Trans mount. I could not access the upper nut (#4). There were some bolts on the bracket (#5), but the one I pulled was quite long and I was afraid to go further out of concern that I might separate the case or something.

Don't worry be happy it's just 2 bolts go ahead and pull it after you support the transmission.

Sweet. Hopefully it doesn't dump my Redline goodness on the ground.

Speaking of that, the trans is shifting progressively better. No longer prolonged grinds into reverse and first on a cold start. Still not a "fast" shifter, but hey. Looking forward to swapping in the metal shifter bushings.

Did you try adjusting the 1st / reverse shift gate?

I just adjusted that on my car, and I have to say it feels 10000x better for it.

Lift the shift boot up loosen both sides with an 8mm socket a little then, move gate back 1mm then do the same to other end, and resnug both.

Repeat till 1st 2nd & reverse operate smoothly.

^Maybe replace the hooped shift bushings while you're at it?

As long as you are suffering with that miserable boot have fun with the likely rubbed through reverse lamp wiring and trying to get the boot back in without pulling or ripping the carpet.

Thanks guys! I'll give it a go.

Scored some used lights, a working speedo, a grille and various clips and fasteners today. Slow and steady wins the race...

Hitting the Craigslist and local salvage yards for bits and pieces. Lift gate struts are finally in. Found this sweet hitch plug and some clean trim panels and wiper arms (with the plastic covers intact). Also the radiator support grommet for the air intake and a front bumper extension post, etc. Got stuck in traffic for an hour with no overheat. Yeah!

Is there any benefit to running a "torque strap" (cable) from the top of the engine to an anchor someplace? For the modest power, these engines do move around a bit.

How is the spare tire anchored? I found a rubber strap with two hooks in the salvage yard, but I'm not sure if it's for the spare.

Yup that's it. Hooks into little slots in the metal.

I've never taken a picture of my trunk haha, also it's probably quite a bit different in wagons, never needed to access my spare in either wagon I had.

Edit: Mayyybe this'll work

There's a rectangular cut out low in the pinch weld up front, and another in the back inner panel up high.

Well, I'm embarrassed to show my dirty car next to your pristine car, but here goes:


I am 90% on the lower anchor point.










Not so sure on the upper. I did find this cut out in the fender pinch weld. The only discrepancy is that the band is slack in that position. If this is the correct location, an adjustment of the band would be simple enough.







To get the band snug, I've got it attached to this rail on the quarter, which doesn't look quite right.

Very cool. I did find this:







Looks like my new (used) jack is supposed to go in there too.

That was my 83 when I cleaned some surface rust, primed and painted the butt cheeks with white appliance epoxy.
