Lifting point?

1998 f150, 4.6L Bad Rod.

I'm replacing the 4.6L with a 'long block' of the same size. It's been approx. 10 years since I've pulled an engine. The last was an '85 Marquis with a 5.0L. It had a throttle body injector system.

This 4.6L has port injectors.

My question is - What do I lift the engine from? The older engines I pulled, I always used a chain diagonally across the intake manifold. With this 4.6, the 'intake' is aluminum and high. Do I have to remove the aluminum intake first? I am afraid to lift the engine from the intake, don't want to warp / break it.

I would like to have it on the new engine before putting it back in. It's easier to get to all of the bolts.

I bought the Chiltons manual for the engine, - it says NOTHING about lifting the engine.

Thanks in advance, craigr

Re: Lifting point?

Take top manifold off and make L / angle iron bracket that bolts to lower manifold..
Or take exh manifold off and use them bolts, screwed way in....
Engine can be dropped out through bottom as well....

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
