The nosedrive spin technique is interesting.

Gotta make sure things pressed correctly. They'll spin freely at that point, but make a very slight noise due to the new (non-lubricated) bearings.

The magnetic drain plug will capture all the 'break-in' material that comes off the bearings, preventing further wear.

Note that I also applied Loctite 609 around the nosedrive seal outer circumference after pressing it in, and before installing the retainer.


Here'* where they sit now:

That'* 2 hours of painstaking masking.

Still have to do these (a real pita):

How are you going to fit in all of the list of things to do and watch the Superbowl, or can you perform some of those tasks while watching?

Superbowl is tomorrow. I'm almost done now.

The GenV and a few misc pieces are already coated and dried. I'm coating my M62 now, and running pieces to the oven.

Got alot done today, very much closer to install, but first a comparison between the Series 1 and Series 2 LIM'*. Why was I able to achieve such good thermal efficiency? The Series 1 LIM allows for a much wider core. Look at the comparison:

Series 1 on the left, Series 2 (L67/L32) on the right.

Still need to solder up my final IC connections and nail down routing of the water lines. The mini-meet next weekend will be a good time to do that, as well as hack up the front of the car again and put in some reinforcement to allow for the new IC front radiator. Very, very close to being able to install on the new motor.

well I guess I can pretty much count this out as being able to happen on my car then. The s2 width sure got smaller!

The bottom of your M62 is beautiful!

Don't count it out. You just need a narrower core. Or trim the fins on the one I chose. I had to trim one corner to jog around a PCV passage I couldn't breach in the LIM machining.

Bottom of the 62 looks pretty good considering the patchwork. See the little trails of dimples in the patches? That'* duplicated on the LIM, but staggered. When the gasket is trimmed for the machining, it'* in two pieces. That dimple pattern will help bind the sealant that has to bridge the gap between the gasket halves on each side. Remember the thickness of the paper gasket. It'll easily withstand manifold vacuum and 13psi of boost.

You must absolutely love Bonnevilles/Cars. Wink. About how long does it take you to p&p a LIM ? Say from an L27?

A Series 1 or Series 2 L67 LIM takes me under an hour if it'* stock head ported.

Nearly 3 hours if it'* overported to match my ported heads. L27 will be somewhere in between because of the longer runners. You can do it in a couple hours with a dremel.
L36 takes a couple hours also, simply because they're the worst of the lot out of the box. This includes port matching, smoothing, gasket surface prep, and cleaning the injector bosses.

I actually use the dremel for very little now other than final cleanup work.
