Hey guys, what's up? I took the EA82T engine out of my 1986 5 speed manual (push button 4WD) Turbo XT and put it into an 85' push button 4WD Automaic wagon, it went in ok, but there are a few differences between the engines like the PS pumpsits differently, and the wiring harness was not long enough to reach the side of the engine (the XT's harness sits in the center back of the engine) so I extended the harness, and it reaches, and hopefully it will work.

So I guess my question would be, can I just switch out the PS hoses from the rack, to the pump? Is there a way to pull just the hoses?

This is about the only thing that is stopping me from going any further, well, and the 36 degree weather, too. So I would like to get this resolved asap. Oher than that, it seems to be OK.

Why not just use the intake (with all the wiring going across the engine) and power steering pump off the 85 wagon engine.

oops! Yeah, that would have been the easier way, but who likes the easy way? (obviously not me) lol I think I can rig it up, or just not hook the lines up, who needs power steering anyway? I AM KIDDING!!
