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.
