Engine Removal and Cleanup

5-7-2009 to 7-3-2009

The oil pan leak is getting worse and I really want to get the crap out of the engine so it is time to do an engine pull. The game plan is to remove the engine, clean and paint the engine bay, clean the engine inside and out, replace a boatload of gaskets, reinstall everything, and have the engine start on the first crank. This is a pretty big project so I will split it over several pages.
