    It depends on the room in the engine bay. Some times yes. Some times it mkes it easier to pull the motor. Depends on the vehicle. The trans has to be removed to get to the rear chain.

    A word to you folks doing this. If at all possible have the mechanic order the parts. The mechanic wanted me to get the parts, I bought a timing chain kit, it had only one chain, (mine needs three). The parts house won't have the correct one until 5pm monday. I gues this is a "thank Jaeus" moment.

    I agree with Todd. Good price and you have your own motor, that you know is good. Not a motor from salvage.
