87 5.0L Engine/Transmission Removal

I'm about to rebuild the 5.0L engine in my 87 F150, and plan to remove the AOD automatic transmission for overhaul at the same time. Is it better to pull them together as an assembled unit, or to remove the engine and transmission one at a time? Any hints or suggestions before I begin.

Pull them both as a unit, saves a lot of work. Plenty of room forward to pull with the rad. removed.

Thanks, that confirms what I was planning to do, but you never know what hidden surprises might be there. Guess it's time to go to work.

Thanks, Jake. I'm in the process of pulling them now. Everything is disconnected and they should lift out today.

Also take the hood off, that gives the engine lift more lifting room without hitting the hood.
