Who wants to help me pull my motor?

Postby AWDios » Sat May 19, 2007 11:37 pm

So here's my plan. I've got my car stored in my grandma's garage, and plan on going out on weekends, once or twice a month, to work on getting the motor out.

I'm looking for people that would like to help, especially if you know what you're doing.

I'll provide transportation there, food and beer (or soda if you prefer) to anyone that comes and helps out. Also if you just want to learn, I think this could be a good chance for you.

So let me know if you're interested, and I'll post up and e-mail you when I plan to go out, if you're available and can help that'd be awesome.

Thanks guys!!

(Also if you want to donate money instead of a helping hand, that's welcome as well :) )

I meant more for people on this side of the mountains, I would drive them to everett.

As for equipment, there is a full set off tools and an engine hoist. The first trip my involve taking stock of missing items we may need.

I was joking about the plane/train thing. I hope you get it fix'd asap with no real problems. If I for some reason am in the area I will most definately help though.

The place it's at has a hoist so I'm good there.

My first step is to get it out and take it in to AMD (unless you think we could do a decent job ourselves) and figure out what the problem is and if the block is savable, then I'll figure out what I"m going to do from there.

I'm honestly thinking of finishing all my other plans for the car and drop a working motor in last.

I'm always down for some wrench time when its on someone elses dime :P I have done several Celica motor pulls / installs (including AllTrac) and even a rebuild or two! Generally, I have fridays and saturdays off, and can drive myself. Just let me (us?) know and I'll try to make it work. With the right equipment we can have the motor out in a day easy. Just remember that ziplock bags, masking tape, and sharpies are your friends, and they need to be invited as well. :D

Nope, haven't started yet. It's possible I will be doing some work next weekend, so I'll post up if that's the case.

Why multiple trips?.. You should be able to just pull it in an evening if you have the right tools. Easier to just power through and not forget where you were.
