A Satisfying Moment!
Remove hood and place front of car on car jacks. Disconnect air intake, exhaust manifold, fuel line and filter, radiator hoses, heater hoses, A/C system belts and hoses, alternator, starter, wiring harness where attached to engine, anything else attached to engine (except an engine hoist). After loosening the bell housing bolts and engine mount bolts, take a strain on engine and remove the loosened bolts. At this point I found I needed to remove the pulleys from the outboard end of the engine for clearance. Find a helper (thanks to my son Dan) and pull the engine!
