Well the engines sorted, just need to make my mind up about which car.

The engine's now running with minimum of wiring but still using the factory fuses and relays. Its an nice self contained loom that just requires battery + and -, starter signal, and ignition on signal to get it to run. The relay sequencing is vital or you will never get idle control to work properly.

Here's a short vid of it running on the floor.

I must add, Terry and Tom did a lot of work stripping most of the surplus wiring from the engine and I have just done the relay sequencing and power feeds.

Awesome. Another Hybrid awaits...personally I would love to see this in a 70's Japanese saloon or station wagon.

Thanks. Can't wait to get it in the car. It was going in the ratty 240 but as its been delayed for another6 weeks, it's going in the 280z, which should be here in a week or so.

I finished wrapping the loom so that's all the wiring done. Started looking at how it's going to fit and what to do about engine mounts. There are a few issues and I'll have to weigh up the options. The oil filter will need relocating and there is a custom part someone makes for this. The sump touches the front crossmember. I could change to a mid or rear sump but these are hard to come by. I could notch a bit out of the front of the sump but the engine will still be tight to the balk head. I don't want to push the engine too far forward but this may be the easiest way and I could use the supra engine mount kit.

Needs some thinking.

Yeah that was an interesting loom to work out, just make sure you get the engine ground points back to the battery nicely. The cam signals are a bit picky

I noticed a few grounds were cut which I will reinstate. Toyota, at the time were very careful about grounding specific parts of the engine, as with my 1j, so I'll try and work out were they went. There are a couple of wires for the obd port that go nowhere. One has a spade connector on it and the other is labeled "POS own lug". Also a pink wire from the port is just cut. Any ideas where these went as I would like to try and get the This port working?

Thanks.

Had another look at engine location today. Placed a cross member on the ground, under the engine, and marked the bulkhead on the floor. I then spent a while moving the engine around until I was happy with its location. Looks like the sump will need some extensive modification if I cant find a rear sump kit.

Ok Terry, I'll dig a bit deeper as to what those wires are for.

I've been trying to get hold of a rear sump to replace the front sump in order to make mounting the engine easier. This has proved fruitless in finding one at a reasonable price. I can get a custom one but I'm not paying 800 so it's back to seeing if its feasible to modify mine enough to get the engine in a reasonable place. I would like it quite far back in the engine bay but not too far that It becomes a problem. The further back I go the less I have to mod the sump. To give you an idea, if the rear of the engine nearly touches the bulkhead then I wont have to modify the sump at all but engine mounts will be a long way out. So if I compromise and place the engine so I can fabricate mounts to just reach the original crossmember location and then only take a couple of inches out of the front of the sump so I don't interfere with the pickup then it should work, just, I think. Once I removed the oil filter assembly I'll have a better idea.

Next decision is whether to solid mount the engine or not. This is pretty common with v8's and will make the mounts a lot easier.

At least the car has reappeared on the tracking and I'll be collecting it next week so trial fitting can begin.
