The hoist we used to take the motor out is no longer available. If nobody around here has one I'll be renting for the day....this gots to get DONE!!!

Did you know???

That the guy that invented the engine hoist, then invented the PUICK V-sicks?? Seems he wasn't selling enough hoists. :D

Given you are a PUICK person, maybe a trip to the local Northern Hyd store, for a hoist, would be a good investment.....You WILL need it again, Likely sooner, than later!! :sw: said so.

So Aaron - is it running yet?!? I gave the dealer the go-ahead to fix my GTP, so once I get it back and run it for a bit, it'll be time to get the supercharger a nose job.

BTW - the superchargers are known to rattle, a nylon coupler that connects the nose shaft to the rotors wears out and gets play in it. If you take the supercharger belt off, see if the pulley has any play when you turn it. If so just get one on ebay for $20. Mine actually has only a little bit of play, and it's been rattling for 2+ years now.
