Updates on post #43!
Updates on post #16!

I'm tired so i'm not typing lots, I've been working on the Car until nightfall with 3 hours of sleep so the pictures basically explain themselves you can view the filenames to see what's happening. Keep in mind this is my first time.

Thanks to Grimjack who posted the easy removal steps on SM. Big Help

To those who thought i didn't have a supra... and to those who need some inspiration for their car's project to come off the backburner.

Enjoy and comment.

Oh yeah i don't like the colours of the engine either but it wasn't me.

Before you start this, get one of these.



This is my SP61GT that is going on, Used a DVD for reference for size
look at the difference between this and the CT-26 further below.

Yeah leaking valve covers BHG probably a rod knock and other misc oil leaks so i'm like screw it and lets use a reliable new motor that i can run higher boost on and hardpipes and 3" turboback and BIC DDP without worrying.

I've got ARP undercut headstuds and a MHG to go in.

DUDE-
That is a SERIOUSLY scary engine hoist!
Aside from the clear bending in the arm, there's that little 1/4 inch flat plate thingy that is responsible for lifting the entire engine and tranny assembly. Please watch yer ballz!
Anyway- looks like fun- I'm about to do that again as well.

Sure will unpaint that motor!

Do i detect a hint of Monty Python humour? your mother was a hampster and your father reeks of elderberry!


anyway...

I wish i had used the regular hook that you normally use but that's all he had, he said that he lifted his suburban motor with that so i figured it would be ok.
Also the extension is a little smaller so theres a bit of room before the end of the bar hits the top of the hoist's arm... if you get what i'm saying.

By the way i'm the one on the left

More Progress

I've sent the engine off to the shop and received it back after being rebuilt.

Here are a few pics up to where I am now,

Off To The Shop

Intake Side, you can tell it's a wrecker motor due to the yellow markings.


More of the Olympic Sized Oil Pool



The best way to get the motor in if your friend with the pickup cancelled out at the last minute, is to back the exploder up, rather than push the hoist and have it swing every which way.

Getting the right height.




The Girl who did it all,


And In after much stopping to check every few inches.


The rebuild up in a few mins so hang tight while I upload them.
