First job: disconnect PAS pipes. This looked as fiddly as the wires. Managed to get the high pressure banjo disconnected, but the other pipe into the engine was just too far out of reach. Followed the pipes and found a convenient pair of connections right near the top of the engine so the pipes just came out still attached lower down.

Almost forgot the drive shafts. If I wrote about it then it would be an epicwith lots of swearing, so lets just say they were difficult to remove.

After lowering the engine and moving the hoist umpteen times, I had disconnected the shift lever rod, support bar, lower cross member, a few more wires and hoses then finally the pony was liberated from it's trap.
