engine removal.. HELP (with pics)

OK! I've read all the posts... I still need help.. I've unbolted the torque tube from the bell housing, the engine is stripped completely, I even unbolted the entire oil pan (I think, although I still can't get it off, it seems to be stuck where the bell housing is)... I can't get the friggin bar out, I've been yanking and pulling all different angles and it wont budge, it won't come forward because of the oil pan.. I am determined to get it out the top, I started to unbolt the crossmember but I kept turning and turning and the bolt wouldn't come all the way out. plus I dont want to mess with the steering. any help would be appreciated.. I've taken some pics to show exactly how torn apart the motor is.

Well, in that case.....

1. you wont be able to slide the tube back because of the trans.
2. you cant slide the engine forward because of the crossmember.
3. you will either have to pull the crossmember or the transaxle.

Ok Eric,......I think I see the problem.

You are following the Haynes procedure, except for one important step, ok maybe a couple of steps.

Somewhere in the procedure for engine removal it will instruct you to remove the crossmember. I realize you want to go out the top and so it would seem like the crossmember wouldn't be in the way. However.......as you are painfully discovering, it is still in the way!!!
I'm not saying its impossible to yank it up out of there......but its not going to be easy and you will probably break/bend something in the process.

Drop the cross member. This has to come out wither you take the engine out the top or the bottom.

Unbolt the engine mounts. Don't unbolt the spindles from the struts. Drop the A-arms leaving them attached to the spindles. Mark the rear A-arm bracket where it rests on the chassis so you can get it back in the same location. Yes you have to unbolt the steering link at the steering rack. Take the bolt all the way out and don't loose it. You also have to unbolt the sway bar supports at the chassis.

Only takes a few inches for the pan to clear the cross member to pull the engine out the top. Now if you plan to drop it out the bottom disconnect the tie rods and A-arm ball joint to drop the cross member completely out of the way. Leave the struts and the spindles attached to the car.

simple 944 engine removal

You have to take loose the steering and the four big bolts that hold in the cross member. Then you take out the four littler bolts holding the rear of the control arm up and push it down. Don't keep bending the engine around before the input shaft is clear or you may bend it. And you DON"T want to have to put in a new torque tube.
