V6 Calibra automatic. Easy way to remove engine?
« on: November 18, 2013, 20:30:29 PM »
Hi, i was wondering since there is no big and heavy flywheel and stuff is there any chance that i could remove that engine upwards using hoist? I know, i know. "Just remove subframe and drop the whole lot down"
I really dont want to remove gearbox and everything else if it is not necessary.
My idea is to remove flexplate from converter, leave converter in gearbox and start lifting. Impossible?

So has anyone succesfully removed V6-engine from calibra with automatic gearbox by lifting it out from the enginebay?
By brutal force yes, everything is possible but i intend not to destoy my calibra  ;D
