ahh. well got out there and changed the fuel filter...definitely easier than it would have been dealing with the rusted fittings of an 87-91 gen, but no cakewalk. Apparently the purolator fuel filter I got is just slightly larger than a delco filter in circumference. the bracket just wouldnt fit all the way around it. if i put one side in the hole, the bolt wouldnt go in on the other
so I just bolted it...its tight enough so that there'll be no problems otherwise. In other news
, the PS cooler has to be removed to be able to deal with the filter with sanity intact, but when putting it back, I noticed it won't tighten in the least...some idiot stripped it.
so I got it in...but its wobbly...so i'll just add some wire to support it a little better in case of an accident such as road debris hitting it, it wont rip out my PS cooling lines.
Boy I tell yah though, those quick disconnect jobbers are SO much easier to deal with than those old funky *** metal lines they used to use. I love it
Its getting dark already, so I decided to do the transmission tomorrow when its cooler and when its brighter out.
I've been running Seafoam trans tune in it now for the past 130 miles. The shifts have already gotten better. Now just time to give it new fluid.
