Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is***** am an ASE master tech, glad to help you with this.
I have done this job before. The easiest way to get the engine out is to lift the body off of the frame. You can get the engine out from the top, but you have to tip the engine upright while it is coming out. You can have the body up in an hour or two. Hopefully this helps you out.

Hello again Dan here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you’re not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help.
