Hopefully soon I will be removing the engine out of my 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente in order to do a rebuild of it. While I know all of the steps that are required to remove the engine, I was wondering if there are any rules as to the order of operation for the engine removal steps to follow?
Should the engine be uncoupled from the transmission before doing anything else? Should the motor mounts be loosened first? Should the exhaust system leading away from the engine be my first concern?
It can be assumed that the car is a classic car (carbureted/older) so not a whole lot of electronics involved, but I was just curious as to what the order is that the steps should follow.
