ENGINE REMOVAL: METHODS AND PRECAUTIONS
If it has been decided that an engine must be removed for overhaul or major repair work, certain preliminary steps should be taken. Locating a suitable work area is extremely important.
A shop is, of course, the most desirable place to work. Adequate work space along with storage space for the vehicle is very important. If a shop or garage is not available, at the very least a flat, level, clean work surface made of concrete or asphalt is required.
Cleaning the engine compartment and engine prior to removal will help keep tools clean and organized. An engine hoist or A-frame will also be necessary. Make sure that the equipment is rated in excess of the combined weight of the engine and its accessories.
Safety is of primary importance, considering the potential hazards involved in lifting the engine out of the vehicle.
If the engine is being removed by a novice, a helper should be available. Advice and aid from someone more experienced would also be helpful.
There are many instances when one person cannot simultaneously perform all of the operations required when lifting the engine out of the vehicle.
