    I just wondered because it didn't look like heads had been removed.

    Judging by the amount of aluminum bits all over the engine and the shop-vac in the background, my guess is the heads were not removed. Anyway, are there any progress updates on this?

    Yes.

    I keep trying to put photos inline, but it keeps failing. Probably something to do with my browser or Flash. Anyway, here are two attached.

    Engine accessories have been fitted: a/c compressor, water pump, and alternator. Serpentine belt is installed. Everything looks good.

    Alternator is in the stock position for the 3.0L engine; as a result, that wiring had to be replaced with a longer run.

    New engine mounts have been installed.

    Engine compartment is ready for installation.

    Well, he didn't use the stupid fitting that's on it. He took a piece of heater hose and stretched it over the whole thing and used a hose clamp.

    Do you know if a 2.8L (K-Jet) manifold will fit on the 3.0L?
