so im pretty far along on my engine swap, just 2.8 to 2.8 since the last engine overheated and died. just want to get this car back on the road. as im looking for differences in these engines i found something odd. my 87 engine has a big bolt in the hole that comes out from the very top where as the 86 engine still has the hose coming out. i have pics if would help but what does this hose go to? could it be why the last engine died? and can i just delete it like on mine?

Welcome to the Forum! We just had this discussion on another thread...I'll try to find it. Heater hose routing changed between '86 and '87.

Just unscrew each one and swap them over. They are both the same size and threads. Put a little pipe dope on the threads.

off the top of any ones head, is there anything else I should be looking for differences between the 87-86 engine swap? my 87 is an auto, gt. The donor motor is from a standard, 86.

I already took off the clutch etc assy and just planning on bolting my old flex on. should work right? got the old engine hanging right now and would like to have the replacement in by tonight...

The engine wiring harnesses are different on automatic and manual equipped engines. Look the two over closely and compare connectors. You'll need to transfer the transmission kick down cable to the new engine. I'd suggest disconnecting it at the throttle instead of at the transmission.

Is the kick down cable the same thing as the tv cable? Pretty sure it needs adjustment too but the button seems to be seized... or I'm doing it wrong.

Well got the replacement bolted to the tranny and all mounts. Alternater bracket off ready for the harness. There's a few rough spots in the harness but all in all very re-usable.

The kickdown cable is the same as the TV cable. I've never owned an automatic, I don't know how to adjust it. If you have a Chiltons or Haynes manual, adjustment procedure is described in them.
