Greasy Hands Garage

1/16/2022 – Today was a good, long day in the shop. The goal for the day was to have the engine, transmission and sub-frame secure in the car. Before that was started, the bolt holes for the valve covers needed to be cleaned out so that was completed before anyone else arrived.

Engine is back!


12/8/2021 – Taking advantage of the remaining warm weather, I pushed the transmission out onto the shop approach for cleaning. It was quite oily from various leaks from assorted places like valve covers, etc. It was also oily inside the bell housing but I don’t know why.

12/2/2021 – Today I spent an hour plus in the shop just so I would not forget where it is. While there, some more parts were cleaned and painted. The oil pan flange was straightened to remove some of the distortion caused by over tightening the bolts to eliminate leaks.

12/1/2021 – Today the oil pan, oil pickup tube and oil pickup tube pan were removed. Also, the small dirt cover on the front of the engine that is also the slave cylinder mounting hole. Everything was removed and cleaned except the fasteners. They will be cleaned and kept separate for what I hope is an easy reinstallation.
