taking it out the front with a cantilever hoist. I think they just
removed the radiator, p.s. pump, the two braces running across the
radiator, and the front bumper. They may have removed the oil pan to
help clear the front frame crossmember. I assume you would have to
support the tranny. I think the engine itself weighs about 700 lbs,
the tranny another 250. I have two 1972 winnys with the same
chassis, same 413 in them, and I know I will eventually have to pull
an engine. Both mine are Indians. In my case the hard part will be
convincing my wife that we Need a cantilever hoist. If you can get
the manifolds off it will have more clearance on the sides. You
might want to remove that big water pump housing to get more vertical
clearance. I would enjoy hearing how it goes for you. If you could
take pictures it would be a nice addition to the community of
knowledge. Do you have the Dodge Motor Home Chassis Service Manual
and the Chassis Parts Catalog? I am in N. Virginia, Alexandria.
I also need to rebuild both 727 trannies - they work fine but they
drip from the senile old seals! Dave Denison

rides on the same Dodge M300 chassis.I pulled the engine & trans together
using a leveling plate which bolted to the manifold in place of the carb.
Still pretty tight coming out the front .
