Good afternoon Fiero world,
This is my first post since finding this website. I have been floating around the site for a couple of weeks reading the threads and searching the archives gathering information on doing a 3800sc swap. There is quite a bit of information on here and everyone seams really helpful.
Here is a real quick bio on me before I get to the topic at hand. I am a 17 year active duty member of the U.S. Navy, currently stationed at NAS Jacksonville, Jacksonville FL. My current position is as a P-3 aviation structural mechanic instructor at the school house here in FL, prior to instructing I was a P-3/C-2 structural mechanic. I have a working knowledge of sheet metal fabrication and hydraulics. While I do have some basic knowledge of automobiles I have never endeavored into a project of this magnitude and hope you guys don’t mind if I lean on you for help. Enough about me lets get back on topic.
I picked up a 97 GTP, stuck it in the garage and started to tear it down. The plan is to refresh the motor and trans and drop them it into an auto fiero when I come across a solid rolling chassis. Here is a rundown of what I have pulled so far. I might have pulled more than I needed to but I figured its better to have more than not enough. The car is heading to the scrap yard this week, so I was hoping someone could let me know if there is anything else I need to pull before it goes. Additionally, if there is anything I pulled that I should toss.
One engine, trans, engine side wire harness and one newb engine puller!
The drivers side axle. The boot clip was off and grease was everywhere. Is it still serviceable?
Electronic components, PCM, fuse block, not sure what the three on the left are.
Complete dash wiring harness.
Throttle cables and engine side shift cable.
Misc. A/C lines. Would like to keep A/C in fiero.
Ok well that's what I have so far. Any info you guys can provide would be great. Tomorrow I am going to start breaking down the motor. Tonight I am taking my daughter to see the WWE. She has to be the biggest John Cena fan in the world.
