Bonnet off, radiator out, head off, timing cover off, but block still bolted in place.

It's a long story... :roll:

Hi

Sump off to ensure no leaks, was it for the water pump?

Good luck

I don't know what age or condition you're in but hours bent over the wings will take their toll on your back and knees,it's not much more trouble to hoist the engine out and work on it in comfort..

Don't have access to an engine lift at the moment. I suppose I should buy my own, but then it's another lump of metal to take up space in the garage. :roll:
