Too many choices. Better stick with the plan.

As you can see I left the trans in the car this will be a first for me I've never put an engine in with a manual trans in place.

I pick door number three, Monte.

So, stop your yapping and stick it in already.

Sorry, I got that line from the wife.

And make sure you don’t hear “That’s not it” during insertion.

Good job Reno!

I've lost some days on the '63, as today marked our 5th day that we had no power! This afternoon, it finally came back on.

We did "ok" but you really miss electricity when it's not there.

How far did you get?

Pat

FYI if you stab a engine in with the trans in place. The motor mounts need to be on the frame not the engine so you can just slide it on to the input shaft
