So I dawned on me, where the hell do I put the water pump coolant line!?
It never really occurred to me that there was just a hole in my block, online manuals and pictures didn't tell me @!#$. So out to look at my old 94 engine that was covered in 6 inches of snow!
Saw there was a steel tube sticking out...oh great... looked closer and it was a PRESS FIT....OH GREAT. Ive been down that road before....
So I went back in, had 5% hope I could actually get it out, grabbed a screw driver, hammer, boiled a pot of hot water on the stove and went back out in the 5 degree temp, brushed the snow off, poured the boiling water on the block casting and hit it with a screwdriver and hammer and ill be damned if I got it off. Barely even dinged up the edge too!
So I cleaned it real good, got some Loctite sleeve retainer and smacked her in the turbo block.
Previous owner had all kinds of bull@!#$ oil fittings in the oil ports
Went to mount turbo, found out the manifold shrank big time, bolt holes wouldn't line up anymore. oh great again..
So started to open the holes up
Upon doing that, I noticed the casting and took a double look and realized it was quit possibly a crack!
Sure enough it was!
Sooooo, back on the internet, ordered yet another several hundred dollars of parts including a manifold. Just the weekly routine. Bunch of parts should be arriving this week actually.
Speaking of exhaust, got this bad boy, think it was $250 bucks alone, exhaust cutout
Got the turbo oil feed line plumbed in, also the coolant tube
Would someone like to tell me what the heck they use tube and hose wise for the water outlet sticking out the back! I cant find ANY pictures or documents showing me! I know a 4 inch or so piece of rubber hose connects it to another steel tube I presume???
Here is what my 94 used:
Def not what the used on the turbo engines... I can no brainer think of something to make it work from there to the heater core, but if I can get some oem parts that would be nice for future repairs...
Oil sending unit for aftermarket gauges
Using 94 ac setup, had to remove some casting for the turbo brace to fit on
I was pissed because that front mount is missing ONE damn hole for the belt tensioner lol. Otherwise its the same bracket, so I cleaned and painted that one for nothing, I took it off, redid the newer one, and am waiting for the paint to dry, but here it is with the old one on
Throttle body comparison:
obviously not going to use the coolant ports, and im also going to have to swap the IAC and TPS connectors when it comes time to do my harness whenever my literature gets here for pinouts on the bulkhead connectors.
Both of these are ridiculously small, but wow, that turbo TB is worthless.
