Engine came out without a hitch. Had to remove the drive shaft and transmission which proved to be very tight. the 6 cylinder leaves no space for moving things around.
Engine bay looks better, transmission is hanging in a pool of it own fluid.
Both go to the shop March 3rd (tomorrow) to get renewed. Now the task at hand is to dismantle the entire car and get the body off the frame to get the frame painted, suspension done and the driveline back in place.
