Pulled the motor from the doner car today, will put the motor on the stand tomorrow and start getting it ready. Some pics of how a REAL engine pull goes:

The doner car:

How to pull the engine from a real car. Out the top, no hood removal, no radiator removal, no a/c removal. Try that on your 4.6 Mustang. The shop's Token Black Guy supervises:


Moose_9c1 utilizes delicate precision technique to reposition the engine hoist.


All tools required to pull an engine. Not pictured: sawzall and torches.


Token Black Guy supervisor reveals his foreign policy.

nice pull! I was a tad more drastic on my pullout (i had to save the car):


converter was still ON the engine WITH flexplate (and loaded of transmission juice) engine mounts and tranny stayed in.


motor sat here at least 2 weeks


this is where it sat next for now, forever. i had fun making my own engine support

When we started fliping the motor out that end came loose first
Before removal at that time I didnt want to turn the motor but I should have.. now it disassembled into unique parts and I finally saw why it was failing..
