Ok, my engine is out. Now I would like everyone that has done this before to help me make a list of things to do to the engine and things in the engine compartment. I would like your advice on what you did and especially the things you did not do and are now saying I wish I would have changed that while the engine was out! I have saved up $50 dollars U.S. money to complete this project, so you see money is no object!!!:eek:

some quick thoughts:
motor mounts
timing belt & tensioners & water pump (review and/or replace)
oil pan gasket
cam cover gaskets
review clutch
clutch "blue" hose
vacuum lines
steering rack mounting bushings
review/replace sensors on motor, under intake, etc.

Happy to help, I added the clutch "blue" hose as it is difficult to change with the engine out, nevermind with the engine in.

Of course it is also a great time to clean :)

What Stan said plus fuel lines.
Get Roger to send you all of the vaccume lines/vent hoses as well.
remove and clean the oil pump sensor and check valve.

Not sure if your heads have that check ball for the cams that comes loose, you might want to research that.

When the engine is out, is a good time to do head gaskets.

pressure wash the engine bay and wires and repair all the wires that are looking rough and need to be re-taped

I ordered a complete gasket kit and went to town on it replacing all the leakers (oil fill, water bridge, tentioner gaskets, front and rear crank seal)

Brad I do remember one of your post you developed a water leak out of some plug and you said you wished you would have changed it when the engine was out. You had also striped it trying to fix it while it was in the car. Where are those plugs?:confused:
