Hey Guys thanks to Bryan's prep work we only had to spend about 3 hours on it total - and that's because we had a tough time removing the bolt though the rear motor mount. Since I had just done mine this summer - it was pretty easy. Kudo's to Bryan - he's on his way to grab my Cherry Picker and Load Leveler. I'm sure he will keep us all posted.
Protect your front bumper because you might hit it with the cherry picker.
Make sure the cherry picker is VERY close to top of engine. Nothing is more irritating that lifting the engine, not being able to clear the fenders, dropping the engine back in, taking slack out of chain and then being able to pull the engine.
Make sure you have the right metric bolts to bolt the engine to the stand, Some of the bolts bolt into the block w/o a nut. 1/2 of the stock bolts were too small to pass through my engine stand so while the engine hung in the air I ran to the hardware store.
Take the clutch, flywheel dust plates and rear oil seals off, before you mount the engine to a stand. Once on the stand you can't reach the bolts for these parts.
Pictures, pictures, and video if you have it. I had to go back to my picures dozens of times and I have to referncethe video I took several time because the angle was not right in the pictures.
