    I am pulling the 3fe/a440 from my clean 62 and installing the 3b/h42 from my RUSTY bj along with a Garrett/Mercedes t3 turbocharger.

    I am building a dedicated family daily driver.

    Sweet 62. Better bulldog - she looks happy.

    Is there a 5 speed in that 60 that's going to be taking up space?

    How do the steps mount? Would you be willing to part with them? I could use some for the moment.

    You gotta get a set of "Gear Wrenches"

    Dont get the imitations..... they don't work so well.

    I am able to cut work time with these tools.

    Although I have never broken one,

    Sears, Napa or Lowes will warranty them if needed.

    I have a few flex ends, stubbies and most popular metric sizes for my cruiser.

    I learned today to unbolt the converter BEFORE dropping the trans.

    I damaged it while removing the transmission. (see pic)

    more pics from today

    I used a 2x4 between the front springs to support the rear of the engine.

    I also stuffed a cinder block and some 2x4 chunks under the pan

    Nothing fancy here

    I gained about 1" of lift when I removed it today.

    Note hose job on parking area... gotta keep it clean


    The 3fe is ready to be picked.


    here is the donor diesel from my 60 sans turbo

    I am NOT going to install the draw tie from the 60 on the 62.

    It is too rusty.

    note "lcr4wd" decal - thanks Steve for your dedication to the site
