Re: pulling the engine

If you do both, I had minor issues with the T-bracket not getting out of the way, so until I unbolted it I couldn't get the transmission out from under the mount on the passenger side. That's really the only issue I had with pulling both simultaneously though.

Re: pulling the engine

Pulling both requires less things you have to take off and a lot less headache when putting everything back together but what you have to remember is: The engines in these cars were not dropped in, they were pulled up from underneath the car. Pulling it from the top with the transmission requires you to take off the transmission mount completely and pulling the engine up at a severe angle in order to clear your frame.

Re: pulling the engine

Thanks to all replys. Looks to me like i just have the shifter linkage to go.. I belive its just 4 bolts and the whole linkage should pop out. This is the first prelude ive owned or worked on, so its all a bit new to me. I definatly apreciate the help from everyone on this forum. You guys rock..

Re: pulling the engine

Had a good laugh at myself, sometimes you just gotta scrape some grease and find the cotter pins and pop of the cables. Then theres no need to do all the extra work with the linkage setup. Good thing i caught it before i made it ugly for myself.
