Years ago I did a '76 Eldorado and it took hour guys to pull the hood, no kidding!
|Today 09:08 PM|
There are a whole lot of patch panels in that hood.

Decided I had enough motivation and got the hood off of the caddy in preparation for pulling the motor. It was a bit of a chore for one man, even one as manly as me, but I got it done.
The one above is just after I had the hinge bolts off.
A little more progress.
Creative use of the cherry picker to keep it from sliding too far forward.
Almost all the way off.
There it sits. Tires and wheels are holding it in place. Plus it is kinda of wedged against the wall.
All so I can get access to this 472 cubic inch bundle of problems, work, and wonder. Still trying to figure out which direction I want to go with the motor. And also not sure how I want to pull it, all in one go, or separate engine and tranny. But either way I had to get the hood off.

Worked a little on my truck,Last night adjusted valves for a little more top end ,
But I did not do this ,Honest Officer

Aired up my truck tires. Really need a better air hose, told santa about that already. The flexzilla that TSC carries would be nice.
Later I may work on the caddy getting the motor ready to pull. Still debating how to do the pull. Want to pull the tranny too because it needs at least a replacement seal on the back. I have a plan to pull the tranny and motor at the same time. What I would do is pull the caddy just outside the garage and then pull them together. If I leave it in the garage before I pull it, I will do them separately. But either way I want to pull the car out and organize my garage.
I need to make either a lifting plate or engine leveler before I pull the motor. So I might work on that some either tonight or this weekend.
