For the first time in a year or so I got under a stang to work. I could only find one jack stand, so only one side of the car was jacked up. Man, I forgot how little clearance there is. I had to drop the dual exhaust, disconnect the e-brake cables, and drop the crossmember from beneath the trans in order to be ready to pull the engine tomorrow. There was barely room to grab wrenches off the floor, maneuver the air rachet into position, etc. The underside was covered in either oil or trans fluid, which made it totallyi gross to work on. Had about three panic attacks when it seemed I could not get out from under the car, or couldn't move my body into position to reach a tool or access a bolt. Claustophobia!!! I think I am getting too old for this sort of work. I need a lift! (I guess that extra 20 lbs gained over the past 5 years is having an effect!) It was not a pleasant hour under the car. I have something like 1,000 feet of shop space, but the only free space to work is a narrow area which about a foot on one side of the car and 18 inches on the other. ugh. I think tomorrow I'll have the car's owner get underneath to pull the crossmember bolts, now that I have the nuts off adn the trans supported with a floor jack. Meanwhile, the replacement engine is looking very very nice. I polished all the hose clamps, have new stainless or ARP hardware, fresh paint everywhere, new hoses, plug wires. finned valve covers, alum. intake. The carb needs calibrating, so when I do that I will also polish what I can on the buffing wheel. Hopefully it will be running Sunday.
