After a few weeks of not having any time to fix the Bonne, I'm finally back in action.
It all started with a broken power steering belt a few weeks ago. While it was off, I figured I'd check the status of the other belt and supercharger coupler. Pulled that belt off, and noticed a good 1/16" of play in the coupler. So I decided to let her rest and ordered the coupler.
Upon trying to re-install the other belts so I could drive her for a couple more days until my coupler arrived in the mail, I knocked the coolant pipe for the heater core loose, and she was gushing coolant. I appreciate eveyone who helped in getting that problem resolved BTW. $0.94 later, no more coolant leak (bad seal on the pipe).
So last week I finished the coupler install and proceded to install the blower back on the car and get things back together. Well apparantly I didn't clean the the old gasket material off the blower and lower intake as well as I thought I did and ended up with one hell of a vacuum leak and horrible whistling noise at about 3000 rpm. So yesterday I pulled the blower (again) and went up to the Buick dealer to pick up another $9 supercharger gasket. I spoke with a technician that said the gaskets can possibly leak on the nosedrive end of the gasket sometimes. Sure enough, that'* where mine was leaking from. I saw the marks on the gasket where air was seeping in and it was bent down slightly on the end of the gasket.
So installed the new gasket after thoroughly cleaning both mating surfaces yesterday, adn slapped everything back together. Man I missed that TORQUE! She runs smooth as hell now and no more rattling from the blower. Also got my 180º drilled t-stat installed while I did all this and she runs much cooler now.
Torque rules...L67 torque owns!!
