This picture show how untouched this Runner is. Every bracket, clamp, bolt and bracket is still where Mother Mopar put them 35 years ago. The motor refused to budge when a wrench was put on the balancer bolt so it was going to have to come out.

Getting ready to yank it but this is just one of the many shots I took of it to document where everything goes. You can't have too many pictures because no matter what the "experts" say, all these cars were built different and they each have their unique parts and ways. I am sure that the assembly line did not come to a halt just beacuse Joe was out of the 43211-A type of washer, they just used what they had and it keep on rolling.

This picture and the next shot shows that no matter how much they don't want to come out, anything will move with enough sweat, penetrating oil, muscle power and enough four-letter words to make a sailor blush.

In the background you can see the bullet hanging from the hook. The large puddles on the floor are anti-freeze and transmission oil, both which ended up in my wife's hair (God Bless Her)

Check out the third cylinder from the front and look closely at the yellow stuff in there, its corn. Apparently a mouse worked his way up the tail pipe, through the muffler and past the exhaust valve to make his grain bin in my 383. After we pulled that head the exhaust valve in that cylinder was rusted almost all the way through so it is a good thing we did not try to fire the motor or that valve would have broken and wiped out the numbers-match block.
