Took my intake manifold off today to install my maggie.

This explains the missing corn we keep in the garage for feeding ducks in the winter. Dang little chipmunks!

Instead of storing your corn between Nylon-66 and aluminum, go with galvanized steel rings bolted together.



Good thing the moisture content was low or we could get the salt and butter out... :cowboy:

Youre not going to tape those bad boys up?! If you need any help let me know, ive installed/uninstalled many times! Just wish i was closer..Now that i found out the only thing wrong with my maggie was the $5.99 idler pulley im tempted to pop her back on!

Whatever you do go light on the locktite and don't over tighten the valley cover bolts. I had to drill out 7 or 8 of the lil bastards!

Hadn't had a chance to tape the ports up yet when I took that pic. Heck, I hand plucked up every darn one of those pieces of corn, cleaned the head surfaces around the ports, vacuumed the remaining stuff (dirt!), then carefully taped them closed so I wouldn't drop something down there. When I put the new valley cover on, I torqued them to exactly what was called out in the instructions, 18 ft-lbs. :thumbsup:

Don't have the right tensioner pulley piece, so I gotta call Magnuson tomorrow and see if they can do a two-day shipment. I should finish up on Wednesday! Whoo Hoo !!!

Jimmy, you gonna fly back here for the Cruise?

Hey, heavy, thanks for that tip. I was lookin' in the front and couldn't see it at first. Thanks! Great idea!

I'm surprised they didn't chew any of the plastic or wires, or did they?:stirpot:
We'll know soon when I try to fire 'er up in a few days.

Darn little buggers! Saw one darting around in the garage just yesterday ... went under my V (!) ... it's sitting on jackstands, waiting for a Magnuson part. I'm setting some rat traps this afternoon!!! :rant2:

Peanut butter works as bait, or just poison the things..

Good luck with the blower, and let us know how your MPC (miles per chipmunk) compares with stock...
