Default How to remove an engine in under 2 hours

Within 2 hours of turning off the engine:

We decided to experiment with leaving as much as possible on the car, so only the fans, radiator, condenser, belts, intake, and IC had to come out.

Heads look the same as last time they were out:

Block also:

Gaskets are blown again - no surprise - but the most obvious one is the passenger side. I'm sure they're both blown. Heads will be o-ringed and the engine will go back together next weekend.

Many thanks to Fitz who once again lent his time, tools, and garage to help my poor leaking head gaskets. He also drove me to drop the heads off for o-ringing and even dropped me off at home. As a tiny token of my appreciation, I helped him upgrade his TEC-II PROM.
