So ive got an enormous list of things i want to replace on the galant before i take her to get road worthied, however most places ive rung/shopped online list several variants under my car, and at that for the hatchback aussie delivered car if they are the same. Because i dont have a VIN number, only a chassis number being 88 it makes it even harder to confidently choose which parts are right, so im hoping that i can be a lazy f**k and get the help of you blokes and see if you guys can give me part numbers i can confirm at somewhere like spares box who just list every possible option and wont tell me if its right or for another spec.
I have a 1988 VX-S galant. Auto. NA. 2WD. If i need to give more information let me know.
The parts that give me several options are
Rear wiper, are hatch and sedan the same blade? not just the insert, but the whole assembly that clips onto the metal arm.
Plugs. Not sure what bosch plug i need or if i can get a NGk number i can cross reference sparesbox only do bosch. N/A not turbo as well.
Radiator upper and lower hose. They list several mackey and gates variants, all of say upper and lower, but also look different from one another..
Thermostat same deal several different part numbers.
Auto service kit can someone confirm ryco RTK62 is correct.
Accessory belts. my 88 model doesnt fall into any of their year ranges. and I have no a/c sample either. anyone have a/c p/s and alternator ones handy?
Water pump holy crap about a dozen different types... thankfully looks like the timing kits are all the same.
Front and Rear rotors and pads. Theyre saying one fits all HG galants is this correct? NA and turbo?
Im pretty sure ive got everything listed that probably should be done but while im here, if there is anything else that someone can think of that would be best to change with the car sitting for several years it would be appreciated. So far my list is
air fuel and oil filters, oil, plugs, wiper blades front and rear, upper and lower radiator hoses, heater hoses, auto trans service and fluid, front and rear rotors and pads, fuel pump, accessory belts, water pump, timing kit, thinking about getting a VRS kit if cheap enough dont intend on doing the head gasket but itll give all other gaskets that id need.want to do. My other query is what injectors did they come with and will any other 4g injectors go straight in that i might have around or would it be best to get mine cleaned? Tyres and thats about it.
Hoping this will all come in under 1500 bucks so with a regas/cert and rego itll be 3000 on the road refreshed and ready for action
