Loading up.



Only got it about 10 feet in the yard before nearly having a heatstroke. Need to acquire some more wood as well, or I'll never get it to the back.

Damn thing is heavier then I remember.

One step at a time. Looks like poo atm, but I see a diamond that just needs some polished.

Lol yea, I got the transmission off this morning after quitting when it got dark last night.

Just put my engine stand together, and need to run to the store to get bolts long enough to bolt it into the block because the trannie bolts are not long enough.

not really sure of the threads, so its going to be a couple different size purchases.

ah yes the bolts. I ran into the same problem lol. Try Ace hardware if there's one local to you, they always have everything I need. How was the transmission removal for you? Because I had a rough time due to a hidden bolt behind the center diff haha

Hmm, wondering if there is an Ace around here, havn't been to one of those since I lived in PA, and was quite some time ago. Will check though, thanks!

Yea I know exactly which bolt you are talking about, 14mm head, hidden under there. No enough clearance for a socket, so had to wrench it out, 1/2 inch turns each time in 99+ temps. People around probally heard a large percentage of my vulgarities.

It was a PITA to get her off, took me a good 1 1/2 hours once I took the rear brackets off. It was mainly because I trying not to wreck the spline, so finding the right angle and just finally muscling it off. She is heavy!

Win!

Felt a little bad for the shop owner, you could tell the big box has hurt business, as the shelves were barely stocked, and he had what I needed whereas home depot did not...I shall try to bring as much business as i can his way.

He knew his stuff too, once i said it was for an engine stand. He said "must be a Jap engine" lol.

Want to update you folks, but these flywheel bolts are going to be the end of me.

I've wedged the flywheel to stop it from moving, but it appears I'm going to need one hell of a steel pipe to add some leverage to break these loose.

Taken a flywheel off or two, but never had this much issue. They aren't reverse threaded are they? Just curious before I start cranking on them.

I bet! I have a nice compressor, but it got knocked over and busted the valve. In the process of sourcing a replacement.

This did the trick for now.



Yes that is a closet pole to hang clothing on =P



Got this far before I got tired of being soaked (Working in the rain =/ tired of excuses ) and donating blood to the flying blood suckers.

Noob question of the week, does that look like the got the angles okay for the stand mount before I tighten it up? figured best to ask, then have it fall over and be pissed I didn't take a second to make sure.

I know some of these updates may seem pointless and mundane, but each step for me is quite the exp. and learning as I go. So stick with me, the interesting shiz will come soon enough.

Was quite interesting getting over that step.



Finally got her where I needed it, so I have light to work on it, and a covered area. Time to buckle down and get it torn apart read to accept new parts..

Yeah dude, getting the AWD tranny off while on the hoist and then getting the motor away from the tranny onto the stand is a fukking process, haha. Damn hoist legs don't "spread" enough, lol.

My buddy has a snap on battery powered impact wrench that got my flywheels bolts off in an accumulated like 30 seconds! Such a handy tool..

Looking good man, keep it up!

Got a little work done on the 3s. Just tearing things off. Not much due to camping but I'm sure I'll get a bit more done over the week.



Anyone know if the distributor cap is interchangeable from one from a MR2 3s? Mine was a bit worn and busted when I was taking the ignitor coil off. Will need the wire tool. I believe they are, just making sure before I purchase.

Well, got the OEM downpipe off, and a few other tidbits.

Went to the other side to take the crankpully off, so I can remove the lower cover. No dice.

have a universal pulley holder on the way to assist with its removal. Should be here Wednesday. 52 smackers.
