DO NOT use a jack on the pulley to raise the motor. No telling how much damage that will cause. I used the engine hoist to get mine (16V) up, but use a floor jack and a 2 X 4 on the corners of the oil pan to lower it after I was done. No problem...but I would hate to find out how much a 16V aluminum oil pan is if I damaged it....
The eight valve motor MUST be easier to work on then that damn 16V. Don`t be afraid of it. If you get in over your head you can always tow it to a shop to finish the job.
