It's time to pull the engine from my bronco this weekend/monday.

I've only pulled one engine before (from a Mustang) and I used the stock lift brackets to pull it out.

On the bronco, I have removed one head from the motor (to diagnose the problem) otherwise I would bolt a chain to the exhaust manifold holes.

Can I bolt the head back on without a gasket, or can I bolt one chain to the exhaust manifold holes and one to a head bolt hole directly into the block?

I don't want to overthink this, but I don't want to make a stupid mistake either.

Thanks.

What about using the stock lifting eyes already on there? Edit- yeah, it's fine to bolt the head back on without a gasket so you can lift it.

If you're talkin about the brackets that are bolted on along with the exhaust manifolds, then it's hard to do that with the head off the engine :twak: :toothless

I agree though, you can bolt the head back on an lift using it...

Thanks for the help everyone.

The motor is ready to come out, should be hanging from a chain tomorrow night!
