Can you remove a 3.0L Vulcan engine on a 96 Taurus out the top without
dropping the subframe?
To do so, you would have to disconnect the trannie and move the engine
over to the passenger side enough to separate the two?
seems to be only a few inches of space on the front of the engine to
do this. Any tips on doing this?
I have a engine lift, but no good way to drop the subframe out.
That's the kind of info i am looking for. It looked to me taking the
crank pulley off would buy another few inches of clearance to move
the engine over to separate it from the trannie. If you do this, can you
leave the half shafts on and all the trannie linkage and wiring?
How far off the trannie case does the motor need to be to remove it?
It also seems this vintage motor has no lifting hooks? One dude locally
i talked to says he takes the intake plenums off to make the job easier.
Is this necessary?
You made a comment out cutting the rear exhaust studs. Did you mean
flush with the nut then remove the nuts? Can you get a impact on them
with a long enough extension from below?
Thanks for the information.

All motors can be hoisted out the top if you remove the hood first. Putting
a car on the rack and dropping it through the bottom is the worst possible
way to remove a motor. What the f**k have you been practicing on? Hot
