Replacement engine


Recommended Posts

Carrying on from my "it nearly lives thread" I thought i would give an update.

I have just spoken to my mechanic (who's have a well deserved extra day off today) and he said he has had one or two problems but the engine is now in the bay.

The minor problems he has had so far has been due to the current engine being from a 97 and the replacement engine being from a 96 (allegedy).

1) The starter motor was different having four wires on the 96 and two on the 97.

2) Fuel pump - Mechanical on the 96 and electronic on the 97

3) Trouble mating the engine to the gear box so swapped the flywheel over.

Hopefully it will be up and running tomorrow afternoon
