Re: Pull engine with transmission attached?



Yes have to pull the torsion bars back, upper ball joints disconnect from knuckle , steering shaft, brake hoses.  Advantage is the ease of putting absolutely complete assembly including exhaust manifolds in with no scratches to engine compartment paint, no prying around etc. so it's a trade off for sure. I first did it with my 68 383S Barracuda, pulling it to freshen the engine and clean and repaint the compartment and didn't want to mess up the fresh paint job on reassembly.

It seems like a lot of extra work to take out all the front end stuff to remove the engine. I've done mine about a dozen times but except for a couple times it was just the engine.

I do it from the bottom now days. The engine, trans, k member and all suspension except upper arms will sit on furniture flat dollies. I lift the front of the car up with cherry picker engine hoist.

I'm willing to wager a complete engine and trans weighs more than the front end of an early B body. If anyone is concerned about the cherry picker giving out, it would do more damage to a car if the entire engine assembly were to drop from 5 foot in the air on to front end of the car than the car body itself dropping. 

I use a 6' chain with hooks on each end and insert them in the 1 ½" holes on the bottom of the frame rails near the rad support. No need to pull the grille, bumper, splash pans, etc. 

@ Jim Jablonski:

Jim, since the bumper was off your car a quick way to rig the front of your car is to run a bolt through each end link of about 4' length of chain, then through the ends of the frame horns.

Hello,

I'm going to be pulling the engine and transmission out of my 64 Belvedere.

When I pull the 383 and 4-speed transmission out of my 64 SF I can pull them together.  Can I do the same with my 64 that has a 318 Poly and 727 automatic?  I need to work on both the engine and transmission.

Thanks
Dennis C.
