Step 5: Place a block behind the rear wheels and lever the car about 30 cm and release it on two iron axle stands on the front jack-points.
Step 6: Unmount the driveshaft from the gearbox and the cloth-wire.
Step 7: Unmount the wires to the oilpressuregauge (bottom right side).
|Step 8: Unmount the manifolds
(or unmount the carburator and exhaust completely),
Step 9: Put a wire around the engine and tighten it with a tackle block (just for extra security)
Step 10: Place a small trolley jack on wheels under the engine and make the engine rest on it.
Step 11: When the engine is resting on the jack, you can remove the bolts in the crossbridge under the engine. Now you can release the jack slowly (losen the wire in tact), and take the engine with gearbox and crossbridge as far down as possible.

big trolley jack (lever height about 90-100 cm) slowly,
and heighten the iron trestle each time you have lifted
the car about 5-10 cm.
Step 13: When the car is in the right height and resting solid on the iron trestle, you can slowly unmount the wire on the engine and pull it out on the small jack.
|Step 14: Then decrease the height of the car to about 30 cm, in the opposite way of how you levered it.|
