    Ordered -6 Billet Fuel Rails for the M1 2BBL and Black Fuel Line Kit. No additional delays in this, just adding some much needed parts.

    I am on vacation all next week, or what is now called "STAY-cation", so the goal is to have this engine installed before the following weekend. I'll spend a good part of the weekend removing the spider webs in and around the engine bay area, and arachnids that have inhabited my R/T since December 2013. I do wash it once a month, but those buggers just come right back. Oh how I miss this truck! I walk the dogs daily, and say "Good Morning" in passing, like Pee-Wee Herman did to his bicycle. OK maybe not THAT dorky, but it's close.

    I couldn't imagine having mine off the road that long. I'd go nuts.
    Get that engine in there and get back to eating tires.

    Project Maverick. I feel the need, the need for speed

    Life, work, and other things in the way, but I have this week off work and am working on it, and the engine should be in before I go back to work on Monday. Engine is hanging from the cherry picker now.

    OK now that I have you here, I have the Factory Service Manuals, and no where in there does it list the torque for the ignition plate to crankshaft bolts.

    It's in there, but they call it something stupid IIRC instead of just a flexplate. I can look in my FSM in the morning (still at work).

    I have even looked on Rock Auto for the nNe too.

    Flexplate
    Flywheel

    Looked in loads of sections for the torque on these bolts. Searched the index and these sections:
    trans
    ignition
    engine
    flywheel

    100 is incorrect for our stuff, though it may be accurate for the diesels. Here's a snapshot directly from the FSM that says 55 ft-lb for the flexplate to crank bolts and 23 ft-lb for the torque converter. Don't forget to loctite the bolts.:

    Thank you! Looking in the rear index, driveplate is not listed either. For the record, if anyone is looking in their orange 2000 Factory Manual, this torque information is on page 21-410. Yes I plan on using red thread lock on these bolts and the torque converter to flexplate or driveplate bolts as well.

    ARP flexplate bolts go to 75ftlbs., red Loctite a must on the flexplate and converter bolts.

    Well I do believe this is the slowest build in this site's history, but the saga continues...

    All set yesterday to install the engine and it turns out the sliding inner "boom" length on my Harbor Freight 1 Ton Engine Hoist is not long enough to reach. After setting it on the farthest setting of 1/4 ton, I am about a foot short. I tried as many different options as I could, with the chain length on the engine, and different angles, and could either remove the bumper, or drill some extra holes to extend the boom on the hoist. Removing the bumper doesn't look like it will give me the added room I need. This engine was originally removed using a friend's engine hoist, and I am sure it had a longer boom as it gave me no troubles. He moved out of the state(nice friend right?), so it is not available to me anymore.


    Before I get questioned about the pictures below...
    1. The Kegger Intake is just on there so I wouldn't possibly scratch the M1.
    2. I know the oil filter is damaged a little, but I have another that I am using to break in this engine.

    You can see in the picture below, that the rearmost hole on the boom (1 ton) is open, so I should be able to extend the inner it out more, and drill another support bolt hole so the engine can reach the trans and motor mounts when I reinstall this engine again. I know the farther out I go with it, the lower the weight it can take.

    As always, thoughts are appreciated, and heckling by 99dart is bound to happen.

    So, while in the air on jack stands, I finally installed the "No Longer Available" Kenny Brown Frame Brace. If you need pictures as proof, I can add them tomorrow, but it wasn't all that difficult to install. If I didn't have this one I'd buy the currently available Hypotek Brace.

    Well Dang! I feel your pain, Corey. Some times it just feels like you can't catch a break. I've done a bunch of different repairs & maintenance on mine this year. I swear I have lost every tool I have used to the engine bay gremlins and then spent forever looking for them.

    It's probably just the angle of the picture. But, it looks like you are almost right where you need to be to lower it in place. Are you doing the install alone? That makes it hard to do. Stick with it, you'll get it.

    It looks like you're right where you need to be. Not sure why you need a longer boom length. I did it on the shortest settings.

    When I lower it the engine is still about 12" from the trans. I have my neighbor helping. Too much of a swing angle and even when lowering it, can't get the engine closer to the trans. I even moved the hook on the engine chain more towards the front, as this droops the rear of the engine, still no dice.

    Yes it is the angle of the picture. So close, but yet so far. I'll get it in soon. I have tried with the motor mounts installed and without them installed. Did either of you remove the front bumper?


    If I would have purchased the 2 Ton Hoist, the boom extends from 42" to 61.75". This 1 Ton Hoist has boom adjustment of 34" to 45".

    I have a Westward engine crane that I bought years ago for around $750. Can't believe that they now cost close to $1400. https://www.grainger.com/product/WES...rchQuery=3ZC72

    Regardless, I still removed the bumper to pull and install the engine. You may want to try removing the bumper as it should provide a little more room.
    I've spent most of my money on women, booze, and my truck. The rest of the money was wasted!

    Just take the bumper off. You're already on the 500 pound setting anyway, you don't wanna see what happens when those things give way lol...
