What are your questions?AggieTaco said:Had a couple of the same questions as another post, but I dont think many people venture into the engine tech
Check - I have the tensioner tool, as well as the FSMByrdDog20 said:Any body in the Houston area done it? Own the special tools? Interested in selling the tools?
You are fortunate to have an experienced group down there. Believe me, the SST is worth it vs. wrestling the AC off. As far as the crank pulley, a breaker bar wedged in and a quick bump of the starter will break it loose.ByrdDog20 said:Any body in the Houston area done it? Own the special tools?

I figure I can do it with the the Pulley SST and something to hold the crank pulley while I hang 235ft/lbs. on the pulley bolt.
I may be willing to buy the tools if I can get enough people wanting them that I could sell them and share the expense.
Shipping should be cheap enough I guess you don't have to be in Texas.
I Guess my reply must have been too vague. lol ;PByrdDog20 said:Anybody have an idea what the parts cost, belts, water pump, FIPG, etc ?

Murderman has fabbed up his own SST for the Crank pulley
I am only at 63K - So I will wait for 90K to do the works
As far as Houston goes-
Mike Burse Did his (T-Belt, water pump, belts etc.....)
Don has done his stuff
Carlos will be doing his stuff soon , as well as Tom- since they have recently past the 90K mark -

Will not hurt the engine but make sure that breaker bar is in a place that wont move. Just barely bumping the engine with the starter and something is coming loose(preferably the bolt) Just keep your hands out of the way.AggieTaco said:Just read chris' post about using the starter and a breaker bar, is that alright for the engine, cause that sounds like a better idea than pulling the radiator to try and stick an impact in there.
