360 wagoneer block removal

I am going to swap engines between two 1985 grand wagoneers and am looking for tips on removing the engine blocks. I recently bought a parts wagoneer that is the same color and year as the one I have now, but in surprisingly better condition, with a blown engine and just a few thousand more miles. So I have decided to switch over my motor, and trade components as needed. I only want to remove the engine, and leave the transmission in each respective vehicle. Has anyone removed the block/taken pictures? Just trying to do some research before I dive in

I've pulled many with the trans left intact. Bell housing bolts, remove inspection cover, torque converter bolts, leave the torque converter on trans. Takes a little wiggling to loose the pins to the bell housing, that's it. Clear all accessories, exhaust, fuel line, wiring, vacume. Pull front accessories, fan, alt, radiator, ps pump, and whatever else you see as obvious

It's not as bad as you think. Just TAKE YOUR TIME and don't over think things. Use a block of wood and jack up the tranny a little before you pull the engine out. I pulled the intakes to use a shorter chain so the cherry picker wouldn't have to travel as much. Use a pry bar to gently separate the torque converter from the flex plate. The rest should be easy. Best of luck.
