Our first step was to get our tired old 350 V-8 out of the 'Burb. With 6 inches of lift and 35-inch tires, we had to try plenty of high-altitude techniques to get it out. First, we flattened the tires. That didn't work. So we removed the tires and wheels and rested the front axle on its rotors. After that we were able to get the engine just barely over the core support.
