Good luck with that. It sounds far more trouble that it might be worth.

Please keep us informed on your progress, at least with that one you haven't got the added complication of electronic injection.

So far what I have done was:
Disassembling donor car, cleaning up a new engine a bit;
Welding up a diy engine crane (I could borrow it but I work slowly throughout the weekends, so it's not a possibility);
And last weekend started disassembling my car, got the engine and everything else out;

So far whats waiting is to put a more powerful alternator on a 2.8 engine and put it in for first measures. Hope the driveshafts won't have to get modified. Everything else seems not too big of a problem. Added challenge for me will be putting in an AC pump, but I will make it work somehow.
