Hmm..odd...the Vacuum modulator on that transmission has a plug over top of the vac port..is that something you did to protect it from water? Or is it something the previous owner did? that being disconnected would cause a headache of trany issues.

I noticed that earlier. Knowing Paul, I didn't ask.

Yes I plugged it to prevent infiltration of Simple Green and water...not mention little critters.

I think once I get all the big components back on, I'm gonna need your help to make sure I get all the details and various connections right.

I bagged and labeled most of the fasteners but did not make a very good pictorial of things like ground connections and vacuum lines....even though some are obvious....I need to make sure I place the bolts in the right sequence to ensure those ground connections, etc..

Spent more time cleaning and prepping.

I think I'll bring the alternator and starter in for a rebuild.......

I keep looking at the trani and have to restrain myself against pulling it out for a rebuild.......need to control costs. :(

Oh, Bill, is there supposed to be some insulation up against the firewall cause there isn't any Is it a dealer purchase?

Paul, I just looked at your pics, and every piece of insulation from the factory is intact. I'm not sure what you're asking for.

I don't see any missing firewall pieces. Looks complete.

I thought there might have been an insulating pad over the fan/housing area just behind the rear exhaust manifold........like there is on my 2000.

OK, I've run out of things to do...........any advice.?

You know what I do when I run out of things to do on the car?
Sit back, enjoy a cool one and think of what a good job I did

BTW, when you DO put it back in, be EXTREMELY careful not to bump that blower housing. The plastic cracks pretty easy, and it'* harder than hell to find a replacement, and even harder to do the repair.

You got that right. I'm gonna be real careful

The Engine builder called today and broke the bad news :(

The Crank and one rod didn't make it.

So I am couriering a cashiers cheque, including taxes and freight, to them in the morning for $3,085.

We should have it back by Monday.

The bill yesterday was $300 and another one today for $200
but here are some of the results.



Front exhaust manifold crack weld repair.
