OK......I have been working on peeling wiring back....coilpack now off and first tensioner....

JY really knows how to strip a motor I am going to have to reuse a virtual ton of stuff.....

the saga continues.....

Here I was thinking this would be a 8 to 10 hour job!! I guess for some it might....but with all there is to switch over I don't see how.

yes that was one of the first things I did as I had the pan off from a few weeks ago when I had looked at the bottom end. I broke the starter solenoid after already removing the only two wires needed to remove it. stupid me.
