  1. yo Matt!! long time buddy .. nice work here, nice to see some more useful content appearing.   what did ya use to hang the motor?  I've been looking at maybe getting the harbor freight style support beam for when I eventually do the steering rack in my xc90 .. I have a hoist kicking around but I feel the legs/feet will just get in the way when I'm working under the vehicle ... is that your home garage or are you still using the shop?


  2. You can try adding an aftermarket check valve at the fuel filter as an alternative to the bear of a pump replacement job, some have had good luck with that, there are some threads out there about it .. And probably just pull the prop shaft for now, then inspect front and carrier bearings and go from there...

    So, if anyone has a 99 angle gear they’re looking to sell, let me know!


    I do, it's out of the car but still bolted to the engine/trans out in my garage so I'll have to remove to get a good pic of the splines.. was working fine though

    Eh, I don’t want to put  a 99 hydro lifter head on an 04 (originally solid lifter) engine. If anything, I’d grab a dual VVT head to port and install that when the time came. A friend is doing something similar on his wagon this winter, so I’m curious to see how it all turns out 

    Supposedly a whiteblock is about 400 lbs, definitely doable for 2 people. But if I can take the easy/lazy way out, I’m gonna 😂

    accessories and turbo were attached as well ... much easier with a board to slide it up/down on ..  good luck with the swap, I'm sure you'll make short work of it!

    When it came time to unload the engine from the truck I rented, the shop’s lift couldn’t quite go high enough to allow me to drive the truck out so I had to enlist a couple friends to help :laugh: 


    I picked one up one time and hoisted it into my wagon with the guy I bought it from .. with our bare hands. . was surprised that was doable but he was pretty confident about it so I went for it.. lol
