Anyone know how hard these things are to install on a late 80's model camero.  Got suckerd into it by my cousin.  Just wanting to know how big a sh!tstorm I got myself involved in...

What engine?  What ever engine it is, you're in for a shitty time, those engines are shoehorned in that space for the most part and are hard to work on.  (Unless I'm thinking of the post 94 f body?)

Bow out gracefully, he's only a cousin. [;)]

Looks like you blew a seal.

No No - it's just ice cream.

Its pretty easy on a late model mustang. I cant believe the engine compartment would be any more cramped in a 80's camaro.  Worst part would be if the engine is dirty and the bolts caked with rust and crud.

Late 80's camaros have very little room between the aprons, and the engine. If it's a V8 car, slowly back away, or come up sick or something, it's a pain in the ass! I use to work on those things, and even a simple task like changing the spark plugs was nearly impossible. So you're shitstorm, just turned into a tornado of feces!

Thanks for the advise, I ran far far away from that mess.  I am thinking about faking my own death just to be on the safe side.
