Wow this build is really coming along. I cant believe that you put the engine and transmission in from above WITH the rad support bolted in! How hard was that to do?

Was not to hard. Just took me man handling the motor while another person (my wife) to lower the cherry picker. It must have been the way I had attached the lift points to have it at the level and angle it was. Took about 30 min to drop it in.

Edit: And looking back on it, I should have connected up the wiring for the alt and the starter and had that wire routed the way it should be before dropping in also. Now I have to work by feel to hook up the starter wires and also figure the best way to route the Alt.
