Trying direct links in this post...pita... resize...

Got motor installed (again). probably not the last time either.

Filled the torque converter up half way with fluid. This converter is a higher stall than factory (+300 rpm), guessing 1900-2100 rpm instead of 1600-1800. Intent is to get fully into power band to get this heavy pig rolling. Using dex/merc instead of type F.

Remembered to install shield first then flex plate. Nice to install all clean and painted parts.

Installed trans/TC first into chassis then motor and bolted them together. Then I took it back out to remove motor mounts and grease the bushing.
