not to hijack but how did you do the springs and seals with the heads on? I was thinking ill have to TDC it and hook up shop air to the spark plug port but is there something else you all are doing?

What kind of spring compressor?

sorry fot the questions but I want to make sure I have what I need when I need it, when I do mine

We (Paul really but I was there) pressurized the cylinders like you were thinking... TDC then pressurize the cylinder. Otherwise you need to remove the heads.

I don't know exactly which brand but I can find out;

Getting closer...

Quote :
"Cam and roller timing set in, timing cover all back on, water pump installed, new cam and crank sensors installed, new front seal installed. In stalled oil pressure relief valve shim to increase oil pressure (should raise it about 10 PSI). Cleaned up valve covers. Lower SC idler bracket/pulley installed. Put a new pully on that one, since it was an old plastic one, and was ready to die. Kept the same size there (larger size) so it wouldn't throw off my belt calculations. Front lower poly engine mount is in. Should be ready to start on the top end stuff, which I hope to have all done by tomorrow p.m.. Start on getting the front end off tomorrow evening, and hopefully finish IC install saturday night."-Paul

Eric, did you just pull the balance shaft gear and left the shaft afloat?

Thanks for the link, Aaron.

I can't wait too see this all done!

Unfortunately I wasn't there for the cam install but it's my understanding is you have to dissemble the bottom end to pull the balance shaft gear. I did visit breifly today. Hood was cut for clearance, injectors were installed and look great (I had Paul anodize them black instead of the normal red he usually does). Mounts look good to. Dave at TripleEdgePerformance who did my transmission expressed his displeasure of the Riv's setup but putting frownely faces with a paint pen on the old mounts which I thought was funny. I did see the mockup with the IC and SC on. I have about 1/"4 clearance between the TB and the top hood skin. Very glad I put stiff mounts in to reduce movement. Paul is having some clearance issues with the 00+ Bonnie PS pump bracket we installed for electric WP clearanceand will swith back to stock. Alt bracket looks like it's going in the trash and wee are going with a '00 Bonnie alt bracket for more clearance on for the IC. Have to get a new alt too. More pix to come...

Today's updates
Quote :
Test fit the IC core with the alt in place this morning. I'm not gonna be able to use the nice AN fittings at least on the back connection. The hose comes out of the IC core straight into the front alternator mount. Have to get a molded rubber 90* bend, and then a hose coupler. Rear fuel rail cleared the alternator fine though, and the rails/injectors are installed-Paul.

Quote :
Test fit clearances with the SC on... Had to clearance the alternator (boss that the rear bracket used to go to hit the top of the SC end case) and the TB cable bracket and a part of the left side of the SC case were hitting the hood. Normally, I would have flipped the TB upside down, but, you cables arte too short to do that. Espceiclly the cruise control cable. Also test fit the coolant bottle I had for the radiator, and it just barly fits, and clears hood.-Paul

So... the biggest question about the IC - where did you put the heat exchanger?

Quote :
Engine is basically done. Got the bumper skin off tonight, and also the metal bumper, and hood latch/support. I need to do some further disassembly to get the cross bars out that are in front of the AC condensor. I just moved them up out of the way for now. Radiator overflow bottle is mounted, fits nicely. I'll have to pull it out to wire the other trigger wire for the water pump to the fan circuit.

I have the relay wired in for the electric water pump, but need to run a wire through the firewall, to the back seat area to tap into the fuel pump circuit to turn the water pump on... Not gonna be fun.

I was getting some squeaking from the accessory belt when I did a couple quick revs from the engine. I might try putting a larger pully on the accessory tensioner to try to tighten it up (I did this on my car. I also will spray the belt/pulleys with brake cleaner to clean any oil/coolant off them, and then spray a little belt dressing on.

There is much less wrap around the crank pully now with the electric water pump. Only about a 1/4 of the circumferance, instead of half the circumferance from the stock setup.

Very nice job with the fuel rails and hose replacements. Those guys at PRJ are top notch.

Paul's comment about less belt contact is a little concerning. Hope there is no slippage as a result. Otherwise, looking very good!

AA- I agree however I think I would have more of an issue if it was the SC belt. The acc belt only drives the PS pump and alt now that I have the electric wp so engine safety isn't too much of an issue. If the belt turned the wp and I saw slippage I would be very concerned about not getting enough cooling.

Leftovers...

IC Radiator installed...

Looks like it fits...

Bumper cover on. There is really alot more room than it looks like for air flow. I have less than 1/2" of radiator at the top that won't get airflow.

Top view...

Latch...

Final plumbing... You can see what was used as the new radiator catch can. It will be replaced with billet soon. The original radiator catch can is now the IC reservoir

I second what Corey said...

This is looking to be one of the best Rivieras... let's hope something stupid doesn't happen.
