Ok so i installed the driver side axle with no problems,
but when i went to put the passenger side axle in the bracket on the back of the 3s to hold the mid joint on the axle does not line up. no biggie so i go snatch the bracket off of my old 5sfe... but no dice. it wont bolt to the back of the 3s.

am i missing something.? please help me out on how you have all gotten this part of the swap to work

thanks!
Jesse

yes, you have to remove that one manifold support. its one of those small swap things most people forget to mention. also, make sure you put some locktite on those bolts and torque them to spec. i had one of mine come loose and fall out. then later since it was only holding onto one bolt, it broke that bolt. it was a mess to try to fix.

I would recommend you do them both now while your already down there. I leak later means more time spent since it will probably leak at an inconvenient time.
