So I realized what I did as I read your post. I didn't have the wheels on, but I DID put the retaining screw in.......tight. Tight enough to cause it to wobble. All is good.Seeing how you did the transplant I'll assume the old rotors, besides being rusted, have been pitched so just confirming that it's the new rotors and not something else. As I'll assume that they were torqued down and the lugs didn't bottom out, the calipers and parking brake were fully seated. If you can get the new rotors on a known flat surface to check on some surface measurements for flatness and being square.
I know as this may seem obvious for someone who just did a engine swap and brakes but it may help others who don't have the experience yet, good luck on getting it resolved.
Yeah, I'm glad you mentioned putting the wheels on. That made it click with me. Been a few years since I've done this on this type of scale and just looked right over it.Happy about the brake rotors, I get credit for being smart at times and just admit I've I've also made a lot of mistakes to be smart. Engine running already and sounds good!
Thanks! That's the goal is to just give some insight to some of this stuff and hopefully help someone out in the future who needs it.I'm learning a trunkful of information based on your hard work & taking the time to document things on this Forum. Many thanks.
You're making excellent progress.
