Need to move it out to the position you see in the picture for clearance and that means getting out the grinder. Continue reading
Tonight I went and borrowed Kevin’s engine lift – again! The original plan was to just lift it up so I could swap engine mounts but decided to remove the whole thing a do a few other things I have been putting off. It was also going to be easier for me to do with the engine out.

Seems to work and almost better than I expected. Continue reading
