    Does anyone have any info on how to wire the transfer case? I think I've got all the engine and gearbox wiring figured out, but I think there's 5 plugs on the transfer case that somehow need to be connected to something. It's a shame a lot of Vince's posts have gone now, as I'm sure the answer would have been in there somewhere.

    Also, any recommendations on a flat pack stainless exhaust kit would be useful. I'll be buying a TIG to make it, just need a good source of the parts.

    So the engine is now in its (hopefully) final place. Quite close all round to be honest so hopefully everything clears with any torque twist.

    And the new lump in the hole. Just needs a lot of lining up before the engine and gearbox mounts are fabbed.

    So the smelly coal burner has been removed finally. But of a struggle with the transfer box attached. If I did it again, I’d remove the transfer box first!

    Nope. Something which may bite me in the future

    Engine now all back together with new belt, water pump and idlers. EGR blanks made and installed, and gearbox all painted and ready to refit. Also chopped off the manifold heat shield brackets just in case the get in the way.

    Just got to make up the engine mount bracket plates on the 1uz then I can start pulling the surf apart.

    Today was strip down day. My SGS engine stand arrived, so I was able to get it mounted on there, and started stripping off the cam belt and water pump. I went for the heavier duty engine stand, as I heard the smaller one was a bit wobbly. Glad I went for this one, as it helped when cracking the crank pulley bolt! You can see in the photos below, I used my 2 poster to prevent the engine twisting on the stand whilst I got a long breaker bar on the crank pulley bolt.

    So now it’s all stripped down, I can get all the parts cleaned and painted before the new pump and belt kit goes on.

    Does anyone know if I can get a top end gasket set without the head gasket cheaply? I’m a little concerned about reusing some of the gaskets, especially the upper water junction.

    So today managed to remove the transmission, main loom and fuel rail/inlet manifold. It’s a bit mucky in there, so plenty of cleaning to be done before painting.

    incidentally, if anyone knows what needs to be done with the wiring, that would be hugely appreciated!
