Well the time has come to try and get the motor running. I understand this is a long shot since the motor has been siting for about 6 years. The motor had oil in it and when i removed the oil filler cap the internals looked good, no rusting, a little corosion however. So I pulled the plugs and pour a little bit of oil into each cyl. I went to get on the crank but it appears there is 3 or 4 allen cap screws that hold the pully to the crank and not one large bolt. I tried getting on one of the cap screws but not hard becuase I feared twisting it off. This has aftermarket air on the car so maybe the pully system is bolted on the front and I need to remove it before I get to the main crank bolt. Should I make a tool to bolt to the front after I remove the pully or... Any sugestions. Also is the correct ATF for the tranny Dextron III? Thanks
I appreciate it. I could use the starter if any of the electrical components worked [:0] This is my next step to work on. I did get the engine rotating, the reason to not use the starter is it might be to large of a jolt and possibly bust a ring, if there is rust in there it is possible to pour something inside to eat up the rust and atleast soffen it so it can be cleaned up without removing the head, rotating the engine slowly back and forth can sometimes break it free with little to no damage. The motor now rotates by hand. Once I get the electrical figured out hopefully I can see if it runs at all. Thanks for the input tho.
No problem, Dave, let us know how you get on with it. I started a M110 after a couple of years - just went for it using the starter - luckily it was fine, but a bust ring is major hassle, to say the least. Good luck. Jack
