Re: Rebuild Time....

Where is the oil leak that was steam cleaned? If it was the valve cover, much easier than anywhere else. The leaking valve cover gasket is what allows the spark plugs to be soaked with oil, but it...

Re: Need info on Atlanta GA u-pull junkyards

I got to Atlanta a few days ago and was able to pull a subframe and a pair of rear trailing arms. I'm amazed at how little rust is on these cars down here, never seen anything like it. Thanks...

Re: 97 sc2

Does the motor work?

If it's leaking and the glass seal was compromised during opening the car door, that would be part of it, the other thing that happens is that the drain tubes get clogged and...

Re: Sub-Frame from the West

That's 3 to 8 of them stacked up plus a pallet to set them on, and shrink wrap to keep them all on the pallet, not just one cradle. You would not ship a single cradle on a pallet. :p

Re: Shifter cable ends (transmission side)

The part in the center of the grommet is a plastic bushing that fits inside the grommet, it is one solid piece and has a flat part that acts as a washer on the other side.

Probably the plastic...

Re: Sub-Frame from the West

Can't remember who, but one of our members from the midwest pulled some cradles from a western state and sold them off the trailer for $100 on the way back home.

Re: Sub-Frame from the West

I'm going to be in Atlanta for a few days, but time is limited and I still need to settle on a methodology for supporting the engine while pulling the cradle.

What about a couple of 4x4s with through-holes drilled in them and a threaded bolt hook, washer, and nut that can be tightened to lift the engine/trans assembly?

Re: Most shocking car discoveries (saturn or not)

When I got my SW2, was driving and somebody cut in front of me. Found out that the horn did not work.

Re: S series production data

There is a surprising dip in the SCx production for the 1995 model year, from roughly 50K down to roughly 20K, a huge drop. I wonder how many of the 95 SCx units are still on the road.

Re: My MMO piston soak experience

The basic idea is that it steam cleans the pistons and combustion chamber and gets rid of carbon buildup.

Re: Engines out...so what should I do

You are about 75% into a full rebuild. Was this engine an oil burner in any way? How many miles per quart?
Being that it was a spun bearing, it probably was, and you may as well do the...

Re: Anyone in MN do clutch replacements?

It does sound like a worn clutch.

Did you do the wire test on the clutch plunger travel? Always good to know if that is a factor. Thinking about this, short travel would allow the clutch disk to...

Re: Timing case cover problems

I had the front bumper off and 5 feet of leverage when I did mine. A 6 foot pipe would have been appropriate.
