The engine is in!

Here's a short clip.  I need to edit the other videos into one short one because it took about an hour of moving things around to get where we had it bolted in.

8V71 Engine Install in a GM PD4106


Things left to do:

Clutch rod
Shifter rods
Install Power Steering Pump
Hook up all coolant hoses and lines and then fill and bleed system
Hook up all air lines
Change tranny fluid and filter
Hook up all the electrical wires

One minor issue.  Look how the heater hose pipe do not line up.  I had to position the angle of the pipe to prevent the coolant temp oil control valve for the fan drive to prevent it from hitting the engine cradle.  I was close to wearing a hole in that oil hose on the old engine because it rubbed. 



I'm going to loop the heater hose to make it work.

I need to have this thing rolling by Thursday night, but only have two night available to work on it!!

More pictures later

Chopper Scott,
Always pick your helpers carefully!  BTW, over 22 years ago she and I completely rebuilt and modified her MG Midget engine when we were in high school.  Crane Cam, Weber down draft, short skirt pistons, balanced, etc.  I'll bet that 1275cc engine was making 90 hp!  She's a pretty good wrench.
