When I have to pull an engine I sure wish I had a door on both sides.

Or no doors at all! :-)

Steve, how are you making out with the roadster?

I finally got to the mindset of "easier over a longer period of time", I took the body off of my 23 touring when I swapped the flywheel and replaced a planet gear bushing. Kind of like taking a longer and slower drive and getting to enjoy the scenery better. (I work in robotics, stuff that was not designed with ease of repair in mind). So I took the long road with the T repairs and enjoyed the trip. It also let me fix a few items found while taking stuff apart, like a broken spare tire frame mount tab. The took longer, but I enjoyed every minute of it (well, almost).

I have auto correct! Should be "It took longer"

Nice- It changed "hate" to "have", my PC has become PC! Excuse me while I shoot my computer...

Steve, maybe that's why my 26 coupe has a driver's door...as it has nothing to do with using it to get in the car.

Tim, that's what prompted the post. I'm just getting around to pulling the engine/transmission so I can dig into it and see what's up (or down).

Nope, its not. My T doesn't have a drivers door. Just like you, I have to use the passengers side. But we had so many different coach/body builders, all doing their own thing and in their own style, I know some Oz cars did have front doors on both sides.
Cheers,
Rob
