Thanks bro but I'm not rebuilding the engine right now. Engine works like a champ. Just the clutch :)

But if/when I do (given my luck) I'll try and do it myself. I mean after you swap a clutch, the motor is probably just as complicated/PITA!!

I can't remember which side was the PITA, think it was passenger side. Driver's came out like a cinch IIRC.

LOL.

Clutch/flywheel installed and transmission is on and bolted back up. Was too exhausted to re-install everything else.

Best tip though... if you're going to be dropping the tranny GET AN ENGINE HOIST!!!! It will hold the tranny up into place while you pop in in the block. I used a hoist and heavy-duty ratchet strap from my motorcycle to connect and get it up. Racthet has a big hook that fits though loop on the top of the tranny.

I just hope I got the bellhousing bolts right, I made a diagram and labeled hte bolts but might've gotten some mixed up....

I'm sure you got it right..We didn't even make a diagram when we did ours (bad idea) and we managed to get it all back together..Had a couple extra bolts though..lol But the car is still running and nothing has fallen off.

The plan for friday is we're gonna drop the kids off at my parents house in monrovia then head over to poolesville if you're there and if you still need the help. Or if you're not there but your dad is we could get something done. I don't even know what time we're dropping the kids off yet. I assume you'll be off around 5?

Ok Well I talked to my mom and she said not to drop the kids off till after lunch time. So it probably wouldn't be till afternoon anyhow. Hopefully we can get the car on the road. Are you planning on heading to carlisle that night if it gets done or on saturday? If you're planning on going that night then maybe we can take the cars to the car wash and get them cleaned up too. I know Josh is gonna want to clean the heck outta his car.
