Response to engine installation question

Preferable to install engine and transaxle together. The drive train could be rolled under the raised chassis and lifted in place. Timing belt end engine mount into the chassis bracket first, install the M10 bolt then pivot the back end of the drive train into position. Install lower cross member (make sure the BIG M10 stock or similar washers used on the cross member to chassis bolts) and engine mount. Top side "dog bone" goes on last.

Remove the LH lower A arm before trying to install the drive train and keep track of where the A arm bushing shims during removal.
