So I found a 2.3 w/ ALL ACCESORIES and 62K miles on it for $550. Trying to get it procured and hopefully if things go right for once, I can drop her in and get her running again!!!!!

Hey.... He will hold the engine for you... you just have to talk to him and work something out...

He was telling me all about it but since you didn't answer your text message figured I would tell you here...

I am almost completely done unbolting the engine from the Tranny. I have the 3 or 4 bolts for the Torque Converter to do and the ground wire on the engine. I can then bolt the old Head back on with the engine hoist bracket and I can hoist her out of there.

I got the new engine today. It only has the Alternator on it so I am going to be putting my accessories on her, along with the following:

Timing Belt
Timing Belt Tensioner
Water pump
Thermostat
Upper / Lower Radiator Hoses
Spark Plugs
Spark Plug Wires
BOTH coil packs since the other is missin one
the oil filter (Puralator Micro filter) since it is brand new; never run
The Complete Intake manifold
All Upper gaskets, including head gasket.

I will try my best to get you guys some pics here.
