Hey FalconGT351, are you using a hoist or a block and tackle? I can give you a heads up on pitfalls in using a hoist, but the first may not apply to you as your front bar is off.
Tip one, the one I used did not give sufficient reach to get the motor and gearbox out in one movement, I had to lower and grab the motor again a few times. The power steering lines don't take much weight :cry:

Tip two, with my gas system there are studs, not bolts in the rocker cover
these make good hooks to catch the brake lines . :cry: The lines can stretch about a foot from the firewall without breaking BTW. :)

Tip three, get a loan of a proper plug for the gearbox from a transmission place. I tried a plastic bag and a rubber band, worked well untill the ATF ate thru the bag mid extraction when the gearbox was statigically aimed at the cat convertor :evil: Most went in the cat and not on the floor. :oops:
Cheers
TW.
