Anybody get on here anymore?

@  ejguillot : (01 November 2019 - 02:23 AM)

It should be possible, you might want to get a surplus connector so you can hook the fan motor to a battery.

@  Greg2000GS : (01 November 2019 - 01:58 AM)

cooling fan suspect. Is there a way to test it by jumping connector?

So, it may seem very sacrilegious, but I've been running my 98 with the belt off the SC for about 2 years.  I've had issues keeping the oil in ever since I changed out the coupler several years ago, this will be I think the 4th time I've had it off.  First couple of times I blamed on using the wrong sealant, but using the correct red sealant it all leaked out after a 20 min drive. I also tried a reman snout from Ebay because I thought it might be leaking from the pulley seal.  So after that I basically gave up.  But now I've decided to give it another shot before winter sets in.  I have the proper oil and the blue anaerobic sealant from Auto Zone, I'm just wondering if there's anything I should know about after it's been sitting idle for so long.  The pulley still turns, however I can't get the fill plug out to suck out any remaining oil.  Figured I'd hit it with some penetrating oil from the back side after I took it off.  Any thoughts or ideas are welcome, I'll probably get started on it tomorrow morning although I'm working OT so I'm not rushing since I have an extra vehicle.

So you can't get the fill plug out to suck out any old oil, that means you can't fill it with new oil either. Is it cross threaded maybe?

its a torx bit in a lot of them plugs, not a allen head.  after mine stripped out, i pounded a flat head screw driver into hex of the plug and then leaned on it hard and turned it with a large adjustable wrench on the screw driver.

Project didn't even start because my back and hip were killing me from having to wear a boot due to a broken foot lol.  I just figured the plug was seized from sitting that long with virtually no oil in the S/C.  Plan was to hit it from the inside after removal with some Gibbs or some type of penetrating oil, although I could try it from the outside and let it sit for half an hour as well.  It definitely isn't torx, but I wonder if the size wrench I was using was a little too small the first couple of times and now it's rounded out a little.
