Any rush?

I'd like to grab another one from the wrecker before I part with it. Could be a few weeks.

Wanted to get it assembled with a top feed fuel rail and some 800cc injectors but that will have to wait until the next paycheck...

The engine is all back together, thanks to the help of Eric (speedricer) coming over last night to give me a hand. The trouple now is a starting issue (electrical) My starter isn't rolling over at all so I have to go get a multimeter and see what I can find out. Here are some picks of the engine back together.

^^ This little bastard gave me the fight of my life. never ever doing the upper timing belt in the engine bay ever again. F timing belt tensioners.

I'm gonna see what I can figure out with the starter, hopefully it's something little...heres hoping.

looks good man! anythings new with the starter? can you turn it over if you hook battery directly to it? that might help narrow things.

I want to be able to, I have to check my avaiability bc the army has me signed up for some bullshit two week training event...even though I'm not going to Afghanistan with the unit and I'm out in 7 months...awesome.

Thanks man. I put the battery to the starter and it popped out but didn't turn over. I'm thinking it has to be something between the battery to the neutral switch...all the fuses look fine. I'm gonna have to dig a little deeper.

In the meantime I'm wiring up all of my guages to their respective power sources and senders haha...funny thing...the sender for the oil pressure wont thread into the head...I love working on this car.

dude i got ya on the sender! what gauge do you have? i have a prosport oil pressure gauge and i ended up putting a T in so that i could run the oil pressure warning light and the sender. i had to re-thread to make part of it fit into the head. its a metric pipe thread if i remember right. thats what i did to make it work. if you want more info i can show you a pic and such. about the starter- it seems that if the solenoid pops out but the starter doesn't turn over with direct power it would be starter related...? but you know more about whats goin on so whatever. lol. good luck man.

I've got the autometer pro comp 2...I think I'm gonna have to tap the threads in the head.

So the starter is toast. A new one is 90 bucks...sick. Anyone have a spare I can buy?

You do know that the starter is rebuildable right? Its preety simple and your local dealer will have the brushes and everything you need to do it.

^ I did know that, but wasnt sure how simple it was.

So...went and pulled off a starter from a st184 at the junk yard today...got home...installed it...same thing. So I re-check my original starter...and it spins up. wtf. I proceed to pull the replacement starter off and re-install my original one. Same thing.

Start looking around the engine bay and realize there are a couple wiring harness clips I overlooked...one being the starter relay...

Long story short, plugged it in and the beast fired right up and idled out...no timing issues to speak of.
