Damn you and your friend!

I need to get to work. Still waiting on a hoist so there's only so much I can actually do right now... But it's getting there at least. Forecast of rain for tomorrow don't help any :(

Monday is cold though, and hopefully I'll have a way to pull the engine by then...


Anyway, nice work man, take the opportunity to clean things up in there!

you know me. I vowed to not put a single old (for replacable/wear items) or dirty thing back in this car.

I refuse to. Tomorrow I think Im going to roll itout and start degreasing pressure washing it. Then hit it with polishing compound and a small buffer I have (it has this wierd film on the paint that looks like ass that is hard as hell to get off)

Is there anything that doesn't make you want to do something else?

I wanted to keep it on track too

so where's the cam position sensor on the 850 engine, I noticed the mount for it on a 960 motor is blocked off. And if possible could you get pictures of the timing belt gears and tensioner with the belt on them?

This is what I mean:

Can't wait to see it all back together cause I know it's gonna be clean and fast. I'm suprised someone hasn't added a caption yet to that picture of you and the oil spilling out of the motor.

Chris you heartless bastard, you just made me snarf my drink everywhere

I'm getting in a pre-emptive "awesome work" here...pre-emptive because there's nothing that awesome about pulling an engine, but I'm doing it because I have the feeling that once it's back in, no amount of 'awesomes' will cover it.

cheers
