73 Mach 1 engine out!
Hi All simple question do i need to take the bonnet (hood) off to get the engine out?
so finally the new CHI 4v alloy heads arrived and its time to pull the motor out and send to PLR engines here in OZ where the 351c will get a full rebuild with all the good stuff including a solid roller cam but i am asking do I need to take the bonnet (hood) off to get the engine out ? thanks

Take the hood (bonnet) off, it will make life much easier. Sounds like an awseome engine you have planned there.

351w - Ford racing GT40X 178 cc aluminum heads - Ford racing(crane) 1.7 roller rockers - Comp Cams 280H magnum cam .544" / .544" lift - ARP fasteners - hedman longtubes - magnaflow exhaust with X pipe -  MSD digital 6al box - MSD coil - optima red top battery - tuff stuff 140 amp alternator - ported weiand stealth intake  - edelbrock 1406 600 carb  - edelbrock rpm fuel pump - march pullies and brackets - Be cool fan controller - derale electric fan - FMX trans - motive 3.50 gears - traction lok - competition engineering subframe connectors - lakewood traction bars.                                            

Yes as it is too tight with hood on
It is much easier to do with hood off
Mark your bolt locatons with a pencil or drill small holes to insert alinement nails.

Do what Don (oms) recommended, I used a 1/8" alignment holes when I took the hood doors and fenders off the car its makes putting it all back together much easier.

Hood off. First thing I did to my car lol.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, you sure as Hell don't have time to do it right the second time.
