Easier Engine Removal

When I recently removed the engine of my MGB I discovered that if the rear of the car was jacked up instead of the front, the engine came out and went back in much easier. This was because the engine did not need to be angled as much as when sitting on all four wheels...also I had lots of room to work under the car to attend to the cross-member rear engine support. I pulled the engine and transmission together and used two auto ramps under the rear wheels which gave just the right amount of clearance for removing the engine.
