  • Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I worked really hard on this video and I'm pretty proud. Please enjoy it. Also hey I started a Patreon a while back but haven't really said anything about it. Since I upload so sporatically, I have it set to every upload instead of a monthly thing, also only for my bigger videos (not short ones like my saturday projects). Please don't feel oblogated to support my projects/channel, but know that it would be truly appreciated. Okay thank you I love you bye www.patreon.com/ronaldfinger

    • Loving this series. One suggestion, invest in some impact sockets for your driver. Chromium ones work fine, until one shatters in your face

  • This is the first video segment where I have left a comment. I am blown away by your focus, energy, desire to learn new skills, work ethic, and strive for perfection. These character traits are quite scarce with many young people today. I grew up fixing up older cars when I was young, and those experiences have reaped huge dividends. I built my first engine, a VW, at age 21. I also have tried to pass this same mechanical passion to my two sons. I totally understand your selection of this vehicle. It is not only totally cool and sporty, but you will be the only one of a potential few others in Houston driving a Fiero. By the way, my experience with the "Iron Duke" came in 1988 when I purchased a used 1976 Mark Twain tri-hull boat with an OMC inboard/outboard mated up to the Iron Duke. Mine had a cracked head, but once repaired it ran great.

  • The first time it ran rough and hesitated on throttle input in the last video: me “fuel pressure”. Sadly there’s no time machines to make that knowledge useful. You got there though and replaced some extra bits too, good work.

  • If you watch Part 1 of my series on my 1986 Fiero GT, I experienced the same popping noise, that you experienced from the pin hole gas tank leak, I've bought everything new, all the lines, all the seals, all the injectors, every fuel component, even the stuff that goes inside the fuel tank, like the fuel pump and sending unit..... I'm about to be even more pissed off then you, if it ends up being the actual tank... (Which the previous owner told me they had professionally repaired)... Hey if it's none of those, at least now I'll know what the problem is....

  • Ronnie I suggest using ear cotton swabs to do touch up paint, not the small brush you used, the ear swab gives the touch up a more spray painted look instead of an obvious touch up spot, I'll be using it when I touch up some things on my 86 Fiero GT that I'm rebuilding, and starting a video series on

    • @Ronald Finger Four month later update: the tank I bought and cleaned leaked gasoline through the middle seam if you filled it up past half. Went back to the original tank and found it had a huge puncture hole in it. Used some JB Weld Steelstik, nuked it with toilet bowl cleaner, then sealed the entire thing with two cans of Red Kote. I've yet to put it back in but if this doesn't work, I'm not sure what else there is to do lol. Also, yes, I'm rewatching this series because it's so good and means a lot more to me now that I'm months into working on my first project car.

  • Nice work. I had an '85 2M4 SE, replaced the clutch in my driveway in Ottawa, Canada in January, did rings and bearings a few years later, every ball joint, loved that car anyway. :) Watch out for ECM issues. Engine cranks, gives fuel, gives spark, but won't start - until you push-start the car! Don't hack your wiring harness to do this, cut open an old TPS or MAP sensor (both on the 5V ECM bus) and read your 5V line to ground while you crank the engine. If it drops below 5V even a millisecond because of the starter, the computer will reset probably with every compression stroke loading the starter. It still tries to fire the plugs, but it gets the timing off enough that it gave me an intermittent no-start. Get an electronics guy to change all the electrolytic capacitors in the ECM. Capacitors go bad the same way rubber parts die - temperature extremes accelerate aging. www.avnet.com/wps/portal/abacus/resources/article/understanding-esr-in-electrolytic-capacitors/ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague (GM's electronics never had the "Capacitor Plague" as described above; the failures are the same but are caused by simple age.) My background is electronics. I'm sure a lot of EFI vehicles get scrapped because of a $0.50 capacitor going bad. I hope this helps someone preserve a beautiful car.

The Fiero had huge weak spots and I am sure some of them could have been rectified during the rebuild. Why the seeming over-dedication to keeping it bone stocK??
