Bracket for accessory belt tensioner complete but rough, grinding and painting to come. Still the belt lines up very well.



That means that the belts are done, now on to wiring.

Rant: i now have 5 electrical things on Freya that need to be fixed. The headlight motors, the windshield wipers, the radiator fan, the tachometer, and the remote trunk lid release.

Cant seem to find fixes for these bugs. Very frustrating

I'm the original owner of a white ' 84 2M4 purchased Dec 10, 1983 from Pontiac. Always garaged, no rust, 4-wheel drifts are fun!

Been a long time since i posted. My motor is now out of the car. Built a beam in the attic with a hook down thru the ceiling. Once the motor was unhooked from the rest of the car, it took a max of 15 minutes to slide the motor out the side. i expect i will have to put in in several times to check the measurements. My motor mounts are going to work just fine, i think. Gonna have to angle my angle to the cradle too. i spect that i will be able to measure and build a dogbone, and tack it in place to the alternator tensioner bracket.
