Good job Greg! i remember motor removals and installs, except in old classic wooden boats. Just be glad you dont have wiring harnesses ontop of harnesses etc. etc. That makes it 10 times more of a headache

Hooray! Lol and while that may be, I'm surely not as awesome as Gregski! This thread is one of my all time favorites.

Day 2 of disassembly, we join the action already in progress...

in order to get the carb off we disconnect the throttle cable and the four studs, and into the bin she goes

started out by removing the wiring harness that runs across the top from the driver side to the passenger side

don't forget the grounds, there is one by each one of the headlights, and one on the frame rail

I think this is a brake sensor that needs disconnecting

I removed the headlight bezels because there are two hidden bolts hidden way up high under there

I think 7 bolts hold the radiator support to each fender, now there are 3 additional bolts that hold it underneath to the inner fender, but 7 go from the inside out to each fender

I wanted to remove the front section as much in one piece as possible, but decided to remove the lower grille panel to get access to hidden fasteners

it was held on by 8 bolts, two in the middle and three on each end, like so

removed the overflow tank so I wouldn't damage it, when I had to lift the radiator support out by myself
