I can see it.

"You bought that part? ok, turn this wrench for 5 minutes and then you can have it."

LOL Do it Dan... Do it.

Ohhhhh and IIRC this is your first time yanking an 00+ motor on a Bonneville/Park Ave. Enjoy their motor mounting system. It'* a little odd compared to the earlier gen Bonneville or the W bodies. Gimme a holer when you say "Why the F did they do that!" lol I'd like to hear your thoughts on the mounts.

Easiest way for you to do that is .... drop the subrame and lift the shell off.

Other than that, it'* not too bad out the top.
Pull the battery cables off the starter and trans
Pull the wiring harness connections at the fusebox and ...firewall.
Flop pcm onto engine with harness
Pull rear 02 connection onto engine
Drain fluids
Pull axles
Remove rear trans mount bolts going into trans
Remove from trans mount
Lower ps pump onto rack
Lower AC compressor onto subframe
Attach hoist and remove the two wheel well/body engine mount nuts and lower motor a little
Pull the two side mounts off the engine/trans
Lift up and out.

Pulling that stuff, just creates sharp edges to lean on.
