In Reply to: pulling an engine posted by mike on June 26, 2001 at 10:04:21:

Pulling it all in one piece is the best way, IMHO. Of course, the hood must be removed, and the radiator out as well. It helps to have a load-leveler on your hoist. Keeping the engine fairly level, work it toward the front-driver's (U.S.) side of the car. As it comes forward, raise it. Eventually a bit of the transmission will hang up on the steering center rod, and will require some coaxing. At some point the engine/tranny will acquire a nearly vertical posture, lift it until it will lift no more. Then level the unit, using either the load leveler or a second hoist (hooked to the back end of the tranny housing, but NOT to the output shaft). Once it is level, shouldn't be hard to get it over the nose. You might need to remove the front wheels and lower the car a few inches if you're using a smallish crane.


is there enough clearence for the tranny and motor be pulled all at once...? anyone have a good procedure for pulling the motor...I have everything disconnected form the motor, but the tranny is still hooked up underneath...
