The 433 is in 

After a lot of BS like McLeod sending me a Chevy pilot busing with their clutch, I finally got the motor in. Since I was doing this solo, I matted the trans to the engine and installed as one. That means I have maybe 1/4" to 1/2" of wiggle room and both the car and engine need to be at the perfect angle for this to work. I didn't use the lift plate but my engine tilter hooked to 4 chains so I needed some different chain links etc. I took my time and after the second run at it, it went in perfectly with surprisingly little hassle. It should take me two days from here to where I can fire the motor

Total Cost: $15
