trans and motor seperate. to get motor out use a chain and hook to the back and front hook and lift to clear, its a pain but its doable

Funny how a guy starts getting dirty on a project and and all the "experts" disapear. :confused013:
Should be able to separate engine from tranny without fooling with the tranny. Disconnect wiring, hydraulics, etc, then move to trannny engine bolts, and engine mounts, slide the engine forward a bit to clear the input shaft on the tranny, and pull it out. If I were you do a search for a factory service manual in PDF form, lots a help there. Go slow, step by step and try not to break stuff in the process. :headbang:

I had to remove the vacuum/PS pump to get in there and double wrench the mount bolts from the block.I left the other mount on.It still was no picnic.Definately remove tranny separately.

engine alone weighs close to a 1,000 lbs, you don't wanna get it too high in the air.

Thanks everybody,I didn't look like they were coming out together.I'm using a 3 ton crane to pull it,so it shouldn't be too bad,especially since I just had the trans out last summer,I know that drill already.What kind of engine stand/cradle is best used once its out?Thanks again guys.

I used the heavy duty one from harbor freight and it was still bending a little.It worked fine though.

It's been a while since I pulled a cummins but it is a breeze if you take your time and label everything. When you get it pulled, I recommend leaving the hoist connected to the floating end of the engine except when you are rotating it. I just couldn't bring myself to trust the stand. When putting it back in, one side or the other of the mounts should be slotted to help you wedge the beast back in it's place. Just my two cents. Chris
