Engine removal tips
Rent a good lift and have a helper that knows what they are doing. An engine tilting device can help a lot.
A service manual may be helpful.
Take care when removing the exhaust system from the manifolds under the vehicle. The studs become rusty and brittle from exposure. If you snap one off you will have to weld one back on. It is a tight fit on the drivers side.
