I bought this today: Grip Engine Cradle — 1000lb. Capacity Item# 158857 Discount Price $34.99 so that I can get the motor to the rebuilder. I will be removing it at the base's Auto Hobby Shop with the assistance of a couple of friends. I am getting it rebuilt with 9:1 compression and a mild cam. Was told it would be ~300 hp, but anything is better than its current, very tired state--235,000 miles. It won't even rev past 4000 rpm. Now for my question: What do I pull out with the motor? My chassis manual says to unbolt the transmission from the bellhousing, but I think I remember someone on here saying to take the engine with the xmission. Which way is the easiest for lining it back up on reinstall? Any other helpful hints will be appreciated, since I haven't pulled a motor in about 10 years. Thanks!!
