I have my next weekend set to do this. Hopefully I will have all the parts by then.

picked all this today for $45 (excluding turbo and downpipe) included in the deal were powder coated IC pipes - I don't know how I feel about them yet
Not sure if i got the right - closest to turbo - IC pipe ?


Also started to strip old paint from the block

Nice deal half off day at the JY? Too bad they snag all the cats by any means necessary, I eventually lucked out and found a 940 with a straight pipe exhaust system, that's the only way I could find a non-mangled downpipe. d

Looks like the IC piping from a 740 with the Peirburg.

ohhhh, I skipped the part where you said there turbo wasn't included in that price. That's pretty reasonable.

Stripped and painted the block
I used "Easy-Off" over cleaner to prep the block.
Spray on and let sit for 30min. Come back with pressure washer and wash everything off - make sure not to get water into the block( I had the engine upside down)
Dry off with leaf blower
Repeat.
Go over rust spots with wire brush.
Spray everything down with brake cleaner.
Paint

Before paint



After paint - I used way too much on driver side - ohh well

primer included.
I need to get things ready for a smooth swap over (very wishful thinking)
Starting Friday I have 3 days to get it all done, otherwise it screws up my wife's work schedule.

I don't need to

yesterday I removed the oil pan for painting.
found a broken crankshaft main cap bolt and what seems to be a broken chain link
engine must have been built on a Monday after a 3 day weekend- buy no damage anywhere


today I got my eBay turbo rebuilt kit so I cleaned it and replaced parts. Turbo's original brass bushings all looked good but there was just a lot of carbon buildup.






turbo before


turbo after cleaning


old brass and finished turbo

I stripped the block and pan again but this time used Duplicolor engine paint.

This morning Im here - went inside because it's hot

Good call on the duplicolor engine paint, the clear coat for the engine paint really helps the resilience to chemicals btw, if you haven't done that already.

too late :( - although clear tends to turn yellow

Yesterday I feel a little behind schedule after swapping over bunch of little things to the new block and going to the JY for a timing belt cover (b21-b230 are different)

This morning I got the engine and trans mounted up
went together like magic on the first try



turns out I also been panning for gold with the old engine


I made my own clutch alignment tool - I cant find my old one


and a hybrid b21 to b230 head rear timing belt cover to get the timing marks

no crushing just yet

It's all the little thing that keep slowing me down.
- trim coolant hoses
- fabricate turbo oil drain - (b230 drain is longer than needed for a b21ft block)
- thunderstorm rolled in while I was working
- install correct hard lines for turbo - even though this one came off a b21ft it was jerry-rigged at best

I still need to
-set timing
-fabricate exhaust

Got it running and driving but only with an open donwpipe (modified 940)
way way too loud.

I still need
- sort out a couple of vacuum hoses
- solder in a ground for AMM
- install early windshield washer reservoir in passenger butt cheek
- get a BOOST gauge
- get a proper filter - not some $3 JY special
- finish installing exhaust

You need these...




I had the ends for a TD04 turbo, welded to my B21FT oil lines...for a direct-fit, bolt in solution, that's as good as factory.

I spent most of my day rolling around in the dirt fabricating the exhaust from 4 different setups
Catback is IPD sport pipes with ANZA muffler

I still need to sort out some hangers - currently hangers and bailing wire in few spots

Modified downpipe
