Still looking for motor installation help in MA/NH area... WILL TRADE OR MONEY

hey I am looking for help installing my motor into my car. I have an 86 944 getting an 88 motor. I've got the motor and the car and all I need is help putting it all together by someone that knows what they are doing.. I was told people here would be able to help me out. I can pay a little bit.. I also have the old motor, so if you want an extra block or any of the parts (I dont know whats good you'll have to check it out) I was told by someone that the car can be on the road and running in 5 hours by him... so anyone that can help me out would be greatly appreciated..

ok well lets start with getting that arm on the front changed... I assume I have to take all those gears off then pull off the plastic, then change the arms and put all the gears back on? again... if there is ANYONE in the area that can help me out please let me know!

Step 1. Fix the broke piece

the things I mention refer to www.clarks-garage.com for clarification

Look up the section on replacing front seals.

That will explain how to release the crank bolt, rollers, tensioners, rear black timing belt cover etc.......... and then you will have access to that lower balance shaft housing (the part you have circled)

On that picture you are showing you have one dilemna. How to remove and torque down that crank bolt. Normally you would lock the crank (with a flywheel lock). You dont have the flywheel on yet.

You see if you try and remove the crank bolt the engine wants to turn over....... That bolt is at 150lbs. I would install the flywheel/clutch. You can then rig it up to lock the crank in place while you remove the crank bolt.

I would replace all the front seals at this point and check all the rollers, tensioners and waterpump for wear..

This should get you started........ http://www.clarks-garage.com/shop-manual/eng-14.htm

Pay special attention to the other procedures section on that page.

jeez that looks really complicated... I really hope someone in the area comes through.... I appreciate the help I just really dont want to mess anything up. I put the clutch and bellhousing on the new motor.... but I just put it back on the way it would bolt up... I didn't line anything up with anything... so I dont know if I did it right...

Its not that complicated. It just takes time to look things over.

So while you wait for someone to step up......... tackle one section at a time.

It seems overwhelming at first but just take little bites and understand what you are doing.

Just post your questions here. There are no dumb questions and we all learn from the steps you take. So get at it........start reading.

The assembly you have left is pretty straight forward. Just don't assume ........ask.

So lets start with the flywheel and bellhousing if you like.

Start another thread if you like .......take a pic of what you did and how you did it. Torque specs etc........ or what you are planning on doing. Maybe ask before you do.
