I'm getting ready to pull the motor (22R) out of my '85. I've never pulled a motor before. Any suggestions? wierd tools I'm gona need?

I know I'll need a cherry picker, what else?

Where on the motor should I attach the cherry picker? It has this big hook on the front of the head, should I use that?

from the looks of it I just need to disconect all the electronics and hoses, remove the exaust manifold, un-bolt the the motor mounts, and pull is straight out.

I looked in my manual, and it suggests pulling the head first, is that nessisary?

BTW: the tranny has already been removed.

Each wire you disconnect put tape on each end and write what it was and where it goes. Pictures help to.
No you don't have to pull the head off first. You see that big hook in the front, should be one on the back to, can use thes to lift out the motor.

1) disconnect battery
2) drain oil and coolant, disconnect and mark hoses and wires, and mark them!! don't forget fuel line, starter, exhaust pipe from manifold (and O2 sensor), throttle cable, etc
3) remove radiator and unbolt motor mounts
4) hook cherry picker to hook at front and tranny bolt at rear
5) pull out slowly, checking that nothing catches or is still connected (something is usually missed)

Good luck

Pulling a 22R is easy... and no you do not need to pull the head. I would think that would just be a bigger PITA actually.

I did pull the intake on mine and I think that it helped a bit.

I already pulled the tranny. So I don't ahve tow orry about the bell housing.

I pulled the radiator, and the exaust last night. I'm going to start disconecting hoses and wires tonight. If I'm lucky and get everything disconected I might pull the motor this weekend.

Degrease things as well as you can... a clean engine and compartment will make the job more enjoyable(?). Just be careful not to get any electricals wet - nothing sucks more than installing a new engine and having a no start due to due some blown electrical part. Does the current engine run? If it does, degrease and then start engine to warm and dry it.

pullin a 22r is an hour job <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

why drain the oil?

just remove whatever needs to clear such as the exhaust and that is it - I wouldn't even remove the exhaust manifold just further down. Then wires and fuel lines, rad etc..

Helps to have the engine level on the cherry picker and to drop the front end down (take off tires) as low as possible.

Piece of cake, have fun <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
