to pull engine and trans, just disconnect everything. put your hoist leveler bar so that it will tilt as far back as possible. remove the grille from the hood and disconnect the hood hinge springs.

Are you pulling the wire harness out of the car? There is no disconnect for just the engine part, it is all or nothing. the harness that comes out of the fuse box is for lighting, horns, etc. the engine part comes thru the firewall on the other side. you will need to take most the dash apart to remove that side as a complete unit.

Are you transplanting all this into another car?
