Z-bar and driveshaft removed. But the drivers side header is being a pain in the %$@! It would probably be less of a pain with the clutch release lever out of the way. I think I'll leave it and let it fall on the floor when the engine/trans is pulled.

The jackstands as positioned would be in the way of the engine hoist. I plan to pull eng/trans combo with the Mustang back on the floor.

But if I pull the transmission crossmember; how low will the transmission droop when I get the car back on the floor off jackstands? Will I need to support the transmission with a floor jack as I lower the car back to the floor?

It shouldn’t hurt to let the tranny hang down while you set the car down. That’s what I do with mine and haven’t had any issues yet. My electric hoist is up in the ceiling so as I pull my motor and trans , I have to push the car back. Real pain by myself but doable. When installing it I usually position a jack under the tail shaft to help level out the motor and trans as I stab it in.

Thanks!

Didn't make it to the store to pick up bolts for the lift plate today. I work early days the rest of the week, which causes my butt to drag by the time I get home. Motor and trans by Friday is my new goal. Still have fuel line, parking brake cable and brake likes to remove and might as well remove calipers.

Brett,
Earlier I told you to put the hook in the front hole of the carb plate. I believe I was wrong. I found a pic of my motor and trans bolted together with the hook in the back hole and it’s almost level. So if you were to put the hook in the center hole that would let the tail shaft tip down slightly and help to get the motor and trans out easier. If you tried using the front hole it would be tilted a lot more and you may struggle to lift the tail shaft up by hand to help guide it over the rad support. This is with a c-4 auto trans so a 4 speed maybe slightly weighted differently. I would try it in center hole, if it don’t lift like you want, set it down and try again.
