Cool project.Rob, you should have seen me after I installed the engine and transaxel in the 911. I jacked it up as high as I could on stands, then used two floor jacks in tandem to snake it all in. It really wasn't that big of a deal, but I was by myself, so it took some getting up, getting down... etc. What is cool is it was all in one unit. You get it in place, four bolts, and then you just hook the electrical, linkage, oil lines, fuel, drive shafts, etc., and good to go. Oh, the reason for the extraction was the synros in the trans were bad. I had it rebuilt, new clutch, bearings, surfaced flywheel, rebuilt starter, alternator, drive shaft boots. and a restoration of the Weber carbs. Oh, I totally went through the brakes, had the calipers restored, new pads and hardware, new rubber lines on all four corners, new Konis x 4, ... All new shifter linkage bushings.... New horns... Uh... LOL!!!! And the original interior was gone, so I found original rear "seats" etc and lucked up on some aluminum frame Wolf Racing seats for the front... and a really cool Raid steering wheel, all from the same era, early 70s and rare.
It is kind of tired at 108K on the original motor, but still will run well over 135.... last time out. The plan is to pull the motor and replace it with newer one with 100 more HP. 300hp in a 2,200 pound car should be pretty quick I would think.
