Been waiting on my summer meats for an hour and 45 minutes. Bridgestone would have it done in 30 mins flat. AMA
I think you can actually import this onto the us now with the limited production replica laws... morgan makes less than 5k cars a year right?
The trick was jamming a screwdriver into the holes and forcing them to align. Somehow this is designed to be installed, in a factory, in a quick amount of time, but the engine has to be precisely square on the mounts or they fuck up. Now I have to re-tighten the frame mount bolts, get new bolts to replace the ones…
So, I'm putting the engine back in the trans am. The motor mounts are so unbelievably tight the only way I can see to put it back in is perfectly square, straight down. Almost like an insert tab a into slot b scenario. Having a hell of a time, can't get it level. Any trick to this?
Quickie for oppo: last time I took my engine and tranny out as one. Didn't like it. Now, I just want to get my engine in so I can test run it. Trans is not quite ready. I heard the appropriate method is tranny THEN engine, how bad would I be screwing myself by doing engine then tranny? 2nd gen firebird for those…
That I don’t have the space, and that I can’t realistically dip into my savings
For those following the saga. It’s remarkably difficult to shine light through the spark plug hole, but my new pistons have definitely been installed, so I don’t think there is any trickery going on there.
Clearly. Stack of dimes on that one.
Brought my engine home today. Where to begin?
Ebay motors -> replica/kit manufacturers
New Supra vs. 2019 mustang GT
Lookit my engine. It’s purdy!
see you tomorrow. I need this BTW
Rebuild time: month and a half. Breaking the engine in: also a month an a half!? Woo.
Why does it need to be this big? it’s not like the engines have gotten any bigger. Is this chevrolet acknowledging that truck buyers are all in a dick measuring contest?
So I found this by accident the other day:
if anyone is looking for something to get me for christmas. I’ll probably order it when I get home
My engine is done.
