Spent the weekend changing out the broken damper plate. What a job! Things went fairly well, although I ended up spending a LOT of time on a stuck bellhousing bolt, and then needed to construct a small crane to help lift the transmission out of the way.
I ran out of time before things could be reassembled, and I needed to order a small scope so that I can inspect the area behind the flywheel to make sure no pieces of the old part managed to get behind it. We will be heading up soon to finish reassembly and get the next leg going!
