a good suggestion would be to mark every wire where it came from, place bolts ect... in containers and mark the containers where they came from. apart from that just have a basic tool kit, a pretty straight forward job. and another suggestion get yourself a workshop manual so you can see the steps in how to do it.
are u gonna remove the motor and box, or just the motor?....
to me the motor/box together is EASIER as you dont need to do the flexplate0- torque converter bolts, and the bellhousing bolts.....
start by taking radiator off,
start at one side of the motor, and take all thingts that are connected to the engine bay and other stuff off, mark them and try remember how they go
take off the engine pipe bolts, they may be hard, ill suggest you spray with rp7 a few times, and let it soak for about 10 mins
engine mount bolts are easy (they may not come out when you undothem, but as u lift the motor a litlte to get the weight off them, they should slide out)
under the car, take the earth strap off the gearbox, the shifter off the tranny, the handbrake cable, tailshaft, transmission mount bolts
unplug ythe wiring harnesses
acceleratoir cable, blah blah blah
lift the motor out and there you go (i may have missed somethings)
We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!
XE Fairmont Ghia... Silver/Grey Met over black, soon to be v8, cant wait till i get another v8, after 3 LONG HARD YEARS
Before you start, get a whole heap of Ice Crem / Coffee containers to put nuts and bolts in. Label them all up for various parts (Engine Mounts, Alternator, Manfolds etc). Will make it much easier when it comes time to put it all back toghether.
Workshop manual will also be valuable.
Good luck mate.
