When I have to remove the 5.0L in the future for rebuild, etc., do I have to:
1. Remove the body to get engine & trans unit out?
2. If I have to remove the body, does that mean I have to drill out the rivets and remove those elephant ear and other panels that you install after the body is on?

Thanks.

Yes, I have a hydraulic hoist and an adjustible angle thing to tilt the engine with. Thanks all for the info.

Can a big block be removed similarly (w/o taking the body off)?

No Keith: You are stuck with your 512 CID 8 zillion HP monster until you come to your senses and get something smaller that won't kill you. Then we will tell you how to get it out!

PS, Haven't been over to see you in a couple of weeks, how is the build coming? I haven't touched mine in 3 weeks, been busy on honeydos.

Regards,
Bill
