Thank you, Uncle Sam, for the Stimulus Check!
It's given me what I need to start this again!

I'm not even going to bother with the old engine, I am getting a complete new one, and a new turbo (K14 (stock) this time! No more messing with ill fitting parts!)!

I've got a four-week wait for the motor to get here. I've just about got all of my seals and sauces and turbos and cornbread, so it's now a matter of organizing the transport to the shop!

After the old motor comes out, and the work is done, I plan on shipping the old motor back to the builder and just get it the F*CK out of my life!
NO autopsy!

Wish me luck!

I may be inviting trouble, but I'm getting a 0km rebuild from the same company.

So, I posted this in another thread, but I would like to mount an EGT sensor and gauge, but need to find one.
Also, Gnarlodious, could you remind me of the larger exhaust set-up you did? I think I might try that out, too.

So, here I am, at the workshop again.
Pulling the engine out, again.
Kinda disheartening to see gear oil coming out of the CV joint...

Why do you need to pull the engine for gear oil in the CV? Isn't that usually due to the CV flange seal at the transmission?

Gear oil out of the cv joint is likely the half dollar size cap has fallen out of position in the drive flange. I will smear a film of silicone around the outer edge once installed to help retain it. It can be knocked loose installing a cv shaft.

The output shaft is supposed to have a seal the prevents oil from coming out. I myself have had a chronic problem with oil leaking out the driver’s side output shaft into the CV boot. Even after replacing the seal it still leaks...

Many times that seal does not work very well on its own. Did you add any RTV?

Yup, that little seal was loose.

Motor is out for changing. After dinner I will update the thread with pictures 😃!

Okey-Dokey Folks!
I'm happy to report, it was a good day of wrenching!

Wait, back up....

On Saturday, I got a trailer, and moved Frank to the workshop.

And from there I dropped the engine and trans together (to save time).

This is the Turbo. Nice and clean. 7,000 kilometers old.
(Oh, by the way, the van has been sitting in my driveway since I last wrote about him. 7ish months ago, or so. I haven't cleaned anything first.)


Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


Air Plenum, oil soaked. I haven't opened it up yet. That's tomorrow!


Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


Oil on the bell housing, but not the oil pan. I pulled the plug, but it was dry.


Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


As promised, a CV leaking gear oil.


Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


Yup, the little cap was loose. I tapped it back in with a socket and hammer. I'll give it a smear with RTV tomorrow.


Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Now here's a funny thing....
This is the bolt hole for the turbo bracket. The one I thought was sealed. (I used the wrong bolt the first time, broke it. It dripped. To my surprise, when the first motor was sent back for the roasted bearings, I got the same block back, with this repair.)

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


This is curious. My air ducting is (was\ should be) complete and assembled, so I'm not sure how this got flooded. Really, I wasn't planning on replacing the air filter. It's still new. It's soaked. Trip through the sandblaster, paint, find the next fault, Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


And here it is, four and a half hours later, out.

Tomorrow I will split the trans and motor and start pulling stuff off. I've got a bunch of new stuff, like the oil pump and Turbo, as well.

I'll take more pictures.

Oh, and I also got some lighting upgrades.
I've got a question for the ones who have done the LED upgrade....

Where did you get a mounting ring for the lights?

It fits just fine, but a little loose.....

The H4 bulbs have the tabs mounted to itself. Can't get those off.....

It sounded like you already swapped the engine and then found the gear oil leaking. I’d reseal the trans while you have the engine out.

I made some temp ones until I got the proper rings. Funny thing about temp fixes and how they end up permanent.
