    What tool did you use to remove the wiper arms before pulling the cowl? I removed mine using a battery terminal puller but it was not easy at all. I assume I need a different tool to make it easier next time.

    image.jpeg The pulley swap was easy for my buddy.i was his helper.i would say separating the stock pulley from the snout was the hardest.it takes some muscle to get that sucker off.you can see the piece of steel we used to put in between the pins.if I had time I would have made a jig to go over every pin so the load would be distributed over all pins instead of two pins ,maybe metco will make something in the future

    Please keep us updated,, maybe a step by step,,, had the wipers, cowl removal,, supercharger lid, how you got the pulley off, and if you had any pressure issues doing the T-stat,, maybe there is a trick to make the job easier.. And part number.. Either way, looking forward to seeing your results

    image.jpeg View attachment 33622 View attachment 33623 View attachment 33623 View attachment 33622 So we had one very strange issue .when we got the new pulley on we went to install the snout back to the super charger with the six long bolts and when we'd tighten them the pulley would bind and not spin !!WTF !!
    Well for some reason the bolt that you see in the middle of the 7 pins was loose!! And had spun out at least a 1/16 of a inch and was hitting the bolt on other part where it susspose to mate to.i do not know why that bolt was loose or if had been loose since I bought the car.we don't know .we did nothing to loosen that bolt.so anyways we removed the bolt and lock tighted it and we're back on are way

    Wipers and cowel come off very easy ,for the wipers just pop those plastic covers off with your finger nails ,used no tool then used a socket wrench to remove the wipers .theres two little white lines on your windshield to align then back up when you reinstall

    Any issues with the T-stat change, like air pocket in the system?

    I did the T stat about 2 months ago by myself,20 minute job .if I remember I just put a big ziplock bag under the housing to catch whatever coolant I could .loosend the two bolts pulled the hose outta the way .popped the t stat out noting the position of it and just put the new one in and retightened everything back up.put the coolant back in from the ziplock and added some water wetter to make up the difference from what I lost.very easy

    I thought I read that you had to vacuum seal the system so to not get air in it...so basically it's like changing it on an older v8
