Embarrassing adversity, thy name is engine and subframe removal.
It only took us six hours or so to remove the drivetrain and front subframe from the `76 with all the efficiency of four monkeys doing algebra......in Chinese. Seriously, don't try this at home.
After a little blessing from the pastor of the Church of Dan, we finally got it done.
Now, time for a little cleanup and a few new gaskets before it goes into the 1600. Jay and I also made some headway on the 1600's engine bay, which has now been stripped and painted.
