Hey guys.. Dan, sorry I didn't see your text until it was late in the evening and I was afriad to wake up the kids.

Fuel pump resistor is only on W body L67 equipped cars. That piece you have is simply a wire to send the signal straight through w/o resisting any power.

Magnet, the reason you were able to start without it is because once upon a time I did a water pump on my Bonne and left the cam sensor unplugged. Read up on teh code before I could work on it. The only thing is does is give you a 1 in 6 chance of the engine firing. It uses that to know which cylinder to start firing on. In my experience..it'* more like a 90% chance you'll start. From there..it'* not doing much at all. Sucks to have to go back in for that tho.

PS, When you do too many builds, you can start to miss the little things. You know that spare box of parts you have. Take your new parts when you get them and Danproof yourself by putting the spare magnet out of your spares into the gear. That way if you are tired, wired or zipping along you already prepped it and can't forget. Then that old magnet from the current motor goes into your box.

And...yea I recently did a cam install and after tightening the cam bolt I took it right back off, put the damn magnet in. Happens to all of us.

Had I looked at one of the pictures, I would have caught it, no big deal. Took about 2 hours and it was in. But I'm pulling the cover off again to check something. The angle of the picture I took looks like I may be one tooth off with the gears. Just want to make sure. Not a big deal, perhaps 10 mins to check. I really hope to have it running today.

Is this an aluminum or steel oil pan? If it'* the aluminum, I get you are loving how much easier it is to work with.

I assume you are not enjoying the sneaking in to get the oil pan bolts. IIRC that was the worst part of pulling the cover in the car when I did a swap on a steelie w/o pulling it out.

Actually, not that hard. The lower mount had enough room. Just wish I had a gear wrench in 3/8 size. Why does GM have to sneak a standard size in here and there.

I think I use a quarter inch shallow with a flex headed ratchet. It'* my favorite 1/4" ratchet. Looks like you are almost done with this one. Congrats, looks great, I'm sure it'll go well too.

Did a lot on this car. Not looking forward to the bug hunt though. I've got several problems taken care of, but who knows what else is waiting to show up.
