Went to Harbor Freight and picked up a set of larger sockets and a breaker bar last weekend. First thing I did when I got home was get out the 1" socket and try to turn over the engine. I've have no idea what shape this engine is in but I have confirmed that the engine is not seized. Its amazing the amount of relief I felt.

Also got the front bumper removed. It only took me about 3 evenings. Separating the upper and lower bumper is going to be even harder as those bolts have deteriorated beyond being able to put a wrench or socket on them.

Lastly, I spent my last government mandated furlough day (today) pulling the carburetor, ignition coil and a few other items off. I am planning to pull the engine in about a month.
