This is the way to do it. I had put retractor clamps on the springs to take the pressure off. I don't know if you have a III, but if you have it is very handy if the bar in front over the radiator is detachable. You don't have to lift the engine so high at such a creepy steep angle. If your Sonett does not have that(home-made)adjustment do it yourself before you're pulling your engine. Buy yourself a metal bar the same shape of the bar you want to saw out. Cut it to the correct size and attach it left and right with bolts to the frame. After doing this remove the bar again and then saw out the fixed bar. Do it in this sequence, else you may run the risk of a nose frame being out of alignment.
