Default Hello McGrath !!!

Hello Mr. McGrath,
I was looking at your engine'* picture and I was impressed by the size of the supercharge pulley.
What size is it, and what other modifications you made to the engine to install that it?
Can you also list all the other modification you made to your car?
This is my second SSEi and I want ot boost to up all the way to the top, like yours.
Thank you.

MMmmmm

Nearing the end of my ordeal..I found that removing and installing the accessory bracket/tension is one of the later items. With it out, you can reach the motor to trans bracket bolts, header bolts etc etc much easier.

And when you unbolt the power steering .. put a zip tie through a hole on the pulley and tie it up to the AC line. That will keep it out of your way while working on the oil pressure sensor and the backwards bolts.

Well I went to my shop today to rip some things off the new motor and maybe do something with the L67 thatí* still in my Bonne. Looks like this upcoming week alot will get done. I did this just to save some time during the week.


The motor sitting almost intact


Supercharger off


I was surprised the gasket came off whole!




Evils of Dex. Keep in mind this motor is only 2-3 years old with 35k on it!



Pulled the Lim and saw this! Now this is what I call a clean motor!! Thanks to Ed Morad




More clean stuff


Bye bye Manifolds


More work from our friend Dex. (inside of a ilder pulley bracket which also was broken)


Had her in the air to drain the oil



Oil from my old L67 looked milky after only having 100miles on it? The oil previously which was in my car when it started knocking I put 200more miles on it after the knock and it didnít look like this. O-well what ever happened happened now I have a new one!



These were broken when I pull them off the L32



Had this in the shop today






My friend stopped by real quick with his Comp-G


I also ordered my Northstar throttle body kit from ZZP today!

Anyone ever find it odd that the plastic gaskets have actual indents where they evenutually crack?

Ed..that idler bracket shouldn't have coolant behind it. I think that'* standard issue block rust that has nothing to do with dex. Just because staff has been mentioning the bad of Dex lately..we should try and not blame every thing in the world on dex (that'* why we invented the story of the white curse)

I only installed that filter when I changed the oil after the L67 had already began to knock. I changed the oil for the purpose of seeing if I had any metal shavings in there. It just so happened to be that the Fram filter in question was the cheapest on the shelf. Normally I run a AC PF 52.

I might have a problem then. When I pulled that idler bracket coolant came spewing out of one of the bolt holes. Thatí* the reason for all the kitty litter under the motor.


The next few days I should be getting a lot done on the car.

Bill, what was that stuff you were telling me about on the phone for the bolts? (My secretary had to run up to me and start yapping while you were telling me.)

Also when I got home today I had my N* kit here

yes...The bolt holes go into the coolant ports.. however there should not be open coolant behind that idler.

The stuff I told you to pick up was the GM PTFE pipe sealant. Use it on all bolts going into a cooling or oil area.

The ones to ensure you use it on:
Timing cover and water pump bolts
Lower intake bolts

Use vasoline, grease or oil to lightly lubricate any coolant elbow o-rings before intalling to make sure you don't cut/scrape one up during assembly.

Have 6-10 cans of brake cleaner and plenty of rags around for wiping any residue off gasket surfaces.

Looking very good so far..

And if possible..once the motor is out.. push your car outside and degrease your engine bay. It makes reassembly 100 times cleaner and nicer.
