I'm currently taking a lot of crap from my parents about the head swap. It seems like this will prolly be a l8 night affair or just a big fight, but whatev, my dad can go to hell.

Anyway, pictures of the tuck will come later after I have it all taped up and such, not today though, need a sanity check tonight.

SVOboy; Sorry to hear your catching any grief. It it were me, I'd be thinking "hey, that's pretty cool he's interested and willing to try something new", but that's just me. I wouldn't be surprized if their isn't something else going on, also.

Anyway, I got to thinking about the yellow/black wire and I think if everything else is Ok, I'd just put a piece of heat shrink over the end, with a note to yourself, to leave it alone in the future.

haha, yeah, there's always something else. generally that i dislike my dad and that i've been pretty mean to my mom for no reason, thinking about picking up a full engine just to placate them and myself (head swap is teh scareness to me).

anyway, when i loomed everything up i left that wire out so i'd know what's up with it.

everyone in my family drives pre-96 cars. the camry mom bought new in 93, never broken down, never had an issue, nothing's ever worn out, 140k miles.

dad has a 94 geo prizm (toyota corolla) which has 190k and has had some issues but nothing major (dead ignitor).

all of cars are stick shift, also.

damn, i'm pretty sure he got ripped off, bad axle doesn't cost crap to repair,

my mom's car is worth enough to for the insurance company to spend 1k repairing some littles dents to both doors from where someone backed into it in a parking lot, mwahaha.

ninja edit: oh, axle seal. what'd he do, burn out the tranny?
