When you get a chance...can you please change the title. Crank sensor really doesn't describe what one would find if they were trying to search for this information.

As the information in Techinfo article 38 indicated, you will want to very carefully examine the UIM before you re-use it. Check the date of manufacture, forcefully probe the EGR bore with a strong, sharp instrument feeling for softness, and check for warpage on the TB sealing surface and the LIM/UIM sealing surface, especially around the coolant passages to the TB. If you haven't already done so, you should not put this back together without a reduced diameter stovepipe. Best to have a heat shield for the UIM, too.

I barred the engine with a long handled ratchet and no resistance to report, thank goodness for that!! I would change the title of this thread, but my original question was concerning the crank sensor and it evolved into another topic. What if someone has the same senario as me and reads the thread thinking it is the cps when it is worse and gives them the heads up so they dont take it as far as I did with their engine locking up. I guess I could change it to wont start, but that is a common thread title. How would I change it anyhow once it has been posted? Lastly, I have ordered that uim kit they call the permanent solution for about a $100 or so I hope that works good. From the way it sounds, it is convincing enough.

Size or resize your images to 700 pixel width or less. This will prevent the need for everyone to scroll right and left to read through the thread. Save the image at a size less than 250kb. The webhosting service will downsize the file to that anyway and this will save uploading time. Upload your images to a webhosting service like http://www.photobucket.com Copy the line under the image that says image link - that will give you something like this:



Paste that into your comment. Check to see if it is OK by using the preview button.

If you ordered the APN UIM kit, you should be good to go.

hey guys, just wanted to say I havent rec. my uim from APN yet so I have a quick question on the aluminum LIM gaskets. Because they are aluminum is the torque spec different at all? Also, are there any LIM bolts that go through the water jacket in the heads that need sealant? I believe there were two of em' that lokked a little gummy but I was'nt sure which ones. Hopefully I get my UIM kit this week and I can finally get this thing on the road.
