G'day all, just following up from my last thread, I seem to have hit yet another hitch or 2 with my project. I've bought and paid for a new engine, but I cannot yet arrange its delivery because I do not have Steven's engine crane. I cannot pick it up because none of my cars would fit it, except the EA which is off the road.
My other complaints
is that time is not on my side and the Laser is starting to become a serious money pit (and don't get me started on the Mazda). I'm trying to track down the remaining parts for a reasonable dollar, and the most important is an AU bellhousing for which I've been quoted $70 at FTG. I might just have to go with it. I don't think I'll be paying $50 for their EA GL garnish though, or $50 each for non-electric EA mirrors
I bought a couple of EA engine mounts today and was charged $240
. See this thread
Anyway, the crane thing is my biggest bother. Working 7 days doesn't help things at all. If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.
