Question about Cars & Trucks
Disconnect and remove the battery, drain the cooling system and remove the radiator, to insure it doesn't get damaged and to afford more working space.Drain the engine oil and remove the alternator and power steering pump (if equipped) Disconnect all electrical connection and,using masking tape, tag all connectors for the reinstall process, same with the vacuum hoses, and secure them out of the way. Disconnect and plug the fuel lines and throttle cables, securing them away. Disconnect the exhaust head pipe, torque converter bolts and transmission bell housing bolts. As the engine in the pic shows, the motor mount does not connect to the trans so you will have to support the trans (or remove it with the engine and separate it later) Using an engine support fixture and engine cradle, slightly lift the engine a little to remove the engine weight from the mounts, remove the mounts, pull (or pry if necessary) the engine away from the trans, and raise the engine till it clears the engine bay. Make sure you have disconnected the hidden ground wires usually located on the firewall side of the block. Good luck
