HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 10:56 pm by Admin

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

i'll call them on monday and see what they say. I'm still going to use eric's motor mounts, his new ones are designed so much better.

also does anyone else have a blank on their block(drivers side) where it looks like an oil pan bolt should be?

The sealing problem is common in that corner with the RH pans. My solution for it was to drill and tap a small hole in the block between the two ports, then put a small bolt through the pan there.

Their new pans supposedly fix the problem with a bridge there. Either way, it's going to be a pain to fix in the car...sorry to hear!

Yes, that is normal. Don't ask me why though.

Yah, off topic.

Actually, it's just probably for the horn ground.

That wire is the horn ground....

Well i heard back from RH.

They offered some tips, mainly to drill an extra hole for a bolt by the IO ports for extra support. They also said I could send in the pan and they would look at it. If it it was repairable they would do that, if not they would just send me a new one. Overall a much better experience than I was expecting.

so now my options are:

1) buy eric's pan, have him install it, hope that all is fixed

2)pull the pan myself, send it off to RH and wait

3)have eric pull the pan, send it off to RH(hope they dont look at the return address lol).

My other concern is that maybe the rear main seal is leaking instead of the pan. Are there any indicators of that versus the pan? I may throw in some flourescent dye in the oil and trace it from there.
