Jda222221 Posted January 20, 2020 Report Share Posted January 20, 2020 I got a 1982 720 with z22 about a year ago for a couple hundred and a load of horse manure. Pot growing country! It has a bent frame so I set it aside for a swap. Around x mas I found a 1985 720 in great shape with brand new tires and a one family owner. Father in law bought brand new in 85 and was passed on to son in law. The engine was toast from being run with blown HG. First time I have seen coolant come out first when draining oil:). I have spent past 3 weeks doing the swap. My first time doing an engine swap. It started right up and sounded good. My gearbox seemed like it had moved a little bit towards passenger but I took it for a test drive. I found out, after switching into 4wd that passenger cv axle was barely touching my oil pan. It put a tiny gouge in the pan but I made it home, had switched on 4and to get up the non maintained driveway. I spent all day yesterday adjusting the motor mounts and adding shims but to no avail. I have the motor centered and my gear box feels normal now, but the pan is still barely rubbing. At this point I am stumped, I am planning on jb welding the tiny hole and then just driving to my buddies an hr away so we can completely fabricate custom mounts. I was hoping I could use shims and bring him a reference mount. Are the z22 and z24s oil pans shaped differently? From what I can tell they look identical. Quote Link to comment
