How many miles are on the engine? I think the bottom end is the same between '93 and '96. If the miles are low enough I might be interested in the LQ1 in the future should you be looking to get rid of it.

Is that 1st photo the cat from under the car?

No, Jim’s just being an ass. That probably came off of one his trashy-assed girlfriends’ car.

Yeah, it's not a fun job.  I had the radiator and fans out of my International when I changed mine out.  It was alot easier as I used a really long extension and just went thru the rad support and lower bumper opening to get access to the bolts.  

The later LQ1's starting in 96 I believe moved the packs and module up topside.  Much nicer.

Again, those packs with the white numbered firing order are unobtainable now.  It took me a very long time to find an NOS set.

The coils checked good so I’m going to reuse them. I just picked up an ignition module that I paid way too much for so we’ll see what happens.

I have the engine and trans out of this car now. It’s available for sale if anyone is interested. I may put it on eBay eventually.

Are you planning a rebuild on that L67? Seems to be very high in miles. Given how abused the rest of the car is I doubt they took good care of the engine.

Of course not. I’m planning a complete overhaul and upgrade to the L67/4T65. 
 

I will say though that it still runs strong af. It just leaks all of its fluids from every possible leak point. The trans is a tad lazy though.

I haven’t looked too far into this yet, does anyone have any good insight on what I’m going to be up against on motor mounts? I figure the trans side mount will interchange no problem, I’m concerned about the lower engine side mounts. Not concerned about the uppers, those will be easy to fab/modify.

^ No big mystery there......

1st gen Regal L27 engine mounts, all  1st gen Regals fitted with the L27 made use only a single dogbone. The powertrain does not tilt.

I really dread removing the L67 from the Pontiac. That drivetrain is greasier than family night at Gino’s pizzeria in Youngstown, OH.

Thanks. I have been studying the engine mount situation since I made that post earlier today. I think I have it basically figured out at this point. I think I’m going to have everything I need already to bolt it in place. I’ll be sure to outline exactly what I did when I get to that point.

The replacement mounts can be had almost anywhere, you'll need the front & rear engine bracket from a 1st gen Regal (or likewise) to support the engine.

The 2nd gen configuration makes use of 2 dogbones seeing as there is a single mount under the engine.

 

Part # 3 & 4

Thanks, I appreciate your input.

Edit: This engine I'm using is a Series II 3800. There were significant differences between the Series I and Series II engines. The 1st gen Regals woulda had a Series I engine. Are the motor mount locations the same on both blocks? I know for a fact there were multiple casting differences between the two engines, especially along the oil pan rail area on the block.
