Went to the junk yard Saturday. Found a 97 that was in good condtion. After 4 hours of rolling in 9 inches of snow and busting multiple knuckles, I had a small block. The guy laughed at me when I pulled my old one out of the trunk of my Neon. He said that he had a hoist in the garage and all I had to do was back up to it.
Spent the rest of the afternoon Sat cleaning the new block and making sure everything was good. Sunday spent all day until 1200AM Mon putting the new block in. Again, rolling around in 9 inches of snow and freezing temps.
For some reason my idle is a bit rough at start up, and accel is very sluggish, but it idles fine after warm up. I'll post more details after I get out of work today.
