March 11, 2006Yea...I got it on friday night, at 3:40 pm today I set my goal to get the engine out of its cradle and bolted to the chassis and trans. After a couple hours spent getting a list of stuff together from the store. I got it done with a lot of gritting my teeth and some curse words and what seemed like a million adjustments of the fork lift, I got it positioned to where I could get the motor mounts to line up and then another million adjustments to get the trans to line up. I finally said enough at 9:40 and came home.
My engine builder claims this motor should put out roughly 450 lbs/ft of torque and roughly 400 HP. I hope I at least that for $6,692.
Pics to come once I get the carb installed and everything bolted on. In other words tomorrow...
