Bolt it back together and run it

Having a 121 head, I've had a hard time finding suitable pistons for my matching number engine. So I decided to use the engine out of the spares car to practice on while I search for pistons.

The bearings wore pretty bad on the practice engine and the oil pump chain was too loose, the ring lands were way out of spec so I am just going to replace the bearings, new oil pump chain and put the old pistons back in and see if it will run.

I lifted the car body off the subframe using a chain block and a heavy duty rack shelf, and then pulling the the subframe out using an ATV lift:

Hooking up the gearbox to the engine:

With the engine mounted onto the subframe, I strapped everything down to the ATV lift with an extra trolley bearing the weight of the gearbox, I slipped it all into position:
