No eggs for easter just engine work

well gentlemen we started 10am and compeleted the swap at 8:49pm last nite....she fired right up and sounds good! the only problem is when the engine was in the truck on the way here the crank pulley bent......i guess the weight of the engine and the way it was put in there it just had all the weigh on it, we fired her up and that thing was waballing lol....we went to take the other off the old engine and the puller we had didnt fit and every PART STORE WAS CLOSED .....but we accomplimshed the swap, the new engine is in and sounds strong...didnt get as many pics as i would have like my phone ways dying and pics were honestly last thing on my mind..i got some of the new engine in and the old engine sitting on the ground!

Re: No eggs for easter just engine work
