I tried to put in a new pan gasket yesterday. Ended up the gasket was cut into. I put it in from the front. Don't know what cut it. I have did it this way before, with no problems. I'm doing this in frame. Today's another day, I'll try again today.

I replaced one borrowed Holley for another borrowed Holley. I desperately need to bolt my Holley Sniper and Aeromotive Stealth fuel system on my Monte Carlo.

Put it in storage today until next spring. Was able to find a new place for the same money. A little further away but still dirt cheap. Will barter some of the expense but still well worth it.

Spent the day carving pumpkins and lounging with the kids...it's been raining since 6 AM, and the garage where my wagon is doesn't have electricity, so I have to push it out to work on it. I hope tomorrow is better...

Tried to take the Monte to the Menard's Chevy Show at Gateway yesterday, but the car was mad at me for neglecting it most of the summer. Started backfiring on the highway so I turned around and grabbed another vehicle.

Should probably fix that today.

Honestly besides the hole that doesn't look awful bad... doesn't look like it's made its way to the rocker panels or the rear floor crossmember/mounts area.

Nope not that bad I have seen worse.

Rockers and number 3 mounts are ok but the pass side torque box needs a little help so I have to pull her off the frame

I put the jackstands in again. Removed the bolts from the fan shroud and flex plate cover. Drained the oil. Jacked up the engine pulled the bolts out of the motor mounts. Jacked it up more then put the bolts back in.
