Late afternoon...Waiting...

Finally shows at 6:30, to late to install, will have to sit in the rain till morning. Shipper put the engine pallet on a standard pallet so first thing is to slide it off the standard pallet.

Morning. Still drizzling... Slide it off the standard pallet, removed sides and positioned the hoist.

Wife had a good idea, just drape the entire thing with plastic.

Off the engine pallet.

First thing, mount the tranny.

Having a hard time mounting the tranny. Had to "pull" them together with the mounting bolts. Worried about using force so I removed the tranny and checked everything out. All looked good so back together they went. This time it went on easier. I did have to "shade tree" realign the clutch, probably moved in shipping.

Tranny installed.

Here we go... My plan is to install the tranny top before final bolt down.


 Installed! Now for the rest of the crap...
