Thanks for putting this great post together - my local dealership wanted $185 for the part, I pulled it off and for $8 ( flush grease fittings from Grainger ) i'm done. I'll install when I get home from work today and ops check.

Could you post pics and/a more detailed description? Are you saying you added some sort of grease fitting to the OPDA?

I think he added a zerk fitting. A flush style like I used for mine. If you already have the tools, that's really the only "odd" part. You can use a screw for the grub and if you're not concerned with grease type (something I advise against) you can add Napa grease easily enough. Depending on budget and skill level it's relatively easy. Unless you go the Bigbob route and re-engineer the entire system!

Most people don't have the skill or tools or confidence. The thread can help to a point, but I can relate to those who see the engine and step back saying no way. I was like that and fortunate enough to stumble into a job where I could screw up a lot of stuff learning.

Man, I cannot thank you enough for this and everyone else who has saved me on this issue! Don't know what I would have done without this thread.

One quick question- sorry for my lameness... since I have an automatic, do I still put it in neutral and how much harder harder might it be to crank it?

Nice job on the video Bob.

You mentioned when re-installing, to line the holes up in the center of the slack. I don't know if it makes any difference (as long as it's not throwing codes), but my thinking is, when the engine is running, the wheel will be on the counter-clockwise-most (new word) position of the slack. So, I've always tried to line up the holes with the wheel rotated all the way counter-clockwise when re-installing. As long as the engine is at TDC, we're not talking but a hair's breadth between your way and mine so either should work fine. Just thought I'd mention how I do it and again, nice video.

Just leave it in park, neutral is only mandatory for manual transmissions.

I doubt you could tell the difference between an auto and a manual in terms of effort to turn the engine over with a wrench, if that's what your asking.

Yeah, it's pretty much splitting hairs. But you are right, the wheel will be at the furthest CCW (CCWM) position.

I think someone said Tee-Shirts will be made up after post 3,000.

The Laughing Monkey shirt will be popular.

Hey, somebody click on my YouTube link please and let me know if it has sound. For some reason I have no sound on it for one reason or the other. Not even a sound volume icon deal. I do with other videos, but not with this one or any of my other You Tube videos.
