Well, the A/C is fixed and now it keeps the belt on - The turbo oil restricter (homemade from a .023" MIG tip screwed into an AN fitting, then filed down) is installed and no more oil blowing from the turbo, although there is still some oil smoke in the exhaust that I hope will be gone after rings have worn in...Idle and free-rev tuning resumed, and I find that the smoother I get the idle, the quieter my Tilton clutch's rattle becomes. That noise level is very tolerable now - it had me concerned initially. My LS2 truck coils -on plugs- working well. Before I can even pull out of the garage it overheats and the radiator overflow tube starts gushing. Damn electric fan has failed and put a nice mark on my brand new Koyo radiator. I've ordered a new Flex-a-Lite dual fan - should be here this afternoon.
Very frustrating - I have limited time to work on this thing and keep having stupid things to fix.
Delayed gratification sucks.
