Have read from the beginning..

Great tips and tricks all the way. I am working on my 2nd R75/7 project.

I have discover this:

1. take time... if something is not going right.. go and have a beer.. think about it.
2. take lots of pictures... especially on the wiring stuff. (before you pull it apart) connect well.
3. I have found that disconnecting the drive shaft and pulling the engine mounts and sliding the engine a head makes it very easy to unplug the tranny and lube the spline, inspect for leaks and change the neutral electric sender. I think the brass senders are better then aluminum and are available at Hucky's

And lastly I know you all do this.. enjoy.
