Working on getting the motor out of the Vette and had some disappointing results.
I had to remove the valve covers to be able to get part of the fuel injection off the motor. As soon as I pulled the first cover I saw that the motor has standard rockers. I was under the impression that the 89 Corvettes had 1.5 ratio roller rockers.
My son Alex was in town this weekend so I got him to come out and help me. He originally helped me put the exhaust on the Vette back in 2005. So it only made since that I have him remove it.
Here we used a “new” automotive tool to cut the hoses on the AC compressor. Yes, that is a pair of hedge clippers.
We got quite a bit done on pulling the motor. We had to stop due to it getting so hot. Once it hit about 97 degrees I started to feel bad and called it for now.
