LQ4 Install - Thirdgen F-Body - Motor install from the bottom
Watch in HD!! The time is FINALLY here! I got most of a day to put the motor and trans back into my car! This video is mostly time lapsed. It took me about an hour total. Mostly because of fiddling with the camera, and having the dolly wheels sink into the driveway. Took me some time to get it moving around again. This method works great for me. Mainly because trying to snake a motor and trans over the front of that car is a pain. I have zero desire to remove that hood and try to line it back up again. And installing/tightening those engine mount bolts while its in the car is a real pain too. This way always works good for me, and as you can see, is totally doable by myself. I could have used a second set of hands though just to help shove things around and line things up. I had some technical difficulties with my camera, and there is some lost footage of me talking through a few steps, but its no real loss. Enjoy! If you have any questions or comments please feel free!
