New home for Revived Mouse House 110 Engine

Well, testing of the Mouse House 110 Engine is delayed. Rick's mother passed away Friday and he is in New York attending to arrangements and house issues.

In the interim, we are preparing the new home for the Mouse House 110 Engine. The engine currently in the LM PG car is being prepped for removal. All upper engine items needing removal have been removed or disconnected.

The car is up in the air where the rear bumper lower edge is 29 1/2 inches above the floor. That appears to be about 4 inches of clearance to drag the engine out from under the car.

I have mounted the engine removal cradle I bought from Dave Motohead to my 800 lb rated transmission jack. Just a hint to people getting these cradles. Make sure you have great bits to drill the cradles as this is good steel they used.

Tomorrow, Donna and I will be removing items on lower side of engine and transaxle. We hope to pull engine tomorrow afternoon or saturday.

Yep. That engine needed to come out even if it was just for a good cleaning and painting.

Not much done today. Dealing with Camping World on the RV slowed down our progress on the engine re,oval.

We got the rear grill, mount cover and exhaust pipe/muffler off today.

Yes she. Is. We didnt get anything done today. I had the 10 year internal check done today. She helped me with prep and getting me home. Glad it is over. Never again.
