About to pull the engine out of a ‘97 LX450 for a rebuild. Other than the usual suspects (pumps, hoses, seals, belts etc.), what are some things that I will have access to in the engine bay that I should check and replace or rebuild? Anything notorious for needing attention? PHH already done. Already planning to pull the rear heater and bypass. Gonna do the Slee dual battery washer bottle move while it is out. Firewall seals?

Replace engine mounts; reinforce the frame at the steering gearbox mount.

Engine mounts for sure. They are the devil to do with the engine in the vehicle. Driver's side is quite often separated or on its way out.

are you pulling just the engine or the whole package? the rear heater lines are something that cannot be done with the drivetrain in the vehicle. for sure check those out.

Engine will be rebuilt. Transmission and transfer case will be removed but not rebuilt. Just new seals.
