  1. try shooting a little starting fluid in the intake, if it does not start there is either a problem with the fuel system or the cam belt jumped.
  2. its a teves system. can't say i know much about it. I'm pretty sure that they use they same accumlator as we do( after all it was the jag guys that bought out all the old pn accumulators). Also don't let the diagram fool you. The lotus powermaster was modified to fit under bonnet. Best to try and get specs on the reatta system and see. Powermaster /teves service notes come up on ebay once in awhile.
  3.|outline the jag guys are using 25533770 with and different harness 12117277. don't know if this will work. This was use on the buick reatta 90/91. and are plentiful
  4. don't know what years it will fit although it does say it is the upgraded switch.
  5. there are 3 on ebay at this time
  6. my post from way back. don't know if the pics come up anymore very easy to mount up front of the car. don't even have to drain the coolent out.
  7. got mine from jae you can also do ebay look for powermaster abs or grand national . had them don't know if they still do
  8. I've also used it. The nice thing about this is it can be charged as a gas. Most other blends are charged as a liquid. This is important, if you still have a small leak the liquid blends will vent off at different points thus changing the make up of the blend. Also freeze 12 has lower operating pressure that many blends, and is one of the few that actuall get as cold as R-12. Plus no change over on oils is needed
  9. 3m makes a zinc spray I used that with a satin clear coat. Looks original.
  10. I've used freeze 12 in a 92 ford van and a 71 dodge Challenger RT. Both worked very well. The neat thing is you don't have to change the oil out of the system. You also use only 90% of the normal charge vs freon. If you can't get or use real freon 12 then freeze 12 works just great!
  11. about 15,000 miles. After running your car to operating temp, you can see if your chargecooler is working by feeling the top charger cooler with your hand( careful it may be hot) It should be cool to the touch( the same temp as the outside air). if not ,it's shot. I would replaced with an electric as it should last the life of the car.
  12. the accumulator *( new part number 25528382) is available from it's about $100. the pump is available from for around $250. You may have to call priorreman as the powermaster setup on the esprit is slightly different than on the GNX and the TGP's(seperate pump form mastercylinder unit) cardone hope this helps
  13. had the same problem with my 91 SE. Soaked the hubs with pb blaster, Then I jacked up the car and wedged a sissor jack between the tire/wheel and the suspension brackets. And slowly cranked on the jack. This was a tiedous process as you have to rotate the wheel at times so it would not bind on the hub. Finally came off without any damage. I then used a die grinder to open up a bit the inner wheel hub, and then for good measure used some good copper anti sieze on the hubs. Have had no problems ever since.
  14. It is a direct replacement . However the new unit has an allen head on it in order install it as opposed to a hex head. No big deal, but appearance is not exact because of this.
  15. As of right now the pump and impeller is still mounted to the engine. Since the impeller was shot to begin with ,there is no restriction( who knows where the little plastic bits are) but i've been running this set up for two years now with no problems. the chargecooler is cool to the touch and I now get 1 bar of boost
