e36 Engine Removal

Question for those of you with experience removing/installing an i6 motor:

I'd rather not split the tranny (removal or install) - will this work? I've removed the front end completely (rad support, etc.). I'm hoping that I can remove the tranny mount cross-member, hook the motor to my chainfall and, with the tranny sitting on a rolling jack, just guide the whole thing out the front.

Anybody done this - will this work? Or is it a lot easier to drop/remove the tranny seperately?

Thanks

No problem at all. It's easier if you unbolt the motor mount ears from the motor as well. Unbolt the whole PS pump and stuff and just hang out of the way.
