Help!! on pulling motor
« on: November 19, 2015, 05:44:55 PM »
Hey guys need input on the best way to remove a 301T from the subframe. I know your thinking that's easy right? well the subframe is removed from the car. However there are no engine hooks to hook onto. I don't wanna just hook onto something that could break. How did you pull your 301?
Thanks
Romeo

I normally use a stud or bolt in the front and back of the heads on either side. Run a chain diagonally across the motor, bolt it at each location, and grab along to it with a cherry picker. Sometimes requires intake removal, but works great.

They also make a plate for mounting on intake where carb mounts.. Works great. http://www.amazon.com/Spectre-Performance-903-Carburetor-Plate/dp/B000BPUU1I

Not really ideal for his motor. Being it's a Turbo car. The flange is aluminum and is kinda thin that adapts the carburetor to the intake manifold. Could break from the weight of the engine. I'd just use a chain and studs as suggested in the back of the heads and the front.
