Ok..reinstall. All gasket surfaces were cleaned on night 1
Day 2 (yesterday) Cleaned throttle body and cleaned supercharger. (DO NOT clean a supercharger..the epoxy coating came off the rotors with regular throttle body air intake cleaner). I drank a lot with my buddies
Randy and AJ, we drank more.
I cleaned my positive battery terminal, replace bolt and spacer. Cleaned some underhood grime, did I mention we drank even more?
I need a much larger recycle bin.
Then we cleaned the fuel injector holes in the heads (they were full of dirt)
I snap the pic as Randy asks AJ to hold his hose
They did a great job on the injector holes
Beer in one hand..camera in the other.
We hung out and drank more.
I wasn't doing anything productive.
Day 3 Reassembled supercharger, put back onto car. Changed the o rings on each injector by using a pick to ease them off, clean surface and reinstall new one. A little vaseline on each made them slide into the fuel rail like butter. Aligned rail so all injectors were over their respective homes and gently wiggled each. Again..went right in like butter. Tube of vaseline $1.99, injectors sliding in nicely = Priceless.
Putting all the parts back on in reverse order was boring and you'd think you were looking at disassembly pics. And bang.. I drop one of the last screws going in. I'm looking and searching with the light. Do you see the screw I need?????
You are right..it'* sitting right there in the open. ahhh an easy one.
Bust part of the BCA while putting it all back on.. JB weld til I can get one. JB weld is a temp fix..not the answer and has since failed. (Don't ban me for that one Bill..but you had to go before I could tell you
Filled it back up w/coolant, turned key off and on about 3-4 times to prime the fuel rail. Cranked over and started right up.
Have test drive it about 40 miles so far. All is sealed up and running good.
Coolant elbow slides in and doesn't seem like it'* seated or in well enough to hold pressure, but it does.
right behind nosedrive..green thing is the coupler..rotors are on the back of this part
