PostSubject: tearing down and rebuild of a Opti   Mon Apr 13, 2009 1:27 pm

I have a few opti's laying around, and decided to build one good one for the SS.
I had already built my opti out of the parts that were the very best of what I had, so I rebuilt a second one for pics.

Starting with the main body, check deflection by grabbing the snout of the rotating assembly and wiggle. There should be very little side to side movement. Almost nothing. And make sure vent hole is clear.


Now turn over and place in soup bowl so your wife will yell at you when she goes to use it. Wink


Place opti eye back on base and bolt down. Make sure connector prongs are clean and not corroded


Install small spacer and opti wheel, making sure none of the 360 little holes have anything in them, and push disk down on dowl till it locks in place.


Now install the metal shield making sure the three little tabs hit the body of the opti.


Install white cap center section, making sure the two seals are firmly in their grooves.


Now install rotor using an t-9 socket.


Now install cap. Do not tighten it, as it will need to be off during installation on car, because you will need to turn the rotor by hand to align the dowel pin on the front of the cam with the correct hole on the back of the opti.


This is the correct hole for the dowel pin. It looks different than the other two because it is a more square hole and it has an additional mark that you will see.


While you are at it now is a good time to check the male end or opti end of the opti harness to make sure it is in good shape.


And a pic of my finished opti going into cheap SS.


Feel free to ask questions, or make suggestions. Very Happy
