After 10 years of searching and many projects later (1969 Austin Healey Sprite, 1970 MG Midget, 1972 Oldmobile Cutlass Supreme, 1969 Schuster jet boat and a couple of houses) finally purchased a 1972 Satellite. I picked it up about 8 hours from my house in Hemet, CA on my son's birthday and barely made it back in time for his party on 23 December. Car is a floor shift, AC, EV2 car. After several stops along the way, I got it home late Christmas day and made room for it in the garage with barely enough room to squeeze by on each side, as my wife thinks the garage is a great place to put her junk. Anyways, the guy I bought it from stated that it had a carburetor problem, but otherwise was a solid car. Today, I put in a new battery hoping that it was a carburetor problem and after reassembling the carburetor linkage, which was disassembled and replacing the ignition lock got it to turn over. After some diagnosis found out that I have air and fuel, but no spark, so proceeded to replace the cap and rotor, coil, ignition control module and went to fire it up and the starter relay fried. Went back to O'reilly's picked up a new starter relay, put it in and all I hear is click with a charged battery. At this point it's too late to go pick up a new starter or starter solenoid so I'm stuck. Anyways this was a great first day, I haven't had this much fun in months working on a project. The plans for this car are to keep it hemi orange with the automatic, restore the interior (which I currently need a drivers seat for) and replace the 400 with a 440-6 fuel injection setup. I'll be posting pictures of the car as soon as I get a chance to take them and will update this blog as I make progress, just got to adopt my stepmothers view that there ain't no such thing as too many pictures.
