In Pelican's tech articles, there is an excellent article to help with the removal of an engine.

4 bits of advice,

1. Don't forget to remove the ground connection around the back of the transmission.

2. Remove the heat exchangers prior to removing the engine and xmission.

3. Make sure to get an 8mm 12 point allen wrench for the CV joints. Also go to Sears an buy a 5/16 mm allen socket. Then remove 5/16 allen and install the 8mm 12 point. Now you can use a 3/8 wratchet to remove the CV bolts.

4. Oh, and be sure to buy new CV gaskets, muffler gaskets, and heat exchanger gaskets
