    FWIW when doing a 3800 trans swap on the floor.. an ATV jack is my tool of choice.

    Looks good Brandon, where's the donor for the K10?
    I drink..so consider that when reading my posts.

    The LM7 is still on the stand in the garage. The 60e is taking up space on a shelf. Both are clean and ready for installation.

    The 700r4 is all cleaned up and in the garage. I did the math and it's got 27,959 (mostly highway) miles on a Jasper rebuild. Should fetch a couple dollars. I think I'll wait to sell it till the swap is complete. Or at least until everything in the drivetrain is mocked up and properly laid out. In the past, I've sold things right as they came out. Typically that's fine, but there have been occasions where it would have been nice to have the old components for reference. I think it will be especially useful on this build.

    After a couple days of unscrewing, unbolting and unclipping, I think this old mule is ready to come out.I am so ready to get this grease bomb outta there and get the bay cleaned up. Forecast was saying it could rain, and the sky was getting pretty dark so I stopped there. We'll wait till tomorrow to lift it out. I'm really hoping I can get it out without pulling the hood completely off. I think if I leave the hinges on, but unbolt the springs I should be able to open it far enough to slip through. Fingers crossed!

    Engine is out! Went better than expected. No injuries, nothing broken. We opened the hood up to the "Service position" (2nd picture) and that gave us plenty of room.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be half as far done if not for my kid pushing things along. I try to put in a minimum of 20 minutes a day, but have been averaging over an hour due to his persistence. Today was all cleanup. Round one at least. I totally forgot to do the underside of the hood and the jack assembly. There will be a round two tomorrow. Here's some before pictures.

    Cleanup is done. Not going to win any "Show and Shine" trophies, but it's on par with the rest of the truck. Bonus; I won't look like a coal miner just working on the thing. Next step is to lay down some OSPHO and satin black.
