    A little off the front, and a little off the rear to get it to sit down. But will need to trim the vertical sides to try and match the cruvature to the roof a little better. Has about a 1/2" gap in the middle portion, but my saggin liner fills it in pretty well. Lol.

    The flaggin' waggon

    Figured I'd do the cool thing and shortin the shifter. Cut about 5" off and welded a bolt to it to accept a couple different knobs I had sittin in a couple s10's. Can't decide which one I like better.
    Black ball knob I got out of my project blazer.

    Or a "T" handle from a b&w slap shifter I got from one of my wrecked 1st gens.



    I like the feel of the "T" handle so I think I'm gonna run it for now, but I think I like the look of the ball better.. idk. Lol. Both are better than stock though. That's for sure.

    Finally got another trip today. Nebraska changed the law with any oversized load over 100' long needing a follow escort. So that took a pretty big hit with the whole flaggin gig.
    Went out to Altoona Iowa out by demoine. Actually got a chance to use the height poll. Worked worked out pretty good. No flats or anything on the trailer. Got about right at 40mpg leadin the way over there. A/c about half the time..

    Well, in case you haven't heard the wagon locked up on me. Had a babysitter for the young one so we decided to go on a "date" out autox'n. We made it about 3/4 of the first run when she decided to just stop. Was still a good time an everything. Watched zombie do his runs. Can't wait to go again an hopefully finish. Lol.




    So far I've pulled the valve cover an pan. I've found the #3 rod bearing to be stuck to the crank. There were no shavings in the oil or anything like that. Not sure what I did wrong. I'm goin with it just bein wore. Gonna pull the head too sometime an see what it's like in there.



    Heres the car I'm pulling my replacement from. It's an 02. Gonna keep it a single cam. At least for now.



    This is where I'm at now. Ready to go back in the wagon. Changed out my fuel rail an injectors to accommodate the return fuel system. Also switched out the ects since it was new. Had to change the knock sensor as they were different. The only thing I can visually see different are the exhaust ports. They are quite a bit smaller, and have extra holes underneath them for that air injection setup that I won't be using. Should work ok I think.


    Was able to keep the whole ac system together so I won't need to mess with that anyway.

    I pull the harmonic balancer off, pop the axles out and remove engine/trans as a unit. Removing the main pulley and bolt give just enough room to negotiate everything out the top. Can pull one in about 45 minutes if the AC and PS are gone. Hour tops with accessories.

    That's pretty much how I did it with the exception of mountin the motor up before tryin to line the two together. Thinkin about it now that surely woulda made it easier gettin it in the hole.

    It's probably not, but that just sounds like a pita from reading it. Doing it is probably a different story. I did put it back in without the idler,tensioner, and alt an that did help with lowering it in, but was havein a hard time getting the trans shaft to go in the clutch and the dowels. Think if I woulda mounted the one side of the motor to the car like zombie was sayin it probably woulda saved me a couple cuss words. Lol



    Anyway, engines in car, finished hooking everything up last night. Went an got oil today. An got her started. Fired up good. A little noisier, but I emagine it'll calm down some after it gets some more run time.

    Think I'm gonna regret usin that 3rd gen clutch. I used it cause it looked to be in better shape. Didn't realize they changed the tension on the clutch feel till now. Almost thought somethin wasn't right at first.lol

    I'm glad you got it running relatively quickly.

    I'm not sure if the 3g clutch is ok with the 2g hydros.

    I wasn't sure either. Read some say they've put a 2nd gen clutch with 3rd gen hydro's with no problem. Others said they just switched them both out the first go around. But it seems like, if anyone changes them they change out their 3rd gens to the 2nd gen clutch to get rid of the soft funky feel..

    It seems to work fine. Let's out right at the same spot as before. It's just really soft to push the pedal in. Which apearently. Is the way they are. Got about 4 miles on it now, Codes cleared themselves, no overheating and appears to be no leaks.. parked it over a dry spot to leave it overnight, an I'll see in the morning. But all seems well so far.

    Happy to say, after about 90 miles today, no leaks, no overheat, clutch works ok. Feels weird, but works good. Runs pretty much the same. Maybe a little smoother, an a little less power down low. Overall I'm happy to be back in action, ready for work. Didn't miss nothin while it was down.

    Think I'm gonna run the next autox event with my gold one. Was gonna sell it, but think I'm gonna license it an make it a "race car" to have fun with.

    Absolutely love how easy these things are to work on.

    Made the trip back out to Altoona again today. Got to use my pole again. Car did well. Only got 38.6 on the way there. But that's with the a/c cranked the whole time and through all them hills out by demoine.




    Hit 7's on the way, lol


    Apearently where we're dropping off is right next to the Facebook computer. It's way in the background in that huge ass building.(shitty pic). I was told they are working on another one here at the site.

    Dad bought a pt cruiser. Motor Ends up bein shot, so I fabbed the seats into the wagon. Drivers side is a little tight, but works fine. Still gonna wire up the heated seat feature.
    Turned out pretty nice.

    Stock seat vs. cruiser seat


    Cut "inner rails" here to get outer rails off.


    One rail cut. One yet to be


    Bolted in place for test fit.


    Fitting.


    Bye lumbar


    Trimming


    Seat belt latch not long enough


    But this one looks close


    Trim it.


    Yay


    Tack them, measure them, weld them.


    Bolt in the rear


    Bolt in the front


    Lookin good. Couldn't keep the center console, but gained an arm rest. So I guess it evens it out.

    Was a good day.
    Was able to test the seats out on a 375 mile round trip to the South Dakota line. Work pretty good. No back ache or anything like that when I got back.

    Had a nice tail wind an was cool enough that I didn't need ac. Filled up before we left.
    Went 256 miles to 4.9 gallons of gas for an impressive 52.2 mpg's! Beat my all time high of 46 with it out to north platte.

    Had a trip around north platte (ounce again) couple days back, still the usual. Got 42 to the gallon. The drivers top hat on the strut started squeekin when I turn the wheel. Guess I shoulda packed it with more grease when I put it together.


    I've got a total of 2 trips this last month. Shits slow ever since Nebraska changed that stupid law. Startin to contemplate gettin a real job, cause this crap is barely gettin by.

    But I just did get informed that I get to do a 500 mile job out to Casper wy here on Tuesday, so I'll see how that goes. But really kinda fed up with these stupid games these other drivers are playin. Always seems I'm the only one without a job..

    On another note. Me an the family are headed down too Oberlin ks (bout 210 miles) to go to a "get together" for one of there little ones birthdays. Takin both the wagons. Should be fun. Curious to what the twin cam mp2 will do on mileage compared to my white one.

    Should of got an extra cb.. lol. Then we coulda talked to each other on the way. Lol
