HOW TO GET field value FROM selected features INTO field of a different feature class

Okay, so.. I created this model to:

  1. select by location of one feature class to another.

  2. iterate through the selected features of the second feature class

  3. obtain the value from a field

  4. calculate the field in the selecting feature class with the value from the selected feature class

Problem:

  1. Iterator goes through each selected row to obtain the value

  2. There are 34000 rows selected

  3. A calculation is being done as each row value is found

  4. The process it taking forever

  5. It would be faster to just do a spatial join in ArcMap

  6. Then calculate the field I want the values in

Solution:
I am looking for some solution that would be using Modelbuilder.
Any help would be appreciated.
