Me and my neighbour lifted the engine out easily enough. Didn't have to worry about the frame then . Going to rap rags around it for install. It's a lot lighter than a BIG lump. Powder coating firms seem to plug all threaded holes but leaves the engine bolt holes open, so I've got to clean the powder out off them :? I should has asked them to plug'um.

Brake calipers next, new s/s pistons, rubber boots, seals, s/s bleed screws, pins & pads.
I'm still enjoying doing the work, maybe because I haven't gone at it to fast.

Soon be summer !

Too true and the bounty is reaping the rewards of yer work:)
Forgot to tell my guy about the bolt holes mmmn a call is in order lol.
Must weigh the big lump while it's on the bench!
