Engine strip

This evening decided to strip off the engine wiring loom, coolant hoses and drain the sumps. Also took the fuel pump out of the tank.

The pump came out easy enough, and I drained the last bit of petrol out, and then filled the tank with water to make it safer and placed it back in the car.

The wiring loom came off quite easily, and I carefully labelled everything as I went (see image). The coolant hoses came off, but then I went to drain the sumps. The engine sump plug came out quite easily, the gearbox one refused to budge and eventually got rounded off. Damn. This means gearbox oil will leak out when I remove the driveshafts. Oh well, plenty of trays and pots should reduce the mess.
