Good afternoon Old Nuc !!!! On the DOHC. Is there a small rectangle shaped hole that releases oil on to the chain. It`s located just underneath the cylinder head bolt that's behind part of the exhaust cam sprocket. Thanks

Look at this picture, are you talking about the rectangular port that is just above the head/block joint and just to the right of the head bolt?

That is one of the oil drains that happens to return into the chain area.

OK, Cool that's what I thought. Just wanted to make sure I did not have a leak. are there any other port holes for oil to run through besides the two round oil seals ? I figure it would be a good idea to make sure nothing is clogged before I wrap this beast up.

Unless you put the head gasket on upside down they are open. The rest of them are the round bulges on the block that run from the lower flange to the deck. They do not plug up so it is not a concern.

Thanks, I`m replacing the o-rings for all the fuel injectors. The old ones are very dirty and greasy. I`m having trouble figuring out how to disconnect the electrical connectors. I feel like the retaining wires on the connector is going to bend or break.

Got em off. No.'s 1,2 and 3 appear to have some type of oil in both ends of the electrical connectors.

No, The only part you can grease is the finned rubber seals so they are easier to insert. Do not grease so heavily you can see it either.

Ok, The 8 seals are lightly oiled and secured back to the fuel rail. I did them one by one so I would not mix 'em up. These look like the Delphi brand I see on rock Auto. I also cleaned the connectors with electrical cleaner spray. so no dialectic on the wire connecters ? OK, Well there is another completed Saturn S-Series project in the book. Thanks man !!!!

Yeah, This is awesome. i,m doing stuff I never have thought i could do. Thank god for the net, Haynes, Old Nuc, Richpin06, Razorback and of coarse the Saturn S-Series.

BTW, The packaging on my Genuine OEM parts states it`s shipped from Springhill, Tenn. I thought they shut down. You ever need any part numbers just let me know. I have everything, including bolts and push pins, lol

I see. I have another question before I put the timing kit and cover back on. How do i tell the year of the s-series. I think my exhaust cam might be just a tad little bent. I saw a DOHC s-series cam at the junk yard and it looks like it sets better on the lifters. Are all the DOHC cams the same ?
