Question engine removal without transmission removal

98 Vic lx . Hello fellow Gearheads , I am new to Vic and have tried searching with keywords like ( engine removal and engine swap ) to no avail . I have decided to remove engine and leave trans as my e hoist does not run well on my gravel driveway on plywood . Less weight the better . I know it can be done as I have seen pictures . Mainly problems with exhaust pipes and starter . Please only chime on if you have done it this way . Thanks ......

Re: engine removal without transmission removal

As long as you've got everything disconnected and supported, it's not that hard, I've done it with old vehicles. Just make sure that the tranny is supported. The problem is putting it back together. you have to convince someone to crawl under and line things up while you're bouncing around a small block 8 over their head... unless you trust someone with the engine hoist. If weight is that much of an issue, try dropping the tranny, then pull the engine.

Hi Catskinner . Thanks for reply . Are you talking Panther platform ?
Do you know if the starter has to be removed to clear the crossmember before engine alone can be removed ? That starter sure seems tough to remove ..........

Re: engine removal without transmission removal

Last one I was involved with was a 94 F150. I don't remember pulling an engine on a Vic, LTD, maybe a Galaxie...

Anyway, we dropped the starter, backed the tranny back and held on blocks, then yanked the engine. To help minimize moving, remove the hood, pull the radiator and grill for a little flexibility.

Re: engine removal without transmission removal

I have R&R engines many times from Panther platforms. The engines can be removed without pulling the starter, but it is difficult to reinstall the engine without damaging the starter on the cross member.

The starter is not as difficult to remove as it first appears. Use a long extension on the upper bolt and access the bolt from the front of the cross member. Don't forget the "extra" bolt on the passenger side motor mount. It's easily overlooked.

It's much easier to remove the engine and trans as a unit, and you can do a better job of aligning the two upon reassembly, if they are removed together. If your engine hoist can't handle the weight of the engine and trans, I would consider it only marginally safe with just the engine.

Sometimes it's easier to roll the car backwards, as you lift the engine, rather than trying to move the hoist with the weight of the engine and trans hanging on it.
