    Sorry. Premature send. A few weeks ago finally got the back of the Jackson cage welded on to convert to a family cage. Also fab'd a harness bar for the kids that is removable. I though it was a pretty cool idea.

    Still gathering parts for my 2FE build. I bought a 2FE plate that replaces the EFI plate on the intake plenum...it was THE critical piece that will tie it all together. :eek:
    I did get the head back from the machine shop and got it and the intake manifold painted this weekend.

    Gary has inspired me to start my rear bumper. I had pics but I deleted them when I re-imaged my phone.

    To be started on a decent Sunday this March:

    Camry axle shaft swap, diff drain/fill, auto transmission pan drop with filter change and fill with new red stuff. If that doesn't fix the slipping tranny then I'll learn all about a do-it-yourself transmission rebuild. Then fix the hole in the exhaust BEFORE the muffler.

    4runner fuel line replacement at the top of the tank. Looks like ill be making my own lines from scratch. Then grind and paint frame and new exhaust back from the cat. Then comes a soft top and custom interior storage quarter panels. The plastic rattling is driving me nuts. Maybe install the winch.

    Cruiser electrical run through and cleaning contacts so parking lights and signals work properly for inspection... then removing the top once the temp stabilizes above 50degrees. Then maybe some bodywork with the welder.

    The 80 is throwing a code 71 (EGR). I imagine I will be ordering a VSV and EGR modulator.

    I think that I will finally be on the hunt for a 3F-E. The 62 failed emissions horribly, and I would guess that the enormous amount of coolant being pumped into the crankcase has something to do with it. So if anyone has any leads, drop me a line.

    Will probably be putting a roll bar in the Miata this spring.

    I have a 3F-E block in the truck at the bottom of my driveway. You can take it and the trans/case and whatever for $100. The block has 148k on it. The head showed no signs of overheating or coolant intrusion as per my discussion with the machinist who did the valve job on the head.
    We just need a cherry picker to get it out.

    Thanks guys. Burl, I think I want a complete engine because I'm a tad leary of the head on mine. Shouldn't be -- I had all the work done it. But having never figured out what is causing the coolant leak makes we want to start afresh.

    Stump, I might have to take you up on your offer. How many miles on the engine? Was it running before?
