My friend got a job to fix this car and had to replace the engine. Before he found out that the motor was required to come through the bottom he had already tried to remove and install with engine hoist from above. Needless to say it was not without diffuculty. Now his problem is now that everything is lined up, the motor will not crank over by hand using the crankshaft bolt. What would be some reasons behind this mystery? Is there a sequence to bolting in the motor to the tranny? Also how do we go about resolving the issue?
have the same problem?
