I finally got around to pulling the old engine and transmission out. It really wasn’t so bad. As I’m doing all the work myself, I just take my time and make sure I do everything safely! The forklift I rented was right behind where I’m doing the work, so the cost was very reasonable. No drop off and pick up cost! Yea!
Will strip off some parts to install on the new one.
Allison 740 bolted up to new engine.
More work that was finished today. Flexplate was bolted up to transmission. Starter and rear mounts removed, cleaned and installed. Front ones removed but will have to wait until just before I install it. I removed the valve covers from the old engine, they will get cleaned and installed on the new one. I prefer them as they are cast aluminum not pressed.
Now that the engine and old Spicer are out of the way, I can clean and inspect the engine rails, remove any unnecessary pieces and paint everything. It should look pretty good when I’m finished. At least I will be able to detect any leaks much easier! HA
I did the pictures a little different today. Just click on the photo and you will be taken to my Photobucket album titled Engine Tranny Swap. Not sure if I like it or not.
