@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:41 AM) Really need to sorth through the random junk inside from where the wife and I moved so I can get back to stripping down.
@  KennyL : (16 April 2014 - 10:40 AM) With all the funky rain and snow, my Stratus has sunken somewhat into mud. I might need assistance moving it from its current location, heh. Dad can tug me out, I'm sure. Need to get it fired and roll it a bit again, been a while.
@  KennyL : (15 April 2014 - 04:01 AM) Fresh oil and filter for the Grand Prix yesterday. Gotta keep the supercharged daily screamer running right, heh.
@  KennyL : (12 April 2014 - 01:50 PM) lol, wow
@  BeaterStatus : (11 April 2014 - 02:58 PM) Check out the photo dump in my progress log. There's some interesting stuff in there.... lol
@  BeaterStatus : (11 April 2014 - 01:45 PM) I know right? Just wait till you see what I found INSIDE THE MOTOR
@  KennyL : (08 April 2014 - 09:57 AM) Solid numbers.
@  BeaterStatus : (06 April 2014 - 06:40 PM) Compression test on the Breeze had good results! 220psi across the board :D
@  BeaterStatus : (05 April 2014 - 11:30 AM) Pics please!
@  KennyL : (04 April 2014 - 02:35 PM) I think so. Good to see progress.
@  Low-Speed : (04 April 2014 - 11:07 AM) Kenny, reckon I should add some pictures?
@  Koolguy007 : (31 March 2014 - 06:41 PM) Im thinking about posting my rebuild log. Lots of pictures, but its mainly just a rebuild.
@  Low-Speed : (31 March 2014 - 04:38 PM) Kenny is correct, I don't post a lot. I have my rods, pistons, windage tray and base motor. need to have some machine work, order mains and gaskets.
@  KennyL : (30 March 2014 - 01:59 AM) 2.4 DOHC
@  KennyL : (30 March 2014 - 01:59 AM) Solid high compression build with large cams can fairly well do 220 HP at the wheels.
@  Koolguy007 : (30 March 2014 - 01:53 AM) When I get my job back I will be doing a good fun street car. Hopefully a 200 hp NA 2.4L with the suspension goodies. 200 hp shouldn't be too hard right?
@  Mckinney_Tx : (29 March 2014 - 09:27 PM) just checking in. i still pop in folks :D
@  Dylan214 : (27 March 2014 - 01:36 PM) Same, once i get the extra cash flow. dam NYS taxes
@  Koolguy007 : (27 March 2014 - 10:21 AM) Still lurkin.
@  KennyL : (27 March 2014 - 03:43 AM) William/LowSpeed doesn't post much but he's building a beast that is going to draw some attention to the JA platform I'm sure. I know my car will if I can ever get it built.

My A/C compressor left a big puddle of bright green dyed oil under it, so I think it's probably done for. I assume that it'll be fine if I disconnect the clutch so it can't engage (in case it tries to seize up), but just in case, I'd like to have a belt handy to bypass it.

Anybody know the length I need offhand? I don't want to dig around in there if I can help it. I have enough other stuff to do.

Another quick method to prevent unwanted clutch engagement is to pull the fuse/relay etc (not sure which it is) in the under hood compartment.

I know the measurement of the belt is in the part number. I want to say its in centimeters. I want to say its the last few digits in the part number. You can use some string and measure it, and then see if the parts store has a belt around that number via part number. That's how I did it when I installed my UDP and ODP.

Millimeters actually... well, who knows though with different brands.

No problem. I'm just trying to help him out. Thanks for the correction. I wasn't sure. I'm definitely missing my stratus...I need to get it running again. I have to sell my turbo set up first however. I'm just going to go with a 10.5 bottom end and big cams.
