Well there wasn't any oil in it Franky so I'd call it dry.

Not sure if I have a pickup. That may require more digging.

Are you placing the engine roughly where the l series went or pushing it back for handling?

I settled for as far back as possible so as the gear stick still remains with in the original
Apature.
Probably slightly further back than McKinney or Cx mounts would be.
I also ended up doing away with the gearbox mounting ears on the tunnel and making up
A completely new rear mount to body.
There really isn't enough clearance between the ears and the gearbox
The engine sits about 40mm of the bulkhead

Sounds good.

I tried to make use of the ears on both the 1jz and current 3uz but had no option than to cut them off. It's easy to just make a crossmember and bolt to the tunnel or floorpan.

Its not further back than the McKinney mounts, my engine is as far back as it can go, only 30mm from the bulkhead and my rear head drain is only about 1cm from the bulkhead.

With your McKinney mounts are you still retaining the original rear gearbox ears on the tunnel?
If so is there much clearance between the speedo drive and the tunnel mount bracket.
From photos they look as if they still have to be trimmed back a bit?

No, its not possible to retain the mounting ears, I even had to trim a section out of the double skinned area where they originally are mounted to in order for the speedo drive to clear.

It's been a few months but looks like I might actually get the car back from the body shop I a couple of weeks.
Called in today and they have her in base primmer waiting Blocking down prior to being primer filtered and painting.

Yep. I have had the engine bolted in prior to painting
But I have seen mention that sometimes it can foul the bonnet bracket
