The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Hi all,

I want to take the LS out for a refresh. I'll remove it from the bottom, as it went in. Can I do this with the transaxle in place, and move the engine forward as it comes out (down), or is it necessary to remove it and pull the torque tube back?
Thanks for all!!

Should be no need to move the torque tube. Will just have to remove whats in front of the engine to provide enough room (radiator, fans, etc...).

In a related post, I read that the easiest way to install/connect the LS engine assembly to the torque tube is to remove and attach the bell housing and clutch/pressure plate assembly to the torque tube first which greatly simplifies spline line-up. Then drop the engine in and reinstall the 5 bell housing bolts. This makes a lot of sense but it's worth noting that the clutch must first be aligned properly which requires the bell housing be attached to the engine (hence the clutch alignment tool).

When pulling an LS, considering that the the nub of the drive shaft only extends about 1/2" to 3/4" into PB/adapter, it would not take much forward engine movement to disengage the bell housing and clutch/pressure plate assembly, thereby negating the need to mess with the torque tube at all.

I am just on the verge of installing my LS so I do not have personal experience doing this but perhaps some other forum users could chime in. Clearance from the firewall to the bell housing bolts is an obvious concern and could be a deal breaker. I think protecting the driveshaft nub and PB is important as well.
