I want to kill car designers every time I work on one! Back in the day you could climb up in the engine bay & sit beside a straight six. Not now, and everything is in the way of what you have to get to. Had to pull the radiator, and what a nightmare to get the clamps off the hoses. Of course it doesn't help that I'm worn out, and it doesn't help that there's no relief for me in the near future either, but it still has to get done. I'm as far as I can go till I get the new part, and I milk morning & night tomorrow, so it won't start back together until Saturday earliest, and I milk morning & night that day too. I do have Sunday off, but I have TONS to do to get ready for plow day, and it's taking all the joy out of it. Hoping I feel better mentally by plow day, but I know I'll be exhausted physically.
Anyways, here's where I am. You can see where the harmonic balancer is coming apart. The top side should all be flush.
