Ironically, the ad states that the engine is removed and the coolant crossover is removed also during the process. In the last picture, bottom right with the cylinders facing you..... isn't that the water pump pulley that mounted to the water pump IN the coolant crossover STILL mounted on the engine?!

Again....ENJOY

Some of his information in the ad sounds like it was taken from northstar performance website.

Not some, but all of the info is copied except the price, phone number and the addition at the end. I hope at least he is using Jake's studs.

Also engine repair using "studs" but without a picture of studs installed?

You'd think the guy would at least paraphrase rather than plagiarize it.

Looks like a PITA to work on even when out of the car. I replaced a leaking oil pressure sensor yesterday, you can bearly get your finger tips in there. Thank God no kids were around. I think I made up a few new words. But all is better today. Still love that car.

It isn't all that difficult to work on a Northstar engine when it's out of the car. And getting it out of the car isn't all that difficult either. It comes out nicely as a complete drivetrain package. It does take some time. Sometimes it takes a lot of time, like when every bolt is salt corroded in.
But working on aluminum, you need to take your time and be even more careful than with working on an iron engine. If you happen to shear a bolt off that was stuck, it requires a lot more care to remove it on an aluminum block than an iron block. The main thing is to have the proper tools and hopefully some experience with engines before tackeling anything big. Still, it does take time. You need to be very careful, because the least mistake can cost a lot of money to hide.

Yeah that info is off my site and I've told Dale before not to "copy and paste" off my website, that is very misleading.

Time to call Dale again.

I'm getting tired of these arguments. Both sides stated. Take it private.

Listen fellas, if you have to use "attorney" and "patent" in the same sentence, then don't post it here. This forum will not host legal battles. Take it to a court. End of story.
