i'll make this my intro post too. i'm chris, as my user name states.
almost 20 years ago my father traded in his 1988 mustang gt for a brand new 1988 bonneville sse for my mother. once the bonneville was traded in on another car my mother started the "i liked my bonneville"
a few weeks ago my father found a 1995 sse i which has been sitting for 4 years or so. he said since your mother keeps saying how much she liked the bonneville i'll get it for her. getting it home and running, that'* my job.
so i trailered the car home, pulled the plugs and squirted some penetrating fluid in the cylinders to reduce the chance of a ring sticking to the cylinder wall. a few days later i spun the engine over by hand.
while the plugs were out i check that it had spark, it does.
it also made a horrid clatter while it turned over.
got me thinking and i took the oil fill cap off and made sure the rocker i could see was moving. compression tested the engine and found ~150psi each cylinder. that made me feel better. took the acc belts off and poking around i found the harmonic balancer is SHOT. the outer ring the belt ride on has rotational movement around the pulley itself.
first question. anyone running different sized crank/supercharger pulleys to up the boost? since i have to replace the crank pulley anyway i'd like to upgrade.
that leads me to question 2 and beyond.
is there a fuel pump cutoff safety feature? unsure if that was tripped or if stock pump is dead [old fuel all shalack'd]. fuse and relay are fine. if there are other pulleys i can buy what is the fuel pump i should upgrade to anyway? walbro 255? any injector upgrades recommended? plan on dropping tank this week.
cliff notes. crank pulley/ harmonic balancer is shot. are there crank/supercharger sets which will up the boost since i am replacing?
fuel pump and injector recommendations?
