Wow havent updated this in quite awhile, my brother and I have had quite a few ups and downs with the car since the last post. We had to replace the headgasket again because the head bolts never got torqued down properly before the engine fired for the first time, this resulted in water in the oil. I also discover there was no oil pressure relief valve! Only the spring was there! So far I havent noticed any bad oil pressure readings but Im still holding my breath. My two biggest problems right now is that the throttle cable seems too short. Once the cable is layed into the throttle bracket it pulls it open like 3/4 of the way. I found this out when the first time the engine fired (remember the head bolts?) and the engine screamed to 5k. Secondly we seemed to have lost our elect. diagram book and I need to find a source of switch 12v for the engine harness to use.

Cliff notes
Need source of switched 12v for engine harness
throttle cable too short?

Thanks for all the help guys. Every day we get one step closer and the light at the end of the tunnel is on the horizon.

I just picked up a 1993 9k engine, if that oil check valve will work for you it's yours for free.
Any chance you have a throttle cable for a TCS car installed in there? That's the only one I know to be shorter (pivot point for the pedal is also different for a TCS car and does not give enough "throw" to use full range of a manual throttle)

I'd be able to check if the car came from factory with tcs thru the VIN correct? But I don't think that's the issue as it reached fine when the original motor was in there

to find switched 12v just do trial and error poking wires/pins with a $5 test light.

you can lengthen throttle cable using a swaging tool from home depot. just crimp on additional cable (which home depot sells cable in various thicknesses and crimps). I was able to keep my TCS throttle cable when I deleted TCS by doing that.

And you now never get a "wide open throttle" because the pivot point is higher on the tcs pedal assembly and cannot provide sufficient throw to run through the full range of the throttle valve. NBD, but you're leaving quite a bit of performance on the table
