    Engine removal keeping gearbox in place

    Looking at removing my engine to clean up engine bay and paint , is it harder leaving gearbox in place and just removing engine ?

    ive done it both ways but prefer to pull the engine and box, trying to line up the gearbox and engine in my opinion was worse than mounting the whole thing back in in one go

    +1 on the engine and box out together. Much easier I find!

    Definitely pull it all as one. It's a bugger doing them separate.

    It's even easier to do it with the front of the car cut off

    Pointz will verify that
