Ok, I was thinking that DOHC was just one cam over each head, but its dual cams on each head.....gotcha.
Whats the best way to yank the motor? Will it come straight out the top with the manifolds, tranny, and steering shaft disconnected?
Is it better to drop the motor and k-member together out the bottom?
Another question is. When one of these motors fail what normally is the problem? From what i've been reading they are pretty stout motors. Seems like the #7 and #8 wrist pins are the only thing I see come up breaking on stock marks?
The guy im picking the car up from said he was driving 65mph and the motor died and made some racket so he pulled it over. Then it would turn over very slowly but not fire. So he quit messing with it. Does that sound like wrist pins breaking causing the pistons to wedge themselves in the bore?
