pull the rad support off, there are only 8 bolts holding it in place. If your truck is stock height (or you have a tall cherry picker) you can leave the condenser in place, but the IC and Rad will have to come out. The AC Comp can be set off on the pass side fender so you don't have to crack the AC system open. . .that'll save you a recharge. Mount the engine mounts and plates onto the motor before dropping it in. Make sure to leave the fan off until its all in, bolted down, and running well. . .you can even drive it on the street for a while to make sure everythings taken care of. . .it's a real pain to get in and out of there. . .oh, and the shroud goes on BEFORE the fan goes in :doh:. Other than that, it's pretty straight foreward. You'll need an extra set of eyes and hands to get the engine located back up w/the tranny, and an extra set of hands comes in handy to bolt the engine into place so it doesn't slide foreward and loose its engagement with the tranny :doh:. While you have it out, the bung that the dip stick goes through. . .pull the nut off CAREFULLY and put some of the special ford sealant on the pan around it, then put the nut back on. . .this will eliminate the possibility of an oil leak from here. . .and it's easier w/the engine out :doh:. That's about it, it's a pretty straight foreward deal. . .pulling the core support really makes it an easy deal, just forward and up and she's out.
