Engine - removal leaving automatic transmission in vehicle

Note: Refer to the warning in Section 8 before proceeding. A suitable hoist and lifting tackle will be required for this operation.

1 Proceed as described in Section 9, paragraphs 1 to 17 inclusive, but additionally, where applicable, disconnect the kickdown cable from the carburettor/inlet manifold.

2 Unscrew and remove the top engine-totransmission bolts which are accessible from the engine compartment. Note the location of the earth strap, vacuum pipe bracket, and transmission dipstick tube bracket.

3 Proceed as described in Section 9, paragraphs 20 to 24 inclusive.

4 Working through the starter motor aperture, unscrew the four torque converter-todriveplate nuts. It will be necessary to turn the crankshaft, using a suitable spanner on the crankshaft pulley bolt, in order to gain access to each nut in turn through the aperture.

5 Unscrew and remove the remaining engineto- transmission bolts, and remove the bolt from the engine adapter plate. Where applicable pull the blanking plug from the adapter plate.

6 Remove the two securing bolts and disconnect the engine-to-transmission brace from the engine and transmission.

7 Lower the vehicle to the ground, and support the transmission with a trolley jack, using a block of wood between the jack and the transmission to spread the load.

8 Proceed as described in Section 9, paragraphs 30 and 31.

9 Raise the engine until the engine mountings are clear of the crossmember, then pull the engine forwards to disconnect it from the transmission. Ensure that the torque converter is held firmly in place in the transmission housing, otherwise it could fall out resulting in fluid spillage and possible damage. It may be necessary to rock the engine a little to release it from the transmission.

10 Once clear of the transmission lift the engine from the vehicle, taking care not to damage the radiator fins.
