so i rented the engine hoist and did removed the motor mounts but i realized that if i lifted the engine without removing the bellhousing i might be able to get those few inches i needed for clearing the oil pan. so i did and everything went as planned, of course i removed all the necessary linkage and bolts for it to be possible. i have to admit it was a bit tuff to work under the car compared to removing the engine completely. i installed everything the way it was and started up the car and sounded fine but i noticed the carb was hissing, or atleast around the carb. i hate to say that i dont remember if it did that before and if its normal. Im 100% sure everything was ok before because i took it to the shop and they did what they had to do for it to pass the smog test, which it did as it should have. just worried i guess. thanks!
