1st up today was remove the transmition from the RH case. Remove a few nuts, give the input shaft a tap with a rubber mallet and wala the tranny comes out easy as that.
I then took a tip from another inmate and spent some time getting organized. $6 at Walmart gets me 2 parts organizer bins.
Pulled the rods off the crank.
Then spend some quality time with my new parts washer...my hands may never be the same again!
The engine cases fresh out of the parts washer tank
It was kinda funny. I had the RH engine case spun every which way in the parts washer. But when I got it on the bench...this little bugger fell out
And it fell out of here
It looks like it was a check ball for the oil pump pickup. The pickup isn't looking too good and will have to be replaced. I assume it is a replaceable part.
Next question...What is this rusty brown thing?
