Look out Mr. Statesman, the LTD is on the prowl.....
This is the installation of my new underdrive pullies...
car is raised so i can remove the crank pully.
this was the hard bit. some of you may remember me mentioning i had trouble with this when i was putting my ported heads on. well, it beat me then and i left the bastard on. But this time it had to come off. after trying many different "techniques", we came upon the winner. we used a chain style filter remover around the pully, a large spanner and a fair bit of brute force.
Removing teh alternator pully using a rattle gun.
all the pullies removed.
crank pully installed with the supplied new stainless bolts.
waterpump pully installed with old bolts, i plan to replace these asap.
alternator pully installed.
belt installed. after that is was just a matter of re-installing the fan and its shroud (with a anti-sieze on it this time).
I was sceptical of the hp increase, but im now converted. they have made a difference on the seat of the pants meter.
A big thanks to shane (MrLandau) for the use of his driveway, tools and brute force!
