All:

I am pretty close to extricating the six out of the 1999 sport I am working on (must buy the fuelline tool and a Torx scocket for the bellhousing along with a couple other odds and ends) but I wondered something as I was pulling all the bits out of the way to get the motor out....

Where are the motor lift hooks or points? Confused

Thanks for any quick replies!

Garrett

Anyone? Nothing in the manual about this, and I hope to have the thing out in the next two hours.....

Thanks!

I've never come close to doing that, but I would guess you could either pull from the cylinder head bolt holes in the block or maybe from some bracket holes where belt driven things attach to the block, just use the regular blots with a chain inbetween.


PLEASE some one correct me if I'm wrong!

on the right hand side of the valve cover at the front and back are two larger bolts ( i think m14 or something) just put a chain link over it and a nut . thats what i have done all 4 times i have pulled an xj 4.0 . and those are EXTERNAL torx's btw . so don't go buy normal ones even though you will need normal torxs because you own a jeep .
