I pulled the engine (with manual tranny) out of my '80' 240d a couple of months ago using the Haynes manual. Yours will be a little tighter but if you can get your hands on one of those spreader bars which allows you "tilt' as you lift, you'll have no problem . This was the first time I ever pulled an engine and it remains to be seen how well I do putting it back in. I did the head, ground valves, new exhaust valve guides, and seals. All pretty straight forward. Good Luck

When I rebuilt the engine in the 240 I did not pull the tranny with the engine and there was not much too it, in my opinion. Nothing really hard at all about it. I would suggest going ahead and cleaning/painting the engine compartment while you have it out and replacing the front tranny seal.

I pulled my engine and transmission out of my 82 SD a couple of years ago and it wasn't that bad. I think it would be alot easier to pull both than to try and take just the engine out.

I pulled the one from my parts car with the transmission still attached. Went pretty smooth, but it took 2 people to get it completely out, the engine hoist did not quite go high enough, so I had to stand in the engine compartment and tip the tranny up while someone else pulled the whole thing straight back.
