    Well, Yesterday was beautiful outside. 55 degrees F. So I went out to start prepping my engine for the swap. It was still bolted to the auto tranny so i got it all unbolted and pulled off the tranny. bow i am left with an engine with a troque converter attached. I know how to get it off, but the crank won't turn.. How much force should be required to turn that puppy?

    Any way.. I'm looking for a p28 and a obd0-obd1 conversion harness. if any can help PM me.

    Also does anyone know where I can get a new plug (that connects to the wiring harness) for a distributor? the person that pulled the engine cut off the connector.

    jdmshit.com had the conversion harnesses the cheapest when i was looking for one, but somone on here was selling them cheaper... try searching?

    i would put a socket and ratchet on the crank bolt and make sure the motor turns over before going ANY further...

    siezed motor = no swap for you...

    and you can post in the classifieds here for WTB, but i doubt anyone will have that plug laying around... go visit a junkyard...

    the engine is out of the car... I wanted to know how much torque it should take to turn the crankshaft. the bolts that hold the torque converter on are easy to take off but i cnt get the torque convertor to turn to get at the rest of the bolts. could this be a siezed engine?

    i haven't tried any breaker bars to get it to turn

    Well I know for a fact that it wasn't siezed because of over heating and stuff. It is from just sitting there. So I was doing some searching on google and I am just going to put some oil into the cylinders and work it for a while.

    haha shitty. In Long Island it's raining.

    I know I have some obd0 Dizzy connectors.
    I may have an obd1 connector.

    If it's the obd1 do you need both?

    Defenitly try to turn it over with a breaker bar.
