    Main Bearing Specs

    I remember struggling with this on my rebuild. I ended up ordering 3 sets of bearings and only one worked. I couldn't figure out the part number I needed so I called King Engine Bearings, the manufacturer of the most widely recommended bearing for our platform, but they made an error and gave me...

    Installing engine and transaxle

    I've done it both ways. I've had good luck doing trans separately. After putting the engine in, benching the trans up isn't extremely difficult. Just make sure you align that clutch well so you don't have to redo it after struggling to put the trans in for a while. Definitely not speaking from...

    Centre Gauge Pods

    Here's a write-up thread I dug up for you, it's called the ECS pod. I suppose that stands for Electronically Controlled Suspension, as Iceman said. It looks to be some sort of control/monitor unit. Pretty nifty. The only problem is availability. Definitely a hard to find piece...

    Blew a rocker

    You are genuinely evil. How dare you suggest I run a 2g head on my 1g? I have scoured the dsmtuners forum and now I am questioning many things. It seems the consensus of reputable people (notably Kiggly himself) that 2g heads are superior due to their higher casting quality and more...

    Blew a rocker

    Hey guys, I'm trying to get my galant on the road again (for the 3rd time) and besides my massive oil burning issue I found some damage in my head. It looks like I absolutely disintegrated a rocker and damaged my cam, retainer, and lifter. I believe the valve is fine but will inspect it when...

    exhaust manifold

    Are we talking about the classic FP cast manifold? If we are, I'm sorry but this just doesn't sound right to me. Many vehicles have proven to run extremely well with a big 16g and fp manifold. I have read on some forums that changing away from the FP manifold helps spool on LARGER turbos as it...

    fwd to rwd

    The lazy way to do it would weld some covers over the front axle outputs on the tranny, put some CV axle ends in the front hubs, and weld the center diff. Then you're RWD. But you're gonna break stuff. You could get a super-built tcase that'll hold the power but who knows how the rest of the...

    WTB Tail Lights

    @pot Got anything for him?

    Hello, hopefully looking for the whole assembly. Just the housing and the foglight switch would work, or just the foglight switch itself. Don't really need rheostat just housing, figured I'd buy it all as an assembly so I have a spare. Regardless, would love to get the housing and/or foglight switch

    First trans rebuild questions

    I have two broken GVR4 trans. One broke a while ago shifting hard into 3rd gear. Got stuck in 3rd gear. Newer trans broke after spinning all four wheels on an ice patch in 1st gear. I drove it to a parking spot after spinning it and a couple hours later when I tried to drive away it wouldn't...

    Stock leather seat height adjustment, how does it work?

    I'm pretty sure he meant the frontmost lever on the side. I have no idea how that lever works either.

    No crank/no start

    I'm not sure if you came to this conclusion already or not, mk2davis, but when you're replacing the starter you may as well follow their suggestions and rebuild / repair the small harness that goes with it.

    Well, I boogered up a 35 dollar seal

    I have no answers for your rear main problem or the pulley question, I did my seal with the engine out of the car and had no trouble, I don't remember having to risk tearing the seal. But, when I last removed my oil pan I bent it too. What I did was bend it back to shape the best I could and...

    Palm solutions

    I haven't an idea of what program you're talking about, but I assume you're somewhat computer-savvy if you're on Ubuntu. I have used Oracle Virtualbox (download is pretty far down the page) in the past. If you install Windows 98, XP, or 2000 onto a Virtual Machine using Virtualbox you can use...

    Scirocco radiator question

    I'm not an experienced GVR4 guy. I'm not even an experienced car guy for that matter. But everything i've read has made me never ever want to do the scirocco radiator mod. Engine bay space is nice and it looks nice but i've heard far too many problems caused by it than benefits. My two cents is...

    My battery was sitting at a like 45 degree angle resting against the radiator fan shroud cuz I didn't have a battery tray. So i made one out of 22 gauge steel, allthread, nuts, a grinder, and a drill. Not perfect looking but gets the job done. My battery is also oversize so its good to have a...

    TMZ Throttlebody Rebuild or S90

    I've read some mixed reviews on the S90 throttle body. My throttle body seals are all smoked and i'm pretty sure its the source of my idle issues. I wanna rebuild it with TMZ which is $140. I can get an S90 for only a little more on extremepsi. Should I go for the S90? Not only does it cost more...

    Can confirm: tyeler was right. I got some JIC lines made and that compressor shop fitting I mentioned earlier that was the correct thread and had the O-ring is actually AN so the JIC lines I had made just screwed right on. No leaks :DIn case anyone does this in the future: Get the rack side...

    Coolant issues

    Let us know how it goes after putting the new head on. I'm new to a lot of this so forgive me asking, but how will a new head help? Are you worried the head surface is messed up? How does that affect coolant flow if its not leaking?

    bent power steering hard lines

    Over a year update: Don't do push fit. They will pop off. It may be okay to run it on the return side but the feed side will pop. It lasted a while for me with the multiple tight hose clamps but over time it eventually blew and now it wont stay on. Try and do AN if you can, the difficulty though...

    constant clouds of white smoke out of exhaust

    i just dropped my broken head off at the machineshop and told the dude to fix it. on my receipt i paid for new intake valves and guides and "rebuild service". I then reinstalled it reusing everything including headgasket. Important note is that I had pulled pistons to replace the piston heads...

    constant clouds of white smoke out of exhaust

    Hey guys, just got the car running after skipping timing and destroying valves and guides for the second time. The car runs great but smokes like a motherf****r. It smokes instantly on startup and constantly the entire time the car's running. Always smoking like crazy. Not many miles on it but...
