someone should clean all the motor accessories while the motor is out and they are easy to reach

I'm not worried about it, it will be done, just as long as I get my PCM in time

UPDATE: Last night I modded the engine wiring harness to accept the 97 PCM and the 4T65e HD,

TODAY: I took the day off of work, I'm taking the motor off the garage floor and putting it in the car.

NEXT UPDATE: Motor is in

Everything is bolted up except for the flexplate to torque converter bolts, I didn't feel like doing it last night. The PCM will be here today, now all I need is some plugs and wires, and a new battery and she will have life again :P Pics coming probably tomorrow.
