But you didn't fix the radio
I'm pretty sure that the vibration I'm feeling in the car is due to the CPS touching the front suspension. Or possibly the shorter motor mounts are affecting the drive line at the u-joints.So was the vibration of the alternator the overall vibration problem?
Yup! Belts are supposed to be tightened again after about 50 miles.Because the belt will wear and stretch.
The crossbar will not drop after inserting sway bar brackets. Crossbar is actually recessed for the thickness of the sway bar brackets. This is the reason that it is recommended shims to be installed when the sway bar is not present. You may make custom shims to drop the crossbar but they should be at least 1/2" thick to get may be 1/4" clearance and that would change drive train angles.After my Opel Work Nap, I realized where some of my previous cowling/manifold gap went: I forgot to install my OGTS sway bar brackets between the frame and the engine crossmember. This will push the crossmember and engine down 1/8"-3/16". That will be more than enough peace of mind clearance at the manifold/cowling gap.
That’s so great to hear!! Congratulations! What makes you deem this the best set-up ever? Smoothness? Power? Reliability?YAHOO! YIPPEE! My engine swap and fuel injection is PERFECT! I fixed my vibration problem due to the too short motor mounts I was using and went for a nice long drive on highways and all sorts of things and the engine worked perfectly! I've driven GT's for 40 years and have tried all the carburetors, and now FI, and this is the best running engine set up I've ever had. I'm going to pronounce my engine swap and Fi install MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!! Wheeeeeeeeee!
It's the smoothness and, more importantly, the consistency of the way the engine runs. Always the same, no strange sounds cropping up from time to time that make me think I'll get stuck on the side of the road.That’s so great to hear!! Congratulations!
