Yeah, I already got the water pump, TA mount, and everything installed but the PS pump (I know which bolts those are), accessory bracket, ICM, and a few odds and ends before starting.

I'll grab a pic of the bolts I have left over, I just have a few that look similar, but confuse me on where they go.

Next time... I am marking and bagging all of them.

Here are some pics of the bolts left...Quarter used for size reference -






And there is one more stud just like the one above, only slightly bigger in size.


Power steering pump bolts



Hopefully this helps, I am kinda panicking because I have a job interview tomorrow.

I gotta think about this. But you're in serious trouble if you have all those left over. I assume the alternator is back on the car already?

IIRC, accessory drive got 5 bolts...4 on the cylinder head, and one underneath, on a bracket by the PS pump.

That stud is probably for holding the coolant bypass/heater hose to the accessory bracket. The bolt (fairly short) with the long shoulder should be for the short alternator bolt (forward bolt).

IIRC, there'* only 3 going from the ABracket to the rear head, and they should be the first 3 pictured.

Ok, sorry I didn't reply earlier, but I found where all the bolts go. I just had to figure which one went where, and all is well. No bolts left over! T-minus 1 hour until startup.

Ok, I am at a loss.... I drained the oil... clean... so i proceed to pull the filter off...


Absolutely NO oil in the filter whatsoever... What did I do wrong? Is my engine toast? I am so worried now... I don't even know what to do.

You didn't pack the oil pump with vaseline to help prime it. Fill the filter with oil, disconnect the ICM, and crank the motor until you get oil pressure.

I bet a know what you did....
Did you take off the oil filter adapter? And if so, did you put the spring and cup back in it?
And...you do know you are supposed to fill the oil filter with oil before putting it on the motor, right?
