Good to see you're back JK
If you're at school, where do you plan to work on this?? In the parking lot?
I am going to assume you don't have an engine lift, yes?
This is not a quick 10 minute job. If you have never done this before and don't have adequate tools,
this will be a nightmare of epic proportions.
I'm not trying to be a dud, but take into consideration that you will be lying on your back removing
exhaust components, removing bell housing bolts, engine mounts, starter motor, etc.
Although the engine is relatively small, you won't be removing it by manually lifting it unless you have spent many years at the gym pushing iron around...
Don't get me wrong though. I pulled an engine using a come along and a tree limb. Many times.
I even changed a piston in a 56 Chevy pick up - in the parking lot of the Amarillo TX Motel 6... It can be done.
The kicker: when I read that you were going to haul this tub up three flights of stairs to your dorm room.
I also worked at a college during summer break a long time ago. Maintenance.
We hauled away 6 abandoned cars/trucks that students had started to work on but never finished. Happens every year.
I suggest that you take this home and work on it there. You will have time to make mistakes and do the work at your own pace.
And, since I have a 1990 S10 with a 3.4 Camaro engine in it, I can say that it is totally worth the effort.
If you actually get around to doing the swap, the forum members will be happy to help with suggestions and assistance.
