I like to pull out the motor and tranny together. :biggrin: Easier.

You can use a lift plate like this on the intake. :biggrin: Its just a matter of manuevering the engine and tranny and getting the right angle.

when i got my 305 pulled out we had (dont know what this is calle) some bar which can twist to angle the motor. it also has a chain. i bolted the chain on each corner of the intake and with the engine hoist voila :0

i like to separate the motor and tranny, and just pull the engine. if you have an automatic, just remember to unbolt the torque converter! a lift plate makes life easier, and a leveler makes it perfect.

you can remove the exhaust manifolds from the heads, or remove the exhaust at the collectors- your choice.

otherwise, it is as simple as it looks. if i am not mistaken, your 400 should be a small block, so there is plenty of wiggle room in the engine bay. you can take off some of the ancillary components (fan, ac compressor-if equipped, alternator), but it is not mandatory.
