    GavDavs Mk2 2gr-fe swap

    The start of the latest 2gr engine fitment shipment begins with gavs Mk2, here it is on the lift with the rear hubs and subframe removed...



    Shortly after the engine gearbox was out...



    Empty engine bay...



    Fuel tank removed for Walbro pump install...



    At this point i spotted a fault, the infamous hose from hell above the fuel tank has the usual crack and is leaking coolant... i will need to address this before the tank goes back in.



    So not a bad days work, lots more to come.

    Photobuckets been down for two days so unable to post pics.

    I got the hose from hell repaired, this is better than renewing the whole pipe from Toyota as you will inherit the same fault in years to come, so i chop the infected section out and replace it with rubber.



    Next i fitted the new Walbro pump into the fuel pump carrier.



    Shortly after that the tank was refitted...

    The 2gr had its cam covers removed for painting, never fails to amaze me how clean these motors are...



    New upgraded one piece oil line fitted...



    Rear cam cover painted and fitted, satin silver, Gav wants a factory finish.



    The engine is now 100% completed and detailed...

    I know what you mean, I have prostate troubles too.

    Have you tried a larger size incontinence pad?
