How To Pull an Engine

Photography by Terry McGean

It's a grueling task, but all gearheads have to do it. Pulling engines is a fact of life. Motors demand more-power upgrades; stuff breaks; and you haven't lived until you've bought a beater, pulled the engine, and sent the body to the junkyard all in the same day. Some guys swap engines so often that they should have Velcro motor mounts. But if you're not at that point, then jerking out an 800-pound chunk of iron from under the hood is probably way intimidating. That's understandable if you need to yank the engine from a late-model car with every trick gizmo, every computer-controlled option, and miles of smog stuff. Frankly, we'd hate to be you. But if you have a typical fullsize, carbureted musclecar, you should have no problem liberating the engine in a couple of hours. That's why we're here to give you a few pointers.
