i looked at one last week and concluded it needed to go on a ramp as it looks a right job to do a clutch never mind an engine swap

Drop the whole lot out the bottom in one go including subframe. Word of warning! the carp design that attach the hoses to the rad! replace with new hoses at whatever the cost! once they have been disturbed they blow off when you least expect it!
its not too bad a job but heavey & time consuming. Do a clutch while its all apart.
Take car replacing off side drive shaft into g/box housing as there is a plastic speedo drive that fractures really easy
