I bought my '94 850 with 171k miles on it according to the OBDI in 6/18. With the speedo broken at 125k, PO must have gotten the mileage that way also.

I've used Mevotech Supreme on my 850, decent price and greaseable, figure that I would try them because I used all Mevotech parts on my Toyota 4WD front end, 45k on them so far no problems. Try to get something that greaseable. Good luck

Re: P80 bypass ps pump, which belt, which routing

I believe eliminating the p.s. pump would take the tensioner totally out of play. If you find the belt, the slack you'll need to get it on would probably cause slipping at the very least and or not have enough tension to drive anything.
But just my guess. Good Luck

Re: Gearbox lower torque rod

I know after putting the polys on the upper engine torque rod, I regretted it and swapped back to the oem. Did notice a slight difference in shifting and engine response. It may not be as noticeable on the lower eng/ trans torque rod though. All depends on how you like your ride.

Re: Raw gas smell near fuel pressure regulator, 850t.

The vacuum line side of the FPR should have no fuel in it at all. Is that the line fuel came out of? If you haven't checked that line, pull the line and see.
