I am trying to remove the 3 Litre V6 from my 1990 4x4 and I am running into a few issues and hoped someone here may have some information that would assist me.
First off - should I leave the manual trans attached to the motor when removing? Some of the bolts seem awefully hard to reach.
Second - how and where do you disconnect the wire harness. I do not see any natural place for this and the harnesss run under other top-half engine pieces. Does this mean that I need to dis-assemble more of the top half to get the harness free?
Third - the steering cross member run right in front of the oil pan and will not allow me to pull the motor forward once I am ready to lift it out. Do I need to disconnect this steering piece?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
