So, after applying more heat to the two bolts, they released allowing me to pull the engine. Shattered the firewall insulater cover into a hundred pieces, (or more). If that was all, I am happy with that. Started tearing down the old engine of needed parts for the new and about 7PM stopped for the day. Tomorrow I hope to separate the engine from the front clip and get a better look at it. I can tell you right now that the two throttle bodies are different so I will have to change that out. I have no idea whether this car will be back together Tuesday night or next weekend, as slow as this process is I would be happy if I were done next Sunday.

Leetle problemo, Senor. When bolting up the flywheel, I found that the bolt hole pattern was 1/8th inch different so out came the engine for a flywheel change. Man, I was not prepared for that. And I had checked the dia. and the attach pattern to the drive and thought "I should change the flywheel, the '96 looks better" but no " who'* going to see it?" I asked myself. Well the engine did not go back in near as well as yesterday but I can with relief say that I am where I left off last night. Live and learn.

Oh dang. ya, there are two different torque converters. Bonneville L67 has a larger TC. You could have change the TC with far less effort.

I had a car here earlier this year that I did a trans build on. He bought a new TC because of the different size. I was about to swap it out and thought, I better check first. Yep, they shipped the wrong one.

Experience comes from doing, I believe. So, the mechanicals are hooked up except for coolant hoses and exhaust pipe. Wiring tomorrow and that chaos of the vacume lines. I may just be worried about the one or two sending units that may be duplicates but mix matching two systems will confuse me good. Maybe the diagram on the radiator cover will make it so simple that worry is unecessary after all. Tomorrow will tell.

Engine in, running good. Issues of unresolved maintenence. New belt tensioner, the one with the heater hoses no less. New blower control module. Keep coming up with a Oxygen sensor code. Air system won't change delivery direction. Lighting issues, all being dealt with one at a time now. So this closes this thread and takes my other issues into another area. BTW, I cussed a lot when I was trying to wire the engine with the cam and crankshaft plug-ins and asked myself why no one had told me to put them on while the engine was out? Then looking at Bill'* directions I saw that he did. Directions said separate the front engine wiring from the main. So sorry Bill. Many thanks to you and Dan for the experienced advice without which I could never have completed this repair. Thanks gents.
