    i figured it like this, i had to take off the same things i would have if i had pulled the motor(to paint them), without pulling the motor. after everthing came off, lots of room. i was realy suprised for a motor in. had to take out the air and heat to re do and just went from there. cleaning with a can of laq thinner, and lots of rags.(the hardest) so now ill paint them factory as i put them back on. i figured if it aint' broke, im not fixin it! motor was already painted when it was put in and still holds a fresh blue. so all the acc. need the touch now. tks for the kind words. :cheers:

    Man looks good, i never even considered doing it that way, i guess cause im pretty dumb. Think i might do that even while the slant still in, i know it has more room than v-8 Hate the looks of my engine compartment now! Was going to wait until v8 swap but after seeing that why wait!! Thanks alot.

    Any more problems with paint drips by doing it that way? Looks like the way to go if you don't have an engine hoist.
