To get the motor out of my Camaro I had to remove the driverīs side front wheel.I then placed an axle stand under the front and used the cherry picker from the side. The cherry picker arm did not extend far enough to use from the front, and from the side the wheel did not let the picker be close enough.
Also setting the axle stand low let me clear the fender better.

I have the same issue when pulling the SBC from my 32 Ford with a straight axle. I remove the front wheels and block up the front axle with a 12X12 wooden block under each side of the axle. Then I can pull the SBC straight out the front.

Jack up the front end and put it on jack stands,high enough for your picker to roll under the axle.your going to have to get under it anyways, to unbolt the trany,torque convertor. It also makes it easier on your back if the car is up a little higher while your unhooking everything.

Now the question is should I pull my Chevy small block with or without the trans? Nice 32 NOW THAT'S a HOT ROD! I have WW red wheels 48 ford dog dish hub caps no trim rings & a set of Polished Americans big's & little's to change up my look from time to time.

Pulling the two together is a heavy load and every time I do it the yoke I plug the tailshaft with falls out and dumps tranny fluid all over everywere.
Not to mention whatever crap is in the tranny pan ends up spread through the tranny.Seperate them.

I drain the automatic transmission fluid and Then pull both the engine and transmission ... Because I ALWAYS install a new front pump seal in the transmission. CHEAP insurance . I also find, that for me anyway, it is easier to hook the transmission back to the engine ( with the converter slid ALL THE WAY BACK ... ) with them both out of the vehicle.

I will admit to being older and stuck in my ways ... but I work alone most of the time. I can see the transmission and transmission going together BETTER out of the vehicle. I always use a few 3/8ths 16 bolts that are 4 inches long with the heads cut off ... screwed into the Chevroet block ... and then the transmission slides up ... nice and easy ... every time ...
