Ya, I just phoned the rebuild shop and they don't need the front end or even the flex plate.
They say that the engine is so well balanced that they don't have to balance it after the rebuild, so shouldn't need the harmonic balancer.
I am leaning now towards waiting to ship it out for rebuild until I get back at the end of May. That way I'm here for both the shipping and the return.
It will also give Victor more time to save up cause he knows he won't be driving it until it'* paid for.
Doing most of the work ourselves is saving a bundle and teaching us both a lot about it.
Bill how much SC oil does the M62 hold, exactly by the book.
My old coupler was in perfect shape with only 25 K miles on it. Victor got a deal on that one.
