well after sitting for 6 months with the heads off i got the javelin on a lift today and pulled the trans and the motor is ready to pull. all i have to do is hook up the cherry picker and pull it :)

where's the best place to hook up the chain with the heads off?

I use a front accessory hole and a bellhousing bolt. If you're pulling engine and tranny together, just replace one of the tranny bolts with a longer one to accomodate the chain link.

Always grade 5, not grade 8! Grade 8 is OK as long as you can properly torque it in tight against the chain link, but if you're just using at as a lift stud stick with 5. Grade 5 bends, grade 8 breaks :) Ask me how I know. :)
