Nice Gall. That would be so awesome to a guy like me to have access to. There is so much more I could do to a car with the correct tools. But hey, not complaining. I adapt with what I got and improvise. Kind of makes us think out side the box. And I do love challenges.

To answer the OP question, you drop from the bottom. You can support the engine from the top, unbolt mounts, unbolt cradle, drop cradle with transmission. That is about as simplistic as I can make it. Be sure to search other threads in the archives and be safe. Be prepared for the worse. I had a nightmare with the rear cradle bolts. Again. I had to improvise to get those out, and adapt for reinstall.

I can make it simpler.

Loosen, but leave the front cradle bolts in and tilt the cradle down with engine and tranny still attached to the cradle. Support engine from the top and tranny comes out the driver's side wheel well. Might have to remove some components from engine to clear trunk sheet metal when tilting the cradle, but it's doable.
