Preference For Pulling Motor

Discussion in 'SN95 4.6L Mustang Tech' started by rockyracoon, Sep 21, 2013.

  1. Im getting ready to pull the motor and I would like to leave the tranny ( t-3650) in place. I have pulled both as a unit in the past and also have dropped the trans first but this time I would like to leave the trans in place.
     
  2. I think installing it would a bigger pain than it's worth. Trying to line up an input shaft into the clutch would be problematic.

  4. I personally always pull just the engine, and leave the transmission in place. It's enough fun just getting the engine out, without adding the extra complication of a long transmission on the end of the engine. Sometimes I even pull the transmission first. While the engine is out, I might as well check the transmission, and at least check/adjust the end play.
     
  5. The actual question is "preference for pulling motor" all the other replies seemed to be able to figure that out.

  7. I like pulling the trans and motor as a whole unit....Makes it a lot easier than laying on my back and trying to stab the thing!
     
  8. I've pulled my motor without the trans and left it in place. I just left a jack under the transmission so it didn't move from the place where it separated from the block. Made installing the motor a lot easier. Also, I'm sure you already know, but pulling the radiator and everything gives in front of the motor gives you ungodly amounts of room. Haha.
     
  9. I always preferred the dual Allison aircraft V-12 setups

  11. Seriously though, if you have a way to get the car up high enough, unbolt the k member and tranny cross member and leave it all on the ground and and just raise the car up.
