New rear engine mount today


A bit messy with oil or something up there.

Mounted the castor correction bushes also

They really should come with the lift kit, its much better to drive, hardly any trailing compared to before!
Planing the engine swap one of the coming weekends also

Gearbox shaft seal leaking?

Pulled the engine today

Hood and all cables off


Cleaned out the bell housing, was alot of oil spill there from the leaking engine. Pressure washed the rest of the engine bay.

Engines are on top dead center and ready to pull the cam sensor ring tomorrow.

Here are the two sumps, you can see that the small baleno one is wider than the jimny one. Cutting and welding them tomorrow! Hoping to maybe get it in the engine bay when saturday is over

Seems I get delayed until monday to get the engine in.. the flywheel bearing came out in pieces. Probably because I forgot to put a jack under the gearbox before pulling the engine apart from the box, tearing the bearing off.
Been all over the city looking for a bearing, but the shops that could have it are closed on saturday, of course.

Guess I can take my time getting everything ready, have to patch some rust holes also at the front thats not reachable when the radiator is in.

Here is the blanking plate for the rear of the head. Original with a rubber seal, metal gasket on the Baleno G16B. Sealed a little bit with rtv silicone also

Good job so far.. I actually find it easier to just remove the gearbox before pulling out the motor, but ofcourse not as easy when the car is on the floor.

Did you check the flywheel for wear, as it looked alittle worn on the pictures?

It will do for now :lol:
The clutch has had its days so I should consider changing the flywheel later on

Nice to have some luck also!! A friend work at the service department at the Stressless factory next to my garage, they had a huge bearing stock!

New bearing in

Modified sump, spot weld first then took it off to complete weld. There was a threaded hole one cylinder behind that i could use for support bracket


Test fitted the sump before complete weld

No I have pulled the cam ring off
