Quoting 123abc:

Thanks guys! As it sits, the car is ready for the transplant to happen. I was also able to find a 92 center section so I now have 92 tails on the back.



There are a few misc pieces im still needing, but Im going to try swapping over the following off my talon:

-fuel filler neck
-fuel door release latch and cable
-trunk release cable
-washer fluid bottle

If anyone can offer some insight on the first two, I'd appreciate it, as those are the two most important.



The fuel filler neck can be ought new for not too bad of a price from jzntuning.com clicky

I saw that a while back. I need the whole thing though, not just the hose. Thanks though.

Yea, apparently to my friends that helped put this car together this weekend, the car is a flying penis fortress. lol

Galant is running and driving! Drove it 27 miles yesterday for the first time. Already the car drives better than my Talon did, but then again maybe thats because I have more poly bushings up front and the correct motor mounts. Still needs to be put up on the alignment rack, hopefully that'll happen tonight after work. Here's a bunch of pics twack and my friend took:

For anyone ever wondering, yes, a 1g filler neck and hose fits great:



Here's the crew that made it possible:

Gave the car an alignment at work today. I'm thinking one of my control arms is bent because one side has more camber than the other in the front end. I have some much better control arms that I had sand blasted then I painted them and put new moog ball joints in them. I just need to buy a poly bushing kit for them.

Pic of engine bay as is:



I need to pull the power steering pump out of the way and tighten the bracket that bolts to the block tonight yet. Somehow, it's loose and being my daily driver I can't have something happening.

Thanks guys. If anyone is considering relocating their washer bottle on a GVR4, It's pretty easy. I was able to use the stock bottle, with an L bracket from the washer fluid bottle off my DSM. When I had the wire harness out for fixing, I pulled the two wires for the washer fluid motor through the grommit and then ran it behind the dash, through the dr. side fender, and out the grommit behind the dr. side motor mount. Just have to run new hose (which I had to anyway, old stuff was junk).



Looks way better in this location than where it is on the firewall from the factory.

Replaced the passenger side axle seal last night at work. It was leaking, must have been damaged when we did the swapping. I'm going to do the intake manifold gasket as well, it has been leaking for quite some time. I still have a list of things to do/fix on the car, but it's still running and driving strong. Tore up a parking lot last night after work, unfortunetly I'm only at 11 psi on my setup, but that's only till I can get my gauge pod and install my wideband.

The intake manifold gasket must have been leaking for a long time because I had to zero almost everything out on the translator to get it to pull without leaning out. Runs good now at 17 psi. Gotta re-wire the fuel pump before I put it back to 24 like it was.

Finally was able to get the car titled and registered. Took all week because the guy who signed it over back in 08 traced over a 6 in the date a few times so they wouldn't accept it. At least its over now, and it's all legal to drive finally. Good thing too, because yesterday I was pulled over for window tint. Told him nope, didn't know it was illegal and I didn't know what it was. He went and got his tester but for whatever reason, it wasn't working or something. He was quiet, went back to the car for a few mins. Came back, handed me my license and told me to have a good night. I laughed the rest of my way home.

Stopped on my way home and took a few pics. Finally washed the Galant yesterday.







Pulled the oil pan today. Figured out I need a new oil pan to stop the oil pan leaks. This one is warped. Still, need a daily driver so I put it back on with some toyota RTV. Still leaks. Also fixed my exhaust from rubbing on the t-case and also added the right lengths to it so the hangers line up on the longer wheelbase galant. And to try and quiet the car down, welded a 3 in. flowmaster chambered muffler at the end.

.....aaaaand now the Galant's broke. Either the transfer case or the center diff gave up the ghost. The car still moves fine in every gear but theres a horrible gear crunching sound now. I wont know for sure until I get the car in the air. Luckily I was in town near work so I parked it there.

Put it on the hoist this morning at work before my shift started and pulled the tcase real quick and sure enough, the damn center diff is grinding. So now I'm on the look-out for a cheap replacement trans.

Picked up a transmission from a friend that was ran dry on fluid. Pulled it all apart for my first time ever tearing apart a DSM trans. Surprisingly, there's only 2 bearings and races that are trashed (on the intermediate shaft assembly), and the center diff doesn't quite feel right to me. Otherwise, nothing else seems to have abnormal play, the syncros look great.

Just some of the metal inside:



Outer bearing has some bad marks, along with it's race:



The inside bearing is pretty bad, explaining the chunks of metal:



The race is just as bad. I'm assuming the black build up is gear oil that was super hot?



I'm going to pull the transmission that's still in my Galant and take that one apart to figure out what happened and if anything is usable. I have my fingers crossed I can make a good transmission out of the two with some left-over parts. I'll have to make more room to take the other one apart:

Wow that did get hot! I think the black melted thing is an oil guide that sits under the intermediate shaft?

Is it? Can I get some confirmation on that? The vfaq article on rebuilding these never mentioned that.

Finally pulled the trans out of my Galant and took it apart to see what happened. Pretty much, exactly as I thought....stripped gears. The gear clusters on the bottom are whats going into the trans, above is the ones that were in it:





Just a few of the gear pieces:



My plans have changed slightly after finding a huge crack on the case of the trans I got from my friend. So far, as much as I can tell the trans case out of my Galant is good, so that'll be used. The center diff is being switched as well, due to mine having it's teeth crunched as well. If I can re-assemble correctly this should be a decent transmission with a GVR4 first gears, and bronze syncros. My old syncro's were the brass ones.


Thought I'd take a pic of the transmission rebuild table, in our living room:
