I don't have an auto so there is only what I picked up from other write ups. I'll be glad to add it if you can find me some pics.

As for the Overflow bottle, if you are picking it up with the hoist you'll need to wrap the chain around the sub frame. So the bottle must be removed. However, if your using a lift, this step may be pointless. I would disconnect the line to the radiator just to have all the room you can get to reach the A/C compressor. its a PITA.

Ah ok, I think I have some pics for you. When I did it we just jacked up the body, we never touched the overflow bottle. Turns out no pics of it, but its just 2 lines on the radiator.

its really not keith. i did it by myself twice. the first time it took about 12 hours. the second time only 6-8 hours. this next time i plan on getting her out in less than 4

its easy if you do it one step at a time. nothing on this write up can't be done with a standard ratchet and socket set. there are some places where a deep well socket comes in handy, as well as the special tools i mentioned at the beginning.... and keith the first time i did this.... i only had a basic knowledge of motors. and i followed a couple writeups for v8's and v6's to get all the steps i needed. thats why i wrote a complete one for 3.8.

i think the worst part was the A/C compressor i think i'll leave it assembled to the motor and have the system charged and serviced afterwards.
