GM 3.8L engine we are modifying for use in
the aircraft. After modification we will test it, then completely overhaul and install it in the DVII.
Engine with power steering pump and air conditioning compressor already removed. Note the change of belt (to a Gates belt part number K060512) and belt routing as well as tensioner pulley changed from smooth to ribbed (Napa part number 209751). This did reverse the rotation of the tensioner pulley, so we are considering a safety nut on the back of a longer tensioner pulley mounting bolt. (Update: No longer length left hand threaded bolt could be located locally or on the internet, so a second tensioner and bracket assmebly has been purchased to explore the possibility of drilling out the bolt hole oversize to allow a right hand threaded bolt and safetied nut to be installed, see page 3.)
Removal of EGR valve and installation of new block off plate.
