Antifreeze, Valucraft 550162, $7.99

Subtotal: $202.90
Total: $219.64

How To:
1. Plan on giving yourself two days, Awake at 6am, Get called into work because your coworkers are incompetent, wait around for your check for a while, It'* now 5pm.
2. Hurry to AutoZone, Buy parts, Forget antifreeze. Go back for it.
3. Remove LF wheel.
4. Drain Coolant. Petcock is in lower left corner of radiator.
5. Drain Oil. Plug is on the bottom of the engine.
6. Reinstall Engine lift points. Curse yourself for removing them.
7. Roll engine lift to driveway, Consider cementing yard to make this easier.
8. Lift engine a slight amount.
9. Remove all bolts from Torque-Axis Mount, A nut and two bolts to the engine, Four bolts to the body, And the center bolt. Screw around with that mount for a while. Remember that you own an FSM. Read FSM. Attempt to lift engine until Power Steering Res touches STB. Remove two upper bolts from Front Transmission Mount, Consider where the third bolt disappeared to. Lift engine until Power Steering Res touches STB. Remove mount easily.
10. Go inside to get warm, It'* 27*F outside and now 9pm.
11. Remove Flywheel Cover and Oil Pan.
12. Remove center harmonic balancer bolt, Try that way that padgett was talking about. Put wrench on bolt, set against frame rail, crank engine. Yeah, You did that wrong. Consider looking up directions later. Pay $5 to 15yo sister to hold a screwdriver in the flywheel. Put socket, rachet, and cheater bar on bolt. Crack bolt loose quicker than you expected. Headlight + Already fractured rib = Pain. Go inside. Realize it'* 25*F and midnight.

:End Day 1:

:Start Day 2:
1. Set goals low, aim to have disassembly done by dark. Class from 8-12.
2. Go to NAPA to get three 1/4"-28*2.5" bolts to get the harmonic off. Pull harmonic easily.
3. Remove WP pulley.
4. Attempt to remove front cover. Find that it'* stuck on the Heater Outlet Pipe, Get pissed.
5. Get called in to work. Call owner to mention how inept management is. Find that owner agrees. There may be something here.
6. Get home, 10pm. Easily remove pipe and front cover.
7. Find that it'* 10:30pm, 40*F outside and you don't like cold. Go inside.
8. Fabricate replacement Wheelhouse Splash Sheilds from a pair of Fiskars Rotary Cutting Mats.
:End Day 2:
