    I know the feeling. I got a little too happy with the wire cutters removing an old Viper Car alarm form my K5. Now its voltmeter time to figure out what got cut by accident. Atleast I have a back up plan for Tellico....

    well, just taking a lunch break...

    Got the motor/tranny in, but the heads are hitting the fire wall, and it appears the oil pan is hitting the cross member. As it sits now, the motor is back out, and the crossmember is out. I'm going to bolt the cross member to the motor mounts to make sure everything will fit. I also need to persuade the fire wall:D

    Pics will come as the day closes.
