It's good to see that you got the motor in. It practically looks like it could have rolled off the line like that. Great job and here is another vote for video.
Thanks. I replaced the poly trans mount yesterday with an OEM "w/HD package" one....much better...for some reason, this car has alot of vibration with that poly trans mount (I also have the aluminum K frame isolaters), same as with the old motor, trans and converter. Now I just gotta get the linkage adjusted right for shifts and kick down. I can't manually pull it down to 1st gear, and I have to push up hard on the column shifter to get the key out of the ignition....just needs a little adjustment. Even with just 2.94 gears, it wants to light up the tires, even on a rolling start. I have to change the thermostat. I forgot the engine came with one (it was packaged at the bottom of the crate), so I bought a 180 degree one. After I had already bought it, I discovered the 195 degree one that came with motor. The temp gauge barely moves up after driving for a long time. It is definetly not reaching optimal operating temp. It is starting to get fun now that everything is in, and nothing leaks!!
