Everything but the heads are left on the block. Have to wait until tomorrow to get ahold of an impact gun for the cam pulleys.

Rod bearing number 2 was the culprit to all the noise. Everything else is being parted. I'll have a thread up once I clean everything off in the dorm shower Lol.

I'm guessing the oil pick up cracked and sucked air instead of oil.

Harness is out and hopefully sold. Got a rough quote on all my swap parts just waiting on a full parts list.

So I got fined for having a short block under my dorm bed which is unfortunate. I forgot to post up two videos I had when the car was still running.

Me running a big turbo dart. He's the camera car.


And some parking lot fun. There wasn't nearly enough snow but still a good time.

Wow I'm glad you got through the b.s into the swap Lol. Yeah I ran into a few problems and would definitely do major maintenance BEFORE swapping.

i have a lead on a long block for $250 cause the heads are pretty much junk so before i put it in my car i was going to do the timing belt and all new gaskets. im gonna do as much as i can to the motor maintenance wise as i can before it goes in so that way i hopefully wont have to rip it out again too soon afterwards.

Good Idea.. I made the mistake of not re-gasketing and had to rip it out 1000 miles later.

i figured it would be a good thing to do and after reading your thread that certainly convinced me to do it.

im interested to see your new motor that you are doing.

After dealing with multiple threats from campus "police" I had to move my car off campus. Apparently a non running car takes up a spot someone with a running car needs, because I don't pay to park to. AAA came and picked it up and brought it to my new "garage". I lifted the car two inches to get on the flat bed and still scraped the **** out of the rear bumper.



Its a single car 10x20 storage unit but has plenty of room to work.



I'm shopping around for a decent TIG but I'll most likely end up getting the Eastwood one because its within the budget. Also I found out that one of my roommates was the one who called me in for having parts in the dorms.

Yeah this is the new beginning of the car. So far I'm just collecting parts and planning everything out so I only have to do things once.
