      Buttoned her up with the new alternator, hood latch, and rear shocks + mounts. And it drives like a dream! I never get good pictures of it though, gotta change that soon. I also scored a set of volans for pretty cheap ($280) awhile back, idk if I told you all about that lol

      Oh yea, getting the pulley off of the old alternator was a PITA! There are parts of a screwdriver in the core LOL

      Nice. I see even in MN it has found its way to its natural habitat of being surrounded by boats LOL

      You should probably install a grill. I'd either grab a new waterfall on ebay for $30 or get an eggcrate. Everyone hates the waterfall because old ones look like trash. Clean waterfalls are actually not that bad.

      I knew youíd comment on the location lol!

      I have a waterfall grille, itís off because Iím not confident in the hood opening yet. Thereís a new cable but the latches still seem really difficult and I donít want to bust out the grille if they fail.

      Iíve seen the eggcrate on IPD, is there a better source for it? If not I might order it and a set of new rubber floor mats

      To get just one they're probably the best option. There are other sources but none of them make sense if you're in America. Viva has the all black one but personally I think the one with the chrome surround looks way better.

      The 850 is running really well! Compared to the other R lol!



      But Iím getting a P0172 code and the car is running rich, I can smell it.

      The caps on the vacuum tree came off so I put more on, but itís still running rich with the code.

      It stumbles pretty hard even when adding throttle with no load in park, every other vacuum hose is brand new, new MAF, and Iím lost lol

      Evan there could be vacuum leak at the rear fuel filter area or atop the fuel tank, or an evap hose, or a sas hose if equipped. Also check the rubber going into the fuel press reg. You said you checked everything. I just thought Iíd offer a few other culprits to consider. Cheers.

      Oh I didnít even think of these! Theyíre probably all sorts of dry rotted, unfortunately. Iíll have to pick up some tubing when I get more parts tomorrow. Are there diagrams handy somewhere that you know of? Iíve only looked at threads involving the engine bay lines, nothing specific to the rear of the car
