suzi's blocked up again. drained trans. and transfer case.
input shaft seal available in the morning. no rain 'till mabe sunday evening. it could happen...........
i think it will be easier this time.
seems i need to remove some clutch fork/throwout bearing arrangement to access the seal.

the transmission/transfer case assembly came out easier this time. going back in was more controlled and direct.
i figured out how to replace the seal, but found the cluth lever was breaking.
[Linked Image]
the break was up where it splines onto the release shaft, so i welded the break(didn't mess up the spline) and added a little meat to the whole thing.
[Linked Image]
i'm kinda proud of this. i painted it. hides the weld some.
she's back on the ground.

i still need to put all the gear shifters in before testing(note the piece of glove for the transfer case outer boot works great and is reuseable) later today probably.

oh yeah- i replaced the rear output seal also. i don't know why it started squirting- it wasn't very old. i don't get it.


postest0408
leak is less evident. i have run a little hwy and wiped a couple of drips. we will see.

in my time with auto parts, the stores had some lines that were recombined with other product lines...for example the Beck / Arnley folks coming in to renumber OE and Bosch parts with B / A numbers. as a result of the being re-boxed, many really old parts were given a new snappy, hip life... my story just to say that you may have received an NOS seal that had weathered on the shelf.

nice to fix something in the driveway that could have broken on the trail? look great!

i suspect the deals on overstock and liquidation are too hard to pass up. i'll bet a lot of stuff can shuffle around for years before being sold to consumer. ebay stuff may lean that way?
good call on that input shaft seal- i should have paid more attention when i had the trans out before.
the old one was very brittle.
