Only had 65K on the Odo when parted. I am trying to clean up around the yard before the igloo kits start arriving by the masses.






So if anyone can think of any parts that are still worth any thing please LMK. Or should I just send it all to scrap? I hate to scrap good parts that someone could use.

Any thoughts?

not worth much but if anyone still does 3.4 swaps there is a threaded piece on the 2.8 that the oil filter screws on that is needed for the 3.4. comes off with a hex. doesn't seem to be much demand for harmonic balancers, but you never know.

TY G-man! I will make sure to look at pulling those parts just in case. Like I said I just hate to throw out usable parts. Hell I'd rather give them away then toss them to scrap if they aren't worth anything.

Keep the tach filter and that goofy pipe that goes from the block by the oil filter up to the oil pressure sending unit.

I'd say the timing cover and balancer since they're Fiero specific. Also, assuming it's a pre-88, the flywheel since they're discontinued (I had to get one match balanced for my GT not too long ago).

Of course, the hoarder in me says to keep all of it.

Someone could probably find a use for that exhaust manifold also.

Will do ^^^ and TY everyone for chiming in. I will pull all these parts prior to scrapping this. I wish I knew how to quote multiple posters in one reply. I have much to learn!

The hoarder in me says the same thing Jimmy, hence why I have kept it all this time. The Missus says otherwise!

edit...dang typos

I'd save the cold start injector sensor too... not a big demand item, but I don't think they're made anymore and us guys in the cold climes will eventually start needing them.

When you get to the screen where you can type your repsponse, scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see another window where the whole thread can be seen. Use this window to find the quotes you want and just hi-lite them and paste them on your message. You will also have to add the "[QUOTE ] and [/QUOTE ]" at the beginning and end of the quote either by typing them in or hi-lighting the quote and clicking the silver "Quote" button just above the response window.

If you want it so that the person's name you're quoting also shows up in each quotation box, you can do it manually by typing all of the code etc to get the name in bold and the words "originally posted by XXX", or you can do it an easier way. After you've quoted the first person by using the quote button, just highlight and copy all the info that was automatically inserted by Cliff's program and paste a duplicate of it wherever you want to quote the second person in your own post. Then, just scroll up to the second guy's post and copy the parts you want and replace the name and the text portions into the name and text fields of the duplicate quote you created.

Back when I did my 4.9 swap ages ago, I just disassembled the duke and offered it all free....pay shipping only. The block was the only thing I wound up scrapping. It took a little time to ship it all out, but like you, I hated throwing out good stuff. Hopefully someone got some use out of some of it.

Awesome Blooz!! You and Steve my fellow Mainiac PFF'er have helped me to solve a great riddle that has plagued me since Feb. 2011. Lol, basically that is how long I been a PFF'er. Matter of fact, PFF was the first forum I had ever joined. And I been trying to figure this out since. Heck I was even thinking of posting a thread on the subject.

Blooz you are THE Man!!!! I'd throw you another few +'s if I could.

So I will keep all the parts and maybe a few more before scrap. TYVM everyone for chiming in and your time! I can feel the PFF love!!

Haha I guess you posted as I was typing Frizle.

I don't mind keeping any parts as long as I can store/move them easily. Heck I was even considering dragging the block down into my basement hideout room for a winter project. But then why would I spend all that time on a 2.8L? Why not find a BIGGER motor to geek out on all winter!?

I was considering tearing the motor down completely. Honestly only because I have never done so before and just kinda see what is what.

TY for chiming in Frizz!!
