Finally a new blog post!:) Work on the car was a bit slow in the last three months, but far from no progress at all! The engine and transmission had to get out of the chassis.
Since it wasn’t economical to rent an engine hoist I acutally purchased one, even though I’m already running low on available space! At least I’ll be using it at least three times more on this car alone!
As the height of my garage wouldn’t be sufficient I dragged the car outside on the side of the road – an image very unfamiliar in Germany. Nobody works on their car on the streets here, and most cars are new, seeing a workshop regularly, anyway!
Had to jack the car in the front and back up and down to jiggle the engine and transmisison out in one piece!
And she’s free!
If you’re wondering why the gear knob is still on the transmission: It was glued in place because the threads where damaged. Didn’t know at the time and was wondering why it wont unscrew.
Engine and transmisson seperated and clutch, pressure plate and flywheel removed.Back in the garage on the engine stand!Empty in here!:)
