I removed the front timing cover. Significant corrosion on the tubes to the block and behind the Water pump and the hose attachment. No surprises there. I will post pictures tomorrow.

One thing I found perplexing is the amount of slack in the timing chain. Are they prone to stretching? How are the replacements?

Sat it on the bellhousing end after removing the studs and removed the pan. Lot of sludge in the pan but the upper crankcase looked pristine. This photo is to reference the oiling system.

Another engine bay view. I had to remove the bolts and move the steering box to get clearance. Pulled it straight out the front.

I am pulling the engine to make sure there are no issues and to give it cosmetic overhaul, hardware paint, etc.

I used a 2 ton cherry picker with a leveler and it came out in about 15 min. I was amazed.

I just went thru an ordeal with other glass and was told glass has a natural green tint, especially as previously stated, looking at the edge.

PackardDon and Ross,

Thanks for the input. That is what I figured but there are a lot of things I figured wrong over time.
