The new look.

Naw it was pretty rusty. Had a few nonweep holes too. It took a couple hours needle gunning it out.
You can see on the drivers bottom corner that I had to use a bit of touch up paint.
 

For some reason my coil bracket hits the firewall. Dammit. Broke the coil connector in the process of welding up trans crossmember. Anyone else have this happen?


Need to get the right belts.


 
Did anyone have their coil bracket hit the firewall?

Yes, i found one of the back corners was leaving a kiss mark against the firewall after driving the car. I knocked the corner of the bracket flat and it got me enough room.

It wasn't too bad though. I'd imagine motor mount condition and how your trans member is built could impact the angle of your dangle

Are you standing on the outside of the construction zone? they kick you out of there already for starting trouble? "Dude, it is a protected rock not found anyplace else" :-P

The mounts are new. Diesel I want to say tho because they are pretty tall. I guess I can grind it flat. The connector is dangerously close tho too so that can break again I suppose.

Oh! You're using round body coils like me. You need to flip them. Will need longer standoffs and hardware, I noted the lengths somewhere in my thread. Roger sent them to me free of charge graciously. I think Yoshi resells these brackets now right? Is that not noted when ordering? That's frustrating
 
found the relevant stuff from my thread:

I bought a coil bracket from Roger Dee, using it with the d514a coils. The coil mounting tabs are offset, and the closer side measured out right for the spacers and bolts he provided. I bought it without thinking more about it, but when I tried to mount them it was pretty obvious it wouldn't work. With the coils mounted that way the connector is to the left, that's a no go with the firewall, not even close. Bracket is really nice though.

Roger Dee got me set up to mount the coils properly, after my issue with spacers and clearance in the last post. This is relevant to anyone trying to use Roger's ls2 coil bracket with d514a coils: you'll need spacers that are ~.850" and bolts that are around 1.75". This allowed me to flip the coils over, which puts the connectors towards the nose, so they actually fit in the car. Big thanks to Roger for sending the hardware gratis, even though it was my miss on things fitting. Forgot to take a pic on the engine but they look really slick.

difference in hardware from the "old style" (square body) ls2 to the d514.

Pretty obvious where you'd have a problem if you flipped them over with the connectors to the left.

I need to find the right standoffs then.



Also it's hard to see here and I took another photo with the belts on but photobuctet just seemed to crash. But the timing marks on the t belt cover interferes with the belts when the underdrive pulley on. Dammit. Have to clearance that too. :-(
 
I just rewired the harness and got spark on all cylinders can someone come over and crank the engine so I can check the timing?

Don't you have a wife for a reason?
Next time I'm around I'm game to turn a key while you struggle with MS
 
She’s at working teaching a yoga class. I asked the techie neighbor and he said he has a meeting. I corralled him into like 2 cranks it seems to be advanced like 25*

Little much for a coldstart don't you think?
When in doubt replace a human with anything cheaper
