Asking for help via an online listing - how?
« Reply #45 on: February 21, 2010, 12:41:22 PM »

I sent a PM to the host of honor asking him to come in and look at the schedual, and to post a list of what needs to be done so we have the right tools.





 
I hate trying to bring the tool box to the job. . . .    I may as well put my garage on wheels.
 
Lea. . .You want me to send that dremel up now or wait until I see you.
 
Roger, I have your tail lights here. . .   I have to see if I can find the wheel covers between now and then.  The tail lights are gonna cost ya, but the wheel covers are cheap

No bugs here.. and don't bring any!! I hear a DDT bath like they do in Africa works pretty good... I gotta fairly complete shop, but bring your battery powered underwear, Dom's car storage is outdoors.

His mind doesn't function very well in the morning.  I may be crabby, but I'm usually in 2nd gear by the time the coffee is ready

Wow - lots of movement since I last checked here.  That'll teach me to have the marking period end this week.  :)

I can't thank you guys enough.  Polaraco asked for an inventory of my tools so here's the (pitifully small number of) tools I own:

3 ton Craftsman jack
2 jack stands (3 ton?)
creeper
Bostich portable air compressor (4 gal?) w/ one hose

Blue Point 1/2" air impact wrench (don't own socket set for this, yet)

Craftsman wrench set: 1 1/4" - very, very small ( ?/32")
ratchet set - 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" ratchets and 1/4" driver.  Metric and US sockets and several extenders.
Craftsman torque wrench (old-school design)
HD extension cord w/ 4-gang end
electric power drill w/ 3/8" chuck
rubber mallet
3 lb sledge
1 utility light
various channel-locks, screw drivers, needle-nose pliers, hose-clamp pliers, wire-brushes, etc.
1979 Chrysler FSM
1979 Chrysler Parts Catalog

That's about it.  Not the best, I know.....but other than the occasional gear-puller, I haven't had to rent anything from AutoZone.  So far......

So anything you guys want to bring from  folding work-tables to portable heaters to air-tools to to torches to batt powered hand tools would be welcome.

I'll post the jobs we have to do to the car, next.

Jobs - Here's what we're doing (actually it's best to show a picture.  It's worth a thousand words):



http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4011/4349927561_c3bb45dbe8.jpg



However, it's a slightly old pic as the timing chain cover is off, too:



http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2463/3986143916_455838eea3.jpg



So we basically have to put the engine's parts together:



New timing set

Remove/reinstall oil pan

New oil pan gasket

New oil filter

Reinstall timing set cover w/ new gaskets

New crank front oil seal

Reinstall crank balancer

New pulleys - crank, AC, water pump

New water pump and gasket

New fuel pump and gasket

New EGR and gasket

New vacuum hoses - all 'round

New plates to cover AIR pump holes in each exhaust manifold

Finish cleaning/re-installing rockers and rods

New valve-cover gaskets

Reinstall intake w/ new gaskets

Install all new air/water/oil sensors on intake

Install new Thermoquad and gaskets/seals

Reinstall all throttle lines and new hose lines to carb

New throttle kick-down bushing

New fuel line and filter

New fuel vapor canister filter material and vapor lines

Reinstall all electrical connections/wiring

New tranny coolant lines

New radiator install

New fan clutch

New belts

New thermostat

New coolant hoses

Clean up any grease/mess we can along the way.



I think that's it.  I took lots of pictures, made lots of labels and drew a few sketches so everything should go right back in place with no "extra" parts (I hope).

I currently have 95% of the disassembly work done
and 95% of the new parts on hand.  By the time you guys get here - I
should have everything....with the one possibility of maybe not having
dropped the oil pan.  I need to get someone to help me with that as it
looks like I need to remove some of the suspension first.  But Roger
gave me a guy to call - I think I'll call him about that.

Good  sounds like allot, but it's not.

I need to bring
Tubing bending tools
Cutters
flare tools
Assorted Sockets and hand tools
1/4" Air Ratchet
1/4" socket set
If I can get the engine hoist in the truck, that will work best
I have another portable air compressor.  I want to tie the two together.  I'll bring hoses.  We will need 1 1/4" pipe T and 3 close nipples to join the two compressors.  Figure out where we can run the second compressor.  We can't run both on the same circuit.




Not to worry, I have 300 feet of hose.
 
You need to have
*assorted 2 X 4 or 4 X4 pieces handy
*Make sure you have enough 5/16 line for the transmission lines.  Don't forget to get the couplers.  We'll need 2- double flare FEMALE 5/16 tubing nuts for the rad.  If not available, get 2 fitting for male 5/16 for the rad.  I think they are 1/8 male pipe by 5/16 double flare female.
*we'll need a 1/4 Pipe T and some close nipples to mate the two compressor together.
 
Here's the plan.
 
Lea and I will take the pan out first.  While you clean the pan up, we'll do the chain and the front of the motor.  When you are ready, we'll slip the pan back in.  While we do that, you can have all the rest of the parts ready.  If Roger is coming, he can hold the engine up for us.
