Went to fire it up to move it into a garage to fix the leaking trans input seal.

Which of course means completely exploding everything out from under it.

And then installing a 90-cent bit of metal and rubber. I think it was five very unhurried hours to get to this point. I was kinda savouring the alone time.

I left it propped up with the nose down overnight to see if it’s good, cause I don’t quite trust my own ability to put in seals. I’ve mangled far more than I’ve inserted properly. This one looks good, but I’m not positive until I know.

Plan is to leave on Friday night for the LeMons Car Weeeeeak rally. Hopefully I’m taking the Niva, but there are two other candidates lurking in reserve.
