We are forgetting about the trani for now.

The engine has been shipped to the rebuilder and I expect it back early June.
They are delaying the rebuild until I return from South America.

The long block weighed 320 lbs and cost me $87. to ship one way 80 miles to Vancouver........crooks!

Made a bonus score at the auto wreckers today picking up a few misc parts.
Found a Bonne cab with the FE2 suspension and snapped up the front sway bar. It'* the big solid one.

Got to go back tomorrow and try to wrench off the oil pan level sensor......someone broke the connector off.

Couldn't find those hood strut clips though..... :(

Can you get me a price on the rear sway bar and rear springs?

Paul, your 94 already HAS the big fat FE2 swaybar. Sell it to John.

I was going to mention that, but figured he'd find out quick enough.

Bill, I know this is the Grizz thread but I have an 00 Bonne and that'* what the bar would be for.
I am not modifying the Grizz at all from stock.

I think the FE2 bar will fit. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The rear bar and springs are still on the car and very difficult to get at.

Front bar only cost me $20. complete with brackets and bushings.

Paul, all SSEi'* by default got the FE2 larger bars. Both of your cars already have them.

No Bill, mine is 1/16" smaller in diameter and is hollow as opposed to this larger solid one.

The Grizz is still down but the Engine Rebuilders have begun the rebuilding process.

We expect to get it back next week.

I won't possibly be able to get it all back together and in the car before I leave the country again but I do intend to pick away at it.

Yesterday I cleaned up the intake manifold.........no, not in the dishwasher this time .

Disassembled the exhaust manifolds to inspect for cracks. Only found one big one in the front manifold. I used the fill it with water trick. The rear manifold looks clean with no cracks.

We got some TR6 plugs and intend to gap them from .035 to .045. Is that right Bill
180 drilled stat.
Oil pressure volume kit.
Should I be disassembling the oil pump on the front cover or leave it alone?
What about the seal? It wasn't leaking.....

Damn magnetic drain plug doesn't fit.........it'* got the wrong thread pitch.....must be for a Series 2 engine.

I intend to also replace the water pump while it'* easy to do. Should we replace the cam sensor and crank sensor

Anything else we should be doing now?

If you buy a Timing cover gasket kit, the new front seal will be included. Simply pry out the old one, and carefully tap (or press if you prefer) the new one in.

If you decide to take the oil pump apart, make absolute sure you have the right torx bit to take the cover bolts off. I strongly recommend you pull it apart, check for excessive scoring, chips on the gears, and reassemble with vaseline packed in it. I would use blue threadlocker on the bolts, I know I am.
