1. Jack up the car as high as you can.
2. Put jack stands under the the proper lift points.
3. Disconnect all hoses, wires, speedo cable (if equipped) and clutch cable (or hydro line depending on application)
4. Disconnect shift linkage.
5. Put a nice flat piece of wood on jack and place jack under oil pan.
6. Raise jack until you can get the weight of the motor off the mounts.
7. Unbolt mounts.
8. Slowly lower motor checking to make sure everything as been disconnected.
9. Drag motor from under car scratching the ever living hell out of the oil pan in the process.
10. Enjoy cold one while you think about going to harbor freight to get a hoist cause you realize how much of a bitch it is to pull and install motors without it.

i like 99ej6t's way use scissor jacks remove wheels and most of the suspension and make sure to use cardboard or carpet, so you don't scratch anything plus you wont have to drop the mortor you should be able to hold it up and lower it slowly.

I usually disassemble it in the pull and physically lift it out. Pull the head, pull the tranny and then lift out the block by hand. It's heavy but not that heavy.

But I have a hoist now and just pull the whole mess out as one piece.

i've done it

remove head and intake mani out the top. unbolt the tranny (dont forget to remove the starter first ) dont forget to suport the tranny pull that out. then support the motor unbolt and pull it out....head is like 20-30 lbs, tranny maybe 35-50lbs and the block is only like 35-50lbs dont forget to drain it first...


or pull the head, jack the car up as high as possible place jack stands under the side jack points on there highest setting. place a board inbetween the jack and oil pan to help disapate the weight over the hole pan and not the 2" round jack point. lift enought to take the weight off the mounts, unbolt. lower jack with motr on it. slide motor out(you may have to remove your front bumper for extra clearance coming out the front w/ the motor

or go to harbor freight engine hoist is like $100 and you have it the rest of your life

I've never used a hoist to swap or remove major components from any of my or any other's cars in my garage. Just jack up the front of the car as high as you can and then drop the parts and slide out from under it. If you are doing this as a 1-person job like I've done many a time, remove the head first, then remove the trans, then drop the block...purely for the weight-factor. Unless you think you can handle the long block together.

Chain fall and a tree?I dont have a hoist(cherry picker) in my garage.I use a chain fall of the rafters.Done it this way since i was 15 pulling big blocks out of ford trucks under the oak tree.I had to build a frame out of 4x4's once to pull an engine out of an omni.(When i was down and out living in a trailer park).I like to be able to move every thing slowly without gravity binding on shit.Plus you gotta have something for the install.Unless you are just pulling not replacing?
Chain falls or come alongs are cheap from junkor freight.Fit in the corner and can get you unstuck too.(back in the mud truck days).
Dropping it under the car and dragging it out is a pain in the ass if you ask me.I tried it.Now try that it in reverse.Ya have fun with that.Getting the trans and engine to line up to bolt together without binding.Not going to happen easy at all.I have problems sometimes with the engine on the chain fall and a floor jack under the trans with a trans plate on it.

^^^ lol. I was gonna say park by a tree sling chain over the biggest branch and get 4 friends to pull but thats very redneck and I've seen it go very wrong. Me and 4 guys dropped a 454 on the front of a chevelle all because the guy didnt wanna drive to my garage where I have an electric hoist.

lol, I bought an engine hoist a while back I never knew how much work i'd give it. It paid for itself by now, got it at Harbor Freight Tools. it was on sale for like $120-160 don't remember exactly. it goes for $180 now HERE.
