So these go in like butter, except in my case I guess.
How did you guys with experience finesse the AC lines out of the way?
Pic make it tough to see, but the #2 runner needs to drop another inch or so to hit the port.
Right now as is, its sitting on the inboard AC line.
If I bend it down, which seems most logical based on the room I need, that'll screw me on the # 4 runner where the line has to come back up outta that location.
Any tips before I go break the line?
I know it bends somewhat easy, but I'm not sure what I'm shooting for.

You just need to be more gently forceful in your persuasion tactics. It will move to where it needs to go. And you do have to bend it a LOT more than you think you can!

You may need to get a long pry bar in there to convince it. But BE GENTLE!

Pain in the ass.
May have to fine tune it after theyre mounted when I have something more stable to pry on.
Wouldnt of been so bad if I didnt still have a girly right shoulder......ouch.

Thanks BTW, I knew what the answer was just looking for the "magic" tool that makes is eeeeeeeasy.

Glad you got it! Smile

Now... Make sure you split a length of heater hose and put it over the part of the line that is now rubbing or it will eventually wear through it. Ask me how I know... Rolling Eyes

You mean as it goes over the A arm?
I beat that up too.
Hopefully no rubbing.
Wont know til I drop the car back down.
Went to put my 96 up on a lift years back.
Had just pulled into the bay, 1st time I ever used this guy.
No sooner did he hit the hydraulics to lift the car & that line let go.
We looked at each other like WTF.

Yeah, apparently that portion of my thought didn't make it to my fingertips. Oops. Proofreading FTW! Surprised

Hey Crovo
How tight was that O2 sensor cable? Did you hack the shield or anything?

Anyone ever cut & extend the cable? or see any reason you cant?
Just planning ahead. Waiting for some insulation to come it.

I made a harness to extend the driver's side one, IIRC... I have a spare harness and used 02 if you want the weatherpacks for it.

That sounds much better then the Honda Mower Mod Wink

Next question...Who buys O2 sensors ?
Can an O2 only be confirmed ok w/ a scanner?
I know these are OEM w/ 189K on them so good sense says dump em.
I just dont know what affect old O2's really have is it mileage only (14 versus 16mpg?) or not so dramatic?
I also know they WILL come out easy cuz I have them in my hand for now.
Thoughts? Put em in & scan it after I'm up & running?

Put them in then scan. I think the car will throw a code if the O2's arent in unless you program them out. But I'll let the LT1 guys call me out on that if i'm wrong. Laughing
