Hello and help please,
What started out to be a simple (?) swap from P/G to a Muncie-20 on my 69 SS clone has ballooned into a major, at least for me, project. I was just going to pull just the motor and trans and make the swap. Instead I started looking at all the other things that needed done (like repair rust damage & replace sub-frame mounts, replace heater fan, rad supports etc.-etc.). Now Iíve got everything off the front of the car and was wondering what is the easiest and cleanest way to roll out the front subframe. Iíve got to take it on a small flat bed trailer to work and weld on patch plates at the sub frame holes. In particular where and how should I separate the steering column and the brake lines/master cylinder to allow the sub frame to roll out. (I emphasize the lack of mess. When pulling the motor/trans, I was doing real well until it came time to remove the trans. I figured I had drained the all the fluid from the P/G so I just pulled the trans off the back of the engine and left the converter attached. Well needless to say I had a river of ATF running all over the garages floor.) Did I say that Iíve never done this kind of thing before?? Pretty obvious isnít it!!
Iíll continue to stumble on with this never-ending adventure. Any suggestions that you care to offer would be greatly appreciated.
