Fixed it.

Sounds like fun! Wish I didn't get enough of that kinda fun here! Make sure that torque convertor is fully seated before tightening up the bell housing!

Yes you get to have engine install parties all the time!

This is stick shift so just clutch and pressure plate. I torqued them down to spec, and will do it again after I remove it to put the stupid pilot bush in that I didn't realize was missing (due to the engine coming out of an auto)

I assume you can do an install without help, and I am sure I could too, but I know that for at least aligning the engine and transmission it's much easier with a hand. I went and helped fireman short put his engine in a couple of weeks ago and he only needed a hand for about an hour to get the engine lined up and a few bolts in place in the bell housing, and motor mounts in.

But as I said, the more the merrier, and I don't expect anyone to have to do a whole lot. I'm perfectly happy doing all the dirty work and getting under the truck (bell housing bolts, motor mounts, and downpipe). Hooking up the fuel lines, wiring harness, etc is pretty easy on these, and with the radiator out of the way so are the power steering lines. Radiator is easy too, although the top coolant lines may need some adjustment and due to the differences in the lower pipes I plan to switch the reservoirs. I have to make a little harness for the ignition module but that's easy as I have the connectors now.

Am I forgetting anything? I'm still sans clutch hydraulics parts so that won't be hooked up.

Whoohoo, clutch hydraulic bits arrived. 17 days via air mail for 0.5kg envelope. Crazy.

Crickets...

Anyone coming have a soft line for the clutch, and/or what thread it is? I bought a new one and also the lock nut, but the lock nut never came. I am stripping the threads on the soft line with the old nut. So at a minimum I need to get a nut that fits and likely a new line. This is the smaller upper side. Will be ordering something as soon as I can get online otherwise.

Thanks,
Charles

Thanks Dave, It seemed close to a m10 1.5 nut I have but not close enough so that sounds about right.

Do you have a M10 1.0 tap and die? I'm going to see if I can order a replacement but maybe I can salvage what I have if it doesn't arrive in time. Otherwise it just means it isn't going anywhere Saturday, and it's a tad harder to put in with the engine in the bay.

I might be able to borrow the tap and die set from the Toy Store. Call me in the AM

Also, you need a M10-1 nut?, I am sure I have that or HD will

I have already damaged the threads on the flex line - yes was too hasty and should have tried to buy a nut first. My HD sucks for nuts and bolts, especially metric, but now that I have screwed up the threads I'm wary of being able to verify it is indeed m10 1.0, as well as being able to get the hard line threaded on cleanly without then screwing that up. So at this point I think I need to run a die over the threads and if it looks decent, go get a nut. I'll see if I can get to Lowes tomorrow night and get one in advance if you can bring a die.

Otherwise it just means I won't be able to test drive it until I can get a replacement. Not the end of the world, and any number of other things could go wrong and put me in the same boat anyway

I checked my tap and dies and I have m10 x1.25 so maybe that is it? You can thread on a 3/8-24 but it is a loose fit.

edit: checked again with a brake flex hose and they are M10 x 1.0 as originally suspected. I don't have the die for it. you need a short (jam) nut

Charles, Call Loic. He has several Metric nuts/bolts in all sizes. He may have what you need.

For some reason, I had the red 90 in my mind, which, as you know, is auto! For the last 5 years, I've had to do them by myself, but it is so much nicer to have an employee!

Thanks Dave

Yes, existing is a jam nut but it appears there is room for a regular sized one. I also need a few nuts for the exhaust studs still so will go to Lowes this evening and hopefully they will have them.

Pedro, I'll call Loic - I need to get my table saw from him anyway. Gotta start laying some hardwood flooring next week.

Trevor, good to hear the new guy is working out.

Chuck, I'm 100% in. Someone better bring donuts and strippers.

Anyone need 110 rear shafts?

Goose, you want me to bring the rack stuff?
