That large screw you mentioned is the stud that goes into one of the bosses for the TAM. I ran into that when I was transfering engines on the Boozer.

I forgot. You're a 92-99 NEWBIE.




I now remember where it goes. On the block, near the front cylinder head. There might be a Torx or internal hex head bolt that is blocking that off...if it is, it has to be removed and that stud inserted in its place.

Yes I am a Series 1 virgin.

The stud is definitely not for the TAM but possibly the EGR pump that mounts on the drivers side of the front cyl head.

You say it'* on the block What is it for

Its one of the mounting points for the TAM bracket. Look to see if there is a hole in the block, in the lifter valley, above where the water pump is, close to the front bank. If there is a bolt of some sort there, it needs to come out and a stud put in its place.

EDIT - looked at the pics. There is a hole there...no bolt or stud. It needs to be studded before putting the TAM bracket in place.

No, I already have that stud mounted.

I found it

Good thing I took some disassembly pics.

It'* for the EGR, like I had guessed. Here it is in the pic beside the thermostat.

Thanks anyways. I will still need some help when it comes to the accessory bracket bolt and ground locations.

Two studs that size, and one shorter. Shorter is crossover heatshield/TB bracket. two others are EGR and ICM mounting in the front cylinder head.

Sorry I wasn't here earler. Glad your pics paid off. you should have called, *******.

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 H*** to find a replacement, and even harder to do the repair.
Ugh...Ohhh.....

I spent much of the day detailing the interior and exterior and on closer inspection discovered this...... :(

But there is insulation under it.....so it can't be sealed...is it?....or rather shouldn't it be? I don't think so. Probably just a heat shield that was constructed of poorly selected plastic material that could not stand up to the heat and disintegrated. It is very brittle.

I would expect this from something made in China but this is American made.

Clean it well, and use RTV.

Blower housings on the S1 (if you hadn't noticed already) are not the plastic the S2 has. No sweat on that.
