I'm going to TSC today, to pick up the stuff I need to pull the engine...what length of chain do you guys recommend? I bought a nifty cherry picker, when it was on sale at HF, but I think I'm just going to use the tractor again, because it's proven its worth.

Fred, instead of buying chain, get one of these, it comes with plenty of chain.

Bill,

Where do I get one and how much is it? Not sure if the wife will be kosher with it...since she quit her job, we're now on a tight budget, and she's the banker.

Had to go to Lowe's, to get the Grade 8 bolts....HD and TSC didn't have what I needed. Also, I'm glad I looked carefully at the block...the 258 has two different size bolts on it, 3/8-16 and 7/16-14.

I also took some pics today, because I have questions/concerns. The first two is of the front crossmember. The PO apparently welded the rear of the front crossmember to the frame, and the driver's side weld cracked off....was it supposed to be welded from the factory? The second two pics are of mystery holes...the passenger's side is the one with one hole and the driver's side has two, below the power steering bracket holes...what went in these holes?

My avatar isn't from The Eiger Sanction, it's from The Outlaw Josey Wales....you were close on spelling.

The two holes on the intake side front are for part of the power steering pump bracket. the spark plug side hole, has 3 grounds hooked to it. As I remember, at least three of the 258's i've had were this way.

Bill, if you look at the last pic, just above those holes are those two bolts, which is where I took the bracket off for my P/S bracket....lends more credence to the idea that my P/S might not be OE, so then the next question would be what should be bolted where the bolts are?

Fred, I was mistaken on the 2 holes in question. The top 2 are for the PS. I do have the bottom holes. One is higher than the other, and there's nothing there but dirt. This is on a "84" and "83" sorry about the error.

Bill

No worries, mine were crudded up with dirt too....I wonder if maybe those holes are for accessories for another AMC model vehicle.

Mine doesn't have anything in the 2 lower holes either, but I have a P/S system from an 83..

How did they mount the smog pump with P/S? I took my pump off when I put the P/S in it's place.. May have some thing to do with that?

On the front crossmember, there are 2 rivits on the front bottom thru the frame. I don't see anything but weld on the firewall side.
Both pictures are passenger side. Have a great weekend.
