A couple if things I saw there Ben, You're gonna have to be careful around the steering shaft, engine torque could be a problem there. You may have to reroute your heater pipes too. Is it possible to put the front of the car on jack stands, and install the motor at a steeper angle, like I did on Willit?. It goes in at a 45+ degree angle, of course It's not as long, bu I had the tranny mounted when I installed it. Or is there another oil pan with the sump at the rear in that engine designation?Even though the nissan motor is essentially the same length as the opel I can't get it to slide down behind the front suspension. This is because the sump on the oil pan is at the front instead of the back. I think I may need to make a section of the wiper motor area removable so that I can drop the motor straight in instead of at an angle.

Sorry, Ben, that wasn't me. My engine and tranny was shipped to me, one from Florida and the other from Kentucky. The tranny came by either UPS or FedEx, I can't remember which. The engine was shipped by a commercial carrier and came in an 18 wheeler to the house. Maybe someone on the site can help.Ron, a while back I asked about the weight of the opel 1.9 and I think I remember you saying something about having shipped one recently. Who was your freight carrier?
