I don't even think Billboost could have it out in 3 hours. Try 6 hours to pull it and 7 hours to put it back in.

Though I am getting the timing down to an art now. Remove the drivers side valve cover, rotate engine until #1 valves are both loose. This is now TDC. Even more surprising, I drop the dizzy in and it was one tooth off from #1, move it one tooth and it falls right into place. No tweaking of the pump shaft. Damn I'm good!! LOL.

I did conduct an experiment yesterday with the engine brackets. I placed 3 washers under each bolt of the bracket to frame to try and raise the whole engine assembly. Total height increase was about 3/8". This worked very well because the oil pan doesn't sit on the front differential anymore.

was thinking if you cut the factory braces off and make a tubular bolt on engine mount, would that give you clearance to get the oil pan off?

No, its an argument issue with the hood and the front diff and the way the oil pan box sits behind the diff. If I raise the engine too high, the a/c compressor hits the hood. I can't lower the diff unless I buy this kit... 2.5in Suspension Lift Kit for 82-04 Chevy 4wd S10 / GMC S15 [242N2] | Rough Country Suspension Systems
I know it lowers the front diff some, but knowing my luck, it wouldn't be enough to remove the pan.

Hopefully, this will be the last time I pull it out. If there is a next time, its getting sold.

One thing I did notice during this multi-engine pull project is...

To do a full tuneup, requires removing the passenger side exhaust header.
Custom length ignition wires are required for plug/manifold clearances.
Small hands, a good working back and an endless supply of beer and Motrin.
Goodyear'* unlisted number.
I'll add more as I remember them.

Have you though of using the shorty Accell header spark plugs? Might not have to remove the header to get the plugs out. http://www.summitracing.com/search/d...spark-plug/yes
