New Engine in My Riviera

Trashed my engine in my Riv about a year ago. Yesterday Willie (Old Tank), Mike (Buick5563), and Keith who is a welder / fabricator friend of mine came over and helped me put a new one in.

Amongst the general spate of insults, fat jokes and "what the hell is this" comments the engine went in, the skinner people crawled under the car and attached the torque converter and the car got pushed back

into the garage.

All in all it was fun morning finished off with Beer and sandwiches.

Now I have the rest of the chores which is re installing everything else.

Well, talk about your "A" team!!! The only question left is: what brand and flavor of beer?

How much "better" is the replacement engine than the original one? Just curious.

Sounds like y'all had a great time! Made some great progress, too! Much of what the car hobby CAN be about, too!

Enjoy!

It is definitely more fun doing it as a hobby, where there aren't time restrictions.
