Re: Valve Spring install with engine in truck
The studs are in..Damn is that hard on the body. Fat men should not work on their own trucks. Take out the motor mount bolts on the side your want to raise and the tranny mount from the cross member, put a block against the exhaust manifold and lift. Worked great to get the rear studs in. Thanks for that pointer Jeremy...
The valve springs were supposed to be in today but they are on back order. I have to make some calls tomorrow. The one that looks to be the hardest is going to be the rears. Looks like I may have to lift the engine like I did for the studs.
The turbo, well, I am waiting on Bean......Bean???....... Hello,,,,,,Norman.....(a little Billy Cristal there)
