depends on what went wrong, in my case I believe my unshaved snout was the problem that caused my 2.8 pulley to have interferrence issues and once that happened it locked up and MELTED the belt right off, just another Fiero smoking down the road. "This is not the Fiero fire you are looking for"

The brakes look great! Potholes suck in and around the whole metro area. Hit one hard enough to knock my stirring out so bad that when I turned into my driveway all I had to do was let go of the wheel and it turned in buy itself. Do you think you can make to the hotrod tour on the 8th?
Thanks about the brakes and you are right about them stupid potholes. Where's our tax dollars going anyways? As for June 8th the Hot Rod Power Tour, sadly no I have 4th of July party plannings and expences that will be putting the Fiero on back burner for a while. Not to mention another more powerful motor thats in the shop right now being built and this charging will not be used on that motor upgrading to a Gen V.
Glad you're back safe and sound. Did you bring back some hardware?
How was the awards banquet? I poked my head in long enough to see Mark get the hardship award, and the guy from Ontario get the distance award, and then I had to go. When I got back, everyone was gone, except Tom.
BTW, Tom gave me some great things to discuss with the guys to get our club going. I still think time/schedule is the limiting factor.
When you install it, make sure you uncheck the box for the free trial. While you run it, disable any current anti-virus software. When the scan completes, you will get a list of infections and their severity. You can look through the list, but I usually remove all.
Once Malwarebytes completes, you can also run Adwcleaner.
Made it out to the HotRod power tour and was totally impressed with the turn out of cars and people that showed up. Was looking for Fieros and didn't spot any. Mine got a lot of attention which was pretty cool.

Sorry I missed you. I seen quite a few blue canopies but didn't spot the Fiero. I didn't get there till 4:00 so it didn't leave a lot of time to check out the whole lot. Very nice turnout they had. I like your trailer.

That is Scott's Red 88GT and trailer. This is his first season with the trailer. Its a Snapperhead performance hitch and I think Scott fabbed up the trailer himself.
Way too many cars to see them all. You were probably parked in the race track, we walked thru there, but it was probably before you got there. A huge part of the fun of Power Tour is the drive between stops, going thru all the little towns. I highly encourage everyone to do at least a few stops next time it comes thru your area.

I guess it depends on who is coming, and the target attendees. That's a drive for you. About 1.25 hours for me, probably 1.5 for Lorne, probably 2 hours at least for notwohorns. Don't get me wrong. I like driving my Fiero, meeting Fiero people, and talking cars, but I look at it this way: say I have 6 hours. Subtract drive time. 3.5 hours max, but others may have less time.
The thing holding some of us is time. When we get time, we want to work on our car, house, or yard.
Hey guys ,,i know , its been a while,,,So,,,,Anybody have experience with doing cylinder head Gaskets. I have 40lbs compression on no.1 and will be my fall project , Was hoping some one could offer some incite if they have tackled this before

Cleaning them up is the hard part, so I just had a machine shop clean and check them.
I gave this more thought, getting the front manifold is a hard part also if you don't have the engine out. I started with mine in and then figured what the hell and pulled it. Then there is the cradle bolts, so I guess there are a couple of hard parts.

Ordered the parts today....Food for thought here Lorne,,,,If the dogbone were to be disconnected, do you think the motor could be pulled forward a little to help withe the ease of getting to the front exhaust manifold,,Im torn to even go this route as its the back head gasket that is the problem and i will be doing the engine swap next year,,,,i have always gone the route to just do both sides when doing head gaskets but damn it im getting old and to starting to hurt working on these little cars lmao
Your bottom mounts are not going to let it rotate. Maybe loosen all mounts and lift the engine a little but I can't say for sure that would help any. Maybe build a platform to lay on over the top of the engine bay so you could lay on your belly. I can imagine fighting rusted manifold bolts with the engine in going to be a cussing and a back breaking task.
Working on my rear coil overs, lower ball joint and changing bushings. Someone must have changed the rear control arm bushing not long ago but they were changed again by me anyway. Coil over tubes are just not fitting over the rear struts. I need a machinist to clean out some of the inner tube. Filled her up, along with another car and ice machine with refrigerant today. Got quite bit done today, first day that felt like real progress.
Not 100% sure I want leather seat but I have been look at some. Do any of you want my perfect seat covers? I figure somewhere around $250 OBO. I will probably throw in the seats as well but I have to admit my hog ring application was not the best.
They are Grey cloth original Fiero seat covers, the guy I bought them from said they are 20000 mile seat covers and I believe it.

Yes they are cloth, I edit original post about them, I should have been more clear. I also figured I would offer to the local guys before going global.
We are still painting and other stuff to the house but I am fine with a Sunday. I still have to put my coil overs on and get an alignment. I plan to have them on today but not sure I will. If anyone wants to stop by the shop today and I will post when or if I get there.
