Any suggestions then on how to work with the fully threaded bolt from Intense? I ordered it a couple of weeks ago and I was going to try my hand at this swap on the weekend.
Also, I read a quote on another thread around here that "If you ask a mechanic who'* never done a pulley pull but says he can handle it no problem...stay away and find someone else or do it yourself".
Um, I'm no mechanic. I mean, I have bolted on some basic performance parts on a big block (high intake, headers etc) some 20 years ago but, again I have no mechanical training. I'm I "in over my head" here?
What other kinds of problems might I encounter (notice that I have to remove the fuse box and overflow container etc..). I was planning on doing the swap to an INTENSE MPS 3.4 while out at the lake, but now wonder whether I might even strand myself out there if something goes bad.
BTW - I know I can run the car w/o the SC -- been w/o my SC running for a couple of weeks already without any problems other than slightly poorer gas mileage.
I also know to do the work on a COLD engine (and to possibly consider warming up the pulley with a torch to expand it a bit)
