progress. These pics are all phone shots. The camera is still up with the rig at the shop.

Saturday we got the shortblock out and then I got in there and replaced the hoses by the firewall, the power steering lines and cleaned the frame by the steering gear to check for cracks (none). Cleaned a lot more parts and bought silicone vacuum line at Carquest since the uber-performance stuff I ordered from a local Denver tuner shop was definitely not 3.5 mm. Also got the cats and header pipes off (not fun) to swap my 226,000 cats for the 170,000 mile ones and replace gaskets and fasteners.

Sunday we set the new motor. Put lots together. The used radiator I purchased turned out to be missing the small top pipe used to keep the intake from icing so after installing it 3x (Robbie warned me not to trap a tranny cooler line under it but I did anyway) I had to pull it out. The very cool gentleman who sold it to me was also unaware that the pipe was missing and has promised a full refund. Today I refinanced my house and ordered a OEM radiator (too many unknowns with aftermarket and could not get a Koyo for a week).

Tim - see that shiny pulley....

Are you sticking with the original trans or swapping it out for my old one?

Looks like you will be up and running before me.

I'm sticking with mine. We decided that they hold up really well and the work of swapping vs. the benefit vs. the marketability of a 226k tranny vs. 170k fell in favor of leaving mine in.

How is yours going?

Good thing you remembered to pull that purple bottle.

Almost there! So are you including a York this time 'round?

And the bag of chips ahoy. Not sure of compressor type. Also, I'll have to make a bracket from scratch.

Does your mechanic send you pictures of your rig?
