it's a lot easier to remove the engine,,dropping the k frame is a pain unless you have access to hoist.

I believe someone said that you can remove the front bumper, air con, radiator, fan shroud, and then slide it forward from there? Not sure how accurate this is, might still need to raise the motor/drop the k frame.

i heard that as well,i think you still need to raise the engine so the sump goes under the crank at the back,,still a big job though..

If you removed the rocker cover it might get enough lift at the rear.
