84 Spider Project: Electrical fire damage under the hood.
Just discovered that the transmission bell housing in the car is broken near where the starter mounts. (Previous owner must have forgotten to tell me about this.) Car came with a spare transmission so I will need to pull the transmission out of the car. Just read a bunch of posts on this topic and I am pretty sure I am going to pull the engine and tranny assembled. Most of the stuff that needs to be disconnected from the engine has already been disconnected (or burned off). I think all I will need to do is pull the radiator and deal with the exhaust and most of the engine dis-connect work will be done. Should I expect any problems (breaking bolts) with disconnecting the exhaust pipe from the headers? Should I be thinking more about pulling just the transmission and leaving the engine in the car? Thanks Much!

Most of the stuff I would have to remove to get the engine out is already removed. I have been removing burnt stuff for a while. Most of the wiring, hoses, and air handling system components are out of the car already. It also looks like I will be able to get the engine compartment and engine clean if I pull the engine. Getting the engine on an engine stand to get a better look at it (although I don't know what I expect to see) might also make me more comfortable with this engine that did go through a fire. Wondering of there is anything worth seeing if I flip it over and pull the oil pan?
But first things first: Have to get it out of the car. Thanks for your opinions!
