Pulling the motor isn't too bad. I lowered the transmission out the bottom & pulled the engine out of the top. I'm not a huge guy but I was able to get the tranny out on my own with the help of a standard 3 ton jack (might not have been the smartest but it worked).

As far as pulling the engine out of the top, I did need a second person because the garage door got in the way of the beam lift. I had to physically climb into the engine compartment & lift the rear of the motor up to angle it correctly.

Word to the wise: to make pulling the engine easier, consider removing the cylinder head. I then attached my load leveler to 4 of the head bolts screwed into the block. Not the best method, but the motor I was removing had bad rod knock so it didn't really matter.
