  1. I just did some on my 2008 Cobalt, the critical thing is the brand of the actual LED. I learned ZES is a good brand and actually bought Creo as well. The Creo were returned as they were not even as bright as the halogen. The ZES are unbelievable in brightness, the brand I went with was JDM ASTAR. I have no interference with the radio. I found this video on YouTube as a guide for selecting the right lights.Link to YouTube Scott
  2. On my 94 in the past I would pull the cooler line and run it in a bucket, start it and shut it off when it stopped flowing. This will get more out then the traditional method of just dropping the pan. Also I believe or least my 94 did it will have a drain plug on the torque converter.
  3. Be very careful with the block of wood, the cast pulley is pretty fragile. I broke one last time I did a seal on my 656, just was alittle off center with the block and crack. Next one I install I will only be pounding in the washer/nut area and use the nut to pull it on once far enough. Alittle heat is ok but usually they dont go on that hard anyway. Scott
  4. This is actually dads shop, it is a room that was added on the back of his main shop it is a engine building room and bathroom. It was built about 10 years ago. Anyway he used a product called Ucoat it, they make it where you can seal it and add flakes. He did not it is just sealed. It has held up well so far.

    715 value

    There also was a time not very long ago that you could have a good running engine for $500.
  6. Post up what project or project your working on this winter to pass the time? I'm building a 291 for my 656. This is no ordinary 291, its custom pistons and sleeves. It will be broke in on the dyno and tuned when the weather breaks in the spring. Hoping for 90+hp and 110+hp at torque rise. Also chasing a oil and water leak on my 244 although no big deal I use it for snow so it will be late winter. I really enjoy the time in the shop this time of year, it's a change of pace from summer. I work a day job so mostly it is weekends is my time in the shop. Let's see yours! Scott
  7. Troy. but my sand box where I play is in Armada...Haha. Yes I think I did see the store on line in Jackson, I thought that was the only one in Michigan. Scott
  8. Yes that is right, I follow Blains on FB but have yet to buy anything online from them. When I was in Iowa I spent hundreds on all types of stuff that got trucked back to Michigan week after week.
  9. We have TSC in Michigan its nothing to crow about I grab some hardware every once in a while. After working in Iowa and then later in Wisconsin and discovering Blain's Farm and fleet nothing compares.
  10. This past weekend in Michigan. The 656 is ready at my moms when it gets bad there.

    Cordless tools

    I have Kobalt and really like the 1/4", just is rough on 1/4" to 1/2" adapter bits. I was trying to upgrade my dad on Milwaukee for Christmas and found this set, in fact ordered 2...to good to be true as it always is. Link Scott
  12. Condolences and dont give up! To many will miss you. I will miss your pics you post on RP. Prayers sent! Scott
  13. Prayers sent from Michigan!
  14. I use Clevite 77 bearing assembly lube on my builds, its red and has lots of tack. Yup it's a flat taper so zinc is highly recommended 1000-1200ppm min. My build I'm breaking in on the dyno with Cenpeco super racing oil 10W30 then it will be 10w30 S3 Cenpeco there after. I tightened up the tolerances to go multiple grade. I also changed to a modern day automotive LS Chevy piston ring pack. Without a dyno I would do light to medium loading at various RPM in road gear. I would minimize under 1000rpm for less then a minute until after 1-2 hours (think cam/lifters oil splash). I would'nt heavy load until after atleast 3 hrs. Because of the oil pump gear attached, I bench prime when engine is upside down. With gear removed off oil pump I pour oil down pickup with a helper turning the pump through the distributor hole. When I see oil flowing out all the mains and rods after rotating the crankshaft in a few different positions. I then remove oil pump and reinstall gear, this is a bit messy. But I know she is primed.
