Engine block replacement
My Chilton manual says to remove engine with trans as one piece. Is this necessary?
Couldn't I just remove and replace the block?
The block IS the engine for the most part. It contains the crank, pistons, and the cylinders are in it. In other words the block is the engine minus heads and intake. Front wheel drive cars is easiest to remove engine and trans as whole by removing both from under the car (drop the engine/trans).
