For some reason this site was hard to cache in my browser. Took a few days of returning and checking the box to keep me logged in. Now I never log out.

I found the easyest is to go through the bottom, i have access to a fork lift so what i have done is get everything disconnected from the engine and tranny then saved the left and right mounts for last. I used the engine hoist to lower the engine and trans down on a couple blocks of wood then used the forkift to swing the car away from the engine. I just hooked 1 chain to each motor mount spot on the left and the right side of the car. It really works out slick if you dont have a car lift. I have also heared of people setting the engine down on a dolly or a heavy duty creeper then using the engine hoist to raise up the car enough to slide the engine out. This is a little more scary since the front half of the car may exceed the limits of the engine hoist.. but its worked out so far.

I just got done pulling two 165 motors in the last two weeks. I dropped the motor out the bottom onto two jacks with a piece of plywood on top of them, my ghetto dolly. I then raised the front of the car with the lift set to 1/2 ton, it did it easily. Then i just carefully pushed the motor out the bottom. I didnt have anyone help at all, its not too hard.
