When changing mine on the 5a, it was quite a task and it had to come down.  Getting it back up was even more fun.  I think that I ended up using straps and levers to do it.  Maybe you have room to rig some sort of frame and pulley over it or the lift.

Lin, a 5 is a cake walk compared to a GM I think you are supposed pull the engine for those not really but it is a bear to change in a converted GM coach

Clifford, I have not seen it on a GM but assumed it was worse.  I was just wondering if it was possible to rig something that would make it less necessary to rely on muscle alone.

I don't how he would do it the thing is on the back of the engine up high with the tilted engine against the rear bulk head, they give you a hole to remove it from but not much room to get to hole you being thin you could probably get between the bulk head and the engine it doesn't work for me lol
