cut the axles w/ a torch or a sawzaw. or maybe your just not using a big enough hammer. the fork has never failed me. but i have a pretty big hammer.

what car are you pulling it from? If it's an 88-91, you dont have to pop the ball joints, just drop the suspension...all 4 bolts from the shock tower, then remove the fork...Axel will slide right out.

you can get a balljoint seperator from any parts store for round 1o bux i think. you try getting the bitch pin out of the linkage yet. hope youve got some roll pin punches. and if you dont care about the car then saw zaw or torch the whole front of the car off and slide the motor effortlessly frontwards. thats how i got my b18b.

lol that works on a 99-00 also... f'ed up castle nut is rounded off so i dropped the suspension and it gave me enough room by about a nut hair.

Use a chain, and 2 bolts on the motor.

I use one of the transmission bolts (take it out, loop chain thru, then reattach to motor), and the alternator bracket bolt. That's how I do it, everyone does it differently.
