Default GM LSX Tall Valve Covers (( 09-23-23 ))

Good news the second set of Valve Covers arrived.



These are so much nicer then the last set.



Coils coming off again.





Now this is how a valve cover should look.



Need to fix a loose blind nut.



I moved over the coil mounts from the Carbon Valve Covers.



Torque to proper spec.








Drivers Side



Since I didn't show this on the Passenger Side I did put a little bit of oil on the hardware.





Sucks to have to cover up the LSX logo





Ugh, I missed a loose blind nut.



Need to redo this line.







Good News they don't leak.

Default Optima Battery has been discharged and recharged (( 09-24-23 ))

So the optima battery is back and it is fully charged. I dropped it off at my buddy's shop so he could use the big Optima
charger so it could be reconditioned and charged back up.





I am getting tired of taking this battery in and out.

However, I am getting really good at it.

Default Dr EFI Andrew is in the house ''Virtually'' (( 09-29-23 ))

Well, Andrew is back in the house and it's a Friday.





Andrew was kind enough to log back into my car and tweak the tune just a little bit. He confirmed my PWM fan connection
to the Holley worked and we figured out that my thermostat wasn't opening.



We also assumed that there was still air in the cool heads and he sent me out to get the Funnel fill set up.

Default Swapping the Thermostat (( 09-30-23 ))

Back in the garage and plan to change out the thermostat.



please don't tell my wife.



Here we go again.



So, as I was taking the Thermostat housing out one of the bolts fell directly behind the battery against the core support.



Thank god the bolt was steel and I was able to fish it out from behind the battery with a magnet.



Housing is back on and I hope this works.



While I was there I finally put the cover on the positive terminal.



Back together again.



Off to the grocery store to get more distilled water.



I also picked up some Windmill Cookie's



Picked up the Funnel Fill kit.

50 Dollars at Advanced Autoparts and the China Knock off is $20.00 on Amazon.



I can't believe how well this works.





Clock works



Calling it a night and heading to the trail to get a ride in.

I forget where I saw the funnel being used for the first time, but after I tried it, I was sold.

This quote is so true

The last 10% is 90% of the work.

and tonight I am removing the starter trying to figure out where the leak is coming from.

Possible the crank position sensor.
