Wendy and I made it home. We stopped in Salem for lunch and we got all the way back to Hillsboro when Wendy realized she forgot her PDA there. We did a turn around and got it. Any ways here are the few pics I took:

Nice toque O'Neil. I would have thought you'd be in a tank top enjoying all that warm weather down there.

The tranny has 3 mounts. The engine only has one.

Tranny is supported by two mounts on the driver'* side (front and rear, front is the one we worked over, Paul), and a dogbone on the tailshaft housing on the passenger side. No support is needed. The motor bolts to the trans, and is supported only by the torque-axis mount additionally.

A few pics, I didn't take many today. There was a ton of cleaning, prepping, gaskets, and torquing involved today. We stayed very busy. Got the INTENSE oil pressure kit and false knock kit installed, the motor is in with everything EXCEPT the LIM, SC, Intercooler, rockers and pushrods. We ran into an axle bind problem on the passenger side while installing the torque-axis mount. It'* preventing the motor from coming down on that side. Tomorrow, we'll pull the right side hub and free it up, or replace the axle.

Little trick for holding the backwards bolt in place:

So we have to deal with the axle tomorrow, tighten the backwards bolt, hook up the radiator hoses, oil cooler lines, belts, LIM, SC, intercooler, pushrods, rockers, valve covers, and alternator. Alot to do, but not that big of a deal. Just time consuming.

Damn, all work and no play, eh? Well, I guess you'll have your play time when you're finished, right?

Still, looks like you guys are having a great time...

I want to be there.........We have a snowfall warning in effect here, and the power went out at 5:00AM, just long enough to screw up all the clocks in the house, thank goodness long enough to make the camera printer go crazy and wake me up. SO guess what I was doing at 5:15AM


I am so glad you are all having a great time. Oh and Honey I miss you......(and your shovelling skills)
