Did you disconnect the hood shocks and prop up the hood higher? Did you take out the rad, and cooling fan?
Pulling the motor out with the trans attached will save you a few bloody nuckles and head aches. Its much easier to split them when they are out of the car.
However, all the pulled motors i've seen, the "pullers" left the trans in. Some guys have it down to a science! I wonder what the record time is?
theres guys around here that do it in under 2 hours!!! and their names are not luke or obi either!!! :-D
Since this is on topic, when installing the motor & trans together with a normal hoist, do most people raise the back end of the car some to get a straighter shot at the tranny tunnel?
Where is the proper place to attach the engine hoist for pulling the engine? I'm thinking that i will pull the engine and tranny as one unit. This will be my first time pulling the engine in my 87' T-type so if anyone has anymore tips they would be most appreciated.
