thank you guys for the advice
have not been near the garage lately due to weather conditions.
but had plans to remove the engine during uncoming weekend.
according E-learn i do not have to remove anything but cables and pipes. i have disconnected pipes from the left side. so every part is actually free in the front.
cables are only connected to the alternator and lambda on mine, according to e-learn it can stay on. doesnt look like it is a lot of stuff on my left side, but the reason is probably that i have a lhd car.
yes i do have a 4wd and prop has been disconcted without any job done on the right side of the engine (mine is a lhd may be thats the reason)
the problem here is that the 100% of all bolts and nuts has coroded/rusted (salted roads). that means that i can not undo (easily) the nuts on the inner pipe, thats why im asking if its possible to pull it out without taking it off. there were no bolts left on the front pipe.. just some brown dots that looked like a small piles of poop
i do have an engine crane since its not the first time im removing the engine from a car. difference is that other cars were from the 60s and 70s and as you know alot has happend under last 40 years :P
did your engine has lifting eyes installed. mine did not..
according the 3,6. aha, thought that the heads are the same. good to know benzinabrera. does the 3,6 engine block fit on a q4 gearbox? intake is a minor problem actually im mostly worried for the exhaust manifold
thanks again for help
