Afternoon, all

 

I'm making prep to pull my engine and transmission out- 8 with hydramatic because I need to rebuild the gearbox valve block (plus it leaks like the Exxon Valdez).

I'm thinking the easiest method will be to pull them both out as a unit, I'm going to remove the strengthening frame from in front of the radiator and the front grille to give enough room. The radiator is out already. 

There's a mount at the front (2 bolts that I see), the propshaft, a mount at the rear, the gearshift linkage, throttle linkage, gearbox thrill position linkage, speedometer and the electricals to remove.

I've pulled the generator off, I'll take the manifolds off and I was looking to use four of the head bolts as lifting points.

 

Anything I've missed? The service manual helpfully shows a nice sketch of one side of the engine and that's all there is on the topic.
