decided to take out the motor and box in one piece rather than f**k around tryin to get the top bolts for the bellhousing,just need to remove the tail shaft and drain the gear box oil, then borrow an engine crane from someone if they arent using it,
also found out today the diffs a single pegger, it was missing the tags so i jacked it up and one wheel spun the oposite way to the one i was spinning

well im up to pulling the engine out and i cant get hold of my mate to borrow the engine crane to pull it out, so i tryed to use a tree in the back yard with a tow strap around its strongest branch and tied to the other falcon but the tree branch wasnt strong enough and it started to bend, and my mates work mate came around and mocked me because we thought of the idea so i called it a day,

still cant get an engine crane so i decided to spend a few minutes pulling the wipers off and cleaned out the leaves an s**t from under the front windscreen in the gutter to prevent getting rust under there, and put the oxy sensor off this car onto my ef as its looking much nicer than the one on my ef and it seemed to make it run slightly better, hopefully i get a litle more economy and a better start up until i dont need the car anymore, then i can swap it back onto the el

i almost did get rid of it on my first fairmont, always slow and sometimes they stopped working, then i replaced the centre consol swtiches and they worked again, and i found out i just needed to lube the rails and s**t lol, i think ill run the wiring and fit the centre consol switches and then when i have some more time ill fit the motors when i dont need to use the car, wouldnt mind fitting the trip computer either as my car doesnt have anything but has the wiring for the standard clock, only need to add 2 or 3 more wires for the whole trip computer to work and i have 2 spares so i might aswell use them, but i hate climate control so it wont be finding its way into my car lol, its either turned full on cold or full on hot or its off and i have the window down,

motor is still in the engine bay but is up off the cross member, just need my mate to finish work so he can help me get it rite up and out :D getting closer, just need to pull the coil pack off the new motor and swap in a dizzy and change the wiring loom to the el one on the motor as it seemed different, then fit the manual flywheel and clutch
i was very suprised when i seen that the rear main seal wasnt leaking on my spare motor im putting in, i know it was originally out of an el put into my old ef as a replacement before i bought it so they must have replaced the rear main seal,, its only done another 40 thousand since it was dropped into that car so itl be ok for this one
will upload pictures of an empty engine bay tonite hopefully :P
