Wind it up, let her rip, blow out the carbon, usually helps, certainly is fun.

Something will probably break on the old girl. I just pamper her, I need to get another 100,000 miles out of her.

Got a little more done today. I got the pan back on and I am in the recommended Dreibond 1209 sealant procedure. Step 1: initial contact of gasket and sealant. Step 2: 1 hour later torque to 1/2 final torque value and Step 3: 6-24 hours later final torque. So I took the time to replace the intake CPS, mount oil level sensor and dipstick tube.

Tomorrow should be a lot busier. Final torque on the pan, install front diff, subframe, steering rack and power steering pump. (God knows I want to get that subframe back under there supporting the engine as it has been hanging by my Harbor Freight engine support bar for a week now)

Might get to axles too but slow and steady...

That all looks clean enough to eat off OB. I am envious.

You would have banned me from Xoutpost if you saw the mess I saw under there before starting this project.

Waiting days for the oil to stop dripping down on that front right seam afforded me the time to clean those surrounding areas. Not as clean as the top yet but getting there.

1970 Firebird Under restoration - now getting the super-duper extra stout serpentine belt conversion kit because....it's super-duper and extra stout.
Took your advice srmmmm and pulled the shaft (since the diff is not installed or connected) and added some more grease. Surprisingly there was no rust but really not a lot of grease in the splines. Added some extreme pressure red grease and happy to take your suggestion and spend 5 minutes for piece of mind.

You should be good to go now for a long time on that OB. I've got 240,000 miles on mine since it was replaced and repacked. Last inspection at 360,000 miles showed everything fine with plenty of grease still in there.


Sad the factory didn't do a better job of that originally.

Solid day today, I am beat. Everything back together and running with no leaks. I let it run in the air for about 15 minutes going over everything and double checking all my work. Tomorrow I will put the reinforcement plate and splash shield back on, set it down and torque the lower arms on each side and take it for a drive. Man, that right axle fought me for an hour but got it done. The tolerances for the axle to go through that bearing at the end of the axle carrier on the right side of the pan seemed really tight.

Anyway, nice to get her back on the road tomorrow.

Iím trying to figure out how to do this next thing, but after a lot of searching I came up blank and am not even sure if itís possible - is it possible to somehow code the front parking sensors to turn on automatically below some speed? Itís something that always throws me off whenever I sit in my X5, as Iím very used to it from my Mercedes. Not going to lie, I have bent my front license plate once or twice.

I haven't tried it but you could try setting the PDC ON at terminal 15 which I would guess PDC would be active with key on. Then the on/off speed selection would seem to come on below 20 and off again at over 20. I don't know but only a couple of clicks in BMW Scanner 1.4 to find out.
