Son pulled the engine from his old Corolla by standing on the fenders
with a strap over his back fastened into the headbolt holes. We built a
tripod out of pipe, muffler clamps and jackstands later on -- attach a
come-along to the jackstand at the top, push the car between the tripod
legs...

Hmph. I used to have snow tires. Never again. They melted in the
spring. I won't even start going on about my wood stove.

I remember that guy! He used his willy to press out a control arm
bushing on a 1965 ford, if memory serves.

I have removed and re-built engines although the engine I re-built was a Mazda rotary which anybody should be able to do.. Mostly, I removed engines to replace the clutch. It was just easier that way. There was one car that didn't require me to remove the transmission or the engine to change the clutch. What car was that?

You are right about that. You don't have to separate the engine from the transmission. The clutch is in the front of the car and power is transferred to the front using gears. I used to want a 900 Saab but have never owned one. The car I had was a Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV. In this car, the transmission is at the rear axle. You have to take out the driveshaft and clutch cover to get to the clutch. I'm guessing that a 924/944 Porsche would be similar..

I'm not sure of them. I have only worked on the automatics in them - the
THM 125 Hydramatic. It's just something I recall from 20 odd years ago.
