Engine & Gearbox Removal

February 2009 was spent removing the motor and gearbox before the 300ZX was brought home.

As you might be able to tell from the photo, There is alot crammed into these cars
It's not an easy job Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) have of turning petrol into hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and other hazardous air pollutants ... all while creating large amounts of heat and noise ... Oh yeah ... and powering the vehicle.

The ICE also makes a far better step stool than an electric one would anyday.

I'm glad I don't have to put any of this junk back in ... (because I forgot my label maker at home)

OK, Here's some wires ... which one do I plug the electric motor into ???

With my limited mechanical knowledge when it comes to cars ... It pays to have a qualified Nissan Mechanic as a brother-in-law ... ... (Thanks Nicko ... getting the motor out of this thing was no small task, but it was enough to get the wheels turning "so to speak")
The gearbox and tailshaft came out too ... but i'll be keeping these for later
