    HR poly motor mounts

    yes, by turning the pins to the flats instead of the round, the motor will sit lower. with mine on the round (default setting) part, the motor did sit higher than the stock mounts but mine were trashed and broken so theres no telling if it sits higher than it did new from the factory. I have no...

    HR poly motor mounts

    My HR mounts came stock with the pins on the round part while sitting on the frame. I think the instructions say to leave it this way unless something doesn't fit, then turn the pins to the flat part, which lowers the motor.

    Lokar LS1 oil dipstick works

    I was removing the driver-side header and while I was unscrewing the nut that attaches the dipstick tube bracket to the header, it was seized/rusted on and broke off. I now needed a new dipstick tube. I did some research and supposedly the Lokar LS1 dipstick works for our cars. I bought the...

    radio/deck install not lining up to dash

    they do not as the original radio/deck only had 2 bolts holding it in which is what I was expecting for this new set-up as well. I bought the reproduction version of the brackets in the video so we'll see once they come in.

    radio/deck install not lining up to dash

    I've swapped them from left-to-right, top-to- bottom, and even tried installing with the "TOP" of the kit on the bottom and the most I could get lined up was still 1 hole. I saw an install video on YouTube and the factory brackets are different from mine which seems to be the problem? not...

    radio/deck install not lining up to dash

    Hello, Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong? I can't seem to get more than one bolt hole lined up to install my new radio/deck. I am using a American International CGM-123 Dash Kit and with the factory brackets bolted on, only one of the bolt holes seem to align with the dash. Is this the...

    Torque Spec for Stainless Fasteners

    ah that makes sense now i guess. since the hardware is stainless, they require some sort of compound on the threads thus changing the factory torque spec. since those are presumably dry.
