Good thing I'm heading up tonight after work. Because you'd be right if we weren't picking the new motor up tomorrow.

Pete got here in the nick of time to help me find a spring retainer in the top of the toolbox where it landed when the spring compressor lost it'* hold.

We've cleaned parts, prepped many other things and once the motor is back here...it'* go time again.

Stay tuned for a potential new PB on an engine removal.
Sorry to hear Bill, been there myself. Throw a mottor in and one slight little thing can cause a problem. Ya hafta be nice to the cranks thou....

That so totally sux... I remember mine like it was yesterday, and I think it was almost two years ago. and I still only have about 1000 miles on that motor.. maybe.. since then.

I'm sure Bob remembers too, he was with me when she let loose, it pegged on KR twice at cruise about 60 mph and I could hear some slight knock at cruise, on accelleration I couldn't hearing anything and on decel I couldn't hear anything when suddenly she let go.... that'* all she wrote.
Later,
