Finally ordered what I think should be the last part i need to install the motor. The intake manifold has been my enemy. I didn't want to spend over 400 bucks on a factory plastic molded intake manifold. They have very little aftermarket support and the factory one in my car is full of piston pieces I can't get out. I finally bit the bullet and ordered one that was about 350 bucks. Now to put the thing together. I am making my brother come out from Arizona to help me since he helped take it out and knows where most the bolts go. So hopefully when I get back from Idaho in a couple weeks I will find the time to put it together. Of course if my house sells quickly I might just have to pack it all up and do it later.


Next question is, do I keep the original motor and build it someday or scrap it and forget about it?

Yes and no. If I needed a motor yes but I don't. It would need to be bored and then have the heads done or buy new. Could build a motor just like the one I bought if you wanted to. It still ran when pulled but it has a little scoring on one cylinder and one head has marks from the piston busting apart but it looks all cosmetic.

Well, just put this project on the back burner for a bit. I was going to try and get the motor in before I moved but decided I don't want to rush it and there is a bunch of little stuff I want to do to the car and the motor before install so I will pack it all up and move it to idaho. Put both motors in the bed of my golf cart last night and drove that into my enclosed trailer. Thinking of making a trip up there next week.
