Its good to see that you are paying attention to all the little details before the engine goes back in. I think the rewards will be great

then the left trans mount

then the right trans mount and the mount under the ac bracket, sorry i didnt get pics for some reason. from there i removed the wiring harness and batt cables.

this is one of the main reasons i went ahead with this swap. the trans mount i fabbed on the pass side was too close to the cv. it cought the clamp and popped the boot off. look at the mees it made!

Amazing progress! Don't worry about the grime if you have some good engine degreaser. It'* far less evident to most people than it is to the car owners. I've noticed also that grime helps drive attention to clean engine parts like the SC cover, the intake, etc. Be sure to paint the heads and such.

yeah, noone will notice half of the cleanliness, but I would still know if i skipped anything.

but on the paint, that will be done for sure.

OHH, and the L67 was pulled is under 5 hours. not as good as boosty'* 4 hours on his, but im still proud of the progress.

Don't think about it as "skipping." It'* more like "understanding" the engine and knowing where new dirt will collect anyway. Good time on the engine pull! I'm very impressed. Keep up the awesome documentation!

Looking great. I had a couple helpers and air tools.

You are doing a great job. Is that a newer Impala dogbone mount I spy on the L67 or was that stock?

thank you sir,

i do have air tools, so that definitely helps. but no helpers unfortunately. my "freinds" are always willing to help me take out a case of beer or work on their cars, but never seem to be around when im working on my projects. bastards!

well, close on the dogbone, i got that off a 00' grand prix, same thing. im not using that mount on the p/a. i dont think the core support is strong enough for it. i will use it for the L27 in the 90 gp though. not that it really needs it but its there so, it wont hurt to have an extra.

Do you plan on detailing the engine at all? Clean and paint the block, maybe some split loom wire covering?

I air tools. Glad to see you aren't doing it all by hand. (Although I tend to do most of the reassembly by hand). On the mount..don't toss it, I'm working on a couple of ideas that might have others wanting to pick it up from you.

All in all.. great job. On the painting.. I did 2 coats on my block/heads after cleaning and wish I had taken the time to do a third. My suggestion would be 3-4 and I'd stick to that if I were doing it again.
