I am grappling with the Biscayne this weekend. I totally understand how Cap't Ahab felt in his pursuit.
Changing the opti-spark, plugs and wires.
Because it's a swap motor, just about nothing can be ordered stock.
I am so very happy I recorded all the vital information!
The pain I am feeling today, however, is the same pain any 94-96 B-Body owner feels.
The #7 and #8 plugs can't be got at from the top. It's just plain easier to jack up the front and attack them through the wheel wells with about 4' of extensions on your socket wrench. #6 is blocked by the AC lines and will often be broken while getting the socket on it to remove it and you've got to be super careful when getting the socket off after you have the new one on.
Yesterday was tear-down. I also got the replacement opti on and the passenger side plugs swapped. Today was a lighter day and all that is done is the driver's side plugs.
Wires are tomorrow along with reassembly.
Have I mentioned how much I loathe the optispark distributor?
