With the motor now at Valley Engine, and the transmission ready to go, it's time to find a home for this new

Normally one would remove the hood first. But none of my neighbors were around to help (very heavy!) so I
got started with pulling the engine and transmission while the hood was still in place. This at least allowed me to
be sure there was nothing still connected.
This looks almost the same as the one being rebuilt! That's good because I plan to use many of the engine parts
and accessories from the original 326 motor on the 389. For example, the original motor had the correct intake
manifold where the one I got from TX had an after market unit. This will save me some money!
