i purchased some bbk 1531 long tubes and was wondering if anyone could help me figure out how to get the drivers side header on ....is there and trick to the trade>? also the steering shaft has been removed.....any help plz auto bbk
I installed a set for a manual, so not sure how different it could be. I jacked up the engine with motor mounts unbolted from K-member. Fished the passenger side in from the top pretty easily. Then I used a ratchet strap to pull the engine toward the passenger side and fished the driver's side in from the bottom. It helps to have the car as high off the ground as you can. I did it with steering rack still installed.
back the nut on the passenger mount off half way. take the nut off the drivers side mount. jack up the engine as far as it will go so it rotates counterclockwise as it goes up. feed the header up from the bottom, let the motor down.
