Welcome! The first thing you probably want to do is change the timing belt. There are many resources here on rennlist to help you with that if its your first time.

Actually step 1 is to stop it from overheating.

Likely that the high speed fan isn't actually kicking on. Instead it's only getting low speed.

PO must have given you an extra discount for the rear 7" instead of 8" or are they all on the passenger's side? Did you at least get a labor deduction since the labor to change wheels is very intensive?
Welcome to the tank.

I think the overheating is probably a combination of problems. But I'll check out the fans, for sure.

The overflow tank is crumbling, for one thing. Have a new one en route.

I've got the original wheels in the truck. They are chromed, but as yet, not flaking.

Truck did good. 7 hours towing 4000lbs+ at 56 mph. Cruise control works! Pretty happy with my '85 6.2 diesel.

The fan clutch gave out on the way, so climbing hills was a little hot. Only a couple of those though. After dropping off the dolly at U-haul, I picked up a new fan clutch at Autozone. On the shelf, $35. (Same part S3, >$350.)

Hah. We have all been waiting for this to happen for years.... Can't wait.

By the way, you might want to consider changing the belt tensioner...there is an improved replacement

Low miles. The interior is super nice. Shifts 'like buttah'.

The body has 'been to the fair', though. It's been repainted. Missing paper labels here and there.
The front passenger fender is all wonked up. I think the rear driver's fender has had some work.

The don't-jack-here 'frame rails' are all squished.

Has a jump post cover, though!

Congrats Ken!!

Curious to see if the S4 will output 320whp after your tweaks or just produce a different curve than your S3.

oh, and remember to read the New Visitor thread on page one to get familiarized with this sort of forum concept.

Change your fuel lines.

Or you will die.
