Today I finally dialed my Quadrajet in how I want it and replaced my water pump. The gasket needed replacing so I figured I'd throw a new pump on there while I had it apart because my old one was a mystery.

My van is running great now and I couldn't be happier!

Installed new serpentine belt, thermostat, upper and lower radiator hoses, air filter. Next comes a new valve cover gasket drivers side if I can figure out how to get the cover off.

I just did mine, took off the spark plug wire holder bracket, had to completely unbolt the a/c compressor from its bracket and both rear braces and take off the serpentine belt to move the compressor out of the way enough to be able to pull the cover off.

I unbolted the fill tube then pulled up on it and the grommet broke in half so I had to pick out a piece that fell in and replace the grommet with one from Advance Auto. I used the felpro VS 50088 R valve cover gaskets. If you're only doing one side get VS 50293 R.

Wow Gladiator, I have great respect now for your mechanical ability after my attempt to access my valve cover. I took the oil fill tube bracket off fine, but the A/C wouldn't budge after removing a bracket and two bolts on the bottom. I put everything back and will take it Monday to my mechanic who is going to change both side VC gaskets. A bit over my head i guess.

Went to drive it. Dead battery, it's been about 4 or 5 days since I'd driven it. So I jumped it with my truck and went for a drive. That made me think that the time before that I went to drive it, it had been almost 3 weeks and the battery was dead then too. Haven't had this issue in a year and a half of owning it, so I'm thinking I have a drain someplace. ;-( Granted I should take the thing out more often. But a battery should not be so dead to not start a car after only 5 days.

Put a bead of silicone around the windshield gasket, a few other spots, hoping it fixes a leak. Ripped out the rest of the carpet, cleaned the floor a little.

Now we wait to see if the leak is gone.

Woot woot, I got my drop spindles in, finally!!! Along that changed my upper and lower arms ball joints and brake pads. My 15" winter wheels are bigger than summer 17s so besides 2in spindles drop I'll have an extra inch drop with summer wheels and I'll cut 1/4 turn of front springs to drop another inch. Rear will get a drop as well:)

If it's broken- I'll fix it! If it's not- I'll break it to figure it out how it works so I can fix it.
