Be sure to put the clip back in place:

Next up was EGR delete. I took off the intake and EGR to clean up the intake of soot, and ultimately remove the EGR system. This is the level of soot buildup in the intake:

Removing the donor's twisted pair wires (tan wires) from the ALDL port:

Removing the twisted pair (tan wires) from the C100 plug, which is normally located under the fuse block in the engine bay:

In the same fashion, I removed the dark blue wire from the C100 plug which is for the glow plug light on the cluster:

I then removed the same dark blue wire from the plug at the back of the dash cluster:

Remove the purple wire from the C100 plug for the tap shifter:

Undo the tap shfit harness under the steering column:

Can't find the pictures of removing the other wires for the shifter...

I ordred a 3" x 24" rod of plastic from McMaster-Carr:

Plan to cut it down for the body mounts. I'm going to install a 2" lift all around, initially. I will possibly cut these 2" pucks down to the tapered lift, once the swap is completed...

My oil pan on the LBZ looks to be leaking pretty heavily. I'll take it apart and clean it, and reseal it:

The oil pressure sensor is also leaking, but I'll replace it at a later date. The pressure gauge reads correctly, so I'll just do it later on...

Begin the process of removing the pan, starter out. Can see some wetness behind the starter as well:

With the transmission off, this is hard to see, but the rear main seal was dry as a bone and not leaking anything:

See more of the oil leak:

Remove the bolts on the upper oil pan (this is how I did it without removing the flywheel):

I didn't take any pictures of fully removing the oil pans and cleaning them up... Not sure why, but it was pretty messy. I re-did the gasket on both the upper and lower oil pans. It was clear that they were both leaking, so I'm glad this is done now.
