nicely done

I am just wrapping up my first engine drop-also a 3.2 (only half shafts left to install and then fill it with oil). My job was not so neat...had to take off the blower to get clearance.

One thing I did you may consider: I took off the mustache bar and tinware, cleaned, and painted with a silver-gray krylon. It lightens up the engine bay, makes things much easier to see, and oil leaks will show up much faster on the underside. Now when I drop something in the engine bay, it is much easier to spot and retrieve. Before it was all a black hole. I should have removed and painted the engine shroud, too....next time.

Oh yeah......replace the fuel filter when the motor is out....much easier! Use some large crescent wrenches to unscrew it. I also installed new rear shocks with the motor out....again much easier.
