Also in my search I found that a crate motor from a dealership will cost about $2500. This does not require a core deposit and includes a front cover, which I have found most companies don't include. I think I have decided to save for one of those after I put in one of the motors I've found cheap. I can always rebuild the cheap one for performance after I put the new motor in, or sell it cheap to someone in need. I will at least have my car on the road. I think if I get this car going I'm going to name it Lazarus

In the next week or two, I hope, on the cheap one. I'm actually have a "picker" at my in-laws and I will by a stand down the road a little. I even have an great air compressor for pneumatics there, table grinder, band saw, table saw, drill press, ramps, all kinds of fun stuff. I wish I could have it all here in the apartment :(

Hey Jarhead.....lemme know if you need anything. Remember I have Chilton'* and Haynes, as well as the 2-book FSM for 1993 (almost identical to the 92). Things start getting busy for me on the 11th when Pfamily gets here from BC (or at least BUSIER)....but I'll bend over backwards as far as I can to get that beast of yours here for the Meet.

Much appreciated. A copy of the service manual would be worth it'* weight in gold on this "little" project I'll let you know if It'll be soon. I have to get one of those motors first. I will be in Albany soon regardless picking up a block for the Starion / Conquest. Maybe we can meet up for a bit. Catch up and what not.

Ok....but if you walk off with my factory service manuals, and we need them for reference to answer a post, you gotta spend more time online You'll probably want my scantool again? It would be nice to have the stuff here for the meet, but you can take it back home again after

I'll only use them as long as I need them, or at least only while I'm actually doing the work. I'll have to go to Eugene to do the work anyway so you're in route. I will be hitting you up for a few part numbers in the next day or so. I also want to look into motor mounts, and upgrading them. Let'* face it, there'* no better time

too many hands can be a drawback I think. I like to be involved in every part of the swap so when all is said and done, if something goes wrong, I will only have myself and Will to blame
