What do you mean next time?
Thanks for the tip. We were debating on bolting the trans on and then putting it back in. Still not sure on how we are going to proceed. I guess we will find out when I go to dip it in.

|NotReal||I would recommend yanking the trans and mounting it to the engine before installing. Might sound like more work but in the long run you will save 1-2 hours. And next time (as I've been following I believe there will be a next time) yank them out together, as it will save 1-2 house of disassembly as well. The trans is surprisingly lite. But hey it's looking great and good luck.|

Alright. Big news. The engine is reassembled and ready to put back into the car! We drove it up and dropped out off at about midnight last night. It's sitting next to my car just waiting. Next Saturday I should be putting it back into the car. I'm so excited!!

Thanks guys. It's been a long a tough battle with this little car. Lol
I'm glad I re-inspired you to get back at it with yours.
So a mini update. Last Friday we got the timing belt back on. The only issue is that it kept wanting to walk off the cam gears. So we are gonna try again tomorrow night. Hopefully with luck it will be all set and basically ready to shove back into the car. Lol

Tell me about it being a pane! Im used to chevy 350's and Jeep 4.0's in and out in half a day if your decent at it. Not these engines so many more systems and so many more harder to get to spots than that!

|sbc17||83k I think? It's 82 or 83. I was running amsoil thru it. I'm switching to Mobil 1 since I can get it pretty much anywhere.|
