Good evening everyone! It's finally time to revive citrus 2139! I have been busy lately, but I finally have the time to get to this. I'll be posting about this over the weekend fairly consistently, and I'll update this post with more info later, but as of right now.

TLDR: it has a spun rod bearing and I'm replacing/resealing engine.

Reserved for more stuff/pics.

And it's out! Not had at all to do this... When you have a 2 post lift and all the tools. I commend @CherryBomb for doing it on the ground, I do not possess such strength.

So the first order of business today is to remove wheels, control arms, front shocks/springs, rotors, brakes, rear shocks and springs, engine and transmission. I'll post throughout the day on progress.

Front suspension is out along with the axles. It really is amazing how easy it is to work on these cars. Gotta love it!

Finally got the oil pan off @Willie Williford. All 3 look like this. I think #3 failed and spread crap to every other bearing. (Pics are of #3)

Are you going to replace the axles with the stiffer ones? They make a huge difference.
Picture is worth a thousand words ;).

Also, gonna need these stronger axles to handle LiBCM. (jk, but for real lemme know when the RevD boards are ready, gonna need one for this car).
