    Half the reason I'm so not upset about it was being at Moreton when I got the news with a bunch of my best mates to spread a close mates ashes on what would have been his 30th birthday. Hard to be upset about wasting a few hours of my time over the last year or so with perspective like that, I at least had the time to waste.

    I've already sorted another engine for nix and as previously mentioned the actual swap is going to cost fuck all. Z32's are going up in price as good ones are few and far between thanks to most left being shitboxes or scrapped for reasons detailed since the beginning of this thread so will definitely come out in front come sale time. This one is really good despite the mechanical woes that have befallen me and none of the issues are related to the car itself, more so the engine I was trying to save out of the original red wreck. Has had a metric ton of cash thrown at it by previous owners in the right areas and will be a really nice thing once I'm done with it, nice interior, heaps of sound deadening, good suspension, straight shell and all the electric bits work as intended so whoever ends up with it (Cam) will have a solid dependable rig.

    Sourced another engine for this over the weekend and dropped it off at the mechanics for a thorough inspection and health check before being inserted into the car later in the week.

    Fingers crossed it comes through OK but it came with a ten year plus history from the previous owner plus has recently had all the major service items done (timing belt, tensioners, water pump,etc) and will also be getting all new seals in the top end so confident it should be fine.

    Have found a new car for the wife so this will be on the chopping block once everything is sorted and tidied up.

    I predict that this will end up replacing the E30 when it's properly fixed, you'll drive it and go, fuck hey, might keep it.

    Hi Sketchy,

    After some tips for removing Z32 engine and gearbox, you seem well practiced.
    I want the lot out with aircon, power steering pump and alternator.
    I was considering dropping the subframe and lifting the body with a block and tackle.
    Engine and gearbox will not be going back in.

    Any advice or tip would be appreciated.

    If you have the room to do so that would be the go as all of the accessories need to be removed, subframe and rack dropped, tension rods and steering knuckle need to be unbolted to get the engine out anyway. Be aware that the car will essentially be unmovable once you do this unless you have go jacks on the front end or want to bolt everything back together after you've pulled the drivetrain out. A hoist is the best option for this because trying to put everything back together is a real pain without a few pairs of hands, like a constantly moving 3d jigsaw puzzle.

    The VG's are a fucking big motor also so make sure you will have enough clearance to actually lift the body high enough to roll it out under the front otherwise it's all going back in again! Here to help if you have anything that holds you up or not sure about when the time comes.

    So true to form the existing engine is munted. Havent decided if I'll make it into a coffee table or scrap it but it will never go back in a car again.

    The new engine I supplied however looks great so all the best bits of the two are being assembled and should be back in the car running by weeks end with rego next week and then give it a dyno run and maybe a blat down the quarter to see what it will do.

    Not that it will matter because Player 2 has entered the game so Player 1 will be getting sold very soon.

    Yup. One of the freshly replaced items I spent some time hunting down and fiddling with for a while to get right too at the last engine failure. Should have binned it then, I'm a stubborn mong sometimes.

    Trying to figure out what I could make out of all the busted spares I have. Two cranks, two blocks, full set of cams, five heads and numerous other trinkets.

    Tempted to weld them all together into a Z32 scarecrow in an attempt to ward off evil VG spirits and put it next to the firepit in the front yard when it's done.

    But with Sketchy's run with the Z32 the cranks would probably break the first time anyone sat on the stools....

    I'm not at all religious, but I'd be getting the local fire brigade to dowse your entire home in holy water, after removal of. every. single. z32. part.
    Then go to confession and purge your soul of the vile, wretched scum that has invaded your life.

    It's a small price to pay.
