This is a result of when you rescued that busload of Nuns and Orphans from certain doom as it hurtled towards a cliff...right? Lol. Here's to a rapid recovery with no complainations.

With one hand, yes, but I don't like to brag so I just tell people I tripped over the dog gate. 

Thank you!

No, just some cleanup. I tore the meniscus and then they found other old guy junk while they were in there. I'm walking already but have to be careful for a month or so. Looking forward to getting out on the trail soon!!

Continuing with my engine swap...

 

Boy, talk about getting Tunnel vision. I'll get to that in a minute.  To pull the engine,  I had to remove the interior transmission tunnel cover to access the engine to transmission bolts. No access from below.

Once that was done, it was time to pull the engine.  This was as far as I could get.................

The engine wouldn't come out, no matter what I tried.  So I gave up and went camping with Steve and Karen. :)  Here is the tunnel vision part!  Steve told me about this sneaky bolt. It was hiding behind the heater duct. I was convinced that there was no bolt in that spot.   In my defense, I've pulled plenty of engines, never had one with a bolt right there.

The final result..............

Note how close the oil pan is to the sheet metal.  My lift was all but maxxed out.  I barely squeaked by on clearance.  I'd been sweating it, so I shortened all the chains to make sure I could get it out.

 

Next is to swap the manifolds and other parts over before putting the other engine in.
