I didn't. Bill told me my gen didn't need it. Don't remember what he used to reach in there.

Looking into my LIM, i notices a few ports are quite deep in...my bit is a decent size, but probably will not go in that far..what did everyone else do?
Glad its working Matt! Soon as I find that rear manifold you'll have another set to do!

Should be a common enough part to find if they are bad. Keep the patience and you'll get there.

Did some cleaning tonight
Used a copper scrubbing pad and wd40 on the rotors, they were gunked up really well.
Good to go now though!

Wow Matt. That SC looks brand new. When I do my pulley, I think I'll do the same.

Looking very good and very clean. Mortehl.. you'll need to be more careful with the rotors. Yours are epoxy coated.

yup the only coating mine had was simply, carbon, lol
After work, i am going to focus on some porting work on the LIM so I can atleast get the top end back together. The 2.2 is schedualed here tomorrow, and will be installed once the SC is back on the car.

If you got ANY debris or solvent in those needle bearings for the rotor shafts, or if the grease remaining in there is nasty, or if there'* little remaining, replace those needle bearings NOW. Don't let it go. You'll regret it if you overlook it at this point.

I made a VERY good point of not getting anything on that grease, there is still a fair ammount of it. Nice and blue. Not overly worried about them yet.
