Pulling Engine?

I am going to pull the 258 out of my CJ and put a fresh long block in. My question is can I pull the engine, transmission and transfer case out all together? I want to check them out at the same time.

Re: Pulling Engine?

You'd probably want to use a leveler and remove the front clip...might have to drop the t-case skid as well as remove the tranny & t-case shifters.

Re: Pulling Engine?

Sure you can, I have done it many times, works great. You do have to remove the tranny shifter and watch the t-case shifter. Also, this may sound stupid, but make sure the picker you have is full of hydraulic fluid, adding the weight of the tranny and xcase puts extra strain on the jack. I had one give out on me, not good.
