Did not get much done last week. Plan for this weekend is to do a compression test on the old engine and remove all the crap in front of it. I located an engine hoist for rent for $50 so I have the means to lift it out. Also bought a puppy to replace the dog we had to put down.

But just to show I am a crazy old idiot, I did manage to change the thermostat on our other 328 without removing the fan. Took five hours but got it done. Not for the faint of heart but I could not get the fan off (yes I was turning it the right way) even after soaking it with PB Blaster overnight. It was the original thermostat so it did its time.

Looking forward to pulling off some parts on Sunday while mom goes to get this llittle rascal.
