I still have it. My install looks similar. The guy I hired to help me do this used a mallet to put the ps pump pulley back on. I think it shoved the shaft inside the pump, hence the 1/4 difference.

OMG! There is a special puller/pusher for GM power steering pump pulleys. You should be able to borrow one from your auto parts store. That pump is now junk!

I've put my TD5 X-member back and it looks fine... Lots of room below the trans and also for the exhaust shop to route the y pipe.

I was thinking of getting a d1/rrc v8 crossmember and seeing how that fits. Otherwise I'll make one.

Ok, I have a question again, this time regarding the emmissions stuff.

I have the 215-464 cannister from the spreadsheet and the vent valve (albeit the new superceeded one) Ac Delco 23481275



Am I correct in assuming the following.

The 3 ports on the top of the canister.

1 is for the corresponding plug on the valve which I have sat next to it in the picture - ***edit - believe it does go to the one on its own***
2. tank breather? ***edit just worked out I think the tank one is the larger one in the side with the pair of fittings - as it has a fuel pump logo next to it on the cannister***
3. Unsure? (the smaller one)

4. The rectangular one on the other line from the valve . I assume this has a corresponding connection that goes to the purge valve on the front of the engine?

Any clarification would be much appreciated. As this is being converted from a diesel I dont have any of this stuff to start from.

I may well have got this totally wrong!

thanks!

No worries. It has to pass engineering which basically means I need to run the full emissions setup from the age of the car the engine was removed from. I probably wont need to actually get it tested for emissions levels but they will check to see that everything is there.

And another issue now, the 2 connectors on my loom from Speartech do not fit the fuel tank pressure sensor or the vent valve from the spreadsheet.

the 2 pin connector appears to be the wrong way around (the retaining clip part), and the spacing on the 3 pins for the fuel tank pressure sensor is different to the connector.

Anyone know if the connectors to suit those are available from anywhere? I could maybe then swap them on the loom? assuming that would work...

I think the one for the fuel pressure sensor 13502903 may be AC Delco PT2425

and the one for the vent valve may be: ACDelco 19257603 GM Original Equipment Evaporative Emissions Canister Vent Valve Solenoid Jumper Wiring Harness

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks!

Thanks Nick, They appear to have pigtail versions aswell which may make my life even easier.

Do you have any comments regarding the emissions connections and which connection goes where from my post earlier with the picture?

Thanks
Pete

I went with the 2 Lokar parts pictured in the attachments. Top is the sensor kit for the 4L80E and the lower is the vertical indicator similar to what is in the video. I have a couple of to-dos before completing the install but I wanted to confirm clearance on the indicator arm for the cable operated sensor. Pics are attached. Plenty of room so I don't anticipate any issues. Will post an update once totally functional

I am experiencing this same issue, and I know that no one used a mallet on my PS pump. My belt appears to be moving aft about 2 grooves at the crankshaft. Nick are you saying that I should need to shim the PS pump, and consequently the alt and idler pulley forward. I appears from photos that others are not. Presumably these washers would fit between the engine side bracket and the PS pump and alternator? Please advise.

You must align the the power steering pulley with the crankshaft pulley.

I had to shim the entire assembly forward roughly 10mm to get the belt into alignment. Parts used:
  • 4 3/8 thick Bushings
  • 2 130mm M10 Bolts
  • 1 30mm M10 Bolt
  • 1 30mm M10 Button Head Bolt

Bolts were needed to replace bolts in kit to accommodate the additional width of the spacer. Pics attached. Test fire and belt seems to be where it needs to be. Actually probably about 1/8" over corrected but looks like it will work.

I am not sure why site keeps rotating my photos on upload.

Follow up on the transmission crossmember. I spoke to a local shop that has done a bunch of LS swaps and they said that they use some 3/16" plate and some 2 x 4 square steel to make a new crossmember. They said that if you don't put something there to keep the frame from separating, then as soon as you pull over a curb with one front tire, it will put an immense amount of stress on keeping the frame together. Hope this helps someone.

Wrong. No shimming is required. You installed it incorrectly!
