Engine removal

Hi everyone,. I have all the tin off the engine to clean and now I think I would like to drop it and work on it off a bench or stand. Is it just the rear motor mount and the bolts to the tranny to do so? I was looking for a vid online to show me. Thanks again Steve

Have you ever had the powerpack out and separated the Transaxle and engine?

The input shaft is your enemy...

We can walk you thru it it you want to go ahead.

And because of that and 50 years of issues developing with all the small parts, I also suggest just dropping the whole drivetrain.

If you stay with the engine only idea, use a bottle jack on the differential lid, yes, pushing up on the sheetmetal under the rear window (backlite!) to keep the angle of the differential snout going down.

Note, the input shaft is the enemy, because as you try to remove the engine, the differential/transmission gets lighter, causing it to rise, putting the input shaft in a bind, usually resulting in a broken differential snout!thumbs down

Now you know why I say remove as a unit, just like GM.
