The Hagerty Insurance Post !!!

Went through my broker and stated my case about the car. Not sure if that helped or not, but it could not hurt when they are talking to the folks at Hagerty.
Essentially when asked if the car was modified, I answered yes but to what degree that will matter, I am not sure. Most parts are NLA (No Longer Available) from the dealers and have been for years, Dodge doesn't even know what type of car I drive, while Mitsu is still quite useful and I can walk in with part numbers if need be; but I usually use the internet for parts orders.
You can't get replacement manifolds, turbos, and a myriad of other parts, so yes the car is modified but I said it is using all Mitsubishi parts where I can. Check one for "stock".
I asked after getting the quote (I will get to that soon, promise!) if it would matter to install adjustable suspension or wheels that were still the same size overall ( rolling circumference/diameter), and the broker said that essentially as long as the vehicle wasn't modified, in that it wasn't lifted, then suspension changes and wheels were a non-issue.
So, my age now 40, clean driving record in the past three years (minors offences only stay with the record in Ontario for three years, major offences are six years), and insured since I was 17 came in at the following:

1989 Plymouth Colt 200 GT turbo.
$20,000 agreed upon value. ( I had over 17k in receipts plus other parts to account for that brought this to over 18k, not including the car)
***Full replacement at 20K in the event of a total loss.***
Rider for Cherished Salvage Coverage to keep the car should it be a complete write off.
$604 CDN/year with whatever options were selected as similar to my other daily driver.
Also, note that in this case you have to have another full time vehicle for driving to work as the bus and motorcycles do not count.
Other drivers need to be insured on other vehicles or possibly even excluded from driving the car ... in my case, not a problem for a few years yet.
They will need a copy of my ownership, an online questionnaire to be filled out, copy of the daily driver insurance policy, and one color photograph of the car from the outside.

This is very good news if others have already established insurance with Hagerty for the Mirage/Colts, as this will help add to their total and move to establish a further presence on their radar. They were listing this car in their online quote database, so this means that likely Galant VR4's will be there already.

Hope this helps some of my fellow Ontario forum members as much as it will members all over the USA, because that is where Hagerty started and is still biggest.

Hagerty LLC is underwritten by Elite Insurance Company

That's great news for people with really nice examples of these cars with legitimate money and time in them like yours.

Funny story.

Insurance story 2.0

Seems insurance wasn't willing to go with 20k per the last person on the phone with my broker, based upon my photograph.
The underwriters offered 4.5K.

To be continued as I submitted my lists of receipts and added some engine bay pics to prove this car had been gone over, and thoroughly.

On a more productive note, 1+ hr idle time outside on the weekend, to help shake off the cobwebs and dial in idle and prove out the vacuum leaks/boost leaks.

Need to confirm TPS voltage at idle, and get flow per rev to 0.25ish range as it sits a little high. Most of the way there.

On FB, people have been seeing my throttle body rebuild, so those photos and many more are lying in wait, as the process continues.

I installed a spare original style metal tip ISC, which was one of two spares I had lying around, because this guy ... has spares and spares of the weirdest stuff!

Car insured for agreed upon value of 10K, current as of June 4/2019. That is the good news.

Bad news, tow home due to hot restart and running incredibly lean or barely able to run at all. Silver lining - Hagerty car club covers first 80 miles or so, of towing. I ate into that a little bit.

Got the car home and went over it, but by the time I plugged in the laptop after it had been in the garage for a while (but 1+ hr at the break down spot had no effect), the car ran fine.

So, was it fuel related? Some suggested so, and I put on a new OEM cap to make sure that venting function, does exist and no suction was created in the tank system when warm/hot from sitting on a hot day.

I have a new spare gas cap which is a cap-less style as it is called, so the nozzle goes right in the cap, and opens a little flap door - nothing more than that.

I was curious if fuel related problems could be caused by my vacuum routing of the fuel pressure solenoid or if pressure was an issue to begin with and or if pressure after shut down was bleeding off by design (flow versus bleed down to meet oem requirements per some enviro emissions law), and aeromotive says in their literature that they focus on flow and as such, it will bleed down the moment the fuel pump is shut down, and pressure is therefore relieved as it follows into the return tube to the tank.

Decided to open my SX Performance/Buschur Racing style AFPR. Diaphragm torn on one side, fuel bubble popped as the vacuum hose was drawn off the vacuum nipple, and more fuel evident in the cap area where atmostphere alone, is supposed to be.

Backstory to the SX/Buschur AFPR - it is a bolt on affair. Nothing simpler by design - one o-ring at the rail, and some parts inside the FPR to balance and keep things separated. Turns out the no longer produced top SX portion with the bottom section Buschur part (produced by ... see tuners thread on this one), had a new lease on life. Edelbrock was reported to have purchased SX Performance and as such are offering replacement diaphragm/FPR kits. Parts were listed in a thread on Tuners. I found the part numbers and link from Tuners, and was offered on Jegs.com and summitracing.com to name a few. SX performance may still have the parts too as the OEM number in house for them was also listed in that thread.

I believe the part number is as follows based upon my order through Summit Racing.com: "EDL-178010
Fuel Pressure Regulator Rebuild Kit, Diaphragm Type, Kit
(Mfr. #: 178010)"

I will add some pictures to show TB work, FPR issues, and ISC stuff. This may take some time.

Pics. The ISC show was the wrong type, in that the tip not shown, was the wrong shape. It should have been skinny and long, versus the flat stub like one as shown from the other side.

I did install socket head bolts that allow access with allen wrenches or ball socket extensions for use with short ratchets. This was especially good for the TPS, and adjusting it without needing to find space for an 8mm wrench end or a JIC head screw driver (remember all Japanese cars of this era use JIC type bits, NOT Phillips!).

Shown would be my SBC kevlar clutch versus the same model that had issues with rivets stampings and even had the better Exedy center section, but unfortunately couldn't use that one. It had to go back to keep the one with no issues.

Flywheel before sanding to match Tim Zimmers recommendation for grit prep.

Removed and proved the FIAV was moving from freezer cold, to 90 C and up.

All channels cleaned and reinstalled FIAV cap and internals with blue loctite on the threads of the cap.

Cleaned up the OEM ISC as pictured with silver metal cap. Had at least on spare hanging around too ...

90 DSM 60mm turbo throttle body is identical to a 1989 Mitsubishi Mirage turbo throttle body. The only difference is in the bore or lack there of through the center, and the corresponding throttle blade/plate change to suit.

Should I ever install a newer updated ISC, I would be asking the company that made this adapter to check out their connector stock, as I had to sand and file the ever loving jebus out of those areas that came into contact with the OEM connectors, in the worst way. It works as it should now, but the plastic was bowed out considerably and all around.

How my system is configured, wire locations, etc. Remember that 1989 Mirage Turbo wiring is identical to 1990 DSM turbo wiring!

SX Performance/Buschur Racing setup - complete with torn diaphragm!

This might explain my grams per second reading high and my maf comp being a little off where it was last season.

Vacuum leak, yep ... but fuel then being ingested into the intake manifold where it should not be!

Sealing up the vacuum port threads with a little OEM approved thread sealant.

Every one of those I've ever seen leaked and people have nothing but issues with them, it is also near impossible to get another diaphragm.

Also I can't see any of your pictures, every post has "You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post." attached at the bottom of each post?

I logged in and all pics are up. That said, are you logged in when you can’t see the pics?

We will see what happens with a replacement diaphragm. If it works, hurray. If not, I had to try it first before installing the aeromotive.

Strange. I get that message when viewing as a guest, but it all works as it should when logged in. I think all the attachment photos work that way, once uploaded to the site.

Maybe this a good question for Nate.

That’s strange.

I would contact natas, because permissions should be okay for anyone to view the pics.
