    I tried many junkyards and none had a good glass- or they were the same cost as new glass.

    I found a local place that sold me a new Chinese glass with the trim for $160. Removing the old window...

    I can tell you with 100% certainty that if you use large spline S-Series halfshaft (93&up) that they will fit right into the 4 bolt Ion hub. That's what I use.

    I have not looked at the backs...

    Went with 4 lug hubs that way I could use the same wheels and halfshafts. Having same bolt pattern on front and back makes it easier for tire management during races.

    Standard Saturn fare - NA 1.9 DOHC with the 5 speed with factory header, custom 1 3/4 downpipe, CAI, stock cams.

    Thanks. I was copying a design another team had done. My objective was to replace the bearing and hub assembly so no need to put ball joint elsewhere.

    It is a good thought I had not considered....

    I can tell you that using the Ion knuckle did produce a lot of extra clearance between the wheel and the strut, allowing a bunch of negative camber. On my SC I redrilled the holes at the top of the...

    So I'm a little late to the party here.

    1. if using used hub, measure the machine surface where the bearing sits. My experience with these is that the metal is soft enough that if the car...

    92 sc na

    A few weeks back the race car went online with MS2. I only have 1 month experience with MegaSquirt so this is probably a bit rough around the edges, but the car starts and runs relatively decent,...

    The larger spline S-series halfshaft (94 and up I believe) is a direct fit for The Ion/Cobalt, as well as Cavaliers.

    Cobalt had a 4 and 5 bolt pattern depending on which model, but if you stick...

    No pics handy. Cut the lower control arm at the narrow between the ball joint and the hole for the sway bar, then machine a little on the bottom to get it flat and weld on a plate with the 3-hole...

    OK I know it's 18 months later and probably too late.

    I know of a 96 SL2 running Cobalt knuckle, bearing, brake and rotor combination. They cut the ball joint end off the control arm and welded...

    Welcome. Those panels look OK to me for a 20 year old car. It's all straight with no major cracks. If you are serious about working on it yourself getting a factory service manual will be a big...

    So I tore it down, replaced a bunch of slightly bent valves, installed new Sealed Power pistons, milled the head flat, chose a different head gasket and now it is back together and through a tank of...

    I cracked one overtorquing it. The bolts that hold the plate to the block have a different spec which I incorrectly assumed was for the nuts also.

    Yes 91-93 came with the flat faced valves. I ordered one Melling V5521 and it showed up today. There is a tiny indent in the center - much smaller than every pic I had seen. Maybe 1/8". These...

    flat faced valves

    Looking for some flat faced valves.

    I see Melling exhaust valve p/n V5521 and Sealed Power p/n V-4508 both appear not flat on the bottom.

    Problem is the catalog shows the same valve for a...

    The SET39 is off a 94 Tempo IIRC and it has a torque spec of 190 ft/lb so that is what I use. I reuse the nut. So far I have not had any problem with it backing off the nut.

    I'm thinking if the bearings show no free play and no grease leaking at the seals you should be good for 20 minutes. Knuckles are cheap at the junkyard so might be a good idea to get a spare and...

    Updates:
    1) Looking at the 91-92 halfshaft(small spline) vs 93-up (large spline) I notice the large spline has a shoulder for the hub to rest on. This MAY solve my problem. I switched the RF to...
