By an act of God, an impact gun, a cherry picker, using the same set of cuss words in seven different languages, I finally got all the mounts lined up and bolted in for good.

Pics to come.

Had to flip one of the transmission linkage bars underneath because the design makes it hit a trans mount bolt when trying to pull the shifter over toward the driver to access the numerically lower gears.  Now the shifter is a little more over to the right, but nothing to lose sleep over.

You just couldn't get all the mounts and cradle to line up by bolting in the side mounts first.  Every mount is made crooked or offset.

I took everything back loose except for the engine mount and reinstalled everything in the order of passenger, firewall, radiator support, driver side.  All lined up perfect on the first try.

Not much of an update, but I learned that even the SOHC and DOHC use completely different slave cylinders tonight.  Notice the mounting location, line insert, and bleed.  What a pain this caused.

Not a lot to report lately on this project.

Got the heater core hoses hooked up, got to get a new pinout for part of the harness, and I'm just going to go ahead and buy a new slave cylider with the hardlines.

Got a new slave cylinder and hardline, then had to move it so dad could put brakes on his car.

Since then the whole 1zz Tercel thing came to be, so I just haven't moved it back to the garage.

Just updating to say nothing new has happened with this.  

Not gave up, but I just moved it to the side and never have gotten back to it.
