Engine out today. What a mess. :? I had a plug for the tranny however, go figure. Just antifreeze was flowing..

Should I bother posting these here? :?

The view to comment ratio is always low here.

Meh no not yet. Today is 'detail the firewall day'... Today is also "tropical storm is banging on my literal door' day.. Figures,I take today off from work... and it rains (To anyone questioning why I have the garage and the car is outside.... it's a lot 'neater' to do clean up, etc outside, I think).

Doh!

Looking Good! Keep posting your progress here for sure. 8) I can't wait to pull the 472 out of my Fairlane, and put in the 521 when it's done. I should be bolting in 150+ more HP......at least I hope so. haha :lol:

I love the nameplate on your garage. :lol:

New pics. Today I managed to sand clean and paint the firewall (forgot a pic, oops). Also undercoated the frame/etc. I sealed up the a/c box panel, and put back the heater motor cover. Tomorrow, the 460 goes in.

My reducer cones (3" to 2.5") also fit into my mufflers.. how exciting. (for lack of other pics, I showed that). :lol:

Well.. I got the firewall painted yesterday (friday).



What an ABORTION today.



I spent all day, physically pulling the 460/c6 from my Elite (it was all unbolted/unwired, etc, I just had to physically hoist it). What a mess! the transmission fluid bug struck bigtime.



Getting it IN the car was fun. I am white trash at it's best.. a combination of a 15# sledge and a craftsman tractor with a plow helped me shove it in.



Spent an hour fighting with the transmission xmember.



Spent 45 minutes with the passenger side header.



An HOUR AND A HALF on the drivers side. Whoever designed these Super Comps needs to be hit off the head with one.



So.. what were the casualties?



1 pre bent tranny line.. kinked near the starter.

My distributor cap. the clear one that made timing a breeze

a few scratches in my jet hotted headers.. I can deal.



tomorrow, I'm going to start putting everything back together... inner fenders/rad support/etc.. then deal with wiring.



The fun never stops.



Oh.. did I mention it rained off and on outside?
