    Was figuring it out for an hour. Looks like the the mounting hole for the bracket where the power steering pump goes.

      Just ordered a set of pistons

      Should be in by 3-4 weeks.

        That should do the trick, doesn't appear to be too expensive, either.

        It does say they drop-ship tomorrow, but who knows - things are thrown out of whack from the pandemic. I ordered some Global West subframe connectors about a week and a half ago now (from Jeg's), and they were supposed to ship from GW by about yesterday or the day before, but they haven't yet. But based on GW's website, I expect it's just delayed, which is fine - it snowed all day yesterday (despite being 80 for a couple days early last week) so I'm not exactly rushing outside to put body bushings in to then drive the car over to get the SFCs put in.

          Dang. Sounds brutal. All we have here are wind gusts. Can't wait for fire season. Apparently it's year round now.

            Certainly not enjoyable. Been windy here as well, but it's almost always windy. Less on the whole "fire" thing.

              Cracked open the ls1 ss rear end and it looks like the gears have a lot of play. I was hoping to reuse them to save, but looks like it's not happening. Found a strange ring and pinion set for $170, but the yukon 3.42 seems more reliable. At $370, it's gonna take a huge bite on my wallet!

                That's disappointing.

                I haven't cracked open mine yet. Not to many Granny owner F-bodies though, so I'm not holding my breath.

                  Just bit the bullet and bought an FTI built transmission with a 2800 stall from summit. I would have loved to learn how to rebuild my own 4L60, but honestly, I have more money than time at the moment.... I'm ready to be flamed.... hahaha

                    I don't think anyone would blame you for not rebuilding your automatic yourself - most wouldn't.

                      I can appreciate the sentiment, wanting to do it yourself. But I found no joy in rebuilding automatics in school. I'll pay to have mine done.
