Nice buy... I just added an 88 5ktq to my fleet. Wife put dibs on it as soon as she drove it around the corner.

We will be sorting through similar problems.

Welcome back!

..... about the trans mounts, and There's still the pass side trans mount that I didn't get to. Its mounted a little differently and blocked by the exhaust. Looks like I can just drop the cat and have a good shot at it, but then How hard is it to get out and a new one in with it mounted the way it is? Anyone have experience with this?
I replaced both sides a couple months ago... so easy a cave man can do it!

Always PITA but much easier with the CAT out... remove the little heat shield... usually need to jack the trans up just enough to get weight off it so everything will bolt back together... helps if mechanic has 2-3 elbows in the arm trying to reach the top of the big bolt! You need to do it by feel, can't see it at all and can barely reach it... try an offset box wrench

Pass side gets cooked by heat and fails, other side gets killed by hyd. and brake fluids...
