I have the front suspension completely removed and I’m waiting to get my new 5 lug axles and SN95 spindles. I am also placing the order for the K-member, a-arms, coilovers camber plates, full length sub-frame connectors and an engine rebuild kit today.





My dilemma is I have never removed an engine before. The buddy that is helping me has removed a couple of 4cylinders back in the day. I guess I’m wondering if there is a FAQ, instructions, tips and tricks for removing the engine. I would hate to start in on it and start removing stuff that doesn’t need to be removed or possibly breaking something.



Thanks in advance.

We got the engine and trans out; while we were at it we dropped the rack and K-member also. I wish I would have know that the trans would dump 4 quarts of fluid on the floor before I took the shaft out. Now I have 50 lbs of cat litter on the floor and one confused cat. I also test fit the new Cervini's Cobra R hood. Here are some pics if you are interested.

not my favorite hood but definetly nice, yeah getting the engine and trans out, best bet would be to (if u are able to get the car up high enough) drop the k-member with engine and trans still attached, probibly the easiest way to put it back in too... and as for the 4 liters of atf on ur floor, yeah that sucks, put a sergical glove over the tail shaft seal as soon as the drive shaft comes out but i am sure this all would have been more helpful a day or 2 ago? any more questions let me know, either post here or msg me if it becomes invisable
