    SLT 750, one large jigsaw puzzle:

    So I sold my '94 for pennys to a neighbor that lost his leg to an IED last fall, and found this '95 a guy was selling cheap (he bought a foreclosed house and found it sitting in a barn, with part of a rod sticking out of the #3 pot). He had torn EVERYTHING apart and sat on it for a year before deciding it wasnt worth his time/money to fix it. He did the work of getting a title, so I was going to make it my kneeboarding machine.......before I bought this Challenger 1800.
    Now its a become a fight between me and the SLT, and I know Im going to loose my ass on it, but it WILL run. It came as a hull and 3 cardboard boxes full of parts, but I'm addicted to the thought of getting it running instead of parting it out.
    Already bought a SBT crank, WSM engine seal kit, RIK rings, a clean jug/piston on here, and had the cylinders honed:

    Now comes the problem with puzzles: they sometimes are missing peices.

    I went through everything I could last night, and made a list of the oddball stuff I need. If anyone has most of these parts they'd be willing to sell cheap, please let me know.

    2-bolt/washers for wiring harness where it exits engine block

    2- starter bolts

    6- nuts, holds the carb studs to the intake manifold

    2- lower airbox-to-carb bolt/washer

    1- blue Fuji upper airbox half (this one is cracked in several places)

    12 - bolts that hold the two airbox halves together (I lost most of the ones on my '94 as well, trying to get it perfect as well).

    Please help me keep this thing alive!

    Those should all be standard metric sized stainless bolts that you can find at any hardware store. I don't think you will find any weird ones. McMaster carr also sells them in larger packages.

    Yeah, this is worse than RedBull mixed with crack!

    The carb-manifold nuts at 10mm, as are the airbox-to-carb bolts. The airbox screws are standard pitch, phillips head...not sure on size. I'll get more info when I get home tonight.

    I need to run to Troy some night next week, guess I could just keep going and meet up with you if you have the time.

    I found a few bolts, fabed a few more, and ordered the rest from WSM. Now all I need is the top air box cover and all the bolts to hold it on!

    The person that pulled the engine was nice enough to leave the shims on the motor mounts, and even wrote the number of shims next to the mount in paint pen. But one mount has 8 shims and one has 9 shims. Does that sound right? Would factory be that many?? The engine had .25+ pistons in it, so it was not stock.

    Varying #'s shims is entirely possible.

    ok, I had never seen more than 5 shims on one mount, so it suprised me to see 9 on one.

    Someone may have been trying to align the engine with the jet pump, but you don't know if they did it correctly.

    Any signs that the jet pump base has been re-installed?

    You may want to use an alignment tool and verify the alignment is indeed correct.
