Started pulling motor

Hi Guys,I started getting the 302 ready to pull out.Just got a few bellhousing bolts and the torque converter nuts.And it is ready to pull.Then start on the 71 to get that motor out and get it ready to put in the 78.Then maybe the next day or two get the 390 out of the other 78 and get it ready to go in the 71.And get the frontend swaped out of the 78 to the 71.Just thought I would let you guys know.Tony

Had to order a part today.Had to get a new Flexplate and got a new starter too.Flexplate should be here this afternoon or in the morning.Plus it rained all morning too so that didnt help neither.And i did get some more cleaning done to 78 so it ready to go.Guess im going to start to take the trans off the good 302.Then just do the waiting game.
