Started about two hours ago. All that is left is
Torque axis bolts
Rear exhaust bolts
Torque converter to flexplate/flywheel bolts
Transmission bolts.

Now..I have everything else off/out that needs to be done. The rear hiddien transmission bolt is out. One of the front bolts (to find size for engine stand bolts) is out. Fluids are drained and I'm rocking and rolling.

I figure in about two more hours or less..It'll be on the stand.

So many of us don't visit P&B, that'* the only reason I basically put a duplicate thread in Gen.

I'm doing so much and wanted to see/check it all out before building it back up. Cam bearings should be going in..which means the whole lower end comes apart.

I turned the engine partially and scrubbed both sides, came pretty clean all things considered.

Here'* how it looks now. The real pics are in P&B
