Anyone know if the AAN driver side motor mount works? or do I have to swap the 4K one on?

So i took some time off the car, (working on it anyways) to help a friend with his project 4000. I was just enjoying driving the 4000 after about a year of getting it up to snuff bodywise.
here it is with its family.
Image

We finished the motor swap in the red 4kQ, some of you may have seen or at least caught wind of this car. This is after it made its 12 hour drive home from bozeman to belleview WA.
Image
and its conversation piece,
Image

Once that was wrapped up, the owner of the red car convinced me it was go time for mine. He flew back in from seattle, while he was en-route i began stripping the bay as we hadnt painted it
at the same time as the rest of the car.
Image


the timing was good i pulled the engine out of the bay just as he was arriving. he began pulling the booster and tucking harnesses through the firewall as i ground out the battery tray and un needed brackets and did the filler and primer on the spots
Image
Image


while that was drying and he was prepping the bay, i sanded and painted the booster and some brackets and things.
Image
Image
Image


I also read the DIY about tensioner rebuilding, and rebuilt the tensioner pulley with a new bearing
Image

then we boothed it up and shot the sealer base and clear
Image


allowing that time to dry, i went through the AAN engine harness and pared out what wasnt needed, as alot of it in on the body harness for the 4000, oil pressure oil temp and coolant temp etc. and re fabric taped the harness. and all the wiring harnesses in the engine compartment. re installed the brakes too.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


Then it was time to stab it. been on the stand for like 2 years lol
Image
Image
Image

went right in no problem. Then started laying harness. From a timeline stand point, this is day 3 or 4 of the swap. And Marc had the hookup with the billet
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

got the harness done as much as i could without getting some other things installed so i switched to power steering. i went with a 1994 audi b4 2.8 pump. pressure is a bit higher, but its been done before on a 4k rack, my shit is nice and tight, so heres hoping :D the 4k supply line was a perfect fit, as was the pump into the bracket.
Image
Image
Image


Went to an implement store where they made me up a cracking good pressure line, i added a few inches so i could tuck it back closer to the motor.
Image


And that brings me to now, i just took my radiator to a shop to have my top hose connector switched to the other side. I primed the motor using a sringe to inject oil into the pump through the oil pressure sender. hit the key and it fired up immediately. Sounds great and got oil pressure right away. parts are inbound to build the exhaust and do the last of the work for the radiator etc.

got some more done last night. did a quick scuff and paint on the alternator. installed the alt and tensioner bracket. used a piece of wire to measure for a belt, if anyone does the same style, a 6 rib 46.3 inch belt is perfect. i told the parts guy it was 46.5 inches and he has 46.3 and 46.8 so i bought both. 46.3 worked so good i didnt even try the other. got the wiring on the alt, and there wasnt any charge light and wouldnt start charging. then i remembered the single connector under passenger headlamp, bam everything works perfect!

not sure if a vid will work but a short vid as well.
