It appears many holes were not open when heads were pulled. Is it a wrong gasket or flipped gasket?

Clock removal

Posted on October 9, 2015 at 11:33am 2 Comments

Hey all, Couldn't get my clock out yesterday so I had a rare moment of clarity. Rubber band from the band used to hold broccoli together. After 20 minutes of cussing, put it on, worked like a charm.

Marcellus, to answer your question you posted on the chatt site;  you do not need to take the tranny out with the motor.

I just finished my motor install on my 63, so if you have any questions, I'll help out.

BTW, I'm in Tucson.
