Not a bad pull at all... didn't even break anything. I'd say there are about 5 - 6 hours total time at a very easy pace.

do you think pulling the trans T-case and engine as an assemby was easier than pulling the engine alone?

on many cars is is but I was thinking the size/shape of the T-case woudl prevent that, apparently not.

dod you cut the lower metal in front below the grill?

For me in the driveway, it was easier. The ceiling in my barn is low, and with no lift, it just works. I did not cut the metal valance up front, it is black in the center there, so it dosn't show well in the picture. BTW, That valance can be unbolted if needed.

I can't believe that I'm the first on this thread to ask, what's going in? Rebuilt 1FZ? 350? Cummins TD? Personally, I love the 350 in my 80. So, what'll it be?

The marker light was removed to unplug various items that are contained in a harness that runs through the radiator support... need to get that out of the way. I'll snap some more pics in the AM....

I don't think the engine would come out with the transmission/transfer attached by just removing the hood. :D Besides, everything is right there with the front end gone... easy access to PS lines, AC lines, harness conections, etc etc.

I'll snap a pic of the leftover parts for ya....

The truck rose up at least a couple of inches.... I measure it right now, then after the install.

Yup, a big fat 1FZ will be moving this beast. I was considering a HIno Diesel 3.9L W04C-T (big turbo 3B), but that engine is for another project.

The original engine has been producing a knocking noise for quite some time now... and it has been getting louder. I don't trust it.... anyway, the trucks needs a smidge more power.

Great gas mileage..... hell on the calorie burn, though. :D
