It's much less work to pull the engine from the top which requires removing the hood so that the engine crane and engine will clear.The trans would be left in the cradle.Before removing the hood,a sharp scribe should be used to trace the outline of the hood hinges on the hood.If this is not done before hood removal,getting the hood lined up with the fenders and everything else will be VERY difficult.As far as rebuilding the engine,it isnt very cost effective anymore.Just for example,if you thoroughly indexed all the rod and main caps,then tore the engine down and took it to a machine shop,JUST the machine work performed by the machine shop will come up to about $600.Then you have to take it home and assemble it.Pistons have to be purchased,rings,main and rod bearings,cam bearings,camshafts possibly,timing set,water pump,head gaskets...etc. In these times,it is much more cost effective to just purchase a remanufactured engine like a Jasper that comes with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.Or you could check out a good used engine from a salvage yard such as LKQ who is nationwide and has warranties available.
