While draining the coolant is the right thing to do for an engine that will sit for a while, it's also a time for decision making. I'm pulling the engine out. Considering the leaks, the unknown, and the unexplained, I think it prudent to pull the lump out and address all of the issues properly and easily. This is the first step to the this old girl's proper preservation.
I've decided to mosey on up to the business end of things. This shot will be my guide to not only put things back together but to witness the dissection that's about to take place. What I need to do up here are vacuum lines, all of the hoses you see here and the ones you don't, the rubber sleeves between the intake runners and the plenum, see what's shakin' at the fuel distributor, take out the fuel injectors, get the air pump back into circulation...anything from the heads up will get some kind of attention.
