Now it is time to remove the engine. From our last page we explained all of the parts that needed to be removed to get to this point. See Starting Engine Removal
We hook up our engine crane, also known a a "Cherrypicker". We use a chain to hook up to the engine lift brackets. (See 2nd picture below) One is on the drivers side front, the other is on the passenger side rear of the engine. This way it will be balanced. You can also use an adapter instead of a chain that allows you to crank the engine weight back and forth to balance it.
While lifting the engine you also need to raise the transmission by using a flow jack under it so as to raise everything equally to make it easier to remove the engine.
