I don't recall for sure, capacities are in Techinfo. Count on 1/3 for the pan drop.

That seal? That'* what happened to my 95.

I can't remember all my symptoms now. Get the motor going, and get out and drive that thing. You'll know what to expect, so you'll get the symptoms right away. Mine is posted around here somewhere. Maybe in my PIF topic? Syptoms and diagnosis. I think I was intermittently missing 2nd gear and TCC lockup in OD. Seal pieces were found in my pan.

(remember the common modes of failure are quite different between the 60 and 65 in most cases)

photobucket pics aren't loading for me right now, but if there is a tranny failure in the future, is it even worth touching anymore?

:( Oh that'* not good news. Better call the wrecker tomorrow and haul what'* left away.


Nahhhhh

I don't think that'* a seal. It'* hard plastic like from an electrical retainer.

It drove fine before with no hint of transmission problems.

We're going to pull the engine out of the car tomorrow. Then strip it down to get ready to ship next week.
Does anyone know what the assembled block with heads weigh I wonder if I could load it into the back of the Jeep.

I could move my long block around by my self, rolling it onto a side or dragging the pallate. I'd think you could put it in the back of a jeep no problem with the help of a strong friend.

heads weight about 75lbs while the short block is close to 150 I'm guessing. My dad and I were able to lift a short block into my trunk.

Just found out that you can't take off the water pump pulley without removing that engine mount. Dumb design!

The LIM bolts are almost finger tight.

Ya, gone too far already to back down now.
In for a penny, in for a pound, as the old expression goes. :P

Besides, it'* a learning excersize.

Why are you removing the accessory bracket, water pump, or anything else before you pull the motor out?

Get it on a stand and do it right.

Because I only have so much time and I'm doing whatever I can while my other half sleeps in his bed.

I know working on it on a stand is so much simpler.

Just a comment about having to remove that support if you have to change your water pump.
S2'* don't have to do that.

Oh ya that'* what the early S2'* had to do... ........must have been a carry over until they finally smartened up cause no supports have to come off to change anything on mine. :P
