My restoring project going forward.

Now I have to take out the engine. I just encountered a few problems / questions.

Do I have to take the starter motor away before I can lift up the engine?

Which are the best lifting points in the engine?

And please could someone send me a few pics about the oem alternator.

Thanks already for your help. I really appreciate it.

Lift the back end of the car as high as you can. That will give you way more room to pull the engine. I normally pull both the engine and tranny at the same time.

I don't need to take the trans out because I'm just restoring my engine bay this time.

Thanks for the tips guys.

More to come?

BTW if you don't use the head bolts and go to another point instead ---- be sure to use grade 8 bolts! Don't trust anything else.

The engine is out. Everything went pretty smooth. Now it's time to paint the engine bay and the engine itself.

Thanks for everyone for the help.

Did take any pics or video that you could post. We always like to see before and after shots.
