Swapping stuff over is about all I did today. Manifolds, p/s bracket, oil pan, motor mounts, valve covers had to swap sides, the part that connects the crank to the flywheel, water pump bracket, water pump, thermostat and I think thats about it..
Dipstick tube was bent, I got it removed, but removing the old dipstick tube it broke. Need to find a dipstick tube now.
Stripped the old motor of any remaining good parts. Then got the new motor dangling in position and routed the wiring harness. Thats how I left it, hanging like a piece of meat.
Couple pics I took. First is the old motor. New motor looks a lot prettier.
This project is boarder line hard where it's almost worth it to pay someone.
Here is the throw out bearing that was stuck and needed to come out. I drilled it.
Had a buddy come over to help join the engine and trans. It of course was a bear. I broke the crankshaft position sensor, have an extra, but its a tough one to replace. Other than that its just a matter of putting on the rest of the accessories. Probably won't have a much of an update till shes running (it's going to run right?), and then we start replacing the rocker panels.
