LN3 and trans are sitting on a dolly in my garage. PM Randman1 about its future and subframe.

As indicated, motor and trans are just taking up space in Bill'* garage. Subframe was in Holyoke, MA at Ron'* lot but I'm not sure if it'* still there. He removed the 97 shell a couple of weeks ago and I don't know what else he took.

Whatcha planning?

They are still at the lot. I'm looking for a set too... Not sure if Franky'* original rims are causing the scraping problem being mounted on the 97 front end. Two still need rehabilitated though

Whatcha planning?
shot ya a pm about them but im not planning much, i know the transmission is on its way out in the bonneville, i doubt it will make it to 200k without starting to slip or just take a dump like my se'* tans did

and i found out the other day that my frame is bent when i took it in for an alignment cuz the steering wheel is to the right ever since i bought it looks like they hit a pothole (huge ones are common over here in the winter, hit one last winter in my old mitsu and threw the alignment right off, the wheel went all the way to the right, lucky there was a lifetime alignment on it tho so i just took it back.

as for the axles in the pm, mine are bad......reallllllllllly bad, im talking BAD!

the reason i was askin you guys is cuz i was readin up on ur swap in frankenbonnie and i saw a pic of the engine and trans with a caption that said waiting to be hauled off by a scrapper or something.........if they are both still good, no sense in scrappin them huh?

Arrange transportation/crating and the engine and trans are yours. OSG looked into the shipping and it was around $600. Might be more than a used one in your area. The AC comperssor is noisy, the belt tensioner is broken, oil pressure sender was taken off and the +12v PCM connector was cut off. Not sure if all of the motor mounts are present and accounted for. Otherwise, the motor and trans operated great before it was removed.

I think the subframe is still available but is quite rusty. You could sandblast and paint it to be OK. I would recommend ordering a complete new set of rubber isolaters and steeel spacers. they were in bad shape.

The axles should be gone. they were in the 97 shell when it was carted off.
