well today i finally rented a hoist,the cruise is comin up soon and ive been being lazy about getting the motor in..its a beautiful day and things went great..pulled the old block and had the motor in and mounted in a record 1hr
i couldnt believe how easy it was to get the shaft lined up and get the motor to sit right.i remember johnhubbets 325,three of us wrestled with it for over 2 hrs just to get it to sit
i just have to hook up the exhaust manifols and cut the firewall hole for the comp plug a little bigger to fit the newer harness though...lookin forward to seeing you all at wasaga!!!
gf was a big help,she wouldnt help out because it was too dirty
so she took a few pics instead..had to do it all myself..
the fan will be converted to an electric after wasaga,and i pulled off the power steering pump and the ac..she should be able to spin pretty freely..and once i get the nos hooked up..that'll be good enough for me..
making fittings for the steering box
gettin everything outta the way..sucks breaking stuff
from pullin out the old one to getting the new one in and fully mounted 1 hr..is that a new record???
well im fallin into a case of beer for the rest of the day..maybe i'll have it running tommorrow..
