Between massive overtime, and the high temp and humidity outside, I didn't manage to get the motor out- until today. Wanted to pull the motor and trans at the same time, but I couldn't get the get the reach over the hood to clear all obstacles. Trans will be an easy drop. I have all the cross member bolts out. Just need to jack trans up a few inches, knock out cross member, and drop trans. First things first though, I need to get buddy with truck over to get motor to shop. My buddy loaned me the load leveler for the motor as seen in picture. That is nice. You can crank handle at different stages of pulling motor to shift angle of motor to clear obstructions. Was a bit of a pain. Couldn't get hold of anybody to help pull motor,so it was pretty interesting. Thank god for long arms. Barely cleared body with motor. Thought I would have to yank pan.
