      Radiator installedish


      and plugging some holes


      time to reduce some underhood heat and get rid of that ugly dent



      wrapping just what is in the engine compartment


      then a coat of black to keep the fraying down

            For those who are curious what the transmission mount looks like for a TKO600 - it's the shinyish one


            driveshaft, red.... not sure why but I do see I need to find another u-joint


            this was fun




            plan b was set on jackstands and lift the engine with the cherry picker




            z-bar.... I know I'll be glad of it when it's all installed, but right now I'm not too keen on it

                    It's like any other old thing, it forgets stuff and thinks it's better then it really is

                      as with most, cheap headers, these sort of fit


                      some trimming required




                      yum, tasty fiberglass


                      oddly, it's not at the same level (horizontal)


                      more hacking


                      and this side (passenger) looks to need nothing


                      first step, put spacers in the motor mount


                      better but where those lines are need heat


                      now it fits


                      however, all is not peachy

                      I had this same issue on Plastic 1



                      driveshaft mostly installed (need 2 more clamps)


                      someone asked me once how far the side pipes hang down.... not at all


                      and Photobucket - I'm moving host, but that means that some of my old threads are going to be de-pictured... sorry, but at this point it's kind of the only choice (and I'm not backing off fighting them)


                      more bits waiting


                      this is cool

                          Good for you! They screwed with the wrong dude. But how many common folk have they bullied in paying more or getting less?

                            Starter, wired


                            distributor with adjustable collar, arrived


                            Spark plugs, gapped and installed. In case your curious what lights off the beast - Briggs and Stratton spark plugs.


                            Dog installed


                            linkage, installed - one of those times I'm really glad to have a shop full of parts, my goodness that was a pain finding all the bits that worked together


                            I think the oil cooler is going in front (just not that oil cooler)


                            Spiderman had red webbing today


                            still need to do a fuel system but at this point the drivetrain is together (brakes, clutch, driveshaft, etc)

                              Need to point something out - I'm didn't post that stuff because I'm trying to prove that I'm some kind of legal badass; rather, I want anyone who is having trouble with them to follow that template and turn the screws on them too.... what they're doing is wrong and has already created a legal violation that could cost them a bunch - however, that takes years to realize and this - just like the app I linked - takes their business decision and hangs them with it. Many companies get away with this because the time between legal malfeasance and legal punishment can be decades; thus they do get away with it because they get the money, cause the headache, then get some bankruptable slap on the wrist....
