New engine started at ones. No leaks, no problems. Got an engine with 91k for $1100 from my local Autojunk.
It took me three full days to change the engine, and I worked alone. I used cutting tools to cut the exhaust bolts and drill new holes. Also I used Impact pneumatic tools, due the nuts and bolts were extremely tight.
Advice, save the antifreeze and trasnmission fluids and reuse them. After you have checked that everything is running well for at least a week, just replace them for new ones.
Please if you need any help, do not exitate to ask.

And the most important thing is to remove the engine slow and careful, so you do not break anything, and never never force the engine to come out. It came out easy and slow.

Great job. I see photos are uploaded in photobucket. Unfortunately links will be lost when you move the photo's or rename them in photobucket. It would be great if you could upload them to this site instead so they will permanently stay here.
