Home made special tool to install a new F-Body pulley to replace the Corvette style pulley that came with the engine.



Torque angle guage for the final tightening on the new bolt.

This little puzzle piece also arrived, M16 Male Metric Straight Thread x M18 Female Metric Straight Thread Adapter. This lets me run the stock 944 oil pressure guage off the opening behind the LS intake on the top rear part of the block.

Installed the swap oil pan and pickup last night.

Shot of the inside of the swap pan, each corner of the sump has a trap door:



This is the pan the engine came with:



Ready for install:



Pickup tube installed:



Swap pan installed (dry except for RTV on the seams of the block where the covers meet the corners):

Put the LS on some storage legs so I can work on the back of the engine. Pulled the old rear main seal and installed a new one, used a couple "special tools" for the job. Next job will be installing the adapter and pilot bearing that fit in the back of the crank.

Installed the pilot bearing adapter and pilot bearing this evening. Used a little Loctite 609 to hold things in place.

It's the only tool in my box that's made in Alberta, and it's very well made. I went through a run of crappy cheap dead blows that split and finally got fed up.

I own 3 of them and a snap on .... I don't use the snap on anymore.

I found some at GD liquidators, they may still have some more.

Chrenan, have you decided on your solution for braking yet? Seems like one of the hydroboost setups would be suitable, assuming you're keeping the power steering.
