I may be making a mistake with the white covers, but the car is black & I'm color blind anyway so black & white looks great to me. HA HA

Sure. Once the circlip is out of the back plate and the plate is out you can put in the o ring and re assemble. should be a piece of cake. Dont lose any of the pump vanes when doing so. If they fall out make sure to get them back in the way they came out as they "wear in" . you will see. just look at the wear pattern on them if some fall out. should be pretty obvious.Good luck.

man, I love my crossfire. When I was a young man, I was told many times to stay away from the crossfire injection. As I got older, I realized that the "rumors" where pure B/S. Sure the crossfire isnt super fast, but its reliable. My crossfire runs great, because I have a newer goodwrech motor with my orginal crossfire injection on top of it. Runs like a dream.

When I bought the damn car, I already had one. I love the C4 so much, I had to buy another. From day 1, as soon as i got my hands on her, she was leaking power steering fluid, transmission fluid, water pump looked like it was leaking, the damn oil pan, not the rear main seal was leaking, and the master cylinder was leaking slowly.

So I drove the car all last summer that way, until fluid was flying from the engine bay under neith the car, all the way to the back bumper. (seriously)

So what i did was, pulled the transmission, put new seals in it. Put a fresh pan gasket on it. I also Bought all new power steering hoses (3) of them, then I pulled the oil pan, water pump and threw my factory magnesium valve pans in the trash.

I also threw the factory (headers) manifods in the trash, then bought new headers.

then i painted the engine black and it looks very nice.

I also painted the engine bay and under coated the whole underneith the car.

plus i put a new fuel pump in it and a nice clean, 70 dollar alternotor from napa.

i also borrowed my 87 corvettes digital dash and stuck it in my 84. When I drive my 87, i stick it back in......Its only like 8 screw drivers (screws) holding it in, plus a plug or two.

So I take my digital dash, from car to car. BUT IT WORKS

I also bought a wood grain kit and now the car is wood and leather.......

I used to be scared of Efi. Then when I got a good running t.b.i. I was able to understand how it works. The crossfire dosent have that many sensors,
just tps, knock sensor, ecm temp, o2 sensor, map, plus maybe 1 or 2 more.

After sitting around and reading as much info as I could on chevy t.b.i. I started to understand it.

I belive for a "carb mechanic" the crossfire injection was a good place to start learning how fuel injection on chevys works.

Wood & Leather, great looking I suspect. Sounds like the previous owner just drove the snot out of it then sold it, but after cleaning it, it'll be nice & shiny. Oh! I see you undercoated it.
The crossfire. The people on the different corvette forms seam to like them. I watched an episode of two guys garage awhile back & they had nothing good to say about the system. something about warping can't remember what else, & they changed it to a manifold & carb set up.
I tried using my car for an aviator but it's so small I couldn't recognize it as a vett, I'm trying to do that resizing thing, I'll get it one of these times.
That cleaning & painting really made a big difference, it looks great. I thought the car was white until I read Silverback's reply asking what color it is. And I saw a comment about the cease fire from DV he's quite knowledgeable, I suspect he had one that didn't work well. Well we can chat more later, I can't keep my eyes open any longer. Thanks, I enjoyed talking with you.
Take care & keep safe,
Rich
