motor is in..look out wasaga!!!

well today i finally rented a hoist,the cruise is comin up soon and ive been being lazy about getting the motor in..its a beautiful day and things went great..pulled the old block and had the motor in and mounted in a record 1hr i couldnt believe how easy it was to get the shaft lined up and get the motor to sit right.i remember johnhubbets 325,three of us wrestled with it for over 2 hrs just to get it to sit i just have to hook up the exhaust manifols and cut the firewall hole for the comp plug a little bigger to fit the newer harness though...lookin forward to seeing you all at wasaga!!!

gf was a big help,she wouldnt help out because it was too dirty so she took a few pics instead..had to do it all myself..
the fan will be converted to an electric after wasaga,and i pulled off the power steering pump and the ac..she should be able to spin pretty freely..and once i get the nos hooked up..that'll be good enough for me..



making fittings for the steering box


gettin everything outta the way..sucks breaking stuff


from pullin out the old one to getting the new one in and fully mounted 1 hr..is that a new record???



well im fallin into a case of beer for the rest of the day..maybe i'll have it running tommorrow..

damn felix that was fast, im pretty sure that must be a record, even if someone could it do faster it would have to be in a shop, no way they can do it on the driveway like u man.

Good job, can't wait to see it.

Impressive. I've just met a poor dude today in downtown who owns an 78 325is with over 300K kms and he was getting his engine replaced with a 150K one at BMW Missisauga for $4500 labour included. I was going to hit the guy in the head for such amount of money for a car like this.

So you are better off.

PS: Felix what did you with the trammy you got from Zimmie?

II felt so bad. I gave him all the contact info's that I had in my car(ie used part dealers, ,mechanics etc.)

And the guy keeps sayin he paid $200 for trunk lock cylinder and etc, I told him just STFU since it made me so sad.

BTW: his car was an 88 325 is. Made a typo there.
