Now it's the spring of 2014.
I got a big jug of marine clean by por 15, a few brushes, and got started degrease the engine. This is all being done out in a field, without running water, or electricity hook up.
Then I installed the newly rebuilt 160 amp alternator.
And I dropped this silly mess out from under the engine. It won't be reinstalled.
Front engine mount is pounded out. It will need replacing.
I also started reinstalling the large rad hoses that lead to and from the trans heat exchanger.
I also mounted the heat exchanger a bit differently.
