[DML] Re: Pulling an engine and auto trans



Knowing what I know now, on the assumption that you have a lift and a 
transmission jack, I'd put the engine in first and then the trans 
when doing an automatic. For some reason pulling them out together is 
not such a big deal, probably because you are not trying to line 
things up at the same time.

Dave - when you guys did this, did you have the crossover pipe in 
place?
