Engine is Out!

My dad and I got the engine out today! It ended up taking much longer than we thought, it's a really tight fit and we had to dismantle all the motor mounts and tilt the engine and transmission back and forth to remove axles and avoid the A/C compressor lines.

I got to borrow my neighbors engine hoist which made things really nice and easy. I also got to use my new jack stands I got for my birthday, which made me feel like I'm doing this the proper way.

Next on my list: remove the muffler and gas tank, then remove the transmission and start assembling my motor couplings. I also need a new front engine mount as we ended up breaking it by accident.
