Im trying to pull the motor out. Ive already taken the plugs out and pulled the pin out of the drive shaft. How do i seperate the drive shaft and u-joint from the motor?
You remove the 4 bolts holding the ball cap on the 4th main, then the motor can be pulled away. Don't forget to drop the wishbone from the pan.
Having a garage copy of the Ford Service manual in hand is helpful too
There's lots of great T folks up in Washington state that I'm sure would love to help!
However, in answer to your question - there are 4 bolts that hold the big ball (which has the u-joint inside) into the rear of the transmission. Got to remove those 4. Then there are 2 bolts on each arm, one on top, one on the side, on either side of the transmission where it widens out. Then there are 2 bolts at the front underneath the radiator. That's all that holds the engine in the frame.
You don't actually have to remove that pin that holds the u-joint onto the driveshaft.
Oh yeah! And as I usually forget, gotta drop the wishbone!
The universal joint remains pinned to the drive shaft when you pull the motor out. The connection of the u-joint to the engine is just a square sliding shaft and the motor simply moves away from it as you move the engine forward.
Dan's post embodies that most important of old sayings. When all else fails, read the instructions.
