Engine Install

I just finished replacing the head gaskets on my 2007 FJ and now I'm having trouble getting the engine back in. I can't get it to line up with the transmission and mounts. I'm trying to do this without taking out the transmission and any help would be nice!

Re: Engine Install

bolt it to the mounts first and then push the trans up against it, the trans is probably sagging since its not being supported by the engine tie in

Re: Engine Install

I ended up jacking up the trans from the bottom which made it easier to align then once i got the bell housing bolted on I lowered it all together.
