Re: Engine pull help

I'd say you need to be more descriptive of the problem and work on your temper or get the torch out. It's a pretty basic operation.

Secondly, why are you pulling the bellhousing? I'd leave the bellhousing bolted to the tranny and separate it on the engine side. That way you don't have to deal with aligning the throwout bearing when you put it back.

Re: Engine pull help

If you are swapping it all out, why not pull it in one unit? Just remove the radiator/Grill and use your engine hoist to ease it out?
Thats how I pulled mine when I first got the jeep and had to redo the engine. Iwent through the tranny at the same time so it was easier to just pull it as a unit.

Good Luck. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
