I am always up for getting together with other Fiero nuts. I am down in Cuba, about an hour and a half from STL. if you guys are ever up for driving some fun back roads, let me know and I can set up some very fun routes through the national forrest, it would make for a very fun day trip.

Reinke, that'd be cool. Would almost have to be a Sunday pm for me, though, or I'd hve to bring my truck. My kids won't fit in my Fiero.

Now for these guys who just tantalize us. If you're going to post teasers, you have to tell the whole story. We're all Fiero family.

Perhaps Fiero meetings won't produce those results. Better for everyone.

Are you referring to the one that was free here in the St. Louis area? I haven't found the post but I think the flywheel wasn't in the pic.

I have an old 88 Flywheel. I don't know if it could be made to work with an 86 engine.

Thanks but the 88's don't work, the older flywheels are externally balanced. Maybe I should switch to an 88 motor but if I go that far I would go to the 3800, not enough $$ for that right now. I am taking my fly to a machine shop tomorrow to see if they can work a miricale. I wonder if they could take out the old and add a new ring of material in there.

I was wondering where you'd gotten to, Virgin. Wouldn't it be easier to pull the cradle?

I take it your '87 still isn't running.

You can lower the rear of the cradle just enough to get it out without rotating the engine. It sucks, but it's doable.

3.4 DOHC swap is complete and running, now just have to finish the rest of the car...

I have replaced the tranny through the wheel well before without even rotating the cradle. Not an easy job. It is much easier for me at least to drop the cradle. You can do it and leave the AC connected to the car, just use some coat hanger wire to hang it so its not stressing the AC lines. I do remember it was a b!tch getting the splines to line up when putting the tranny back into the car when going in through the wheel well. It was a three man job.

When I did mine (many years ago), I put it in high gear and use an axle to turn it back and forth. A junk tripot from an old axle would have been easier.

Tshark. Describe your Fiero so I can recognize you up there. I'll be in a 86 SE solid red with GT wheels (one of the red Fieros. ha ha)

Lucky you. Still sans red Fiero.

Mine is a white '88 GT. Gold rims. You met me before at the planes on sticks, right?

No. No such luck. I was the second Fiero to arrive. Then there were 2 other red Fieros, then a blue one, then another white one, and the Indy.

Guys (and gals), we have a small challenge. If we can get together a large enough group of Fieros on a predictable, repeatable basis, some of the Fiero owners from other areas will come. I'm not talking about a handful or two, but a small parking lot worth.

Apparently, there was a club here that Fiero owners from other areas had at least some contact with. Oddly, there seem to be a lot of Fieros in the St. Louis area, but the owners don't seem to surface on here. All the email addresses I've tried for people in the old club are either no longer valid or don't seem to be monitored. Perhaps these people were run off this forum to Facebook or something.

I am in St Charles and am all about starting up another meeting of us. I just created a page on Face Book for Greater St Louis Fiero in hopes of finding other owners. Then when I went to Pontiac IL. for the car show Jeff linked this thread to me. I hope we can all start meeting up and doing group events there are still plenty of good weekends left this year.
