It sure does. I recall years and years ago helping my Father and uncle remove a motor out of a mustang, I think it was a 66. Anyway they were trying to pull it but it was stuck. If I recall right they forgot the transmissions mounts or something to that effect.

Just reminded me of when I went to sell the tranny from the 41 Chrysler.....could not find why it was stuck to the motor no matter where we looked. Finally found it somewhere. I woulda gave them both for free rather than go thru that...I was going crazy...ha...Engine was already spoken for though...damn...

In the mid 70's I let a guy use my garage to change a TH350 in his car. He couldn't get it to budge. I asked him repeatedly if he had removed the 2 bolts on the very top of the trans bell. YUP I got them. So I gave him a big pry bar and SNAP, out came the trans, minus the top of the bell, along with gallons of fluid. He had forgotten to remove the converter to flex plate bolts too. That was the LAST time anyone ever worked on their car in any of my garages, unless I was directly involved.

Getting the engine back will prompt you to finish the hood, so you can drop the new mill in the chassis and not have it on a stand, in your way... DAMN, I wish I could insert the Pokey stick here...
I understand, but he moved there to Grass Valley from Fremont California. Fremont is out home town he was born in 53, before Fremont was formed in 1956 (I was born in 58.) Fremont was made up of 5 towns, one of them being Centerville. So in Fremont it's still the "Centerville District" thus a lot of businesses there including his have Centerville in their name. So it was wild that he moved to Grass Valley and finds out it was once called Centerville!

WOW, we have spring weather this weekend, due to the wind from the southwest coast.
I was out shoveling off the last of the snow from my car trailer deck and scheming how to build a rock/salt shield on the front. I want it removable and in 2 pieces to be carried in the back of the truck, when not in use. I'd LOVE to make it out of aluminum, but I suck at tig welding that stuff. I'm thinking 3/4-1" conduit for the frame and aluminum skin over that...

Hope you soak some cold outta them bones! And hope the car haul went alright. Its about time to change lawnmower oil here.

Anvil Grandpa made aluminum boats and all his kids could buck rivets. So it is my heritage speaking when I say: Rivets. Cheap.

Me wants to ask if you ever wanted to dabble in fiberglass. But not picturing the right shape probably.

It's been nice here for weeks, and today it's raining, crap! The college baseball team had two games today, just down the street from me I was planning on going. Hopefully tomorrows game will be on.
