    I noted some discussion re the cab over trucks. Thought this photo may be of interest since it shows the ease of engine removal. Incidentally what kind of engine is that?

        Well,......Ease of engine removal after the bumper, supports, grille, brackets, radiator, core support, fan assy, wiring etc. are removed! And the vehicle in picture is new.....Picture a 'real world' truck with it's
        fasteners covered in dirt, grease, rust, accident damage, etc.

              How does one get the engine in and out with an overhead hoist with the cab in the way?

                  I think that the engine would slide out on rails, but the weight of the block would break that system if no chain was added; so the engine was probably hooked about half way out of the front.
