Almost ready to run! So Matt got some more work done. He buttoned up the engine bay, Hooked up the gas lines, brake lines. He hit a little snag getting the fuel pump to turn on. But after swapping the fuse box under the hood, he got it working. I did had to help him diagnose the problem. Just too bad the timing belt cover is missing. So if anyone has an extra one they would like to part with please contact us. I think the next time he works on the car it will be ready to start. Hopefully no issues comes up. Once the car is running Matt plans on doing body work and getting it ready for paint. But at the same time school just started and I think we need to find a shop space to be able to do more work since winter is just around the corner.
So after many days of just enjoying the summer break, and vacationing with the family. The Kid finally got some time to work on his AE86. I helped him pull the motor swap out of the donor car, so I don't have much (actually I didn't take any pictures from that). He spent most of the day cleaning and getting the engine bay ready for the swap. Swap over clutch lines and slave cylinder. SR5 is on the left side, while GTS is on the right side. He also swapped over the throttle cables, and fuel tank and fuel lines. We decided to drop the motor in the way it is and not do any mentainance or even cleaning for that matter. The swap was running good, and we will be doing work on the motor later on. For now we just want it running.
