Installing engine/transmission question

For those who have done this, did you find it easier to install the transmission first and then the engine, or the engine first and then the transmission. I just took both of them out for rebuild, and am looking for maybe a faster or easier way. Working on 67 Mustang Convertible with 302 Engine and C4 transmission. Thanks

I personally always do engine frist then transmission. I have found its easier to get a transmission to line up with an engine than and engine to line up with a transmission.

Thumbs up

yup, this all depends upon your preference.

i've done this three different ways and the easiest for me was to remove the entire powertrain as a single unit. of course this is the most unbalanced way as well and requires some deft manuevering.

if you really want to, install the engine first, then the tranny. it's definitely easier to line the tranny up once the engine's in place. :s5
