That was enough for him. And for the record, it wasn't as cold as he makes it look.

Nice teardown! I like the progress. The springs look relatively clean! That OFA is a confirmed W-body stock style. This thread has just reminded me that I have a Series 1 L67 with the oil cooler lines... And an oil cooling radiator... And a separate trans cooler... Uh oh..

I couldn't help but wonder if you have much use for the coolant temp sensor. Perhaps you'd like to send it over to me? I love those things. They're like hard drives - you just can't get enough.

Now, I actually plan to use a gasoline engine on my can shaker. As soon as I get the space cleared up, I'm welding the 3100 shortblock to something and spinning it! It just has to happen. Not only was that mentioned, but also Bill found a use for the pink elephant. This has just made my day. Thanks, guys!

You know Dan.. I'm not sure I believe you about the cold. The weather channel hasn't been giving WI a warm, sunny forecast lately.

Dan, are those photo op'* or are you actually letting him use the impact.

He'* actually doing the work. All I did was break the bolts loose then he used the air ratchet. He lasted a while then it started getting heavy. I had him put the air hose over his shoulder and that helped.

Much lighter, wont be as loud, and those are small bolts. He did real good, I had to keep reminding him to not wrap his hand in a way that might pinch his hand.

This is a great thread. Nice to see safety glasses and gloves in use. However; why have a tripping hazard on the floor. Looks like he'* gonna take a header from the lumber on the floor as he heads to the work bench!

Great stuff Dan!

That board is there as a tire stop when I back in to the shop. Had to double it up because my wife drove right over it and hit the work bench.
