    Monday i put fuel in the parts car and aired up the tires, but it wouldn't run. It would turn and sputter, then die. It "ran" for about 2 minutes while i held the throttle wide open, but it died when i tried to let it idle.

    Yesterday, i got the alternator out of the acadia and tried to get the passenger front wheel bearing out but it was stuck.

    Today, i went at it pretty hard with a 10 pound hammer. Got the new one in, i need to have that alternator checked before i order a new one so i don't buy unneeded parts. Plus i got the head for the sWagon back from the shop today. Had them plane the deck to ensure flatness and drilled a new hole for a second temp sensor.

    Worked on the parts car for a minute. It needs the tires filled up and some fresh gas and it should fire up.

    The Rosemount one sadly only had a single S series on Sunday, I should have called you when I was up at the East Bethel one. I had to pull a clutch pedal and master cylinder to prep things for my conversion.

    I was busy on sunday anyway. I do need to make another JY run soon though. More parts are needed.

    By the way, if anyone in the MN area wants an MP2 or to pull one and make some money there are a couple of them in the East Bethel U Pull R Parts. I would have grabbed one but i just didn't have the time.

    Hello Everyone....In the process of acquiring a Gen 1 SC2, and I am looking for some performance parts online and can't find a thing. Any sites you all recommend? I'm looking for intake and exhaust, specifically

    If it's all already out, just do it. You have it out of the car, you can clean it much better than you would have otherwise. Disassemble, Johnny 5.

If you think you could use it, just go ahead and do it, you'll be glad you did.
    The engine is out of the car and the head is off the block. I"m trying to avoid pulling the crank shaft and such.

    Is there anyway to check the piston rings while the pistons are still in the car?

    Finally got the Konigs on! Only a handful of things left before she's back in action at events again.
