Tough Day !!
Today started out well. I got the motor outside and in the back of my other truck. I assembled the engine lift and attempted to install the engine. However, I could not get the engine to mate flush with the transmission.
After about three hours, it still would not work. I pulled out the engine and transmission. I put them on the back of the truck and tried to join the two. The input shaft of the transmission would still not go into the pilot bearing!
I sanded/polished the input shaft and tried again. No luck. After a few hours of this, a friend came over agreed that I had myself in a pickle.
We sanded down the input shaft and tried a few more times. Finally we got the motor to mate with the transmission.
Hmmm... I'm thinking of a five letter word that starts with a B.
Yeap, it is time for a Break.
