James: Glad to see it's started.....I've always had hands bringing it down, but many have done it solo. I did put mine in this last time by myself, so I don't know that coming out would be a lot different. I use an ATV jack for the up/down, so I'm not balancing on a floor jack.

One other tip, when I dropped my engine prior to getting my lift, I raised the car moderately high and level. When the engine was secure on my ATV jack, I then lowered the front of the car, which raised the rear end way up and clear, then I lowered the jack and pulled the engine/trans out. This technique was suggested to me by Bill Miller, and it worked very well!

I'm going to be gone until before New Year's, but I'd be happy to perhaps help some time after the new year. I've got a rod bolt stretch gauge for when you put some good rod bolts in, much better than a torque wrench.
