It’s rookie, but it works: Use masking tape and a marker to label all the wires and vacuum hoses you remove from the engine, or else you’ll forget where they go. Be careful not to obliterate your labels if you wash the engine compartment while the engine is removed. You can also aid reassembly by shooting pictures of all the linkage and accessory-drive brackets before you unbolt them. Quick tip: Frequent engine swappers put all the wiring on quick-disconnects to save time.
