    im on my first "swap" right now, from what i have been told and seen its better to pull the whole motor/tranny in one swoop. if you need info on popping your ball joints (which is a pain) or whatever just pm me ill walk you through how we did it.

    motion seconded, and motion carried, pull the motor/trans together lol.

    and also to the guy above ^. ball joints are not all that difficult if you have a pickle fork with an air chisel attachment :p

    I've pulled a engine with out the tranny once. We had to force it out though, remove the harmonic balancer, but I've gotten it out before. Will I choose to do it again? no. I'd rather put the extra motion to pull the cv's and and shifter and be done.

    so stop being lazy.

    when i took out an accord auto tranny, i used a tool similar to that. except. it was a 4x4 with some 2x4's at each end and a old seat belt to support the back of the engine up. worked great. didnt cost me a dime. :D

    yeah thanks for all the advice. i went and bought a chain hoist and hooked it to a beam in my shop rafters. after i wised up and pulled them together it was a breeze. only one hitch, i forgot to swap the japanese engine mount(the one under the cam gear)with the original one from my car. they had differant angles. so i had to pull the crank pulley and timeing chain cover and swap them over, other than that no problems at all. this was my first full motor swap and i loved it! i think im hooked. my next task now is to start be-building the old motor
