Greetings All:
Question Please. On average, with above average mechanical skills, how long ballpark you figure to remove a SBC engine from a full fendered car? Just Engine, not the TH400 trans.

Also, easier with intake manifold off & distributor removed I’d guess. Kids need to pull the engine from the Henry J for some needed R&R. Just trying to get some ideas time wise to correctly do the job. As always, Thanks for your input, it’s greatly appreciated.👍

With two people minimum, shouldn’t take more than a couple hours with the right tools.
