Lifting engine and transmission together??

Hey guys,
I was just wondering if I can lift the engine and transmission out of the truck together? Anybody know? Can the bell housing handle the weight OK?

*EDIT* You guys can still answer this for the benefit of others, but I just realized that I have to change the clutch anyway, so I gotta separate the engine and transmission no matter what. So that makes my questions pretty much irrelevant.

lol, well I haven't tried it but I don't see why not, the bolts holding the 2 together are pretty beefy and there's a few of them. Not sure if there is enough room though, when I pulled just the engine it was tight but I had the ARB bumper still on.

I've done it but with the straps on the engine and trans at the same time to spread the load out and keep it balanced. The fact that there was no body on the 90 at the time helped.

Its not only possible, I highly recommend it for several reasons:
1) Its a bitch to reinstall the motor to mate up with a trans in place.
2) The weight of the motor, trans, and tcase might actually budge the crossmember out of position (i.e. its easier to shift the crossmember with all that weight to work with) and that cross member has to move to get the stuff out.
3) It is so damned easy to replace a clutch or do what ever you want with the whole assembly out
4) The motor supports the front of the trans anyway, so you have to support it once the motor is out (partially the reason for item 1)
4) using a engine puller and a load leveller, its just not that difficult.

The bellhousing can handle it fine. I've done it more than once.

If the fenders are off the truck, you'll have a much happier day.

Thanks for the replies guys, I don't think space will be a problem, because the engines just sitting on the frame right now, no body to deal with at all.


Thanks again!

Ive lifted diesel engine and gearbox with a strap around the bellhousing (whole lot balances nicely)and 300tdi engine and box using the lifting eyes on the engine plus an extra one on the box both without problems.
