I used a motorcycle jack which has a big flat surface that I made real flat with a 18"x18" piece of ply wood that I use underneath the heat ex-changers of the engine to support the engine/trans, for a real stable platform. Then after I have the engine free I put about a 24" long 4x6 on my floor jack and placed that right in front of where the trans. enters the car diagonally and jacked the car off the engine and then lowered the motorcycle jack with the engine and trans and rolled the engine out from underneath the car. The lowered the floor jack with the back of the car onto jack stands.
Flat concrete, floor jack, motorcycle jack, some hand tools, and a few hours. going back was the reverse and took me about three hours.
I love these cars
