'97 Deville Engine removal


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Getting ready to pull the engine / transmission from my '97 Deville for a rebuild.

Ordered the Helms manual for reassembly, but ready to go ahead and rent the hoist to pull it out.

The question is - what points are best for lifting the engine/transmission? I see the lift bracket at the firewall near #7 cylinder (driver's side). Looks like the bolts at the top of the transmission / engine location would be another possible bracket location, but no clear points at the front of the engine (passenger side).

I have hoist brackets that will bolt on as need, but need to know the best points for lifting so I don't damage anything.

Do I need to pull the valve covers and use the head bolts as lift points? (hope not!!)
