Hello truck mount forum I’m new to the truck mounts getting rid of portables and just bought a used 2010 Chevy express van with the whole setup except the motor was bad with the truck mount.
but was a good deal came with hoses, wands, and a nice rotovac. Already bought exact same engine and year it’s a 2012 boxer 323 brand new still in the box with 1 year warranty. Started taking apart the truck mount the other day and the hydramster front plate took 2 hours and before I get in deep just seeing if there is anything I should be cautious with while doing the swap? Are there any special tools needed? It just looked pretty cut and dry the only thing that I’m not sure is the coupler I know when I did my wave runner its a similar concept and the engine had to be shimmed perfectly. If anyone has done this before there is not too much info on the net for this job.

Typically they shim the blower instead of the engine. But yes it is pretty tight tolerances.
