SOURCE: how to put on ignition switch on a '88 mazda b2200

If you mean actually replacing the ignition switch on the vehicle with a locking column. You need to do this. Dicconnect the battery, remove the lower panel of the dash if there is any. There is a bolt on the steering column near the fire wall on most vehicles, remove this bolt, it will release the spline on the steering column. Disconnect all wiring going to the column, unbolt the column from the dash support. Remove the column from the truck, on the ignition switch you will see where the two shear bolts screw the assembly together, center punch the center of each bolt. Now drill the bolt with a 1/8" drill about 1/4" to 3/8" deep. Now use a 3/8" drill and drill out the shear head until it comes off the bolt. You can now remove the switch assembly from the column. The new assembly should come with new shear off bolts so when you bolt it in place when tightned they will break off rendering it tamperproof again. Most vehicles are designed like this now to stop theft. Check the column for operation before reinstalling it in the reverse of above. You just want to make sure the key locks and unlocks the column before reinstalling in the vehicle. You may want to do this before you totally tighten the bolts and break them off permanently. Good luck, RAC

Thermostat

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

If the replacement thermostat is equipped with a &inch;jiggle pin&inch;, the pin must be install facing upwards toward the top of the engine (12 o'clock), and should be on the side facing the water outlet. When installing the thermostat gasket, the seal print side should face the cylinder head.
2.2L Engine
See Figure 1
  1. Drain enough coolant to bring the coolant level down below the thermostat housing. the thermostat housing is located on the left front side of the cylinder block.


CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethelyne glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Disconnect the temperature sending unit wire.
  2. Remove the coolant outlet elbow.
  3. If so equipped, position the vacuum control valve out of the way. The vacuum control valve is not used on California trucks.
  4. Disconnect the coolant by-pass hose from the thermostat housing.
  5. Remove the thermostat and housing from the engine.
  6. Note the position of the jiggle pin and remove the thermostat from the housing.
  7. Remove all gasket material from the parts.

Fig. 1: Thermostat installation

To install:

  1. Position the thermostat in the housing with the jiggle pin up. Coat a new gasket with sealer and install it on the thermostat housing.
  2. Install the thermostat housing using a new gasket with water resistant sealer. Tighten the bolts to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-25 Nm).
  3. Install the coolant outlet elbow and vacuum control valve (if equipped).
  4. Connect the by-pass and radiator hoses.
  5. Connect the temperature sending unit wire.
  6. Fill the cooling system with the proper coolant. Operate the engine and check the coolant lever. Check for leaks.

Hope helps with this (remember rated this).

Mazda engine bad


yes, i believe you could put any engine on your pick-up provided it is the rear wheel type set-up and the engine comes with its own tranny. problem is, if changing the engine mounts, tranny mounts, wiring set-up and exhaust system layout would not be of any problem to you. might as well look for the same mazda engine you have as a replacement to ease installation.
