    TB has changed to a different domain name for now so I swaped the domain name over in the links. One of them works :thumbsup:

    Just a minor comment - the guide doesn't mention disconnecting the pipes to the oil cooler:whistle:

    Happened to me too... it's just lucky Paul didn't omit to say you've got to make sure the engine isn't running when you start trying to take the gearbox off...!! That would have screwed up my garage a bit!!!

    This was really useful - thanks Paul

    - it took 3 hours start to finish due to the great descriptions and everything coming apart like meccano - in contrast with any of the numerous minis I've played with.

    It was a bit quicker stickign an equally young engine (80K) back in - now I dont feel guilty about trashing a relatively good example.

    A couple of minor suggestions

    - another picture showing the slave cylinder brackety bit stuck up in the air would be good as thats the least intuitive bit.
    - I dont think you need to take the distributor off (means you dont have to get the timing right when you stick it back).
    - removing the oil pipes is pretty obvious - i let my son do that from underneath .. well he wanted to help.

    I found using 2 jacks, then axle stands either side of a fencepost was much easier than one in the middle - it was then as solid as a very solid thing.

    I noticed that most bolts on the MR2 dont have spring washers under them - are you meant to locktite or similar ? (I did). Is the preferred goo for the exhaust manifold to clampy bit gungum or bath sealant (the new 0 rings gaskets don't work).

    Finally - how time consuming is the wiring / ecu swap / non standard bits for sticking a mk2 2L in as the standard 1600 engine revs great but is gutless.

    Thanks again ,
    AD

    Glad it helped you and welcome to TB!

    If i get a chance one day i will update the guide with better pics/instructions.... the only reason i advise removing the dizzy is that it comes close to smashing on the front bulkhead when the engine is dropped.

    The mk2 engine swap is well documented on this forum,its not hard to plumb and wire ,the hardest bit is the new mounts.
