Book Excerpt

If you've decided that an engine must be removed for overhaul or major repair work, several preliminary steps should be taken.

Locating a suitable place to work is extremely important. Adequate work space, along with storage space for the vehicle, will be needed.

If a shop or garage isn't available, at the very least a flat, level, clean work surface made of concrete or asphalt is required.

Cleaning the engine compartment and engine before beginning the removal procedure will help keep your tools and your hands clean.

An engine hoist or A-frame will also be necessary. Make sure the equipment is rated in excess of the combined weight of the engine and 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.

Plan the operation ahead of time. Arrange for or obtain all of the tools and equipment you'll need prior to beginning the job.

Some of the equipment necessary to perform engine removal and installation safely and with relative ease are (in addition to an engine hoist) a heavy duty floor jack, complete sets of wrenches and sockets as described in the front of this manual, wooden blocks and plenty of rags and cleaning solvent for mopping up spilled oil, coolant and gasoline.

If the hoist must be rented, make sure that you arrange for it in advance and perform all of the operations possible without it beforehand. This will save you money and time.

Well organized and written. Great wiring diagrams too.
I have used both Chilton's and Haynes manuals for years and while they are both good books, Chilton frequently seems to go a bit further in providing information and illustrations for complex tasks.

Where's my door handle?
I mainly purchased this manual to guide me through replacing my 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ's black outside door handles with chrome ones. These are the square ones shown on the Jeep on the cover of the manual. I was very disappointed to find that the manual only covers the rectangular outside door handles. I got better help watching two YouTube videos on the subject. Although, like many videos on YouTube, they show what they did more than they show you how they did it. I finally got them installed but with great difficulty and about two and one half hours labor. A friend at a body shop looked it up in their labor guide and it allowed one and one half hours. Two and one half hours out of my day isn't bad but it's not an easy task. You have to have plenty of patience and study the parts and work blind by feel up in the door shell. I can't evaluate the rest of the manual at this time.
