That is great news!!
Don, Its a 88
Another long day in the garage.
Had a problem with the AA mounts. I had set up a welder friend to come to my house to weld in the mounts. THey were C clamped in this morning. I marked the mounts and unbolted the motor from the mounts and raised it up.
Drilled the 2 mounting holes through the frame and bolted them on. I then tried to re mount the motor on the mounts and they came up short witdh wise. .
Was pissed that it wouldnt fit and I was sure that I didnt move the mounts when driling
I then remembered that I had to pull the frame mounts with the C clapm to get them on the frame. I looseened the bolts a bit then the bolt mounts lined up. I then tightened the frame bolts to draw them to the frame.
Both mounts are set at full width and mine are set a few inches forward of the originals. Wonder why they dont fit correctly? They work but are tight.
This awap is going very different from what I have read about othere.
First thing is the drive shafts. both of mine stil fit pefectly
Also it looks like the skid plate will fit too. I have plenty of space for the fan and the radiator. I also have good air cleaner to hood space
I am having a problem shifting the transfer case. Not to knowedgeable about when to shift into 4wd. Should the transmission be in N ?
I guess this is the least of my problems and should get to work on the electrics
Thsts it for tonight. Vacation is on Wednesday so i will have a week of down time. Im sure my wifes happy
