Engine and Gearbox Out
My welding slot is gradually approaching, so I'd better make a bit of progress on readying the shell for blasting.
This weekend it was engine and gearbox out, using the "gently lower them onto trolleys and lift the car off" method.
I realise this is not much of an achievement - the engine was only back in the shell for transit from Australia, so I had no issues of disconnecting linkages, fuel lines, electrics etc. But still the first time I've ever done it, so I felt unjustifiably pleased to have done it myself, without dropping anything heavy. And indeed without bending the selector shaft where it comes through the hole in the rear bulkhead.
