Well, it wasn't easy, but its in...roughly. As it stands, the engine is mounted in it's final resting place. The short hood of the hilux made dropping the engine with trans as one unit very very difficult and id advise against it for people who are scared of scratching the paint. The transmission is currently being held up by a jack as these motors don’t have pitch stop mounts like the subaru i am more used to. Driveshaft slotted in beautifully on install, that was way better that i expected, lets hope it is correct because i really don't want to pull that out. Next up is to test fit, cut, tap, and mount the transmission cross member to accept the w55 trans. Although i have a '78 and the transmission knowledge thread i shared before is supposedly for a '78 Chinook, our trans crossmembers look completely different. I don’t know if min is and early '78 or a late '78 or if it was unique to the dual rear axle trucks but they don’t look the same at all despite us sharing the same L43 trans to start. I'll post some pictures tomorrow and get that cut and mounted up so i can move onto the electrical and the cooling system. While im doing that, i have a friend who is gonna take care of the nightmare rust situation where the battery usually fits as well as making an exhaust that will go down and cross under the trans to mate to the existing exhaust system so that takes some time consuming stuff of my hands. I do have to pay for it but at least it will speed up the process for me. The wiring in this rv, both front and back, is downright appalling and i both hate and suck at wiring so chasing down where all these wires go with be a bummer but it has to get done. I plan to just make the vehicle run and drive and then while my gf does the rear RV part of the build, i can handle taking the dash out, cleaning up the 45 year old wiring harness of everything i don’t need, and fixing my turn signals which just shut off when i hit the brakes. Here is a pic of the rv with the new engine and the hood fitting!
