  3. Hello,,,new to the z world and need to pull a engine from a 72 for a friend...My question is, do you have enough room to move the engine forward after removing all bolts from bell housing to clear the imput shaft from the clutch ....OR is it like jags that you need to remove the engine and tranny as one unit? THANK YOU!

  11. Well like i said before...dont want some guy who always want a z or had one years ago to get hammered...when i first saw that car i thought it was a parts car..fred flintstone would have loved it...this guy screwed over many ..that is his third ebay account...he re-vin ed a 1800s as a 71.....the poor guy shipped it to california, paid 10k, then went for inspection discovered he can't register it....so he has a 12k paperwieght...Thats just wrong! so I hope they throw his arse in jail...BTW ebay would not help the buyer...
