god i love stupidity!!! lmfao!!! that was classic!! ive dropped engine/trans out the bottom twice, way fast and easier. IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TOOLS!!! engine and trans on floor juck!! thats a riot!!! lmfao!! thank god he wasnt hurt though!! and ive also pull JUST motors out the top! but you have to pull all the acc. off to move engine over to pull off trans. i pulled sinisters engine out from top, left trans in car. but now im thinking about droppin trans so i can bolt up the engine to the trans ALOT faster and e.z'er!!! then lower the car down on the whole unit as a whole and bolt right up! thats my take on things!! still dieing fom that vid!!! omg lmfao-rolf!!! JFC!! WTF was he thinking!!

why would any one drop a k-frame on ANY of these cars to drop a motor or trans???? the k is behind everything!!!! makes no scence???

XD a K-Frame is a part, he is not referring to the platform.

My point is that statements "ALL FWD dodges....". I work on ALL FWD chrysler products all day everday, so some require k-member removal.

This was this afternoons project. Since the weather couldn't decide to rain, descend a tornado, or be sunny, I decided not to finish welding a patch in the Omni floor. I instaed decided to test fit my engine with the TBI header in the car to see if the turbo fits, or hits anything. I took the short block, bolted the head on with a test gasket and old bolts, attached the 555 and the manifolds and went to drop it in.











From off the ground to bolted in via the trans and passenger mount in 20 minutes, aside from the trans mount giving me a little grief it was smooth sailing. I had mentioned in an earlier post how an engine leveler makes a world of difference, since I was putting the motor in I wanted to take a few pics of it. Not to say one methodology is better than the other, but since the original poster has a hoist wanted to show how the leveler helps.
Oh BTW the TBI header and turbo fit beautifully! Plenty of clearance around the turbo, the exhaust is gonna be a little tight but it clears the firewall with room to spare!

As everyone can see, it is a matter of preference, what you're comfortable with, and how you want to go about doing it.

I had my brother-in-law helping and you might consider getting another pair of hands - as well - to help steady the engine as it is being pulled up with the engine hoist.
Remove the hood. I recall the power steering pump being a problem and hanging things up. I recall the greasy pump being somewhat of an issue. Once the bolts were removed the pump had to be twisted or turned to remove it out of the bracket. Remove that, and the starter, radiator, exhaust. Support the engine. Unbolt the transaxle. Disconnect electrical connections (in particular the oxygen sensor in the exhaust). Cut the hoses. The job is pretty straight forward. I suppose it took about 3 hours. Put tags on your parts so you know where things go into place. Take your time! It was my first engine removal and it went pretty smoothly. I verified my VIN numbers on the engine block while it was out! Numbers matching!
Take some pictures of the engine bay, before and during the engine removal. My biggest problem was putting it all back together after repainting and reconditioning the parts. The parts manual was a big help with many of the small insignificant parts. Good luck!
Mike

There are countless stories of guys in auto shops dropping cars off lifts and other shop disasters. Those occurances are a fact of life a workshop or construction site. No biggie. He was lucky that he wasn't hurt.

i did the first one out the top with a hoist, pain in the ass. the rest all have been out the bottom. i dont even need a hoist or a jack to pull one out the bottom, even with a 5 speed.

1-remove all engine acessories- alt,distributor, water pump and water pump housing, ac compressor and the bracket they attach to
2- remove the head, manifolds attached.
3-remove starter
4-remove block to trans reinforcement brackets
5-remove pass side engine mount
6-remove bellhousing bolts
7-remove bobble strut and front trans mount. you can just remove the center bolt, mount does not need to completely come off.

when you pull the trans mount bolt out the short block will drop down at a pretty sharp angle. the top of the block will now be below the frame rail, simply grab the crank pulley and pull the short block off the trans, should slide right off with a little muscle and drop a short distance to the ground.
if you're pulling an from a car with an auto, leave one of the bellhousing bolts in so when you pull the trans mount bolt it doesnt just fall off. you want to lower the whole thing down to as close to the ground as possible before you let it drop so you dont damage anything.
ive used a jack to handle the raising and lowering but the last time i didnt even use a jack, just pulled the bolts pulled the shortblock off and drug it out under the front bumper.

pulling an engine out of the bottom is one of the very few times i prefer to be working on gravel versus a concrete floor. it has a some cushion to it so the short block wont get jacked up and you dont have to put the car on jackstands, just drag it out from under the front bumper.
