Did you have to remove your radiator support to remove the engine? I'm rebuilding mine this fall but don't know how to tilt the engine the required 45 degrees to clear the sub-frame. Maybe you raised the frame (if so, by how much?). Also, what's your garage ceiling height. Don't know if mine is high enough and I can't go outside to do it (HOA regulations!)

Remove the bonnet to make life much easier.

You are going to need about 8' or better overhead clearance unless you cut the radiator cross piece.

You have to remove the hood.
Standard garage height is enough.
You must remove the radiator, which is so easy, just disconnect the hoses and lift up.

I also removed the manifold, head, alternator and power steering pump but it was not needed.

Going back in, i only had the radiator and the fan not installed. Everything else was in. Will post few pictures later.
I have to take the manifold out again as I have leak from the manifold bolts 5 and 6.

May 21st, 2014 update

My 8 year old daughter started the car, first one to crank the rebuild engine and it started.
Mechanically run fun, no ticking, no knocking which used to be the case.
I do have leak from manifold studs, 5 and 6 I think.
I couldn't start the engine the next day. I think it was because the intake\manifold was flooded with coolant.

Next is to take the manifold out, apply sealant on the studs and tighten them properly.
Few days delay but at least I know the bottom end is good.

Few pictures attached.

you should not remove the studs , there is no reason for it , now see if you can remove them and seal them with permatex num 2 .

Forgive me if you have already answered this question, did you rebuild your carburetors or send them out to be rebuilt?

I sent them for rebuild, full rebuild by someone in Toronto area. i didn't want to touch them myself due to the number of components and not having bench to test them. carb one was missing idle needle, something i might not have noticed myself. I'm glad I didn't do them.

Thanks. The more I think about it the more I think I better send them out. My brother got a quote for me for $300 to do both. That is probably money well spent.
