no problem! and i just put my trans in.... it took me 30 Mins LOL

but i cannot see how one can do it without a lift :/ I'm gonna make a write up on it i took pictures as i went but i gotta explain a lot. pretty straight forward. but ididnt fill the trans yet with fluid picking up the diff and installing aluminum bushings tomo and gonna hook everything up hopefully i installed the tourqe converter correctly.. maybe i should've googled how to do it.. instead of doing it myself but ill find out tomorrow

if it starts without locking up or burning the oil pump them I'm safe!

This. Always be sure the components you're using are compatible with ethanol. Make sure the polymer from the zip ties is as well. Mcmaster-Carr sells some nice chemical resistant ones if need be. I'm using them on our racecar.

Make sure to tighten the ring and fully get a seal on the fuel tank....I guess mine didn't seal all the way.....was filling up and gas cane pouring out all over the ground....lovely!

it will make it a pain in arse! The reason is the fuel will be right up to the top and when connecting all the lines your hands will be submerged in gas and it also makes the bucket float in your hands.

Make sure to tighten the ring and fully get a seal on the fuel tank....I guess mine didn't seal all the way.....was filling up and gas came pouring out all over the ground....lovely!

Is there any concern not using a submersible fuel line hose? Napa has one that resists e85. napa H315. It's pricey! $26/foot

Also, I tighten the ring...gas came out when I jacked up the car, righted it again and gas still can or....you really need to smack this thing..I broke metal tabs doing this.....I suggest getting a new seal when doing this.
