He showed up a bit after noon and we got right to work. He got here about 3 mins after UPS showed to deliver his MPS and thermostat.

It was fun watching him struggle with the back. But I finally gave in and got the last two.

Changed out his thermostat as well.

You will need to ask him. He was pulling 4* to 5* of KR. He needs a bit more work to support that 3.4" pulley.

Nothing he did involved anything that would cause a problem. But I had mine on.

Look like fun. I have never seen anyone change plugs quite like that though.

X2...I can get my arm over the alternator and snake it along the firewall and get all the back plugs. Of course I leave some skin here and there as well.
