bumper mounts to rotisserie
The rear mount will be straight forward, the front is going to require a bit of work. I will either have to weld up a bracket or cut down somw larger stock to fit through the body.
had a car parked in here yesterday...
How is once you start orginizing the amount of stuff expands exponentially? I guess I had a lot of stuff stored around the '67.

Unpacked and cleaning garage
I uncrated the Wirily Jig after watching the video - it a little old but it shows how to do everything - just the early 90's economy version used the old bumper jacks at each end. This version uses a 3 ton harbor freight hydraulic cylinder. The rest of the rotisserie is well made and made in the USA.

What I doing with my "winter break"? - I bought a big rotisserie
Again I am faced with 4 plus weeks of vacation. I did not plan enough to take a grand trip, still might do that when this happends again. So time to get working on that long outstanding project. Not wanting to lay on cold concrete again I decide to put the 1800S on a rotisserie.

Engine install slideshow
I broke the distributor cap and then #4 spark plug cable holder - I kept them on as sacrificial parts to protect more important parts. I also will remember to check the wiring diagram and the positions of the switch tabs on the top of the transmission before bolting up into the tunnel. (while I could plug in the wires blind by feel for OD lockout, the reverse light switch has three tabs so if I get it wrong the light will be on all the time and off when in reverse)
