If you like a challenge then this would be it , I will ride it again, same track we rode last time, it would rock to ride it in cooler weather tho, my pig gets hot to easy on slower speeds.

I just hope we dont bust them getting them out
Just use a 2x10 under the pan and floor jack and jack the engine up.
It will spread the weight evenly and will not damage the pan.

I broke a bolt off in the flywheel on dads truck with the impact.
I have a couple easy outs that are square and look like a ream.
I just drilled a hole in it and tapped the easyout with a hammer and spun
it out. Took less than 10 minutes.
I would bet you could get in there with a 90* drill head and a good
bit and drill it without pulling the fender. Just the motor mount assembly.
Wish you was closer, I could help.

I would do it again,
It was tough on XTiques' clutch coming out. It was steep and rocky as heck.
But my trials tires never faultered and it never really kicked out, but XTique
has a really short swingarm and tends to wheelie with every little effort so
hill climbs are not its strong suit. Thus the feathering of the clutch overworked it.

I would like to get back up there and explore the tracks the other guys used in and out. It has to be easier.
I've been thinking of a little camping trip with XTique and the CJ5, would be nice to try and open it back up as a jeep trail in someway but the way we did it.

from the pics he posted Ted, they are broken off in the block

one has been for a while ( rusty)

and the other snapped when he thought the trans mount had broken recently.

Albie and I both thought we'd be there a little before noon. See ya there.

If Albie gives me grief for having to go back to work one more time, though........

Should I be worried? Doc just came to visit my new digs. Now he knows where I live and I don't feel comfortable with that.
