80 SC Reassemble Help

For a variety of reasons, my SC has been in my garage mostly disassembled for the last 5 years. I've spent the last few days getting things put back together. I'm using this forum, Wayne's book, & my Bentley manual to help figure it out. I've got most of the stuff back on the car, gas tank, oil tank/lines.

Now I'll be working on getting my engine reassembled & ready to put back in the car. I can fore see some problems, but hope they're not as bad as I make them out in my mind & try not to worry about them till they come up.

Two parts are of concern at this time. The first is my fan mounting strap. I wasn't careful when I removed it thinking I would replace it. Well, the days of milk & honey have dried up & I need to save as much money as possible. I'm not going to doll up my fan & housing at this point. Is my strap still usable?


Second item is my engine mounting plate. It is missing one of the tabs where the engine tray mounts. I can see the old spot welds where it was, but I can't seem to find the tab. I'm not sure it was even on there when I took it off. Is this something I should be concerned with or can I go ahead & paint it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Both parts are easy to repair. Make a new tab & weld it on the mounting saddle. Did the bolt pull thru on the fan strap?? I not clean it & paint it & install it.

Thanks, bolt didn't pull through, just kinked the band. Will clean paint & install. I really think the tab was missing already or else I would have it. I think I'll push ahead unless I run across it. After I mock it together, I may make a tab if I feel it will cause a rattle.

I have massaged my head studs with some PB Blaster & a newer exhaust nut. Only one was balky, spent about 10 minutes working the nut back & forth until I got it to go on smooth. John Walker replaced one of the studs that unscrewed for him when he installed my SSIs. He also made some spacers out of old exhaust nuts by drilling out the centers. If I coat the entire stud with antisieze, will it prohibit rust were the spacer is? Or should I just apply it to the top where the nut will go because it will burn off the rest? How do you guys determine the torque at such weird angles? The Bentley says 18# of Torque, I'm really nervous dealing with these studs.

Use a good antiseize like lubro moly LM508 & torque to 15-18 ft lbs& use new copper nuts & new barrel nuts & you won't have a problem.

Thanks Howard. I installed the oil cooler with new seals, oil line & adapter. I slathered the exhuast studs with antisieze & installed new copper nuts. A few of the studs I couldn't get the torque wrench on, but think I got within the 15-18 pounds with a box end.

I think I'm ready to flip the motor onto the SSIs & finish up. Anything I should check/do before I flip it?

I'm putting my interior together until my buddies help me turn over the engine & set it on the SSIs. I have deleted many things off the car. I can't recall this wire & am not sure what it connected to. Any help is appreciated. I can take a better pic if neccessary.



Sunroof switch maybe?

Hit a snag today. The meter gasket oring I ordered is way too big. The part # is 911-110-936-01. I'll call the dealer tomorrow.

I have to wait a week for the dealer to get the $12 o-ring. I got another one from a filter place, but it's a smidge too big & I don't feel comfortable using it. I believe this tiny strainer fell out of my cold start valve. Anyone seen one?


This fitting is very loose going into my throttle body, any suggestions on how best to seal it?


Again, any help is appreciated, God knows I need it!

The strainer basket looks like the one that goes in the delivery fitting @ the fuel dist,could also also be an outlet basket on top going to one of the injectors. I cant tell the size by looking at the photo. The 2nd fitting look like the 1 that goes in the back of the throttle housing & attaches to the brake booster hose for the suction jet.. The smooth end must be epoxyed back into the throttle housing or you will have a false air leak.

I have mock fitted my CIS on. I'm missing the throttle spring, no big. I'll need some more time to figure out the vacuum lines, the PO deleted the decel valve. This afternnon I'll pull everything back off & put gasket sealer on the intake gaskets & get them torqued down & start reassemble.

I figured out that PET is now available online, big help. I've been trying all morning to figure out where the last few pieces go, just a couple brackets, bonded rubber mounts, & a couple spacers. Any ideas?




Here's a few engine pics.

Straight mount with rubber mounts to # 6 intake runner & rubber mounts to air box. Curved mount rubber on the mounting tab below the cold start valve on the air box & 8mm hole on the othe end mounts to the throttle belcrank mount on the engine.

Thats is a doubler for the throttle return bracket. It mounts on the throttle housing toward the air cleaner & on the #1 cylinder side. It also attaches to the spring bracket. P.S. you need 2 throttle return springs. 1 up top on that bracket & one below between the belcrank & the boss on the bottom of # 2 cylinder intake runner. 2 different part #'s.

Wrong colours,Sorry. still the same wires. Turn the parking lights on & check for 12V's,thats you power & of course your 31 should bea ground to the chassis. Check continuity on that 2.

Yes the O-ring goes between the distributor & the body, I fear I may have ordered the wrong one. I'll order a new one along with whatever else I need in the morning. This last bracket is giving me fits. I appear to be missing both springs & the spring bracket.

I saw a picture with the TPS attached in the classifieds, I honestly don't remember pulling off the motor or seeing it floating around. Any chance it wasn't there to begin with? Hopefully I can get another from the classifieds.

All Cis car have that oring,if it missing you will introduce false air into the system.
