Question Yankin' the engine?

A member is selling me his non-2001 Workshop Manuals -- thanks!

Just located the fuel filter, under the right-side passenger's seat-back. Looks like the Fram one mentioned above.

But am thinking now about the procedure for pulling the engine. I will be replacing the clutch too.

Originally I'm sure the engine and transaxle were installed from below. I'm thinking it would be best to instead separate the engine from the trans, in place, and to lift the block up and out (I have a cherry picker). Any experiences otherwise?

I might not even need to take the hood off -- it props up nicely.

including rebuilding the SPI (see my threads)
