Here is a response from Leland Jaboson, that was posted in the old TCCOA forums
"Yup theyre rotunda partz, and at 230 bucks a set (when I checked 6 months ago)youre better off just hooking a couple of bolts to a chain on a diagonal and hoisting her out.... lol "
EDIT: Here's another one from Jason Houston - old TCCOA forums
Well I did pull mine but I didn;t replace it with another one...... Put the same one back in. Really it should be the same any SOHC engine has all the same connections. For your info i pulled mine out, it sat in the garage for about a year, Wasn;t going to put it back in, doing lots of different mods to the car and was going to go with a new 99+ engine or a DOHC engine of some sort. But We sold our house and the car had to be out of the garage!!!! So in about 3 days had it all back together running like it always had been.... Remember this was a year later, all wires had been removed all parts were on the shelves of my garage, only an empty shell car no engine or tranny in it....
Oh yeah BTW did i mention that i did finish one of my mods to the Car before I had to hurrily put it back together......... I did manage to put a t-45 in it.
But thats another story.....
The only thing I had was an engine hoist and a floor jack.... me and a Buddy
Just some tips..... I always fine it easier to remove the engine and tranny all it once, but that is due to my limitations of the car being stuck on the ground, If I had a lift or a Pit I would keep the tranny in, in my case it all had to go anyhow..... Radiator has to go of course, i also removed all the front clip accesories.... Be sure to remove all the wires to avoid having the engine swinging in the air and have one wire holding it to the car...... I had this happen at a bad time, actuall just took a pair of snips and cut it immediately, easier to splice it back later..... but just becarfull.... One last thing if you pull both at the same time do yourself a favor and take the top starter bolt OFF once you get it all pulled out... it is a Pain in the A$$ to get to when everything is in the car.. Not hard if yo got two people with flashlights and a 3 foot extension.... i have that but you get my point
