Joel has been a huge help on this .. and to keep up with him today we had to mount the tranny and engine to get the positioning for the new mounts .
I used some round tube I had , worked out great ...

ok , so now we're done with the fitting of the engine .. time to make it perdy Smile

first I started with removing the pan .. for those whom don't know , the original oil pan and pick up on the 5Vzfe wont fit this application . so as you saw in the previous pictures , I already powder coated the pan I need ..
With the pan off , I can now drill the new dipstick location .. and install the new holder
installed with a little red LOCKTITE just for "piece of mind"




also removed the "front end" to replace with all new parts
new oil pump , water pump , timing belt , bearings ect .......

little more today ..

still working on the front lift , so got the crossmembers , shocks , sway bar , axles , and a few other things







also checked the rear harness for damage , and re wrapped



POR15'ing the frame , you need to remove all the "lock" clips , so this is what I use to lock the harness into place



straps not yet tightened , as I may need to move the harness one way or the other
