    So I got the engine mount brackets reMANUfactored @Steelies and got around to bolting them up, engine is now in place and the bolts go in the right holes. Next is to put everything else back together and give it a crack at starting etc. schedule before Xmas is hectic so might be a while/I’m a useless cunt

    Big thanks to Seedy Al and Joe for helping me out a few weeks back getting it back in hole. As suspected, the new mounts weren't going to work as is, so have passed the brackets onto a friendly neighborhood rapstar/master fabricator to work some magic. As an aside, according to the NZTA database, this is one of two wagons registered in NZ, and the only with mighty diesel power. 0800 COPS

    Have been uber slack for the last few months, things gt too hard. Finally got around to buying some engine mounts (arrived today), after the replacement ones sourced from Japan didn't actually exist. SO have some out of a 260c which are very similar and will/should bolt to the car, but possible some fiddling of the engine brackets to get it sitting right as they are a bit taller. So this weekend will look at getting the flywheel and clutch etc all bolted back up, and have a crack at putting the engine back in the hole. Progress. Hopefully.

    Any chance you have ripped into one of the 260c's yet? Keen to see what the mounts look like. Cheers

    Had a thing. It needed some stuff done do it. Saw manu, tried some stuff, realised we are idiots/I'm an idiot and did it the easy way. Oil line feeds the turbo and the vacuum pump for the alternator. Ordered new engine mounts ex Japan (wallet not happy but I know they will work). Last few things are to fit crank pulley, flywheel and clutch, and pull the stud out of the old block for the sump. then it's time to go back in! Aftet this photo I put the engine mount brackets on and it will be in the way of the factory turbo inlet pipe so will have to bodge something up for that
