    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Possible Father and Daughter project, 88 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Classic Brougham

    I like to hear the good. The bad, not so much... Got to get that temp down. If you can get the temp down to a normal 180, you should see a rise in oil pressure, unless it never rises above 15 psi. I would not think that headers, and duals killed the mileage.

    Well you got the tools, but what a bummer on the pulley. Money you didn't need to spend. Let me know what Larry says, as I have not ordered my power steering pulley yet. I pick up my stock Mustang 5.0 crank pulley tomorrow.

    If you have or buy the power steering pulley tool, it removes, and installs the pulley. There is a groove (like a ring land in a piston), and the tool is like a clam shell, and installs around the groove, and then the stud (tool) tightens against the power steering's pump stud, to reinstall...
