Default Engine Removal

Someone posted these links for me a few years ago when I had to change the motor in my Camaro.

The two links go together. The first is pictures and the second is step by step instructions. With these instructions you can drop the motor out the bottom in your garage at home without having to buy a lot of expensive tools.

Good stuff. I went out the top, but I think next time I'll try the bottom.

definitely good read.... they go in from the top pretty easily provided you remove one valve cover and rotate motor 90 degrees front facing the drivers side.... drop in and then rotate. move abs and brake lines out of the way and remove radiator and shroud/fan.... goes in pretty easily....

Are you offering the use of your lift?

You can do the same by using a engine hoist and lifting the body off the kmember!

That's the way outlined in the document, which is the way I did it.

You can do the same without the hoist and just have 2 jacks holding the body up at an angle. Like this

And pull it out like this

Jackstands are ... where? Holy crap, that's scary. But ya gotta do what you gotta do...

I'd much rather use a hoist, but I'm fairly confident I could count on one hand the number of times I've been able to work on my car on one.

It wasn't that sketchy, the rear tires weren't going anywhere and the car wouldn't move from the pads on the jacks.
