Starting the 'other' 2.8 Chevrolet motor 1-23-10
Re-put-together with parts from the 2.8 I shot with my hakim, this engine
had a spun rod bearing which messed up the crank, and rod. I re-assembled
it with the crank from the other engine, and one rod, and fabricated an
adapter plate to mount a 2bbl carb in place of the fuel injection system.
A few issues, but it does start and run. Don't know what I will do with
this engine....in the spring maybe rev it until it blows, or shoot at it.

3.4 Liter GM 3400 Engine Replacement / Swap 1999 Alero / Grand Am 4 Door
Bought this 1999 Oldsmobile Alero For $800 with a known bad motor. Engine
was shot, knocked and burned antifreeze due to a bad head & intake gasket.
So, I found another 3400 from a wrecked Grand Am. Was smoked in the back.
Got the replacement engine for $500 (ouch). Put on a new intake manifold
gasket on the replacement motor as well. Pulled out the old engine and
replaced it with the new one. Runs like a champ now! These engines are
good, if the intake manifold gasket has been replaced. Put lots of
silicone to each edge of the gasket. Sealed up great! No smoking and no
leaks like these are natorious for.

months to finsh runnin it with open headers.
