This thread from when I did mine shows just about every way you can screw it up. It'll probably help.

As a slightly comical note,
heres how get em out it in about 8 to 10 mins...

1. climb up ladder to operators booth on front end loader.

2. Smash 15 foot forks through front windshield till they protrude from back.

3. Cut exhaust with a quicky saw, keep cat for sale to core buyers.

4. Remove 4 18mm bolts from cradle.

5. remove 3 15mm engine mount bolts.

6. lower car and remove forks.

7. remove air box and battery/battery tray with large iron bar.

8. remove 15mm from dog bone

9. remove 6 13mm strut nuts.

10. re-insert forks bending hood back into windshield area.

11. lift car allowing engine to hang by wires and hoses.

12. place 2 worn and discarded tires, no rims, below engine/cradle

13. grab industrial strap cutters, and "carefully" cut/dismember and maim every wire,hose and cable holding it in.

14. Let isac newton take over and engine will appear on ground ontop of tires.
