She lives!

Recommended Posts

Started the 5.3 after 5 years of not having the car yesterday.  Everything went fairly smooth with no leaks or weird noises.  Lifters were a little loud, but settled down on the second start.  My fan didn't come on, but after some research I determined that the PCM grounds pin 42 instead of sending 12v.  My pin 85 and 86 in the fan relay were both set to ground so the relay was never going to get energized.  Pin 86 will be given 12v and now it should come on.  Nice to have the first start monkey off the back and get to finishing the car.

congrats! Nice job on the fire extinguisher as well! 

Thanks!  I had an 87' RX7 in high school that caught fire twice.  First time I put it out with an extinguisher, the second time I didn't have an extinguisher and had to watch it burn to the ground.  After that lovely event, I always make sure I have one handy.
