Having dragged the lump out of the donor
we now get to fit it into the 2B chassis. This time we take
the sensible option and borrow an engine hoist...
Fitting the engine looks straightforward. We chose not
to fit the front suspension and wheels, more because of
timing (i.e. we only had the hoist for the weekend) than
any sound engineering principles.
|Installing the Engine
|Well for a start you need to remove
the passenger side engine mounting arm to actually get
the engine into the chassis and transfer the rubber
engine mounts from the donor to the 2B chassis, oh yeah
and take off the fan. We decided that as the engine
had been running well that we shouldn't mess about with
it too much, obviously now is the time to fix any stuff
that you know is wrong, but we'll just cross our fingers.
