engine removal

I am fixing to replace my 350 with a 383 stroker motor, was wondering if it would be best to remove the engine with the transmission attached (auto) or just the engine by its self.

Re: engine removal

Since it's an auto, if there is no need to pull the trans then I'd leave it. You'll just need to support it so it doesn't move around too much once you unbolt the engine. It really saves a lot of work doing it this way. Drive shaft, crossmember, speedo cable, trans lines and linkage wont need to be touched.

And welcome to Team Camaro.

Re: engine removal

I agree, if it was a stick pull both but for an auto leave the trans AND converter in the car.

Re: engine removal

I like to leave the tranny in the car when removing the engine from automatic cars. Support the tranny with a floor jack. Should be fairly easy, the only problem you may have is wether or not you can get the bolts out of the tranny (bellhousing), some cars are too tight to the firewall. Depends on your engine mounts.
