There was a lot of incidental work like figuring out how to take apart (put back together) CV axles, mounting brackets in the engine bay, transferring equipment to the new transmission, and finally mating the transmission to the engine. Fortunately, Joe came over and helped me, and since he has already been through the process, it was much, much easier. Finally at about 7pm , we got the engine and transmission up and bolted into the van without support from the engine hoist. There is still a lot to do before turning the ignition key, but I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
