Before moving the engine from the cherry picker to the engine stand, I had to get some bolts. I got a kit from Summit Racing. Part SUM-G1012M. They are 10.9 grade (metric for Grade 8) bolts and they worked just fine. I was not sure about exact positioning, maybe someone will comment on the video in YouTube.
I lowered the engine until the oil pan was touching the floor and I used my floor jack to support the heavy black engine stand part. I wanted to make absolutely sure not to cross thread the bolts, and took my time. The jack was a big help.
Next, a bunch of parts flew off – Engine mount brackets, AC compressor housing bracket thingy, and some other small stuff.
I used the jack to support the oil pan while unthreading the bolts and the thing came off very gently and easily. Then I spun it around and got the oil pickup, the windage tray, and finally, the oil pump.
Next was the machine shop discussion. This was a curve ball.
So, check out the video, and be sure to check out my other videos, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and like and comment. Thanks!
