    Another dumb bolt question . . .

    I am in the process of putting on my FAST 92/92. After 2 hours i have my old intake unbolted. The 4 of the 5 bolts in the back i have fuel line wrapped around so they don't fall. The 5th and final one i am having trouble with, the transmission dipstick runs right over top the bolt. While its movable i don't know to what extent, i am nervous about pushing it too far either way and busting it. Does anyone have a trick to get the bolt out or do i just push the tube out of the way.

    This project is turned out a lot harder then i thought. This is my 1st real mod done to my car(lid and catback), the back of my hands look i rubbed them against a cheese grater. The was blood spilled.

    Try using an open end wrench and unbolting it until you can slide the intake out with the bolt still in the intake. The dipstick should move enough for that.

    the bolt wont come out far enough with the tube in. i had to unbolt the tube from the motor and that gave me enough slack to move it out of the way. it made it so much easier.
