Engine Out

Just finished taking the engine out. There was oil coming from every possible place on the engine so this was a messy job.

Found lots of wiring that had been “repaired” by the PO. It looks like I will need to build/buy a new wiring harness for the engine bay. Found several frame cracks near the left motor mount and on the left motor mount. The original exhaust system was still on the car. Everything is in remarkably good shape except for the little muffler near the exhaust manifold. his has a crack on the bottom where the pipe is joined to the muffler.  If I plan on keeping the stock exhaust this looks like it can be repaired if necessary
