    On a serious note - Don't do your back in if it can be avoided. If it's any consolation, I've just taken mine out with a crane and was easy peasy to manouver out of the bay.

    Karl using a single jack and a piece wood is the best way to do it, we do this at work and its easy, you have loads of control over the engine, best of all it will only take an hour or so to have the engine out and on the floor


    Good luck mate

    taking engine out

    Where as I've man handled my gearbox and engine it's a bloody nightmare

    Got to remember you've got to get it back in! Which is harder trying to get it to line up with the box splines and bolt holes

    Let the ego suffer a bit and get a bloody hoist or crane of some sort

    without reading all the wang based comments,

    i've done probably 50+ engine swaps on mk2/3/4 golfs, a3/s3 etc etc and i have a crane but never use it, i have a dolly (4 wheeled frame / board)

    once all the loom etc is out of the way and complete fron panel off, i lower the car until the dolly takes the weight of the engine (i have wooden bolcks to hold engine / box straight) simply undo the engine and box mounts then jack the car back up leaving the engine resting on the dolly to be wheeled out of the front. no swinging around on a crane and stuff at funny angles.

    taking engine out

    Karl will be ok, he loves a gun show. We all helped get a van out the mud last year at Inters and Karl tore off his shirt and threw his guns at the rear to push.

    Im alive and well!

    yesterday i did very little, VERY cold, attempted to seperate the gearbox but, in all honesty being a total noob i didnt do it.
    Phoned my dad (mech) and hes going to advise on how to seperate them so i can lift the block out. I try to do everything i can on my car, but ive no mechanical experience and every so often give my old man a ring like 'ive done this, now what do i do'. Last thing i want is to start openinv the gearbox casing or something stupid.

    Anyway im off to see family today, till monday. I might do some more next week. Time is my enemy like it always has been.
    i have everything i need to titally rebuild an engine including a new turbo and all the supporting stuff. I JUST WANT THIS ****ING THING OUT.

    Phoned my mate about his engine crane, hes still using it on his 200sx, so thats still a no no.

    Once my new engine is all assembled i do want to put it in the car all complete (box, transfer box) so by then i should be able to borrow my mates crane. But for removal i just want to get the dam block out. Im doing an exchange plus some cash for a good one, and the other person is using my damaged bore block for a stroker.

    good luck! out of interest does anyone know how much these engines weigh...? whilst a 160kg deadlift is not bad it's a bar with evenly distributed weight and easy grip and an engine is just awkward.. still that being said i always try and lift awkward stuff just to say i did it!

    I picked up a complete 1.8T bottom end out of the boot of my mrs Golf all by myself - it was hard but doable - just about.

    It can be done! But don't just use a trolley jack - its so much easier

    yeah lifting it out of a boot is one thing but lifting it our of the engine bay is another. you gotta get the right angle to lift it id imagine.

    The block itself is heavy nevermind the rest

    I think Karl will fail. He thinks he's so super but I know he's not been in the gym much recently so he's over selling himself here

    Its definately do able as ive kept lifting my engine in and out of my cupboard at work although have to admit as soon as got the head on and mani's etc 2 of us have been doing it

    Jacks or something will be needed getting it in and out of the bay if doing the full engine as its one thing picking an engine up and moving it about but its a hole different kettle of fish trying to hold it in a set position for bolts to be done up and undone

    Although i'm sure Karl will manage some how....just pop some roids

    Stace, do you remember how awkward it was trying to mate my gearbox up to the block? It was so damn heavy on its own. The box, block, and head together will be impossible.
