Front subframe removal goes mostly according to plan | Sunbeam Tiger engine swap project
Removing the Ford 260-cu-in V-8 from the confines of the Tiger engine bay takes a lot of lifting, jacking, bracing, and swearing under my breath. As you may know, you have to drop it out from the bottom, which is quite different from most cars. The biggest item to move besides the engine itself is the subframe that holds the steering rack and front suspension. It's one big unit that is held in place by four long bolts that go through the subframe and up into the frame rails of the car.
