After a weekend of struggling at last I have managed to get Gordon's engine out of the chassis.
Easy...NOT, I'm still suffering with my left thumb injury so lifting and fiddling is quite hard work. I have to admit I had to resort to a bit of 'butchery' here and there with bolts shearing and rounding off, culminating in me sawing through the header pipes to remove them to get to the front engine mounting bolts, nasty!
On the up side; weight is falling of him. I'm going to borrow some fishing scales to accurately weigh all the components that come off, I will list them and their weight and for all us 'sados' see what the total comes to.
More to come......
