you're forgetting that this won't fix the fact that the v-belt doesn't work on a serpentine pulley.

for the crank pulley question......is the motor hooked to the tranny and does the tranny have the axles in? (basically, are all the mechanicals from engine to rolling wheel installed?) if so there is an easy way to break the crank pulley bolt using the car itself as a tool. Turn the wheel all the way to the left (or take the wheel off if it won't clear a rachet plus extension) and access the pulley bolt w/ a long extension (or a few smaller ones in sequence) and a breaker bar (I use 1/2"). The trick is to make sure the wheels are on the ground, the car is in gear, and the parking brake is up. You wrench on the bolt, which would normally spin the engine assembly, except if it is hooked to the tranny and the tranny is in gear, so it's the bolt vs. the weight of the car. If the car is jacked up or all the wheels are off, pushing on the brake to lock the front rotors (I use a cinder block) is the best alternative. Many methods will work so long as the tranny is allowed to take the force out to the hubs/wheels. Hope that helps, Mak

I've swapped 4-5 racks in the last 2-3 months, I've got them down to about 45 min in and out. if you don't have the exhaust and the shift linkage hooked up already, you're 1/3 the way there!

IN short, the axles are not hooked up.

Once again, the engine is out... sigh... at least I'm getting really good at pulling engines :P

I tried removing the crank pulley using the tried and true method, but the AC bracket got in the way. I recently lost my 14mm socket, so I'm off to autozone to get another one.

Does anyone know if they sell crank pulley bolts at autozone? Mine is getting kinda torn up from all of the stress I've been putting on it.

And the engine is back in... Tomorrow I'll reattach all of the hoses, wires, mounts, etc.. and then I'll finally get the belts (AC and PS) attached. As soon as that is done it's in with the axles, the throttle cable, the speedo cable, and the fuel line. In with oil and transmission fluid and then I try to start it up.

After that, of course, I repeat the entire swap because I screwed up something simple at the beginning.

After following this saga, I think I don't think I will be doing an engine swap. Rather, I will just buy the engine that I want with the car already attached up all proper like.

you could just swap the cx tranny, you don't have to do an engine swap, you're already getting mid 60's.

BTW, if you were to sell your car right now how much would you ask?
