    Re: 1984 Coupe DeVille Engine Swap!

    Hey guys! You wanted pictures? I got pictures!
    (And Craig, I got my Oldsmobilin' under control, just for today. )

    I had some time to work on the Cad today, so I took advantage of it.

    First of all, the engine mount bolts, while in, weren't tight. I took care of that. I couldn't use the factory bolts because they weren't long enough for the newly re-done mounts.



    My engine FINALLY sits level! Aside from the paint scheme, it almost looks factory.


    After hooking up the electrical connector and the speedometer cable to the transmission, I dragged my driveshaft out of the garage for re-installation.


    Before I removed the driveshaft originally, I took an orange colored pencil and marked the driveshaft and the yoke on the axel so I knew which way to put it back in. Both marks survived the wait, and everything lined up like it should have.


    Finally, I got in the car and put it in park. I've been able to do this for some time because the trans has been hooked up. With the driveshaft in there, it actually does something now.


    That's all for today!

    ^As soon as I get the thing wired and plumbed! Which may be as soon as next week. Is it weird that I have more time for the car DURING the school year?

    Ha ha ha, certainly not. The hood was just out the shot. I set it over the engine bay when not working on it.
