Well did a little more work on the intake.. I knifed edged aswell.. its sharp enough to cut paper now.... instead of being a patato masher.. now I am just going to pollish half the intake.. it is just so much easier and I think it will look good when its completed.. .. still lots more to go.. but im half way there..

Post Re: Kirk95gs - black 95 mx-3
Well after having the motor for almost a year at my parents house I got it up to my new place. It took me 7hrs with a U-haul and about 150$ of gas.. and I was hung-over :throwup: to top it all off..

Post Re: Kirk95gs - black 95 mx-3
I had trouble taking the udp or crank pulley off.. But I got it done with a little work.. :welder:

heres how I did it

I wedged a wrench between two bolts from where the flywheel is held on and butted it againts the bolts
for the engine stand.

Image
Image

Next I used a 1/2" ratchet wrench witha 21mm socket and a noter ragular wrench for leverage..

Image

worked great for not having any air tools.. and being by myslef..

So I replaced the water pump and t/b along with the pulleys and tensioner....Next will be cleaning the oil pan gunk out getting installing the intake, fule rails, and valve covers..
