When I did my '94 TBI I followed the Clymers manual. It calls for one full turn after the lash is gone. When I tried researching via google I think most places suggested 1/2 turn for a chevy small...

Where does the team ski at? It would be nice if you could convince the powers that be to keep a course in Juneau Pond all year for you guys (site of malibu open).

The guy was in the wrong in my opinion, especially considering that you are slalom skiers and were using a tournament boat. When we've put up a portable slalom course we have had all types come and...

I don't believe that you had an engine swap. The fuel in TBI engines is injected electronically, it just isn't multi-port fuel injection. Not sure what the horsepower is on the 97's but that is a...

I'm a little to far a way or I'd help. Think there would be any shot of moving the location? I've heard the water is always rough in that spot. What about the area on the other side of the road...

How long ago was that CruisinGA? Considering my '01 is now a pretty old car I'm guessing me spending $2200 and then selling wouldn't pay off vs. just selling as is.

I predict that someone buys...

Regarding reading the codes, check my post on the 96 TBI black smoke thread. Double check this, but since they are both GM engines I'm assuming the TBI and the LT1 engine have the same code system....

Glad you got it fixed. Did you have the ignition key turned to the right when you tried it?

On my '94 I don't have a check engine light but there is another method to see the flashing. You take...

helpful info. Wasn't sure if there are many guys out there that buy/sell fix or not, and if they tend to pay more or less than salvage places would. I think I'd feel pretty good if I got of 1K for...

Thanks for the help guys.

At one point the AC clutch fell off, and around that time is when I thought it seemed like it had too much friction. I thought it was probably from the bad A/C clutch...

Do you think it could be timing belt related? I did change it, but went until 120k miles.

The car is in a parking lot right now about an hour a way (Madison) so I can't take a look at it. I changed...

I've always thought mine might run a little rich so I may test mine too. Let me know how you end up going about testing if you do. Mine throws no codes but I do get a little soot buildup just below...

You bring up a good point. One of the big differences between slalom skiing and barefooting vs. wakeboarding is the amount of time in a set. That and the size of the wake the boat kicks out. I've...
