I am finally able to announce that my 3FE engine, transmission and transfer case is gently resting in my 80-series Land Cruiser. Nothing is hooked up yet except for the tranny cross member and engine mounts.
Prior to installing the engine, I ran new extended breather lines for the transfer case and transmission. The old breather line was somewhat brittle, so this was the perfect opportunity to run the new lines.
I still have to clean my air flow meter, hook up the belt driven accessories, vacuum hoses, wiring harness, drive lines and fix the exhaust head pipes that I had to sawzall in two to get the engine out.
It’s getting closer. But now it’s all weather dependent. Damn the storm that’s blowing in for the next four days.
I’m starting to get excited about having my Land Cruiser back.
To be continued.
