How hard to remove body?

407 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  tom3
As part of my Project SBC (putting in a Chevy Small Block), I am thinking of pulling the body off. I want to do a couple of suspension mods (traction bar, shocks, etc) as well as have better access to the fuel lines to install the electric fuel pump. Besides, it's time to replace the body bushings...getting kida old.

How hard is it?

Yeah...they come off a lot quicker/easier than they go back on. Definitely label everything, and you might want to use something intended for labeling rather than masking tape & a pen. I did my current one that way and have had it apart longer than intended and now I can't read half of them. I'm guessing you probably already have an engine hoist for the SBC can use it for the tub as well. 9.9 times out of 10 I work alone and that's how I did this one.
