[GFS] Odds n ends

Jack,

I used the intake manifold bolts and two chains for 4 attach points (2
front and
2 rear).  I didn't go for the gusto since my front clip was assembled for
the
body shop.  I did have the torque converter and bell housing on and was
able to
angle it home.  Like I said earlier all I had to do afterwards was
alignment of
the transmission into the torque converter and the four bolts to the bell
housing.  I spent enough of my life under that car cleaning, sanding,
painting,
etc.. and was looking for anyway to speed up the process.  This worked for
me.
It's going to be an easy drop in for you with the front clip out of the
way.

The front drive boot is available.  I did get it from Atlas Obsolete as
well as
the rear u-joint.  The trick on the Fury drive train is that they really
are
Chrysler Imperial parts.  Atlas Obsolete part numbers are 817-055 front
rebuild
kit (different number if you want the boot only, so ask him) and 817-002
for the
rear u-joint.  Try your local auto parts store for the u-joint first
though.
Take the sample in hand with you.

Thank you Ed Dea & Dave Stragand for the great info.  Also, Ed, thanks for
the tips on dropping the motor in.  My front clip is off so I will
probably
be going for the gusto.

What did you use for your hoist attach points(with the chain)?  Head
bolts?
Intake Manifold bolts sans intake manifold or with?

Anyone have a source for the driveshaft boot?  Am changing out the
u-joints
as well.  Don't know how critical the boot is, but the one on the shaft is
torn - just like they always seemed to be on my '56 Belvedere back in the
early '60s (tho never had a u-joint problem) - but if I have it out might
as
well do it right if I can find a boot.

Thanks again Guys!

Jack
