Figuring out my 69
I took over a project from someone else who tore down a 69 convertible and sent the engine and trans out to be rebuilt. I've got a body, a block that looks clean and looks like it has some new parts and a clean transmission that's supposed to have been rebuilt.
I'm pretty good at figuring stuff out but I have a few question. My major concern now is that as I bolt all the top end stuff onto the block, that I don't miss anything. I didn't take it apart and it's been a few years since I've been this far into an old, GM engine. Without some illustrations and blow ups of all the parts and pieces, I risk missing some seal or washer that I would have seen if I took it apart.
I have the DVD service manual for the car but it doesn't give the detail I need. I'm looking for a set of diagrams that show all the parts. I know how to do the work so I don't really need step by step overhaul instructions. I don't need anything for the trans. I have my fingers crossed.
The other question I'm trying to figure out right now is probably pretty simple. I have the transmission crossbar, when the time comes I should be able to figure out which side goes toward the front and which side goes to the back.
The real question is how do the ends of the cross bar attach to the frame? If there were holes in it I'd look for places to bolt it but there are no holes.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
