>I have a 35 pickup with a 49 flathead. I need to remove the motor
and possibly replace it with a 35 (if I can find one). Everything I read
tells me how to rebuild the motor once I have it out of the truck, but
nothing details the best way to, or even the "gotchas" associated with,
removing the engine. Any direction from the list would be most appreciated.

Hi gang,

This is the web site admin for Ford Truck Enthusiasts. As many of
you know, we have a technical article section on the web site. Its
been a while since an article has been submitted and that section of
the site is a little stale. We like to have a lot of fun stuff for
our visitors. If you'd like to submit an article which describes a
project you've undertake, even a simple project such as installing a
K&N kit, please feel free to submit it to kpayne ford-trucks.com.
We'll publish it on the web site, along with full credit to you and
you retain the copyright.

Later,
Ken Payne

I haven't done this myself, but I've been thinking about some day pulling
the motor from my 35 pickup to give the motor a more thorough cleaning if
not a complete rebuild. I did find the following in 'Ford 1932 to 1936
Engine & Chassis Repair Manual':

1932 Passenger Cars Only: The engine and transmission assembly
must be removed from the chassis to overal the transmission.
The fastest procedure for this operation is given as follows:

1) Remove the radiator and front motor support bolts

2) Disconnect the gasoline line, throttle rods, wiring,
exhaust pipes, starting motor cables and other accessories
to clear it from the chassis.

3) Remove the floor boards and take the transmission cover off.

4) Remove the transmission cover and gearshift assembly.

5) Disconnect the rear engine assembly support from the frame
cross member at the rear of the transmission, the universal
ball cap from the rear of the transmission and the brace
rods from the rear of the engine to the frame cross member.

6) Disconnect the front axle radius rods from the under side
of the engine.

7) Hook a chainfall on the engine and lift the engine and
transmission assembly out of the frame. The transmission
can now be removed from the engine and dismantled for repairs.

They don't give instructions for removing the engine from 35's since they
do say how to pull the transmission alone out through the passenger
compartment of a car (wouldn't work on a truck though), and that procedure
involves lifting the body off the frame.

I think this basic procedure would work on a truck, although as far as I
can tell, you have to remove the front fenders to get the radiator off.

Somewhere I've seen lifting plates that bolt onto the engine in place of
the intake manifold and have an eyebolt to use a normal engine hoist on.
