All mine are the same.

Hi Tim!  I took a look at all fourteen posts you've made in the nearly two weeks you've been with us and I do not see any evidence that any of them are, or have been, locked.  The symbol for a locked post is a little padlock. :)

4banger - I'm fairly sure there is a law stating no GMs in Pintos.

Why would you dress up the car & put mud flaps on it ?

Battery tray removal-the bolt at the bottom
« on: June 30, 2010, 10:46:12 PM »
79 with 2.3l. The exhaust pipe is hitting this bolt. Do I have to remove the exhaust first? Engine is coming out, so that will be happening anyway, but just curious. I did try prying on the exhaust a bit, but didn't have much success.
Thanks,
Russ

I've removed it once. I had to have my brother hold the bolt still with an open end wrench from the engine side while I removed the bolt from the wheel side then jam the bolt out by pushing it around until it fell out. I don't think I put it back in because it was so hard to get out.

Thanks. Guess I will just wait until I pull the engine this weekend.
Going to be getting frustrated enough, no use adding to it by doing something that will be easier later.
