    Keep track of the vg progress I'm interested in that. Idk if that'll be my next swap or if I'll just get a patty with a vg in it already.

    for sure one wire at a time indeed, still waiting to find out where those other two go then i should be in business, after fuel and cooling and i'm sure other little shit here and there that will pop up. i think i'll need to swap the harness though as there's a few almost broken wires on the injector plugs and it's very crunch all over.

    i'm not trying to delete anything other than egr/emissions because it's not needed where i live and the engine didn't come with it. i've got the bolts for the iacv got it bolted up and wiring started on today.

    do you happen to know the size/thread pitch for the IACV on the 240 intake? i don't have any and it appears to be like a 8mm bolt?

    i'm going to PS delete so that's one less thing to worry about. i'm hoping I'll be able to hear it run this week sometime around wednesday or so. i've been in talk with a guy who's done the swap before and with the wiring box from icehouse it really isn't too bad for wiring, because i kept the 720 harness for all the normal lights and functions. i may be over simplifying it but it really does seem like that's all, we'll see.

    I'm using a 240 intake so there's plenty of room where as the truck intake i can see being a pita.

    motor and trans went in today, turns out i forgot to check if there was an old pilot bushing and there was one hence the reason i couldn't get the trans with the new bushing in. tomorrow i'll try and start on the wiring before work at 4 hopefully i'll get a good chunk of it done as it's only 6 wires. then after that will be a fuel cell (maybe a keg from my work) 🤔. next time the truck has to move it'll be under it's own power.

    It is a 5 speed that came out of the truck I did replace the pilot bussing, clutch and flywheel. I'm going to end up pulling the motor and mate them together then stuff the whole thing in.

    got the transmission mostly in today, I don't think it's lined up properly however as there's still about a half inch gap all the way around. I figured I'd give it a break for awhile as I was getting tired and frustrated and didn't want to drop the trans on myself.

    got the transmission almost ready to go in, last few things are fuel lines, wiring, cluster and radiator. cluster aside i should have it running and driving very very soon. It's been a long time coming and i can't wait.

    bolting it in really is the easy part which i figured it would be, going to give wiring a break for a bit and deal with the fuel plumbing as my next task. Hopefully by then it'll start making more sense to me.

    even with the write up by icehouse i am having a difficult time understanding the wiring on the ecu side of things. it seems the more i read it the more confused i get.

    got the mounts and the motor is in, mostly wired up on the engine side now to figure out the interior wiring, and plumbing for fuel and cooling, transmission and a few other odds and ends hopefully it'll be driving in a couple months.

    does anyone know where i could find some 720 motor mounts for a 2wd from 1985? i need the truck side mounts and am having a hell of a time finding any.

    How to: KA24DE swap into 720

    that's awesome, i ended up getting a single cam ka for mine out of a 92 pickup, hoping to drop it in and get it fired in the next week or so.
