Have a friend with an '86 SE, he's planning him a 3800 swap. (Will be on this forum shortly, if enough of my poking and prodding has taken hold.)

Problem is, he hasn't dropped a cradle yet, and I was wondering if there were any resources, preferably with pictures, on how to drop the Iron Duke that I could link him to? I don't have the time to walk him through it or help him for right now, nor am I nearby. (He still lives in NY.) I figure the best thing would be a thread here where it's been done that I can point him to.

Well, if he's anything like me, he'd rather find all the idiosyncrasies of a removal before executing it. He's done 60*v6 to 3800 swaps in other cars. Fiero is just his latest.
