Don't need all anti-freeze. 50/50 with water runs cooler IIRC.

Glad to see you stayed with the Toy t-case.

I was thinking about it but then i need go back and change it in the winter.

Toyota gear drive is the only way to go. And it was easy for setting up drivshafts and the speedo cable just hooks right back up.

No it dont run yet. I been working more then normally and then i havnt had power the last two days, so i havnt got any thing done since thursday.

Going to pick up the trans tomorrow. Input shaft was bad. So had to also have that replaced. He said it was going to be about 200 for parts and labor when i talked to him today. Thats for swapping out output shafts, and for a new input shaft and install.

Should get the trans in tomorrow and every thing going. Should be running tomorrow night, And driving tomorrow night hopfully. Thats my goal.

Alright, i hate my truck now. Nothing is going my way. Should have been done a long time ago.

I spent a ton of time and effort building motor mounts to go from the ones that downey sent me. Ended up cutting up the downey mounts. Got the motor in just right and every thing were i wanted it. Took about 3 full sun up till sun down days to make ever thing and get it in. About 3 or 4 days later i get the other half of the motor mount in the mail that i did not know even existed. Very mad but was still going to use the mounts i made. Went to put the trans in last night and it hits the floor boards of my truck. So i got out the hammer and took a few swings. Still didnt fit so i called it a night. Went out today to put it and in and theres now way it was going to fit. Every thing sat way to high.

So now i had to put in the mounts that came late. Go to bolt those in and now the motor is not level and sit's way to far forward, cuz i cut the main mounts to fit the mounts i made.
So now i have to order new mounts. Nothing is going my way. If the mounts would have came at the same time my truck would have been on the road weeks ago cuz none of this would have happened.

On a good note i think that my stock length drive shafts will work with every thing. Also my mom fells bad for me so she said that she would pay for half of the cost of the motor mounts.

So thats the update. Just have to order the mounts and when there here it should be done that day or the next. Just have to figure how to set up my new distrubator. Doesnt really say how how in the instrutions.

You need to use the cut off wheel instead of the hammer, 3-4 cuts and anything fits. At least thats what i did with my lifted drive line.

Thanks. Thats what im doing now, sitting back. Cant do much any way right now.

Just ordered my mounts. $120 also orderd another 2 1/2in exhaust U bend for after the muffler. $150 after handling.

Just added up all my orders from just summit and it came to $2644.07

Afraid to go add up all the others.

What ever, did it the way i want the first time around(almost, never enough hp:tonka: ).

Now im mad, just remembered what i forgot to order. Needed to order 2 1/2 collecter's, cuz i have 2 1/4 now. What ever, they'll work.

And i found some pictures of the motor when i first got it. Just have to upload them and ill put it up. Thats just say its came a long way.:tonka:

I'm sure everyone will agree when i say this.... never add up the $$$$ you have spent on your truck/jeep... it'll drive you crazy!

Yea you never can get enough HP. Problem is when you build more power and torque, you start to break things. So than it becomes more expensive to fix the weak links. But i love it

O so true. Already have the axles all planned out, thats the next big project.
Front-Longfeilds and shafts, high pinion 5.29's, e-z locker, fully trussed end to end.
Rear- chromley shafts, disks brakes, Fully trussed, toyota trd locker 3rd member 5.29s.
Then stronger drive shafts and joints.
Always some thing more.

What advanced auto do you work at in Livonia. Friend of mine lives out there not to far from the westland mall. Might have to come stop by there when i have it up and going.

No it is not done yet.
Every thing is in. Motor, trans and case. Final mount. New mounts worked. Just clears the raditor, and hood kinda close's,Just have to push it down hard:tonka: Hits the wing nut just bearly.
Also got my shifter all hooked up. Got all the new brake lines run on the rear axle. Just have to bleed the brakes now.

Having problems with the starter, so im going to go exchange that today. Did get the starter all wired though, just need the starter to back it up.

Have to go get some metal to make the transfer case cross member.

Have the exhaust all layed out for the most part. Just have to figure out were i want to route the y pipe. Yes single exhaust. 2.5in into 3in. Either under the trans pan or all the way back behind the transfer case and over.

Have to put the distributer in, hook up the wires. Then set the valve's. Put the other 4 plugs in, then the driver side header. Hook up the rest of my trans lock up kit. Weld up the exhaust, and top off the fuilds. And put the driveshaft in. Stock lenght works luckly. Think that brings every thing up to date.And then it will be done for the most part.

Should be done real soon
