Yea the engine looks a million times cleaner than mine. I found a bunch of walnuts underneath my plenum by the injectors lol. I did notice it looks like there was white paint in the t-stat housing? Whats amazing to me is that he just clipped the harness and hoses and left it as is. It even had plug wires and a coil on it? Not sure how he got it out of the truck - must not have had a tranny.

Dropped the pan last night, cleaned it up today along with oil pickup and resealed it back up with some right stuff gasket maker. Made sure to tighten the crankshaft bolt down real good. Got all the stupid hell housing bolts that are damn near impossible to get. and I think I am ready to start hooking stuff back up. I'm waiting for a new set of Jaguard v12 motor mounts to show up before it's set in properly though. Hopefully they get here soon ordered from Rockauto part # JLM1010.

Here is where we stand Very Happy

Got sick of waiting for new mounts to come in so will swap those later. Made quite a bit of progress today.

Just need to.... (my list for my own reference before I forget)
finish putting Y pipe on
attach air box
fill with oil and coolant
tighten down fan clutch and engine mounts
tighten down ground for starter and put heat shield back on
put fuel pump fuse back in
plugs and wires and then start her up and drive away!

Well, a new engine, alternator, power steering pump, fan and clutch, and random seals/gaskets and....

SHE IS RUNNING AGAIN! Hoping my new engine mounts come tomorrow so I can get those in and put the heat shields back on and take her for a good drive.
