Question Engine Removal: With or Without A/T???

OK--I am getting ready to pull the engine and auto trans from a 99 Outback. (Doing a total drivetrain replacement.) Which is easier: pull the engine out by itself and then drop the tranny --OR-- pull the engine and trans together?

And, I guess the reverse qpplication as well, as currently my replacement engine and trans are attached.

If you have a leveler for the engine lift and you will be doing it on jackstands its alot easier to remove them as one big piece.

It is easier to do them as one piece.....but......the autos have been known to crack at the bellhousing when removed this way. I would make sure to have some sort of chain or strap acting on the middle of the trans to spread the load.
