    So far no real issues so far. Think I'll order some new clutch to flywheel bolts as these have the anti-sieze hardened into the threads. I ran them through a bolt to get the junk off but meh.... not trusting them. The plates have no warpage, they are in spec for all clearances advised by Tilton.


    We are going to look into a small oil leak on the timing belt side, I always see a small drop at the bottom of the timing belt cover. & I got one of these again to make an attempt at the power steering cooling...


    The after math. Sometimes I do with this was all one connection (well.. the wiring to the engine).



    & putting the engine on the stand. Always a huge PITA because the stands collide with each other! Think I seen a youtube video where some guy made one stand higher than the other so they slide over top.

      You are making fast winter project progress!!! I am envious.

      I also hate that the engine stand interferes with the hoist. It is a conundrum.

        Well, because I lost a contract (big job) due to COVID and stuff, so I got time on my hands these days Here's a vid sped up x1000 of me trying to put the engine on the stand...grrrrrrrrr.

          I use an engine stand similar to this:
          https://www.vevor.com/products/engin...RoCjLAQAvD_BwE
          It has given me a scare from time to time when rolling the engine around, by almost tipping. But it fits inside the hoist wheel base. Though I also extend the boom on my hoist to the longest section.

          but your making great process and I envy your space in your garage. I’m assuming it’s a detached garage?

            Lol! I felt that “grrrrrrrrr”. It seems like you did a pretty good job problem solving during the mounting though. I will have to revisit this video the next time I have an engine out situation.

              Hell no, would I use that Mr. Bean engine stand. eeeek. And attached garage. Great size as there's a good 4-5 feet on either side of the car and more in front of the car. No way I was having one of those garages you can't even open the car door, been there before. Here's the vid I was thinking of, Eric the car Guy modified his engine stand to easily allow for them to pass over/under each other. I may try this, but ya.. extending the boom all the way allows for these to hook up.

              Today I tackled a problem someone else caused. Something that can only be fixed with the engine out. Someone stripped two bolt holes for the intermediate axle shaft on the back of the engine block. They tapped the bottom hole to 12mm as they could access it with the car on the lift. But the top left hole you cannot access, just too tight to get a tap/die in there. So today I tapped the top left hole and got a bolt for it. Also had to drill out the hole in the shaft connection part...





              Fixed

                  The battle scars of trying to stuff a dual clutch trans in WITH the engine in :\ Easy to fix things up once the whole bay has been painted now too. Picked up some cans, we'll see how the color match comes out. Blending it in is easy too after primer.







                  For the below pics, I'm cleaning up the passenger side wires in the bay. What you are looking at here is a lazy passenger side wire tuck done back when I was a youngin, and the power wire going to the fuse box + negative wire I ran to the battery a while back. All these wires are going to be moved up through the passenger foot well to the fender vs. entering the bay to get there. In the end the only wires coming through the firewall are the engine harness wires and map sensor wire.








                  Picked up a valve seal removal tool too.

                    Thanks Aasco for sending the bolts. Appear to be 5mm longer than the old but shouldn't be an issue.

                      Also going to do a quick fix on the corner drivers side engine bay area too. Many moons ago when I tried to get the front hood lip to fit I jammed the hood too hard (without adjustments) and "dented" the paint. Just where the underside of the hood lip chipped the paint. Glad to fix this one, been driving me nuts. It was only on one side too. Will wait to buff out some orange peel and it will look great!

                          Took the intake off and surprised to see oil in the intake and also on the intake valves (wipes right off). Obviously bad valve seals I would say....\

                            Good job on the paint repair! It does look like the valve seals are in need of repair.

                              Thanks. Going to do them soon here, still debating if I should remove the head or not. Probably will. Also ordered this thing :P I remember wanting this part 12 years ago. Figured I'd get one while they exist. (kicking myself now for not getting greddy lips, etc.)
