Engine removal...

Yes, I was able to remove the engine and transmission as a unit on my '82 300TD without removing the hood. Just put the springs on the tightest position, so the hood is held as high as possible, and there's more than enough room. I had the engine and transmission in and out at least 15 times while I was doind my engine swap, and didn't have to remove the hood. There was at least 8" of clearance between the top of the engine hoist and the grille.
