Re: I'm pulling the engine/gearbox out - any tips? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I had to pull my engine twice.
Well, not really HAD to, but as long as I had it that close, I wanted to make sure the clutch was working properly.
anyway, yes , cut the radiator brace , it makes things So much easier.
( I welded two angle iron pieces on it and then drilled for bolts.)
I did not have to take apart the suspension. I had enough room to swing the engine side to side and side out the axles ( as the shop manual states)
I DID think to use zip lock bags over the axles and hubs. Kept things much neater and easier to replace.
NOTE: The manual told me to remove the axles with the bearing caps vertical.
Good Idea! ( I jacked the car and rotated them )
Makes replacing the caps a snap. After finding all the needle bearings and re-packing them in!
