|December 31, 2009 - Because I was tired of wiring, and the engine was sitting right beside the car, I decided it was time to stick it in!|
Janel came to help, as there's no way I could have done this myself. The MG is sitting sideways across the end of the garage, so first we had to carefully sneak the suspended engine and transmission around the front of the car, then push the crane sideways to feed the engine into the chassis.
It was a bit of a tight fit. Pulling the complete shifter out would have helped, but with some careful tilt/move/tilt/move we were able to wiggle the engine in to place. Well, almost.
Janel likes to be around for the big dramatic moments. Almost exactly a year ago, she was helping me hollow out the engine bay and pull the dash.
