Default Engine Removal

I'm almost ready to pull the blown F motor from my 1972 FJ40 project. I have everything disconnected but have a question about what should be removed behind the block. I'm planning to install a 2F and use my existing three speed tranny. Will it work to just disconnect the bell housing from the tranny or do I need to pull the engine, bell housing, tranny and transfer case as a unit? Thanks.

You going to have to move your flywheel to the 2F, which probably means removing the clutch first. It's probably easier to either pull everything as a unit, or drop the tranny/transfer case first and then pull the engine with the bell housing.

Just my .

I'd drop the trans and TC first. Pulling all as one unit will be very heavy.

My vote is pull motor tranny & t-case together. As long as you have a good hoist and tall enough garage and at least one helper. Getting everything lined up to put it back together will be way easier. There are 2 motor mounts and 2 bell housing mounts to the frame. Tranny and t-case are only mounted to the bellhousing not the frame in any way.. ie tranny and t-case will fall to the floor and you'd have to support and stuff it from unerneath to get it back together. Can't stress enough height to celing. I took wheels off and put 78 fj40 on blocks with rotors an inch from the ground. took a couple times of shortening chains and closing garage door before I got it out. Front chain on hook , rears bolted to bellhousing/block bolts. Pulling tranny and t-case out the bottom is not much fun.

Pull it all together! It was designed that way and actually takes less time than separately!

x2, it is nearly impossible to get to some of the bellhousing bolts without pulling it.
