Got the magnet in and just waiting for now! But other? now
Ok got the dang thing in at last!!! How much JB weld is good? I think I used a bit too much as I always tend to worry about using too little of things like that, I think it will be ok however since there seems to be a lot of it left over on my tools that I used to put the magnet in with.
I have seen people saying that they ran there car up to 5000 rpms and it lost the magnet and upon downshifting it lost the magnet, are the Bonneville’* really that touchy that you cant drive them a little sporty at times?
If so I am afraid I might have made a really bad decision on getting the car. I love the car and the style and such, but compared to my other cars the Bonneville is a little smaller HP so I might drive it harder then others would. My current cars are a 03 G35 4 door, 91 300ZxX NA, 94 Maxima Se (I work at the airport so I have lots of cars but have little time to enjoy them however!) I tend to drive the Bonneville about like I drive the Maxima and I don’t think its too ruff or harsh and haven’t had any issue with the Maxima in 25k besides all the typical stuff as goes in most older cars. I do however so love how smooth the Bonneville shifts gears on the highway (its awesome) cant feel it downshift out of OD into Drive only way you know it really did is that the tach jumped up and the car started going more.
Which’* brings me to another question also, I had a friend in Louisiana that had a 89 SE and his car always ran super low rpms on the highway and so forth, what rpms is normal for 50-60mph as I think back and his was like around 1500-2000 he had the car since new and had taken really good care of the car and still has it as far as I know last time we talked a year ago the car was around 280k of course Gm replaced the trans sometime back so its not all real miles on the car but for as little as he has had to do its awesome!
Thanks again for the help, hope Thursday brings good news when I put her back together and crank her up!
