I just got the email yesterday from Photobucket saying my account (Plus20) will not longer be offered and I'll need to upgrade to another plan within 30 days.

However, it appears only the $400/yr plan will continue to permit 3rd party hosting (the ability to copy the link from PB and have the image presented on sites like here vs a link sending the user back to Photobucket). 

Has anybody found a more competitive offering??



Ive just started to use as my host for my pics and I'm very pleased so far!
They only charge $24/year for hosting 100 GB, I think that's accurate!

Photobucket are lost in space and hopefully they will change their policy otherwise they don't exist before the end of this year....

They wouldn't load at all for me yesterday. They loaded instantly today. Go figure. :)
Great, Kurt!  ;D

pics loaded fine for me, and i am on a slow connection. I like all the pics in general. What kind of heat shield is that for the starter solenoid?
The heat shield is the one that's in the AIM and was originally mounted on all engines I guess?
Its just a thin metal plate so I'm not sure how efficient it is but I like how the engine designer thought when they made it back in the 60:ies...they knew the solenoid has a place there near the manifold so...

I used the 1884R also. Hmmm. I've heard others have the same problem that you did also. I don't blame you on using the studs on that block!!
OK, great. But I think there is different bolt kits out there and they all came to be original but I think they differ in length...?!
No, the studs are great, especially when ju planning of taking the pan off a couple of times as I do.!  :P

The pictures are huge. They timed out before they loaded - and I'm on a kinda fast connection. Anyone else having that issue?
As I wrote above Ive noticed that too, but I really don't know how to fix that? :-[ I think many sites must have like an autocorrect fix for large pics but this site doesn't I guess?
...but I don't really have any upload issues though!  :P

Looks great Hakan! I wouldn't use anything but that Felpro gasket. They work great for me. I just used factory bolts. They were plenty long enough. I like your stud idea though.
Thanks, Dave!  ;D
I agree regarding the FelPro but the original bolts wasn't long enough for me, especially the two for the chain cover! This is the 1884R-gasket, which ine did you use?
I wanted to use studs due to the aluminum block, I'm afraid of over-torqueing the bolts and then destroying the threads... ::)

Im back and I've decided to let go of the ****ty after their hostile behavior the last months. My new supplier is that I hope will have a more mature business.
While Im new at Fotki and I've noticed that at some sites, like this one, the pics are larger but I don't know how to scale them automatically yet, sorry!
OK, here we go again and I believe we were around here the last time we could se the pics...cause I cant see them anymore either! :(
Fuel- and water pump in place together with manifolds and valve covers:

Oil splash guard in place:

The hotter thermostat for alu-engines in place:

The temp sender unit has after the pic were taken been moved to its correct place in the left hand side cylinder head.
Oil filter adapter has landed:

The correct and also authentic oil dipstick:

Alternator and belt. The screws has been sent to correct black surface treatment.

Intake, thermostat housing and fuel line mounted:


I just hade to put it on, sorry! :)

Finally I've mounted the oil pan with the one-piece gasket from FelPro. Very expensive but so nice it fitted and I'm so glad to use this one instead of the old school and not customer friendly 4-piece original gasket!

I had to make my own studs while ARP didnt have any set for this FelPro gasket...


Oil pressure sensor and break-in filter in place together with a transport-mount of the flex plate:

Starter with bracket and heat shield in place:

...and the dipstick in its correct place:

Its getting closer now....! :) be continued, welcome again! :)

Lookin good!  8)
...I also have a complete set of NOS mud flaps that I intend to use on my ZL-1 tribute car! :)
The dog dish and steel wheels are already on my Hugger orange X44 and Im also going for the DX-1 stripes but I want to all of it in vinyl but I haven't find a single supplier for that, strange I guess when a paint template is almost the same thing?
Ive spoken with Phoenix Graphix but they weren't that interested, that's a pity for them I guess....! >:(

Does anybody here know where to get a correct set of DX-1 stripe in vinyl, NOT for painting?

Ok, thanks William.
But you don't happen to have that book, do you? You can send me an PM if you have....

I don't seem to find any engine pics of that #3 ZL-1 car, did you have any of those too? ;)

Near as I can tell all ZL1 engines were assembled with the studs, used or not. They are visible in original engine photos of ZL1 #3, a 4-speed.

The drawing is a page from the ZL1 engine assembly manual.

What? :)
Is there a ZL-1 engine assambly manual? Never heard of and is possible to download it?
I would really appreciate that kind of document in my ZL-1 build right now.....

Great William, but why do they don't have extra bolts in the kit for all of us that don't need the studs?
There only three washers and not four either, strange?
Where did you get that pic?

I bought a master screw kit for my ZL-1 project but I don't really understand where all the stud bolts should go when mounting the aluminum intake?
They look like this:

As I t says there one should be for the alternator bracket and one maybe for the fuel block, but the rest? It's four of them in the kit.

How can we act to make photobucket reasonable again, suggests?

Hit'em where it hurts.  Stop using them.  I did over a year ago.
That's easier said then done, Im afraid!  :(
I've got threads that I started years ago and they still are active and to start to edit the pics, if its even possible, its not an option!  :'(
