I know you guys won't believe this but after almost a year and 3 months there is an engine resting between the frame rails of my Kia. I will work on hooking up all the hoses and electral tomorrow. I can't believe how easy it slid into place. It took 1 try and about 5 minutes to align it up to the trans, the clutch alignment tool must have worked. I spent most of my time today looking for a part that didn't exist. When I pulled the engine out I thought I bent the dip stick bracket so I straitend it out with a hammer, when I tried to put it together I couldn't get it to fit around the cooling inlet pipe and thought it needed a spacer. After I bent the bracket back it all fit, what a dummy <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> I was. Well wish my luck on hearing noise tomorrow.
