Pull every off you want in the sitting position, including fuel, and roll it over on it’s top to pull everything from underneath. It will easily slide on a flatbed. I thought you were a hillbilly, very disappointing.

I was actually going to suggest that.
Just pull the engine first off, then flip it over!
Sorry for your loss, too Mongler.

It really only takes a few buddies to roll one over. Difficult part is getting the fuel out and the exhaust apart to remove the engine. Reality is that only one side needs to be up far enough to access the exhaust and the engine is much easier to pull in it's natural position.
You should consider raising the side with the muffler, and removing the exhaust, or lifting one end at a time. That way you get more lift for your jack stands

Good one. Made me laugh. Hard to tell when you guys are trolling me. I'm not flipping the car, not enough room in the garage to do it and I've seen those car rollers and I've seen birdmans diy plywood rig for flipping his car on his restoration, seems like something I'm not willing to spend the money or time on. I cant really just set up one side at a time as I'm taking the sull suspention system off it.
How much room do I need to drop the fuel tank and get it out from under the car? I'm assuming the neck does not need to clear underneath as it comes out the wheel well right?

why not just make some 2x4 cribbing blocks? we used them in the oilfield all the time and set ridiculously heavy things on them... theyre solid. the wood hardly compresses and with short lengths like that are almost impossible to have snap on you. I personally wouldnt trust masonry blocks but thats just me. railway ties or wood would be a way safer option IMO.


the main problem is sinking into soft ground but sounds like you got that covered.

when my gf was 10 years old she was walking home from school and heard a guy screaming.. he had his car up in the air and just his legs under the car, it fell and crushed his legs and he was stranded there until she ran for help. its made me paranoid ever since.

If you get the back wheels off the ground with the axle extended you're high enough. It's only about 14 inches thick. Not sure on the mk3 necks, mk4 is definitely two pieces, top is plastic.

The cribbing blocks are a good option, I would stop at an even height as to the width for stability.

The cribbing under that rustang is not suitable/safe to work under. But cribbing is a good idea when it's constructed properly.

Listen to this man - he literally had a TDI resting on him once - for real, no joking here!

If you're scrapping the car, why take the engine out the top? Take the core support off, unbolt the subframe, and take it out the front.

If you have some room in your garage, I highly recommend quick Jack 5000lbs. Expensive but way better way to work under a car. I have one and makes for an easy lift and is very secure. And lowering is controlled smoothly. Best option shy of having a post hoist

Cheaper way is the crib it, it's done to construction machinery all the time. Just use hardwood.
