engine swap bolt location

I'm getting ready to put in the 400 sb. Want to install the intake manifold while on the engine stand. Any special considerations as to where to bolt the engine hoist chain? Aluminum heads and intake. Thanks!

Re: engine swap bolt location

I personally like to use a carb. plate. If not, use exhaust manifold rear on one side and front on the other.

I use a tilter with four chains - one to each extreme corner intake bolt, with Grade 8 bolts and hardened washers, then replace the longer Grade 8 bolts with the stock intake bolts (no thread sealer needed on the four corner bolts - they're blind-tapped).

I do it John's way, 'cept if the heads have accessory holes I'll use those for the front 2 chains.

Re: engine swap bolt location

When you remove the tranny with the engine, do you typically leave them bolted together or remove them seperately?
The last 2 times I swapped 69 engines, I left them attached and it seemed to be much easier.

Re: engine swap bolt location

Personal preference to leave them connected or pull apart. If you've left them together and was easier for you, then I'd do the same again.

If you leave the trans in the car, you will have to support the front of it. If I pull them together, I use a middle exhaust bolt on one side and the rear most exhaust bolt on the other and it gives alittle slope to the rear for removal and install. One can pick up the rear of the trans very easy with one hand.

If I pull just the engine, I use diagonal head accessory bolts and engine is level.
