Pullling the trans out with it? If you've got a good lift take it out the top. I just pulled the T1 out of my 85 GLH-T the other night, and the T2 out of my 87 Z a few weeks back. Both came out the top, and once hooked up to the hoist were out of the car and on the ground in 10 mins.

pretty darn near impossible and way more difficult to pull out the top if you have a manual trans.

step by step instructions in a shop manual,

really, I take it out the bottom with the trans MUCH easier. use cherry picker to drop package on to a cart or solid creeper. then use cherry picker to lift front of car high enough to roll engine out . I just did this on my race car.


I still want more beer for the job. makes things feel better.

Bet i can get a motor out the top faster than you could go through the bottom.

what, no one has any sense of humor? geez lighten up

taking these motors out the top with a manual trans is WAY MORE difficult than out the bottom. you can't pull the motor and trans out the top as quick and easy as out the bottom.

if you have an automatic, then out the top if fine with the trans staying in the vehicle.

I vote that the easiest way to remove the engine (from say my standpoint) would be from the bottom. I've been around for a couple removals and it usually takes more than one person to remove from the top, also more dangerous if you're not too familiar with the vehicle (and you aren't a mechanic doing it all the time). Just my

I've never tried dropping it out the bottom, although I've heard good things about removing it that way. You said you had a good hoist, if you decide to go from the top this is how I would approach it: Obviously disconnect fuel and all electrical connections to the engine, as well as shift linkage, clutch cable, exhaust, etc... and pull the axles out of the car. Remove the front mount altogether, I've tried in the past to take an engine out with it attached, it just wants to puncture the radiator. On that note just pull the radiator anyway, lol Also get rid of the bobble strut and bracket on the back of the trans, just one more thing to get in the way. I like to remove the crank pulley, it likes to hit the passenger framerail on the way out. Once you have the motor attached by only the passenger and trans mount, secure your hoist to it and put enough tension on the chain to start to hold the weight of the engine. At that point remove the trans mount bolt through the driver fenderwell. Depending on where you're hooked to the motor the trans may drop a bit once the bolts out. Last thing I do is remove the two bolts on the passenger mount and then I'm ready to hoist the engine out. If you have an engine leveler you can angle the engine/trans so the trans is down and the engine is up, this way you can maneuver the trans mount away from the body mount so it doesnt hit it when the engine is going up. Or once the hoist is securely holding the weight, before you remove the two passneger mount bolts, you can remove the trans mount altogether, again like the other ones it gets in the way. At this point its just a matter of jacking the engine high enough to clear the core support. I try to use one of the bolt holes in the head for the AC bracket and on the drivers rear of the head to connect my chain, it tends to keep the engine more or less upright as it comes out

ive done it both ways. manual five speed in a omni. imo i like going out the bottom. took alittle longer but i didnt have to worry about the paint job. first i pulled the head and lifted it off with a cherry picker. then jacked the car up and set on car jacks. then used the cherry picker to lower short block and tranny on to a cart i built. then rolled the motor and trans out the passenger side. the reason i pulled the head first, so i didnt have to raise the car up as high. pretty much a one man opperation. sence i quit drinking its hard to get the old buddies over to help anymore. lol putting it back in the reverse order. the head will be last.
