My JDM motor has been quite good , logging 25,000+ miles over the past four years. But recently it has been beginning to show its age. So, I sourced a spare motor that came with a transmission attached which wasn’t too bad, but there was a pesky stripped torque converter bolt that proved to be the only challenge… Nothing the sawzall couldn’t solve.
Having a winch mounted on barn-door tracks in the garage really made this process easy on the back.
Here is a short time-lapse video.
