One day engine out.

Well, it took all day but I was able to drive the D90 in the drive way in the morning and by the evening the engine, transmission, and T-case were out, the engine is now on a stand and the transmission is separated. I didn't think I could do it in a day just by myself, but there you go! Very happy with the progress as tomorrow it looks like snow.

Took it all out in one chunk? That must have been fun to balance.

Yeah, although "fun" is a tricky word! The real question on the whether or not it was worth doing in one chunk will be if I decide to put it back in one chunk. There are definitely drawbacks, but I don't think I could have removed it in one day doing it piecemeal. Odds are, I will attempt to reverse the same procedure. As a few have said, one lump is easier than many lumps.

Could you remove just the engine in one day? How many people would it take?

Yes, I removed my RRC's engine and the D90's engine in a day, one person. It is easier than doing the the big lump of both. Seems I always do these things by myself. Really the only time you need another hand is to help the navigating but even that if you take it slow and smooth, one person is fine.

With engine crane, about two to three hours depending on condition of fasteners. The trick is to remove the exhaust and manifolds, raise the engine enough to get the rubber mounts out and then lower the whole mess onto the frame rails. This allows a little better access to the otherwise unattainable bellhousing bolts. I had to use a combination of several different 9/16ths wrenches...one offset end wrench, one regular end wrench and a couple of odd wobble extensions, one 18" extension and one stubby wrench handle. Each bolt requires a slightly different approach. I was standing on the frame rails inside the engine bay and reaching down behind the heads for the uppers and on my back underneath with the long extension for the ones on the side.

One people.

Jamie,

The current driveline is actually in decent condition except that the 1st to 2nd and 4th to 5th synchro are a little loose--my wife doesn't like that, so she told me to fix it. ;-) I don't get that kind of "permission" to change things that often. Let me know if you need a used LT77!
