Mine was in a very tight spot to get a wrench on, and being a plastic cable, I was not able to determine just how tight I had it.

After a few miles the adj slipped and burned out the new reman.

I bought an original GM TV cable to instal when the trans comes back from the rebuilder.

Was kind of on the fence for a while between the 700R4 and a 4L60E. Since I wanted to minimize the electronics, I went with the 700R4 even though I've heard that they're Very Picky about adjusting the TV cable. I'll probably have someone do that who has some experience with them before I take it out on the road. Point taken about your adjuster slipping and Thx for the heads up!

Default PS update

Spoke with C-I/Miguel & Danny and CPP/Aaron about the pump not working with the recommended pullley. CPP's response; "We see no problem. Take it up with C-I." C-I pulled a pump and pulley and say that they're seeing the same interference problem that I reported. They recommended that I gently shave some meat off of the side of the body where it interferes with the pulley. I Don't like it, but will do that...and crossing my fingers/legs/eyes that it doesn't result in other problems. Per C-I/Danny, they Say they'll take the modified pump back if it still doesn't work right. (rrrright) Should Not have to modify a part to get it to fit!! More to come.

TV cable adjustment is very simple. cable should be tight -1/16"at full throttle. if you pull the throttle full open you should be able to pull the end of the tv cable appx 1/16" more.

Can I ask why you are running (or trying) a double shiv pulley on the P/S? Every trifive I have put P/S on with a short style pump used a single shiv pulley.

I just now got a chance to check your thread out. Good luck getting your pulleys sorted out. I'd hate to have to go through that again without a donor motor to pull the brackets pulleys, and accessories off of at the same time. I don't think you will be unhappy with the regular Performer manifold and the Vortec heads on a 383 street car. It ought to be torquey.

It's what was provided by the vendor. Single or double doesn't matter to me as long as it Works.

I wish I had a donor motor, but I don't. Pulley alignment issues and interfering brackets never crossed my mind when I was planning this. The presumption is that "all inclusive kits" include everything and that it all works together properly. I also figured that whatever I needed in the way of brackets & pulleys I could just order up from our local Chevrolet dealership parts department. Wrong, Wrong, and Wrong.

Once I get the PS issue resolved, I still need to shim the alternator out so that it will align with the crank pulley. Off almost 1.5" right now. One issue at a time, though.

Not happy with the way the A/C compressor and the alternator hit the valve covers using the brackets that I got, but as long as they're working not going to do anything about it. Besides, shimming it out enough to align with the crank pulley may fix that problem too.

The single should solve your problem.

Response from CPP; "The CP38808 is an exact reproduction of the factory GM pulley specs. Fits the pump, never had any interference problems." Therefore, the metallic scraping noise and pulley's failure to fully seat on the pump shaft is all in my imagination. Even though C-I was able to duplicate the problem with stock from their warehouse. What's wrong with this picture??

Lessons learned; 1) "All-in-1" kits aren't. 2) Just because the vendor says parts work together doesn't mean they Do. 3) "We stand behind our products" is advertising, not policy.

I'm thinking that I should've just gone with putting an LS in the car instead of the 383. At least brackets & pulleys would be available over the counter and they'd WORK together. It'd be Boring, but it would work without this tooth-and-nail fight.

Almost got the Ididit column & 500 box install completed. Now have to figure out how to sync the 500 box to the column so that we have the same turning radius in both directions, and modify the steering wheel so that it's at 12 o'clock when the wheels are straight ahead while making sure that the turn signals still cancel properly. Of course, the Ididit column came with no instructions and there are no installation videos or instructions for this (column shifter, non-tilt) on their website. (sigh)

If you (or anybody that reads this) need any help in setting up the column, please feel free to call us here at ididit. We will always do our best to answer your questions. There should have been an instruction booklet in with the column. I can easily get you one if you'd like. While it doesn't go over every aspect of installing a column, I do feel it's pretty complete including how to properly clock the cancelling cam so your turn signals cancel properly.
