I never pulled a FWD transversely mounted motor before. On a 5 speed escort can the motor be safely puled without the trans. My 5 speed in my 88 is mostly ok. Just need a good flush as it still has the fluid in it from the factory. Could the trans also be pulled without pulling the motor? Down the road I was to build up a trans with a LSD and Id hate having to pull the motor to swap a trans. Any advice would be most helpful as I'd likely be on my own with pulling the motor... egh.
