Looks like I will need to pull the engine in our 1933 so I am looking for guidance from those who have done it before.

- How much does the engine weigh, want to make sure I have a strong enough lift?
- I assume remove the hood half's, radiator and grill is easiest?
- Should the engine and trans come out together or should the trans come out first and pull the engine ? It looks like leaving the transmission in may not be a good option.
- What are the best lifting points?

Thanks for any guidance!

I take all the heavy stuff of the engine, exhaust and intake manifold, gen., starter, and I don't try and take the trans. with the engine. I made a head plate that I bolt to the cyl. head bolts and lift from that point. I'm sure there are many other opinions on how to do it. You have to pick the one you thing will work for you.

Yes, take all od the ancillaries off the engine. I R&R'd my 31 with the trans and free wheeling attached. Pull the right rear engine mount off the
frame and remove the clutch pedal. A helper is a real plus.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

I pulled the engine in my 8-95 using the same guidance you have been receiving here. Look back at my topic Time to Rebuild dating back to 12/2014. I removed the tranny separately first. Using a load leveler is a must. There are photos and great advice. It was a very rewarding challenge. Good luck.

Clutch pedal linkage is the "suck" to remove, no easy way to circumvent that,plan accordingly

Andy, your ALF 12 must be a bit different than my 8. I had no trouble once the right rear engine mount was removed. The clutch adjuster and pedal came right off the shaft. The tranny tower and free wheeling shifter need to be removed. I find it is much easier to install the clutch and transmission out o f the car. The brake pedal is on the clutch pedal is off . Don't forget the front splash pan goes in before the engine is set.
