That'* a good bit of work for one day, it sounds like you'll have her running by the dawn of next week. Hopefully everything works out with the A/C too. Keep the info coming.

It was actually only a few hours of work. No update for today, since I worked my second job, then went to a friends house to help with drywall. I just came home to get more clothes, since we are going to go swimming at his place and have a few cold ones while sitting around a fire.

So today was a day off from the car, LOL.

But I did get a few more parts for the car today, new oil pan gasket, new spark plugs ( just the regular delcos for now till we see the engine run), new valve cover gaskets, and a few other little things.

Here we go with another update.


Today I managed to put a new oil pan gasket on, install the block heater ( previous engine was only driven in summer), change the water pump, installed the new plugs, converted from a Magnavox to Delco style ignition, install the new AC compressor and a few other small things, then around 4:30pm the engine was finally sitting in the car, sorta.

I had to move it around a bit, took maybe 30 minutes before it sat like it should in the motor mount holes. I then proceeded to put it back together. I decided that at around 10pm it was time to quit.

That I can think of, I have the rear plug wires to install, the oil sensor and a coolant sensor, and couple of grounds, the fans, the upper and lower rad hose, and a few other minor little things ( it'* the little things that kill you time wise though).

I hope to have this car back up and running within a couple days ( with work and all).

I do have a couple of pics of the engine finally installed, but I will have to grab them from my camera in the morning.

Thoughts on initial startup.

Here is what I was planning on doing. I know the engine did sit for a bit so I was going to unplug the ICM so that it would not start right away but still crank to get some oil pressure going.

Should I also unplug the injectors so that I do not flood the engine, which will make the actual startup a bit harder?

Make it easier... just unplug the ECM fuse... No fuel, no injector pulse, and I think no spark...

I'd crank it through by hand a couple times. Put the trans in Neutral, and crank the crank pulley around a couple rotations. Then do what Don said.

Stupid question, clockwise or counter clockwise, or does it make any difference?
