very productive weekend with the help of a good friend we stripped the dash to the fire wall, cleared the AC system and loosed all the bolts mating the tranny to the block. motor isn't completely out but should be free once motor mounts are loosened. updated my log sheet with tools used and tracked nuances for future builders references.
a few pics of the progress
Brake master cylinder is free but the rear line fittings in the ABS pump are rusty and soft trying my best not to destroy them but may have to. any one know how much a set of brake lines go for?
