  • Hire me guys. First engine swap without adult supervision at 15 with my best friend in the driveway. 85 super dime. Ase a1-9 including g1. Also, I’ve removed many hoods rolling solo. The last four years I’ve been an instructor at a community college teaching auto and light diesel. In have an associates degree in automotive and a book full of other certificates of completion. Been to Vision high tech training in Overland Park kansas. All of my student reviews are awesome and I’m funny as sheet. Anyway the college is closing the diesel program after this semester. So I’ll be free son!! Hit me up and I’ll make you laugh.

  • I find storing hardware in a block of polystyrene or 2" insulating boards also helps be sure to throw away used "stressed" bolts as they'll not torque up correctly twice. Also taking lots of pictures on your phone is a massive help, especially around electrical connectors. Great show guys, thank you

  • Once the radiator is removed I would recommend people cover the codenser with a large piece of cardboard so that it's less likely to get damaged. Can be cut to size. Thumbs up for keeping all bolts and parts well labled and in order of when it was removed. Also taking lots of photos is a good reference for later. Source: Used to be a mechanic.

(2) race car drivers (Petty, Miles). (1) race track, the ring. (3) engines Hemi,LS,Cummins. (3) motorcycles. (2) semi trucks. 4 misc eps. Santa sleigh, quattro system,foxbodys, john deere tractors. (2) deleted eps. and a Redux episode of the RX-7.. ⚡⚡⚡ and now there out of ideas maybe?

  • I always start with removing the battery, then draining the fluids. Its always best to get the battery out asap to prevent catastrophes, and if you do the fluids first, you can do other things while it drains. As far as where to put bolts/nuts, I always try to put them back where they came from if possible, if not, I use the area around the engine bay to keep them near where they go. If you are going to be doing more than 1 day, then bag them or put them in a sheet of cardbaord and write on the cardboard where they go.

  • When I yank a powertrain I first put 4 self tapping screws 2 in each side next to the hood mounting bolts. This will automatically align the hood during reinstallation. Next, penetrating fluid on as many of the nuts and bolts I can find, giving it time to soak in! Go forward from there.
