Fluid Flush

It was time to drain the fluids in preparation for the final stages of disassembly. Above is the engine oil draining.

I also pulled off the oil pan.  It was a little stubborn,  but a couple hits with the new dead blow hammer and a pry from a screwdriver freed it up.  I am definitely going to need a new gasket.

The other half of the gasket and the inside of the engine.

Next came the transmission oil.

Then the drive-shaft oil and the the final drive oil, which are separate.  The drive-shaft drain plug is hiding right behind the rod for the rear brake.

This thing is now bone dry and ready to come apart in a big way.  That, however, will have to wait until after a trip to the machine shop for one very important thing.  Find out what that is next time.
