Re: Top or bottom?

Only pull the sub-frame if you're replacing it with a new-to-you one, otherwise it's not worth the hassle/risk of dealing with the subframe bolts. If you don't live in the rust belt you don't...

Re: Short Shifter Linkage Issues?

I've never taken one apart enough to tell, the picture I linked to before appears to show the ball/pivot is fully encased by the plastic (what I called the shifter pocket) so all you'd need to do to...

Re: 01 sc1 overheated seized bottom end?

Unbolt flywheel & flexplates, keep the bolts with the item removed and bolt the flexplate on the good motor (remembering to keep the short bolts with the flexplate). Conversion done.

It's probably...

Re: 98 sl2 drilled out ignition now won't shift out of park

Cop didn't care when I got pulled over in a '94 Cavalier. $5/key at my local Chevy dealer yet one of the previous owners of the car broke it so the cylinder kept falling out...after 1 too many...

Re: Short Shifter Linkage Issues?

The cables don't like to bend so the spacer needs to match however much length is added to the bottom to keep the cables in the proper alignment.

All the one's I've seen were made out of...

Re: Short Shifter Linkage Issues?

Chop an inch or 4 off the top, weld an inch or two back on the bottom and put a 1" spacer in to fix the misalignment.

Info on the 'odd' shifter cables:...

Re: Splice ECTS connector?

For best results the wires need to be directly twisted together and soldered & heat-shrunk. IIRC the resistance values used are fairly low so anything that adds resistance will hurt the gauge...

Re: Wheel bearing replacement turned into something much more!

I had better luck with SKF (Napa repackages them under the "Gold" brand) bearings than Timken, guess that's what they get for not giving employee discounts... lol

Re: Tires & Ideas Rugged/Adventure/OffRoad 02 SL2

Jack up each corner, shove in spring spacers. Could be good for 1-1.5" of lift. Maybe metal zip-ties to secure in place.

Decent actual snow tires do great in most everything off-road except deep...

Re: Moving a engine from sw2 2k to sw2 96

I've _never_ dropped an engine out the bottom, not worth the hassle dealing with the freaking cradle bolts up here in the rust belt. Never bothered taking the crank pulley off either, though it may...

I know they make 3 bar MAP sensors for turbo applications, would they have any benefit for a NA application? Might be worth testing if the sensor can be had cheap enough.

Re: Any tricks to removing rear spoiler?

Re: 12.3 volr parasitic battery draw

Battery draw isn't measured in volts, it's measured in amps. Anything over about 300ma indicates an issue and even that much probably indicates an issue.

If you insist on measuring volts instead...
