It's still a PITA because it's going to be easy to hit too when you install the motor Just make sure the fitting to the AL oil cooler has an oring seal and is torqued properly and you'll be fine. I just didn't get the sensor into the adapter right and then rushed around when it was leaking oil and didn't properly get my wrench on the adapter. Completely stupid, but you're going to make mistakes unless you do this for a living and then you may have a few swaps where you don't make some mistakes.
And conversely you don't want to have the sensor installed perfectly and then slightly tap something inside the frame while you're struggling getting everything inside the frame lined up and shear a sensor off or something.
Agreed! No crazy rush on the swap since I'm still awaiting parts to get to Alaska.
This weekend will be dropping the fuel tank and adding submersible hose. Then the part I don't want to tackle, cleaning up wiring in the engine bay and getting the old ecm out!
Might rip out the old cluster and mock up an aluminum gauge cluster... Well without the gauges.
More to follow!!!
