well it's time to get some progress on this thing.
so yesterday i enlisted the help of one of my pals to get this v8 brick out of this thing. iam always a solo mechanic. but iam lacking the garage and time to do this one alone.
i loosened everything up under the car sans for 2 bolts to hold the tranny up. ds was taken off as well as some powersteer fluid drained.
"let my sc go"
a novel idea
using for rollers z32 front and g35s in the rear(this car will fit any 5x114 wheel it seems like).
got the radiator out. still not understanding this hydrolic fan crap yet. i have to sit down when i get some time and look it over.
started to pull the engine out but had to stop a lot to get to those bolts and fasteners behind the damn engine. and that harness.. oh that ****ing harness..
they do work hard(mexicans) but the illegals shoult still go home(this one is legal)
and again that ****ing harness.
so much harness
those "crafty-**********s" at toyota were clever the engine harness is pretty much wrapped around the engine in really hard to reach nooks and crannies.
had to cut a few wires and a few tabs are broken.
but for the most part i think i saved almost all of the engine. harness,you want as little as much cuts as possible because the harness fab person or company will charge extra for missing **** they need.
i also think i got away because this a v8 one and most of the **** i won't need anyway for my swap.
wow that **** was heavy. don't know wtf kind of alum they used but heavy like a iron block.
and really really really ****ty oem mounts toyota makes i see.
so all in all took 3 hrs(not bad) this was my 2nd 1uz ive pulled so wooo. big difference without engine car is lighter(duh) but how lighter is the question??
cleaned up the engine bay a little. going to do more before the motor set comes. as pull the harness out of the car and what not.
and after one more push and heave, this is how it sits now..
