Re: Yikes, What happened? Engine swap obstacle....
Not only was I speeding around town with the prerequisite of a broken motor mount (driver's side as usual) but the (insert explicitive) bolt that holds the rear of the tranny decided to vanish! How close to mahem was I? One bolt! The passenger side engine mount was the only thing between me and a whole lot o' metal carnage. When racing, I'd watch the stick move an inch or two while comming off the line, I had no idea. I thought my stick was torquing from my engine mods....
Anyway, I just have to back the transmission up a bit to reinsert the rear shaft thing and use a new bolt with some red locktite. --lots easier to type than do -- I'm operating on a shoestring tool collection since my tools were stolen last year in Salt Lake [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
And it's pretty miserable in the garage here in Dallas. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
