Finally, the engine is home in my garage. :D

Now all I need to do is:

1 install the engine/transaxel;

2 Replace the suspension with the nice lowering kit I bought;

3 Brake job; and

4 hope it starts.

Just a quick update.

The engine is installed. I'm looking for a couple of hoses I removed that I can't find (small matter) :?

I determined one of the main bearings is shot, but it is not such a big deal since I am doing the suspension/brakes this week end.

Pics to follow!

Nice, cabby. Too bad the weather has been so crappy there this summer (if that is what you can call it). Since I am in Calgary too I might have to swing by and check yours out to give me some ideas for mine.
