Thanks for the advice/tips/info.

Today I got the balancer off, after having to make a special shaft to push on. Pulled the timing cover off and all that good stuff. Also got the cam in and timing chain and sprockets on thanks for help on that Bill! (that JP Performance crank sprocket goes on the crank very tight.)

But I donít have my FSMí* yet so I need some torque specs for the cam bolt and chain damper bolt. Along with any other torque specs if someone could list them.

I still donít have the old L67 out yet but at least progress is being made on the L32. Tomorrow I should be buttoning up the front of the motor and putting my springs and retainers in.

Cam bolt is 74ft lbs + 90 degrees... Best of luck on that. the 90 degrees is ridiculous. Probably makes it closer to 120ft lbs according to Bill W and my mental estimations.

I had Matt from Advance standing on the engine stand holding the flywheel and I lifted a wheel of the stand about 6 inches off the ground .. the side with him and the motor

I got the cam bolt torqued today & had no problem. I just stuck a pry bar into the teeth on the flywheel and rested the bar on a large pin on the back of the block, had one hand on the head. While my right hand man Rex torqued the bolt accordingly. It was pretty easy for sitting on a engine pallet on the floor.

We also installed the springs and valve locks today. My little magnetic pickup tool came in handy for removing the locks while the spring was compressed. My # 3 cylinder exhaust valve was leaking when we put air to it, so once we got the spring out tapping the valve a few times knocked whatever rust or carbon out of the way (It sounded like a gun shot too with 100psi or so in the cyclinder)

Aside from that not to much else worth mentioning was accomplished. Tomorrow during work Iím going to run to the GM dealership and pick up that PTFE pipe sealant & coolant elbows. Might be able to have the L32 mostly together tomorrow then Monday we can work on pulling the L67.

Heres pictures for everyone to look at.

Timing Chain and sprockets in (damn gasket material I need to remove more off also)


105 Comp springs & Manley retainers installed.

Interesting that your valve seals are different between exhaust and intake.

Looking good Ed.. did you get pics of the balance shaft/cam and crank/cam dots lining up?

I find it odd that you mention that Bill because I can't think of one set of Stock heads I've seen that had like valve seals.

Actually we didn't but they are lined up we made sure of that.

I went to the stealership around the corner form the shop and picked up these goodies. I also got $16 knocked off the price by using my "I'm not paying that much discount."



Front cover on


Rocker arms on


Dusty butt shot


Then after work I went to go help my dad play with a few things on his Camaro

I'm heading to the shop at about 11am to get some stuff done. The torque wrenches we have only go down to 25 ft/lbs. While the LIM calls for 11 ft/lbs I believe. Should I try to feel out half way to 25 ft/lbs or just torque them to 25 ft/lbs? Iíll search through the Mechanicí* tool chest and see if he has a wrench that can do in/lbs (132 in/lbs I need then) But I doubt it, I already know his ft/lb wrench only does 25lbs min.

My cousin was going to help me prep the L67 for removal but since he didnít come home tonight and stayed the night at this new girlfriendí* house I donít think Iíll be seeing him in the shop. If you have the # feel free to call and tell me how badd As* my car is going to be .

Head to a autozone or something and pick up a little torque wrench, cause that 11ft is important and you dont want to be doing double that . Just pay the 30 bucks or what ever and then when you are done... return it (its not your fault you were seeing vary results with the torque specs on the wrench )

Further analysis shows that anything 00+ may have had them.

Well here is an updateÖ Sunday I went to the shop and it was all locked up and the security system was setÖ My Secretary wasnít there like she was supposed to be so I went home grabbed the dog and went to the park and ran threw the woods and river instead.

I got some work done Monday afternoon, Tuesday. Now all I need to do is remove motor to trans bolts and torque axis mount & PS pump. I was looking at my front motor/trans mount; I think Iím going to replace my poly urethane mount I made with a piece of square tubing welded into my modified bracket. The 3/8Ē bolt I used for the mount is slightly bent so Iíll just use something with no give at all then.

Iím hoping to have the motor out by Thursday and the new one in next week. I need to pick up a new starter and a few other little things. Still waiting on my Custom Intense PCM which will allow me to drive till I can get to the Columbus area for my transmission and dyno tune .

I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow

Ed
