And ... I leave the car on the ground. I find it easier to move the car out
from under the engine/gearbox than to move the engine hoist on my crumbling
concrete floor. I don't have an engine leveller either, and as a one man
operation, I find it easier. IIRC, I can balance the lump with one hand to
avoid bodywork and push back on the car with my outter thigh. YMMV.
Next, I expect we'll have someone who flips the car over on a rotissery ...

also .. its much easier when removing the engine and tranny as an
assembly to elveate the front of the car on jack stands MORE than the
rear of the car.. ...
this gives the tranny space to swing DOWN at the rear without hitting

Bill, I do the opposite -- I jack up the rear of the car so the tranny
swings down to a more level position and then you don't have to stand it on
end to get the angle for removal.
