Started snowing today so it was a great excuse to stay indoors and plow on with the engine work. Transmission, entire intake system, heat exchanger & oil filter, clutch and flywheel disassembled so the engine can be mounted to the stand.
Then just continued taking everything off; chain tensioner, cam angle sensor, water pump and cam cover off.
Next I will be proceeding by removing the oil pan, sump, cams and then the chain can come out. Then I can proceed with the head work, which I will probably carry out at work in the workshop as they have all the specialist tools.
