That was loads of fun... I removed both top bolts from the passenger side, since the oil cooler and brake booster make removing the driver side bolt (among other things) IMPOSSIBLE from that side. Remove anything intrusive that's mounted along the firewall for clearance and you'll be able to reach it with a long, thin breaker bar. I had to pull some rubber hoses and small mount brackets that my bar kept bumping into.



Wanted

I'm glad it actually worked though, good to know if I ever need to change my engine again. Keep me posted as to how it goes back in, as mine is going back in too, and youre a head of me now!

Car is being towed away soon, I'm going for the differential this afternoon and probably going back next weekend or any day that doesn't conflict with work or leave me in the dark (car is almost an hour away from where I live). Many parts still available, I want to see them put to good use.

milktoast: vent tube and window regulators are still available, do you still need them?

And keep the money for your rent, as I'll never see a dime from parts off MY car.

Please don't be petty. I'd rather not drag personal matters into a public thread, but you made me the middle man and effectively abandoned the car when you blew up at Dave and left the property. You've had a LONG time to part that car out. You could have worked something out with Dave to cover shipping and made 100% profit, without my involvement. Last I checked, we were even as you saw it. I told you to keep the parts you listed on my eBay account and sell them yourself. Instead you dropped them off at my house, along with other random junk I didn't ask for. Do you want any of it back? Perhaps I'll kick down some money to fund getting you out of California, since you can't stand it here.
