I've been working on this probe ever since it blew up last year on Easter 2006. It progressed slowly due to a tight money situation. Finally I got enough money for a rebuild kit and a used motor from the junkyard. I got to work immediately at school in our shop, I currently attend a school called C-Tec and I'm in their Automotive program, and work went pretty smooth from there. Now it is just about ready to go back into the car, just after I receive the clutch I ordered. It should be running, hopefully, before I get out of school for the summer. Today I replaced the rear main seal, which turned out to be a huge pain. I eventually had to remove the oil pan, again, and the bevel thing that is above it, not sure what it's called, to remove the housing. That could of been avoided. Anyway, I got it replaced and had to create another gasket for the bevel thing and the oil pan, I had to use that Permatex stuff, Ultra Black. I nearly ran out and had to borrow some, o-well.


P.S. I will be getting pictures soon, my camera isn't here.
