Separating Engine From Tranny, Then Rebuilding...

Well I finally got my truck running. The 258 I got for free is in the back of it and I wan to take it to the shop and pull it out. The 258 still has the TF 999 attach to it. My question is will I get any oil when I separate the tranny from the engine?


Once I separate I will mount the engine to the stand. What should I do then? Should I do a compression test or just tear it down? I was thinking of doing a compression test and replacing the heads with a 4.0 one. I was also thinking of making the 258 a 4.6 which would have to be torn down and re-bored. What do you guys think? The motor was rebuilt before by a company I think in Canada. There is a sticker on the motor and its doesn't look like it's been used much. The guy pulled it to drop a 5.0 in his jeep and said it ran great. I don't mind taking the time and money to do it right so any advise would be great...

There is probably still transmission fluid in the torque converter so just make sure it does not drop out. The ATSG manual says to attached a small c-clamp to the bell housing after you slide the transmission back to hold the torque converter from falling out.

I will be pulling my TF999 in a few weeks.
