engine replacement

I am using a repair manual to replace my engine in my 93 mitsu montero. The next step is to "remove transmission assembly - see section 7" Section 7 explains how to remove the transmission from the vehicle. I remember years ago on my Chevy truck that I left my transmission installed and just unbolted the bell housing from the motor.

The question: Do I have to remove the transmission or just unhook it from the motor?

I really can't tell you the answer to your question, but can tell you this.........

I had never owned a Jap car until 2 weeks ago, and found out that they are not fun to work on, especially a Mitsubishi. They seem to put everything where you have to take half the vehicle apart to get to.

Good luck in your motor swap, hopefully it will happen quickly for you!

Oddly enough the R&R procedure on autozone.com is similar, only it has you remove the engine & tranny as a unit before removing the trans. I'm wondering if there isn't some reason they don't want you to leave the tranny where it is and lift the engine out.
