Definitely. Only need about 10 different sizes for the whole car

That and a screw driver set, and you've just conquered a good part of that Bonneville!

(Sorry, the '93 SSEi, and '93 SSE got to comment, I figured we needed some lowly '93 SE in here.)

I have about 5 different pneumatic hoses, couple different lengths of black GoodYear, an old blue uhhh, what the heck is the brand, from the depot...a newer blue one and a rubber Ingersoll-Rand. I am not down with the plastic PVC coil **** Those things are bouncier than a jack russel terrier, and annoy you just as fast.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I know the three bolts that hold the ICM/Coil pack assembly to the mount on the motor are 11mm.

At least they are on first gen 87-91 cars...

I have two sets of gear wrenches and I love the stupid things... I have two sets because they were x-mas presents from different people on different years but I'm not complaining..

While there'* still chat about various sizes found under the hood, I have 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 17mm bolts and nuts in my engine bay. There'* a 17mm nut holding on my supercharger pulley.

Gimme a break guys. When was the last time you took off your ICM or supercharger pulley when working in the top end?

With the 10, 13, and 15, you don't need anything else to get the entire top end torn down for LIM gaskets.

Is that a little clearer?

Besides, who was the last idiot that actually tried to take a supercharger pulley nut off with a WRENCH?

how did you keep the rotors from turning if you are using a wrench and doing it by hand?

I put on a belt and had 1337ssei squeeze that belt with some giant vice grips. It was one of those "can we really?" things. It was a lot tougher to put it back on, and though it held for a bit, I had to use a compressor and air gun to have it actually stay on. But yes, we actually took off the nut with a 17 mm wrench.

That also would have been ME, with my 95 SSEi...used a cheapo plastic strap wrench to hold the pulley...never had any problems with it loosening, either.
