pulling engine/hood clearance


Is there enough clearance on 70/71 Tor/Ranch body to pull
the engine without removing the hood (assuming the radiator and front
grill are removed)? Engine is 351C. I can't really tell by looking.
Anyone done this particular operation before?

Dunno how much different they are, but I know my '68 Ranchero is smaller. I
pulled my engine without removing the hood, or pulling EITHER the radiator
OR the grille assembly.
