Thanks again! At least he's got an option to dropping the tank if he wants to save time and labor! If it was my car I'd sure go for this method. Especially since I've gone through this on a '95, and it was not fun! I found out later about cutting a hole on the 4th gens, and that hurt even more!

ive owned 13 of these cars , and most of them ive had to replace the fuel pump either to it dieing or needing a bigger pump.i now prefer the acess door
my current car has 3 pumps in the tank( one on all the time 1 for when boost goes over 12 psi and the 3rd comes on when the nitrous is activated) , i can swap out the pumps in about 25 mins if i need to ,ive done it once already on the side of the highway.

makes life so much easier , and with the quality of the replacement pumps chances are u will prolly be going back into the tank again at some point

A non-contact "laser" thermometer (even the el-cheap-o from Horrible Fright) will tell the tale. Just take the temps of the individual exhaust headers

i already did that i know its not missing , was just curious as to if it sounds like it, to me it sounds just like it should being it has twin turbos , and the downpipes are only 3.5 ft long , with no mufflers

The little blue van does indeed appear to be Renault (good eye!)

A 1960 Renault Estafette Fourgon in fact

Fan Belt and fuel pump

I spent most of the day replacing a fan belt. The P/S pump came loose and the belt came off while I was on my way to the shop. The LT-1 has a Street and Performance pulley setup, so I called them to get a part number for the belt and what they gave me was wrong. trial and error resulted in a correct belt but the parts store was almost a mile away and I had to walk there -- twice. The fancy tension adjuster was corroded, so I had to disassemble and clean it to make it work. I had to disconnect a lot of stuff to replace the belt; it all goes back together tomorrow after lunch.



The rest of the day, I spent tracking down a correct re-build kit for a Carter fuel pump for a 54 Desoto Firedome that uses the rare caged valves. That should be here by the end of the week.

Actually the drivers door slides back into the body, not a suicide door in truth. I wasn't sure about it being a Renault as all the badging was removed as well as the grill, horn button and interior. Pretty much all there is left is the body.
