    Arrow '98 Trans Am Back Up After Broken Valve Spring!

    My buddy Steve and I have been working on my '98 Trans Am for 2-3 weeks now. We found the issue causing a bad running condition (Valve spring over the retainer!). We finally go the car up and running last night!

    Video is here:


    Some misc. cell photos over the past couple weeks:






    We tore apart the top end:


    After about 6 full days of work (Over 2-3 weeks) we finally got the car put back together:


    Need to get a coolant temp. sensor and coolant today. Have to idle it for a while, then take it for a drive. Wish it were sunny & dry today, but of course nature has provided rain.

    Heads, rockers, pushrods with 60k less miles, completely cleaned of carbon, all new gaskets. Those were my mods lol. I don't have cash to sink into this thing to mod it at the moment. Just bought a house. I'm 100% happy that the car is back on the road!
