    LQ1 Timing belt

    I don't want to burst your bubble but everytime I use that site, It's a no go. They tell me none are available when I call these contacts. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

    Likewise, GMPD are out but I found them here for about $73. http://oemcats.com/oem-parts/24503860.html. I think I`ll snag one even if to keep on the shelf for the future. The actuator and tensioner on the car are probably ok as is the belt really but it one of those things were I`m already there might as well do it.

    If you ever need PN's, don't hesitate to ask. I might not be able to find everything but will do my best.

    LQ1 Timing belt

    It's been awhile but here's my post about my 91 LQ1. Hopefully this helps.
  8. Well I got me a subframe from the JY. Was a bit of a bugger in the snow but it didn’t put up much of a fight. It’s in good shape. The old lateral links on the JY car were pretty trashed. I undid them at the knuckle and undid the trailing arms as well. Used my persuader to smash the knuckle away from the leaf. That was exciting when it let go. The lateral arms are about 1.5” different in length from the front vs the back. Just like has been said before.

    Finally back to it. Pulled it all apart, and had some difficulty when cranking the crankshaft when it got near 0. Squirted some lubricant into the spark plug holes. Figure I did let it sit for more years than I should have. That smoothed that out. Cranked the cams so that the flats are up top on each side and mounted the holder. About to go back out and figure out the belt tensioner, after I loosen the cam pulleys. Then put on the new belt Then figure I cycle it a few times by hand to seat the belt, and let everything come under tension.... the align the crankshaft mark and make sure the intermediate is on its mark too. The area I am not sure about is....Do I lock down the cams on the right, then crank a cycle and lock down the ones on the left... and they should be 180 ?

    1996 Wiper Firewall Connector?

    Does any one have pictures showing how to replace the wiper spray hose fitting in this picture? I removed the 2 sheet metal screws holding this thing to the firewall but could not take it apart.

    Yes the F-body rear window sweeps work but thats about the only seal we are able to replace. All other weather stripping and seals for convertibles are extremely rare NOS ones which are probably gone by now or find used ones in the JY/Ebay. No company in the world makes parts for these cars anymore, they aren't like the G-bodies from the 80`s with part catalogs and aftermarket support.
  12. Sup guys. Never got around to getting into any forums so I figured I’d give it a shot. Pictured is my 2003 Grand Prix GTP. I bought it from my buddy at the end of ‘20. Absolutely love this thing. I haven’t done too much to it; under the hood I installed a cold air intake. Other than that it’s just been specialty stuff like tint, audio, and lighting upgrades. I look forward to being part of the community and keeping you guys up to date on what goes on with the yak!
  13. I think the shock went out on me, there's alot of noise going on in there. I'll be looking to get most of the front end rebuilt this spring, I'll just add this to the list. My brother did a heck of a number on it on those North New Jersey roads for the 18 months and 10,000 he had it before turning it back over to me. I bought this car new in 1994 so I know what I can expect. True, it's only new once, but I have got to improve on it. Now. I'd really like to take this car to the 2022 Olds Nationals this July 6-9 as a visit to Nashville Motor Speedway for some laps on the track is in the offing. But, if I can't get it where I want it the white 1996 CS will get the nod.

  15. Huh. It’s a fair bit of dorking around to service the front strut assembly but not really all that hard. Did the shock shit the bed or are you having an issue with the bearing? You can take the shock right or of the top tower. To each his own though.

    Dual Beam (Hi/Lo) Retrofit?

    I got the bulbs and started messing with the housings. I hogged out the hole for the bulb as it was larger than the 9004 hole. I was going to try and figure something out to hold the bulb in, but I'll probably end up just using silicone. It's going to need a seal, anyway. Unless I can come up with something. The screw holes don't line up, only one of them, but there wasn't enough material to use the screw to hold it in. Should I paint the chrome part black since it has a projector? Here's where I'm at so far...

    Unfortunately, those rear seals are not made anymore. I've heard the 3rd gen Camaro's and Firebird's can be used with some modification and are still available. Some good junkyard units can still be had as well but they will be rare.
  18. I did it. I will never trust myself again on this job, LOL.
  19. Sorry to hear. It's been almost two years, how many miles did you drive before it had problems again? I'd be curious to hear what the shop had to do. Did the strut leak out or did one of the supporting pieces break? I've been way over 50,000miles on mine, they aren't as tight as they used to be but not needing replacement yet. I think I kept the special tools, my car just might live long enough to need a third (or fourth?) set on the front. My rear struts need replacement again, but I got over 100,000 miles on the second set so that seems about right.
  20. My 1994 Cutlass Supreme is getting a front end rebuild this spring, can anyone advise which is the better CV Axle to get, Cardone Remanufactured 601112 & 601264, or, Cardone New 661112 & 661264? I've given up looking for NOS, it just ain't gonna happen. I have the Moog complete front end kit purchased from Rock Auto as well as a Reman Delco rack & pinion. I'm going all out to be one and done with these new front end parts, if it all goes well I'm bringing this car to the 2022 Olds Nationals in Murfreesboro 7/6 - 7/9. If it's not done in time the white 1996 CS gets the nod. No trailering this year, I'm looking to save money on fuel costs by driving one of these two cars instead. thx

    Snow!!

    This was only after about 3-4 hours worth and we had almost 40 mph winds blowing snow everywhere. We usually get a few storms a year, but it has to come in from the certain direction. we had snow all day and some more light snow during the night. they pretreat the roads with brine and then sand and salt after the storm gets going.
  22. I either did a bad job, one of the struts I bought from rock auto were a dud, or both. The passengers side has since taken a dump on me. Off to the shop it goes come springtime. I will never attempt this job again.

    Snow!!

    Is that amount of snow the max for the year in NC? Do they salt the roads?
