    I dunno about fast!!!! I spent a good part of July 4th removing the heads and all the brackets and accessories. Went out yesterday afternoon, got the oil pan off and the starter and then we yanked the motor. Plus I have aALOT of help. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif We still gotta dress the other one and install it.

    As far as the seats, they are from a 95 Honda Accord. I was in a wreck that broke my old blazer seat so the guy that hit me paid to have these seats installed. They're bitchin'. I love them.

    Man, it is BAD ugliness inside of my motor!! The #8 piston broke and is missing about 1" of the top piston ring. The timing chain needed a 10 speed bike derailer to take up the slop. There were some bizzare detonation patterns on the pistons. When I removed the oil pan the pick up screen wasn't even attached to the oil pump /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif I'm surprised this POS even fired up without a fight! Anyway, it's all dressed up and it's going in today, WAHOOOOOOOOO /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    You may have to tangle with an 11 yr old over it, it's his seat. He may give you a run for your money but I think you can take him. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif You can probably bribe him with a Pepsi and a Reese.

    I drove an '85 in the shop, pulled the 350, threw the hood back on, and shoved it out of the shop in half a day by myself (brag) /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
