Removing 200tdi engine - remove lt77/lt230 also?

Hey folks, well, it's time to lift the engine off the frame and set it down for a few days.

1. When I lift the engine out of the truck, is it ok to simply unbolt the driveshafts, and lift the engine, LT77, and LT230 altogether? Or should I remove the LT77/LT230 combo first, then the 200tdi engine? All this assuming that I have rigged properly and leveled the load with chains.

2. Is it ok to just rest the engine/transmission/transfer case on the oil pan temporarily? I've done this with other (smaller) engines but never with the 200tdi.

If you did split them it seems like it'd be a good opportunity to put in a new clutch and TO bearing.

Good point Tony. I've sent Mike an email asking how old the clutch is. Any ideas on the cheapest place to buy a kit online?

No matter what, replace the clutch fork with a reinforced one....

Center of gravity is pretty far back when your dealing with engine/tranny/transfer combo and I find it easier to remove engine by itself. Cuts down on the number of beers you have to buy since you probably can do it by yourself. Putting it back in - maybe one buddy.
