The question was posed a little while ago if it was easier to drop a trans or pull and engine for access to clutch, seals etc.
I also wanted to swap out my mar-mount modded enine mounts for some soft ones. That is a good mod for sure but noisy.
So since I had enough reasons to pull the motor and I'm in a shop now I decided to use my engine hoist and see how it went compare to dropping a trans.
So dropping trans is faster but more suffering, pulling engine is slower but easier.
Meh if you already pulled the engine, it's easier to change them now. I'd swap them out and send them to me EDIT : sounds like Marlin torques his down. And you have the nylon washer so I'm not sure why they'd be more harsh than stock. EDIT 2 : Now that you have the engine out, you could rebuild that W56 and put that in there
I could be wrong, but I don't think that's the chain you're supposed to use when you remove or install an engine. Those actually go ON the engine.
Athough THAT is a use for old timing chains.
He does it every time and I just now noticed At least they're the double row. you try that with a single row and they might stretch
And the engine goes back in. Just have to put in the radiator and hook up the doodads and we can go back to work!
Two of the flywheels, the bad ones, were 22 lbs and the good one was 24 lbs. The newer style one I had been using was 24 lbs too so I was glad not to change since I've been so happy with the trucks performance. The 1,600 lb pressure plate is 3 lbs lighter than the old one which is interesting.
