  1. no jumpers where on right just for some reason this car has never liked to be jumped sounds weird but ya. plus it was an 08 yukon denali so maybe to many apps. ill check the harness and see what i can find thanks for the help.
  2. ok put my new engine in ran for about a month battery died now when i jumped it heard a pop now no spark. i have replaced all fuses under the hood, checked all regular fuses inside driver side. replaced disturibtor, replaced plugs. not sure what else it could be
  3. nevermind i forgot about the ground dumb me. surprising how much you forget when you havent touched it in over a year
  4. i forget how the wires go on the starter. does the postive hook to the top or bottom? 4afe
  5. o ya its for a 1995 4afe
  6. need pictures of the fuel lines on the back of the engine. the metal line that comes out on the intake side. not sure where that hose leads to
  7. they should never break or loosen under normal use. as many know my car does not daily drive ever. track use only
  8. bad wheel bearings are easy to see and hear. be a loud popping sound usually during turning. jack up the car and shake the wheel should be loose if it is bad. i advise changing them if you have the replacements. common things i have seen with my car is the center hub nut the cotter pin breaks and the nut loosens up. another thing with replacement axles from autostores is that the nut that comes with it always seems to come loose no matter what. i always use the orignal nut. i have also upgraded to a stronger metal cotter pin. this has solved my bad wheel bearing problems. ps never really heard of someone replacing wheel bearings while the hubs were still on the car. be kinda curious to hear how its done cause i cant really think of a good way to do it and the fact that the hub comes off in a matter of minutes would just be easier to go have them pressed
  9. awesome. should be doing this in a month or so. so ill let ya know what i find. thanks for all the help
  10. thought id share a good how to guide to doing what i am going to do. for checking valve clearence What Tools Do I Need To Be Able To Do This? This is one of the rare instances that only simple tools are required. Some considerations are necessary that if you plan ahead of time your process will be easier. Read the list of tools, the engine parts needed and their descriptions below: Short block with at least one piston/rod assembly installed. It is required that on engines such as the big block Chevy that has different handed pistons that you do at least two cylinders so as to verify each design. The cylinder heads, with milling and valve job complete. All modifications need to be completed on the cylinder heads you plan on testing. You may use the head with light pressure testing springs, but chamber volume, surfacing, valve job, and lash settings, etc., must me complete or you will need to re-test. Cylinder head bolts or studs Whether you are using bolts or studs as your cylinder head fasteners, you will need to have some available. You may use used fasteners for this test. Head Gasket (preferably a used one for this test) A compressed gasket (used) will be more accurate than a new head gasket. Camshaft and specs for the cam you are using as well as what rocker arm ratio you intend to use. You must know what your cam lift values are going to be with this combo. If you plan on possibly using multiple cams through the season, it would be best to test each one. If you plan on running a high ratio rocker arm, you need to test with that rocker arm on the cylinder head. Razor Knife For cutting the modeling clay Modeling Clay You need to place modeling clay on the tops of the pistons. DO NOT use PlayDoh, it springs back after compression and will not be accurate. Modeling clay is available at most art stores and will be perfect for this exercise. Torque Wrench You need to torque the cylinder head to specified torque values. Crank Turning Socket or other turning device You will need to spin the engine and a crank turning socket is the easiest way to do this. Dial Caliper or other "accurate" measuring device After you have rotated the engine and removed the cylinder head ... you will cut the clay in various locations and then you will use the caliper to measure its thickness.

  11. ya prolly only be a few thousands of an inch. well two things im doing one its a head off another 4afe that has like 50K miles on it so i want it to be checked to make sure its flat and its gonna be used as a race engine so every little bit of performance i can get i want so if shaving the head can help me gain a horsepower or two might as well do it while im at it right. well ill do some checking then and see how close i can come without breaking the valves ha
  12. if you turn the fan on and you hear a thud thud thud sound turn the fan off ha. watch one of the mischief videos to hear a frog get caught in the air system
  13. i was wondering how much one could mill there head down before clearnce issues arise? this is for a 4AFE
