So I finally got around to pulling the motor. In between work and family time I had been prepping the pull and getting everything freed up. Took a couple days vacation to extend my weekend and went to it. As you can see I did this outside in the yard. Fairly flat land but have concrete blocks for support pads and a sheet of 3/4in plywood to keep the cradle on. All is covered with a big tarp to keep out of the rain. I have no garage and a gravel driveway so this build may be a little harder than what most ppl are accustomed to but hey, I'll get it done one way or another. Motor is a 2.5 iron Duke and isuzu trans. Will possibly sell parts off of this setup. Just let me know what you guys are interested in and I'll see what we can work out.

I will be swapping in a getrag 5 speed and a 3800sc in its place. Finally excited to be making some progress on the car as it has been sitting a majority of the year.

Good luck with your project.
One of my favorite Fieros was a gold 87 coupe. Long time ago...

I always hate to see anyone using concrete as a support, especially on uneven ground as it can easily crack. I think thick blocks of wood are far better for that.
I've only ever pulled an engine 'outside' like that once, never again, it was hell so kudos to you for making it work.
Good luck with the swap.

Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

Ik its hell already...I thought about just pouring a slab to keep the car on before I started this project but after diving into it its a little late for it now. I think the concrete will hold for now since it is just the empty back end. I do have doubled up 2x12s as well for when the motor was in it. This build will be slow but I plan on doing a majority myself and really learning this car in the process. Will keep you posted with plenty of pictures.
