Default Cavalier progress....(56k uhh....)

Got quite a bit done yesterday. Flywheel is separated from the trans, all wiring and hoses are pulled, etc. Today or tomorrow the cherry picker is going on and I am separating the trans and engine and the 'ol 2.2 is finally coming out. I diagnosed the 2.2 as the waterpump going, overheated the engine, cracked the head and locked the engine up due to the heat.

Before -



After-

the 3.1 MPFI/5 speed out of my rotted '92 Z24.

OR if the timing is right, a 3.4 block with the 3.1 heads and associated parts.

As requested - More pics - Please note that the body rust on this, is nowhere near as bad as the Z24'* rust. The rockers on the Z24 are completely gone, along with the bottoms of the doors.

THESE Pics here are the rot on the '92 Z24 that was deemed unsafe to drive. Notice the rot where the springs sit.
