L67 and L32 have the same shape, only different color. I believe it'* the L36/L26 NA motor valve covers you are thinking of.

I refuse to pull that engine out again
Ah, yeah that should work. Hopefully you can get the kinks worked out, good luck!

Thanks! I want to get started on it tonight, but the heat index is 115* and I dont have AC in my garage.

This is my wifes anniversary present and it was supposed to be done by now because our 4 year is tomorrow.

Oh well

I'm really upset right now.

I put the car in the air and dopped the passenger side subframe. Put the puller on the crank, started cranking on it and stripped all three bolts. They just weren't long enough to get a good enough bite.
Looks like I'll be headed to the local Fastenal and buying some new ones.
I'm really just upset that I have to put this off for another day.

Hang in there Jon. It will be worth it in the end. Look at how long I'm waiting for the Regal'* L67 swap to get done.

I got the bolts ordered yesterday. I ordered 6 just in case. I paid 9 dollars for the 6 PLUS I had to pay a 15 dollar mail deposit?!?! Apparently if I don't pick them up it will cost them 15 dollars to mail it to me.

Anyway, should be in today so I can get back to work on the car tonight!

Alright! Finally got to work on it tonight. I got the crank pulley off and sure enough the sensor was fuxord. So I replaced it and reinstalled the crank pulley. It only took me half an hour or so. The worst part for me was getting the subframe bolted back in. The front passenger side bolt was horribly rusted when i took it out. I put some anti-seize on it going back in but it still refused to line up and catch a thread. I bet I spent about an hour getting that one bolt in!




Then I saw a wire that was bare and hanging. It went to the oil pressure sensor. Whoever had this car before me needs a good smack in the head. It was black-taped together. So I pulled out the soldering iron and fixed good and right!




Oh and look what else:



FML I know how to pick em.

Well that'* enough for tonight... I found out the other day that I put the wrong rear exhaust manifold on so now I have to change that out before I get to drive this car. I think I've owned it for 2 months now.
