Nicely done!
I removed all the accessories at the front when I did mine. Recommend you do the same to re-instal. Gives more room to get the clutch over the transmission shaft without the risk of dinging your crank pulley on the crossmember.

I will. The shop said they wanted everything except the carbs

I didn't realise beards are compulsory for removing an engine 🙂. Nice positive step forward. Hopefully the engine shop can get it all buttoned up tight. Then you can go an fully enjoy the drives.

Wishing you the best of luck,

Nigel

Lol always good to have some facial hair.

Hopefully. I can't wait. It's been fun so far even with the oil.

Gutted and on stands.

Sad day.

On the positive side

I did not see any evidence of the main seal leaking with the engine out.

I can get at the exhaust body cut out and sand that more appropriatelly.

I thouroughly clean the engine bay after all the oil leaking.

I’m surprised there’s not more oil on the firewall if it was leaking so badly.

I had a leaking power steering line on my truck and the entire engine bay and chassis were coated with a mist of oil.

Are your headers oily inside?

Guys: The engine is at the machine shop...let's wait for a tear down analysis before further speculation...jhargrove has run the gamut with gaskets, seals, oil leaks and all that happy stuff...let's see what the pros have to say!

I think in 9 pages of responses we have covered all the possibilities. Quietly waiting for the shop report could be a challenge though 😇

I think we’re all emotionally invested in the outcome of this engine.

I'm late to this party but just noticed in the engine photo that this is a 347. You must install an oil spacer ring prior to the oil rings. I see the number of rings discussed previously, but no mention of the spacer ring. If this was left off or installed incorrectly it could certainly explain all the issues. Now, back to the sidelines...
