Heres some pics of the wok we did:
The night before, I got all of the gaskets needed to do the job. I ended up getting a pr
of Valve cover gaskets from my bro, but they are not for my year, so check the for sale section, they are going there shortly.
I was on the road at around 7am on Saturday morning heading to meet Bill at the JY
Saw a Ford Mustang on the back of this truck heading to the track. I would have gotten a better pic, but its hard trying to take good pics while driving.
For those who dontknow, this bus company Sucks ***, and Always break down but hey their prices are cheap. $10 bucks each way to NY and Back FUNG WAHHHHHHHH
Ok fast forward. After driving and driving and two JY'* later im at Bills place looking things over. I managed to pick up a tensioner pulley and headlight switch for my car.
This is a shot of the engine before anything got torn into
Here, you can see the SC missing
There it is
Next up to be removed? The intake. Notice the lack of the rubber gaskets on the side. There werent any
no wonder why I was leaking
Heres a close up of the area where oil was leaking
Bill putting on the other gasket......were getting there
Ahhh that should plug it up!!
While that sat, Bill was porting my intake with his Dremmel
What a fine job Mr. Bill did. He got good use out of his new Micrometer too!!
Well, just about done so its time to clean the parts up and start reassembly
There we go. Good as new!! we called it a night as far as car work was concerned
Bill started a fire and broke out the beers
Next morning was time to start it up and check things over.
After running it for a while we shut it off and was ready to now change the oil. (allot of coolant leaked into the engine while removing the intake)
I go under the car to losen the oil pan bolt and I noticed Coolant leaking on the passengers side Oh oh!! I get out and tell Bill, I panic, since I thought we would have to rip back into the upper end. Bill takes over and pulls the metal coolant tubing and finds this :(
Need some light?
The O-ring was missing a piece so it was time to replace it. After a few tries we finally get the right one and Bill takes care of the install. THANKS BILL!!!
We had some Taco Bell, washed the Bonnes and I was on my way home
At this point, I was soooooo tempted to do a WOT run, but the tranny wouldnt have liked it I dont think
so I took a pic instead
It was an awesome weekend and I actually learned something!!
Till next time...........
