I will be lifting the engine out of my 96 on Wednesday. With everything stripped away, I noted a rigid tensioned vertical wire on the RH side that takes a 90 degree turn and goes through a hole in the g/box upper casing.
The end of it is slightly angled and overlaps the block by a couple of inches. It will need to be moved out of the way, but I wanted to check what it is ??
As the engine is coming out only - does the steady bar need to be detached from the g/box when the engine is raised a couple of inches OR is there sufficient play in the g/box steady bar to allow for such movement ??
