PostSubject: My latest OCC, what a Leaker   Sun Oct 20, 2013 5:20 am

This is the newest addition to the fleet. A '91 OCC, Gray with Red Leather guts. 62k, Posi, Tow package.

It came from a PA dealer via CraigsList, but it was a private sale. Car pix looked good, Title copy looked OK, Carfax was OK, price was $3200, shipping was $600. Whats not to like?

When it got here the fun began. The title he sent me was not acceptable to WI, he filled out the back but never put it in his name so I had to send it back and it took him 4 weeks to return it.

It used a half inch of coolant from the tank every trip, the bottom end rattled on every start after sitting for more than a few minutes, Neither rear door window was on track, the RR had BOTH sliders broken. Broke antenna, smokers car, all the ashtrays were full. Rear wiper was a pretzel, glass shocks were junk. One flyaway was missing.

The oil cooler lines have been removed and plugged, it has a plastic radiator that wouldn't allow the cap to seal. I filed the neck area to get a cap to fit and work right. I drained 7 quarts of slime from it and put in 20/50w with a fresh filter. Still rattles, so I guess it's time for an L05. I suspect the cooler lines leaked and the previous 92 year old owner it ran out of oil.

There was a leak in the cargo area. I dropped the headliner and used brushable seam sealer on all the nuts, I think it sticks better and lasts longer than silicone. Still leaked, so I looked further. The right side window seal is junk, heres how it looks in real life.

Other than those issues, it's tight and drives like a real fresh car.

Nice looking! The little stuff is annoying only for a short while. You will have an awesome rig in no time. That is one heck of a seal leak in the video! Will you teak the window out and seal with fresh bead or just try to work in a seamfil sealent?

I did a post on quarter window replacement. Get an oscillating cutter from Harbor Freight. Make the black blade into a double knife edge and remove about 1/8 of an inch from the end, so you do not scratch the paint on the outside. Remove the glass from the inside only, except for the front edge. There is a screw on the bottom under the trim behind the rear door.

You'll love it once you sort it out. With those miles it has a ton of life left.
